This is what movies look like without special effects

When watching movies today, we often forget that a large part of what we see on the screen was generated by a computer. We’re usually so focused on the interplay of the actors the world we see around them is not in fact the real one. Herein lies the skill of special effects artists.

Here are a few examples of what movies look like both with and without their special effects ’make up’. The magic of the big screen never ceases to amaze!
