2020 presented Hollywood with plenty of challenges, but it also brought its own set of breakthroughs in the world of special effects. Here’s a glimpse behind the scenes of 14 movies that featured imaginative animation, digital wizardry, lifelike practical effects, and cutting-edge stunt sequences.
2020’s 3D-animated films found innovative ways to animate and light their unique characters and worlds, the likes of which we’ve never seen before — from a character made up of a pair of pants in Pixar’s “Onward” to the otherworldly lunar kingdom seen in Netflix’s “Over the Moon.” Reboots like “Dolittle” and “The Call of the Wild,” along with the long anticipated video-game movie “Sonic the Hedgehog,” used VFX technology to combine CG animals with live-action human characters and environments.
Meanwhile, a combination of practical and digital effects made Machine Gun Kelly light on fire in “Project Power,” designed a thrilling tunnel escape in “Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey,” and created a terrifying villain out of nothing in “The Invisible Man.” Finally, from the massive battle scenes in “Mulan” to the gripping fight sequences in “Extraction,” “Birds of Prey,” and “The Old Guard,” this year’s action films pushed actors and stunt performers to undergo extensive weapons and combat training to execute some truly impressive stunt work.
