20 Famous Movie Scenes Before And After Special Effects

Hollywood movies have million dollar budgets, but have you ever wondered what they do with all that money? Well, a good part of it goes towards special effects and computers technology. Whenever a movie gets a great sum of money, it means there’s enough to spare for spectacular CGI (computer-generated imagery). Hundreds of movies with hyper-realistic action scenes have hit theatres in recent times, and people have been amazed at the incredible scenes. The thing is, as fun as they might look on screen, they are often unspectacular behind the scenes. Here are before and after special effects comparisons from 20 popular movies, courtesy of Meaww.
