A huge savings. The backgrounds can be stylized (not realistic) and they get away with it because it's "the look" of the film.
Personally, I don't like this. If a film truly fits that mold, as with SIN CITY or 300, then OK. But the idea of more and more films being shot green screen is unsettling to me.
I don't like the idea of live actors on green screen, but I wouldn't mind seeing more animated work similar to those two you mention.
I'd like to see Miller involved in more "R" rated versions of his Daredevil story involving the death of Electra by Bullseye. (and end it with that scene)
OR Batman, Killing Joke...in a couple years.Watchmen should be interesting.
All that said, special effects movies are going to be shot using allot of green sceen...it's a matter of dollars and cents.
