As always Dragon is first to break the news. Hoytema was also the cinematographer for Let the Right One In. Inspiring choice.

Great choice, his work with Alfredson is excellent (he definitely should have been nominated for TTSS)

Mm. Tinker's a good looking film. Going through his filmography, underexposure seems to be a pretty common thing for him. He favors a dimmer light, which is worrisome to me. But, I'm excited to see what he comes up with nonetheless.

not overly familiar with this guy, so I'll have to research him a bit more before I state my opinion on this choice.

Nolan is unpredictable as always :-D I knew he didn't choose anyone famous, TTSS looks pretty decent, but does he have imax experience?

Looks like his major films were Let the Right One In, The Fighter and Tinker Tailor...doesn't look like he has much IMAX experience.

Well Wally didn't have IMAX experience before he first touched an IMAX camera (obviously), so it's never too late to catch up :-D

What an interesting choice!
The Fighter, TTSS, and Låt den rätte komma are nicely shot! This is truly a great oppotunity for Hoyte.
I'm sure he'll do good.
