Everybody good? Plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
Once landed on Millers planet, and in the 7 Earth years per their hour time dilation field, the audience can see the receding wave that has just passed. The event flow is real time and only takes a few minutes. The next wave is almost on top of them when it's noticed and, considering the speed at which it took to arrive, there was too much action from that point before it actually hit, when they should have only had seconds. Also, the crew didn't seem to panic enough for self preservation, Doyle having died after lingering unnecessarily. As soon as the ship is on the other side of the wave we see the next wave approaching in the background as the landing struts extend. The action / conversation flow is continuous between the waves and is again only a few minutes, yet the dialogue leads us to believe 3/4 of an hour has passed while waiting for the engines to drain. In terms of the context of the situation only around 10-12 minutes was experienced on Millers planet, meaning just over a year of Earth time which would have been similar to original expectations, yet 23 years passed for Romilly on the mother ship.
There are no opening credits, except for the title.
The 70mm IMAX version is two minutes shorter than the regular 70mm, Digital IMAX, 35mm, and digital projection versions. This is because the end credits are played in an abbreviated slide-show form (rather than scrolling from bottom to top), due to the size capacity of the IMAX platters, which can hold a maximum of 167 minutes of film.
