It's Crazy How Much of The Wolf of Wall Street is Actually CGI

By Eric Limer on at

Thor? CGI all over the place. Pacific Rim? Ditto. The Wolf of Wall Street? Surprisingly, also yes. You might not have thunk it, but there's CGI slathered all over that thing.

Unlike sci-fi movies where it's CGI or nothing, there's not much in The Wolf of Wall Street that can't exist in the real world. You probably could do it all traditionally. But with CGI as good as it is now, it's just easier—and cheaper—to do it the fake way. Just look at The Great Gatsby. This fantastic reel from Brainstorm Digital lays it all down for you, and bares some of the most surprising illusions.
