While the zero-gravity shot looks technically impressive, it will likely be a relatively unremarkable space shot in the context of the episode. But another shot Eisner shared from a Season 5 episode of The Expanse will have more visually extravagant results. Eisner’s video shows the camera not only dropping in from an immense height, suspended from a crane, but then the shot continues with a Steadicam operator, seamlessly transitioning from a high altitude establishing perspective to a ground-level perspective. We can’t be sure exactly what’s being captured in this shot, but the extras suggests we’re seeing events back on Earth.
Finally, while less technically impressive, here’s Thomas Jane celebrating The Expanse Season 5 renewal in the spirit of Dr. Strangelove‘s Slim Pickens.
Eisner’s videos aren’t our only look into The Expanse Season 5, which will follow the events of the fifth book in The Expanse series by James S.A. Corey (the pen name of authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck), Nemesis Games. The official social media account for The Expanse shared a celebratory video from the set on the day Season 5 filming began in October, raising high the flags of the legitimately salvaged Martian gunship that serves as the series’ central location.
Of course, Season 5 of The Expanse is still more than a year away from its premiere. Season 4, on the other hand, will debut on Amazon Prime Video on December 13.
