Sennheiser MKH50 i'd say, from the looks of the suspension and size, the mic body also seems to widen close to the capsule.
Because they sound great in interiors and at that distance
I'm going to have to go with Utopia on this one... if you zoom in on the hi-res link Ed sent, you can definitely see the familiar body shape of the MKH50... at least on the far mic. On a completely unrelated note - that boom op in the shot could be my twin! :)
