A movie needs to have grand and amazing scenes, among other things, to shatter the box office record. But, it is costly… very costly! Thanks to the magic of visual effects, movie producers could save some real cash. Never mind us, the moviegoers. We could tolerate the trickery as long as the movie is awesomely done!
Business Insider compiled some images to show what popular movies would look like before the magic of visual effects is added.
