I came across the trailer of a new French movie which will be released later this April which features a scene of this fictitious Cirrus Airlines A380 taking off:


Now i'm just curious to know if this is purely computer generated or if Airbus agreed to place this color scheme on one of their whalejets just for the movie? Anyway, it's looking very real!
Trailer can be seen here:

Ironically enough, Cirrus Airlines was the name of a German regional carrier which ceased operations last year.

First comment, the ac in question is A380 MSN 004 F-WWDD, the Airbus testbed.
Was she used really? That remains to be seen.

That's what happens when you open a carton of tomato juice that's well past it's use-by date.

I don't think so. If you look at the Airbus decal on the nose it's a lot crisper than the titles on the fuselage and engine nacelle. So probably just a case of adding the livery on in post-production. Still convincing, though.

So much for C9 being a regional airline.

The audio is all messed up, I can't understand a word they're saying.

same for me cause it's simply French...

If I'm not mistaken it's the same ac that was in ZRH for two days testing (January) before SQ arrived.

I'd say it is computer-made. If you look at the letter R in "Airlines" it crosses over a door. If it was really a livery, the door's frame would need to be clearly visible for emergency reasons, breaking the R-letter.

But the movie seems funny. Is this the first time A380 is used as a set in a movie?

As a set yes, seen in fleeting glimpses elsewhere though:

The 2005 film "Flightplan" with Jodie Foster featured a slightly modified "A380" (referred to in the movie as an Elgin Industries E-474) in the fictional livery of the airline in the movie "Aalto Airlines" - the livery, though, is little more than a polished metal fuselage with Aalto titles, and is for the most part digitally rendered.

Quoting retrolivery (Reply 11):

True, had forgotten that movie. Interesting for a Finn is the name "Aalto Airlines", as in Finnish aalto means wave. It is also a surname (most famous Aalto being Alvar Aalto). I wonder if the name carries any connection to the Finnish word or is it just coincidence? Does "aalto" mean anything in any other language? Sorry for this being a bit OT.

I say it's real. If you look closely at the "S" of Airlines, you see it is behind the vapor that forms above the engine. You can see that on the preview picture here too.

Seems like they used the real thing for interior shots as well, so why not put a few stickers on the aircraft for exterior shots?
