We all love big-budget Hollywood movies but in case you’ve ever wondered how they pulled off those CGI-heavy or practical effects-filled scenes, here’s your chance to find out.
The photos we’ve compiled below will show you what some of our favorite films looked like before we saw them on the silver screen. Most of them are actually impressive but take note, some are surprisingly pretty hilarious!
Feel free to scroll down below to see what we mean:

#3. Jurassic World (2015)
#4. Forrest Gump (1994)
ILM digitally-removed actor Gary Sinise’s legs for Forrest Gump. Stephen Rosenbaum, who worked on the movie’s special effects, said:
“To take off his legs, it was all about background replacement and then tracking in 3D knee caps with bandage. It was pretty straightforward by today’s standards but it certainly shocked a lot of people, including Gary, actually.”

#7. Exterior Of The Sewer Set In IT
