Some directors work extra hard to make sure every detail of their movies are perfect, and there’s no director that does such good work like Steven Spielberg. In ‘Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark’, this attention to detail was everywhere, except for one unique instance.
‘The Ark of the Covenant’ is known to be quite heavy, requiring multiple people to carry it with any safety. So when Indy and his helper find it buried and need to remove it out from under Nazi noses, a few changes had to be made.
Wires: Every Superhero's Secret
It looks like the producers weren't willing to put Tom Holland's life in danger while he's wearing the Spider-Suit, which means they created a fake tower, a fake background, and even gave him a few safety wires to prevent injuries.
The actor might not be able to do everything a spider can do, which means some of that famous Marvel CGI work has to come into effect. And we can't really blame them – it's not like shooting a movie scene at the top of a building is feasible.
Does Whatever a Spider Can
There have been plenty of 'Spider-Man' movies that have graced the silver screen, and the most recent Marvel offerings have been some of the most well-received. Spider-Man has plenty of incredible powers at his disposal, like spider sense, incredible physical abilities, and unique climbing abilities. With just the tips of his fingers, he can scale buildings big and small.
Here we see him holding tight at the top of a tower, which must have been quite thrilling – in one way or another – for the actor, who of course doesn't have Spider-Man's real life powers.
All Things Practical
We see the truth of the matter in this image, which shows just how much work and dedication was put in by the "Terminator" cast and crew behind the scenes to bring the cyborg-centric story to life.
Of course, it's impossible to create a movie with such amazing scenes like 'The Terminator' without using at least some special effects, but before computer graphics took the lead, these practical effects were the easiest way to do it. We're going to see plenty more examples before we're through here.
"Ihm Going Bahck to My Trailah"
Arnold Schwarzenegger is famous for his very first movie role, that of the unstoppable Terminator in the movie of the same name, and his acting of the character is so good we can all very easily recognize him as a robotic character. But when the skin on his body sloughs away and the robotic skeleton appears to hunt down Sarah Connor, it's still quite shocking.
Nowadays plenty of CGI would have been used to make things easier and try to make them look more real, but back in the late eighties, they didn't really have those options.
