Hoping to secure more Academy votes toward its Best Visual Effects nomination at this year's Oscars, ILM released this revealing new special effects reel showing their hypnotic handiwork for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Final voting for Academy members closed at 5 p.m. PST yesterday, so hopefully this final PR did the trick in drawing attention to the incredible level of detail and realism achieved in the smash Star Wars prequel directed by Gareth Edwards.
