I certainly think it will be more than that yes, but I am also fully prepared for that too of course!
Apparently Scott has used as many practical effects and huge sets as possible, which seems pretty clea from the 3 minutes or so of footage released so far. I'm all for CGI when use correctly and from what I have seen of this so far it looks infinitely better than those awful looking star wars prequels and LOTR movies. I think even if this film is shite, it won't be because of the visuals.
I'll be watching in 3D btw, it's Ridley ffs! Gonna be awesome.
