Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow (2004) The lives of reporter Polly Perkins and her ex-boyfriend, Sky Captain Joe Sutton, intersect. For the past three years, large robots have been roaming the Earth, taking what they need, and vanishing as quickly as they appeared. Joe and his technical assistant Dex have been investigating and battling these mysterious robots. Meanwhile, many of the world's scientists have been systematically kidnapped. A Dr. Jennings, believing that he is the next target, tells what little he knows to Polly. His beliefs are that a Dr. Totenkopf, who has not been heard from in over thirty years, is carrying out a project he started prior to World War I, this project which may be associated with these robots. Polly and Joe, with Dex, join forces to find Totenkopf, which may not be easy due to their still antagonistic relationship. As they piece together Totenkopf's plot, Polly and Joe realize that stopping him from carrying out his grand plan of creating his version of a Utopian society may not be as easy as killing him.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Polly Perkins: [after Joe wouldn't let her go back to get her case of film that was in cave that was about to explode] You should've let me go back for my film. Joe 'Sky Captain' Sullivan: You're right, I should've.
  • [after Dex unplugs the Telsa coils that previously electrocuted Dr. Kessler] Joe 'Sky Captain' Sullivan: Is it safe? Dex Dearborn: Well, there's only one way to find out. [Sky Captain and Polly cross the threshold together and are relieved to be unharmed] Dex Dearborn: I meant throw something.
  • Dex Dearborn: I thought you said this thing was big? Can I have it? Joe 'Sky Captain' Sullivan: You find out where it came from and I'll buy you one for Christmas.
  • Polly Perkins: It's been three years, Joe. You're not still mad at me, are you? Can't even remember what we were fighting about. Joe 'Sky Captain' Sullivan: You sabotaged my plane. Polly Perkins: Right. Joe 'Sky Captain' Sullivan: I spent six months in a Manchurian slave camp because of you. They were gonna cut off my fingers. Polly Perkins: Joe, for the last time, I didn't sabotage your damn airplane!
  • Joe 'Sky Captain' Sullivan: Come in, Dex. Dex Dearborn: Look, whatever you do, don't shoot! Joe 'Sky Captain' Sullivan: Er... OK! Dex Dearborn: You shot it, didn't you? Joe 'Sky Captain' Sullivan: Yes.
Movie Trivia:
  • The entire movie was shot against blue screen, with everything except the main characters computer generated. This was one of several movies to take that approach (although which was first is debatable), including: Immortel (ad vitam) (2004), Casshern (2004), and Sin City (2005), the last of which shot on High-Definition digital cameras, like this movie. Because of the film being totally shot against blue screen rather than via orthodox locations and sets, filming was completed in just 29 days. Normally with sets and locations, filming could have taken the best part of a year to finish.
  • To increase flexibility with the film's editing process, Kerry Conran shot each of the dozens of extras (who weren't physically interacting with the main characters) individually on the blue screen, so that he could manipulate them in the final shot to his own liking without having to re-shoot the entire scene.
  • After seeing the first 6 minutes of the original short upon which this movie is based, Gwyneth Paltrow agreed to sign on at an indie wage without a script.
  • Angelina Jolie's part only took three days to shoot.
  • The film used a unique combination of Adobe After Effects Plug-ins applied to achieve the film's unique look. No new technology was created to achieve the stylized look of the film.
