[Tig] Preserving flesh tones in cool blue looks

I was just watching the opening scene of SPY GAME where Brad Pitt  
enters the Chinese prison.  I'm impressed with how the skin tones pop  
out of what is otherwise a completely icy blue scene.  I'd be  
interested to hear any thoughts about techniques for accomplishing  
this.  Is it possible with a primary only or is a secondary being  
used on each shot to warm up the skin tones?

There are similar scenes in PIRATES 2 where skin tones just pop off  
the screen in a sea of blue.
