Watch the movie magic happen with these before and after FX shots

There's always that moment of colossal disappointment when you find out how a magician's trick is done. What do you mean it's just mirrors/magnets/string (delete as appropriate)? But the same just can't be said for movies. There's something as equally impressive as the special effect itself when you discover what went on behind the scenes of blockbusters to create the action on screen. 

Whether it's men in green suits crawling around with children on their backs to create the extinct joys of Jurassic World or seeing how Godzilla destroys a CGI world, it's incredible to see how much work goes into what looks like even the simplest of shots. Enjoy having the magic ruined. And spoilers: there's a lot of green screen.
