What 16 Movies Looked Like Behind The Scenes in 2021

2021 began with a lot of uncertainty about delayed releases and how we would be able to consume blockbuster movies. Regardless of whether you watched at the theaters or from the comfort of your home, there were many captivating movies that took filmmaking to another level. High-adrenaline flicks like “Shangi-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” “F9” and “No Time to Die” created in-camera stunts that you may have thought were CG. Young audiences got to see 2-D characters come to life like never before in “Clifford the Big Red Dog,” and “Space Jam: A New Legacy.” And real-life landscapes were constructed in both “Old” and “The French Dispatch” to transport viewers to another world. Here’s what 16 movies of 2021 looked like behind the scenes.

Black Widow – ILM

Check out this thrilling behind-the-scenes look at Industrial Light & Magic’s work on Marvel Studios’ “Black Widow”. One of only ten films featured on the shortlist for the category of “Visual Effects” at the 94th Academy Awards®.

“We are thrilled to have contributed to the work on ‘Black Widow’, and to have it listed among the ten films that were selected at the VFX bakeoff for the Academy Awards this year,” said Craig Hammack, Visual Effects Supervisor at ILM. “Congratulations to our amazing and talented team of artists, and all the support that surrounds them!”

Black Widow – Cinesite

Cinesite’s seventh film in the Marvel franchise, Black Widow is a prequel which follows the events of Captain America: Civil War. Having aided and abetted the Avengers who were against the Sokovia Accords, Natasha Romanoff finds herself alone on the run from the government and forced to confront her past.

In contrast with the other-worldly effects created for previous Avengers films, Cinesite’s VFX for Black Widow was terrestrial, ranging from helicopters to cars, a laboratory and a prison.
