New Photos from "Spiders 3D" and "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2"

Posted: August 28th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
New Photos from "Spiders 3D" and "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2"Submit Comment
Today we have our first look at the massive creatures from the upcoming "Spiders 3D" and new photos from "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2." Check out both below.

Spider 3D: Following the crash of a derelict Soviet space station into a Manhattan subway tunnel, a new species of spider is discovered in the wreckage. When the spiders mutate to gigantic proportions, an MTA subway employee has to save his family and all of New York City from destruction.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2: After the birth of Renesmee, the Cullens gather other vampire clans in order to protect the child from a false allegation that puts the family in front of the Volturi. The film is set to hit theaters on November 16th.

Uh oh, looks like someone is ignoring the square/cube law again.

Square/Cube Law

With 1/27 the volume but only 1/9 the surface area, the smaller cube will be three times as agile as the larger cube. (Assuming they are capable of movement.)


The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
—Joe Walcott

A scientific principle often ignored in media:

When an object undergoes a proportional increase in size, its new volume is proportional to the cube of the multiplier and its new surface area is proportional to the square of the multiplier.

For example, if you double the size (measured by edge length) of a cube, its surface area is quadrupled, and its volume is increased by eight times.

The point of this law is that with living beings, strength is (more or less) a function of area (the strength of a muscle or bone is proportional to the area of its cross-section, not to its total volume), but weight is a function of volume. And Newton's famous Second Law (the "force = mass x acceleration" one) means that if you double a critter's height while keeping it the same shape, you end up with four times the muscle power moving eight times the mass, so instead of having the same relative agility as the original, the double-sized creature actually has only half. The same goes for most machinery.

This applies to flyers as well: Double the size, and you get four times the wingpower attempting to keep eight times the weight airborne, so the creature's ability to fly has actually been cut by half. Helicopters are hit particularly hard by this law; the largest payload of a cargo helicopter versus the world's largest airplane is 20 to 275 tons. Sorry, Hotelicopter.

Airships, on the other hand, benefit greatly from the square/cube law, as even small increases in size can quickly increase the volume of buoyant gas they can carry. Take the Graf Zeppelin and her successor*
and the Hindenburg's sister ship
the Graf Zeppelin ll for example. The original Graf was 776 feet in length. The Graf ll was a mere 30 feet larger in any direction, but carried double the volume. Because these gains came at almost no increased structural weight, the returns went entirely into making the Graf ll an even more palatial flying cruise liner than her predecessor.

Buoyancy in general, whether it be in the air or in the water, is an easy way to minimize the limitations of the square-cube law, because buoyancy is dependent on density, not mass. Good news for the whales, then.

A full explanation for the biological aspect is a lot more complicated due to subtler factors (muscle/bone stress, required oxygen uptake, dissipating body heat, etc.), the gist of it is the same in every case: You can't just scale something up (or down) to a different size and expect it to still work the same way as it used to.

Again, the law is not limited to living creatures, but applies to anything with mass (and, well, everything has mass): A skyscraper twice as wide and tall as another will have eight times the weight, and require a far stronger support structure — wood and brick just can't hold the weight. Likewise, the humanoid Humongous Mecha needs incredibly strong legs to hold its massive frame upright (probably some sort of Unobtainium), and that's not even considering how the ground beneath it also needs to be able to support that same amount of weight without caving in, or the fact that it needs some incredibly powerful motors just to get those powerful legs and arms moving (which is why we call them Impossibly Graceful Giants).

Knowing that audiences are becoming more savvy about this as compared to the days when Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever and the Incredible Shrinking Man were safe, standard plots, many creators who knowingly break the law will try to invent some Art Major Physics to justify or Hand Wave how their creation can get away with breaking it — say, the Applied Phlebotinum didn't just change their size, but also does something else to sustain their new size and counter the Law's negative effects upon them.

See Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever and Humongous Mecha for examples of media ignoring the Square/Cube Law. Sometimes justified by the use of Required Secondary Powers. Compare Muscles Are Meaningless and Pintsized Powerhouse.

I've banged a few natives in my life. One was a stinky. One was really sweet. She'd bring over chocolate cake from this place a block from my house that baked homemade food. She took it in the crapper (me... not the chocolate cake).
