FX company Atomic Fiction has released a cool VFX breakdown video showcasing that exhilarating car-chase scene we saw in director Tim Miller’s Deadpool. You can see the work they did on the movie by creating some computer-generated urban environments (complete with a highway overpass and new buildings), vehicles and characters.
For a comic-book film that boasted a small estimated budget of $58 million, I think Atomic Fiction has done a bang-up job on those special effects! And if the name rings a bell, it’s because the guys worked on movies such as Star Trek Into Darkness (and the upcoming Star Trek Beyond), Transformers: Age of Extinction, San Andreas and HBO’s Game of Thrones.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been fascinated about the work that goes into creating all those awesome special effects for a movie, and that video hits the sweet spot for me. It's crazy to think most of the stuff we got to see in Fox's hit movie didn't even exist in the first place! Have a look:
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
