From childhood, most of you must have been educated that death is an end that can’t be fought, gang.
As living beings, none of us can escape death . But what if Jaka says it turns out that this is not entirely true?
What would your reaction be if Jaka told you that in recent years there have been several cases where people have been able to rise from the dead ?
Jaka didn’t talk about ghosts in horror films , but about actors who were summoned from the grave with the help of technology .
Thanks to the development of computer-generated imagery (CGI) , it is now not difficult for film studios to digitally recreate an actor/actress’s re-performance.
Curious which actors and actresses have been revived? Here, Jaka will discuss 7 actors brought back to life through CGI !
1. James Dean (Finding Jack)
In November 2019, it was announced that James Dean would appear in Finding Jack , which is set at the end of the Vietnam War .
The thing is, James Dean died in 1955 at the age of 24 and James Dean’s appearance here will be helped by a combination of CGI and the actor’s old footage.
Despite only starring in three films in his lifetime, the character of James Dean has become very iconic and director Anton Ernst was criticized for this decision.
Actor Chris Evans hates this decision and the daughter of the late Robin Williams , Zelda Williams has also expressed her displeasure at this.
2. Brandon Lee (The Crow)
In the process of shooting for the superhero film adaptation of the comic The Crow , there was an error in the gun used in the film which ultimately took the life of actor Brandon Lee .
To finish this film, finally director Alex Proyas was forced to use a combination of stunts and CGI as a replacement for Brandon.
When it was released in 1994, The Crow received a lot of praise, especially for Brandon Lee’s performance, and many critics were very sorry for the death of this young actor.
The Crow also got three sequels in the next few years but no actor could beat Brandon Lee ‘s acting in this film.
3. Marlon Brando (Superman Returns)
Not many know this fact, but the 2006 film Superman Returns is actually a true sequel to the 1980 film Superman II .
As one might guess, almost all of the cast in the previous film were replaced by new ones except for one minor role, the gang.
For the role of Jor-El who is Superman ‘s biological father , director Bryan Singer decided to stick with actor Marlon Brando who died in 2004.
Using a combination of CGI and old footage, the actor who has appeared in The Godfather ‘s best film trilogy is successfully brought to life for a few minutes.
When it was first released in 2004, the action film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow was famous for its very unique visual style, gang.
Director Kerry Conran was very inspired by comics from the 30’s and 40’s and this black and white film also manages to combine science fiction with a classic style.
In addition, this film is special because it contains the appearance of a veteran British actor , Sir Laurence Olivier who plays the mad scientist Dr. Totenkopf .
Olivier had been dead for 13 years when this film was made and Conran used a combination of CGI and footage of Olivier as a youth to project Olivier who appeared in this film.
5. Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2)
Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman is considered one of the best actors of his time and his death due to an overdose is very unfortunate by all film lovers.
This is also a disaster for director Francis Lawrence because Hoffman has not had time to finish his appearance in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 .
Lawrence was sure CGI wouldn’t be able to emulate Hoffman’s quality of performance so he had to change the script to reduce Hoffman’s appearance here.
However, Lawrence still uses CGI to keep Hoffman in the final film with changed scenes and omitted Hoffman dialogue.
