Actress Carrie Fisher, died in December 2016 of cardiac arrest. Fans of the saga expected to see your favorite actress in the ninth episode of "Star Wars" and after her death, but she was in the film and has not appeared. It would seem, it is nothing unusual in this, but it was a surprise for the fans, as previously brother Todd Carrie Fisher said that he had agreed to use the image of the deceased's sister in the film. Then this statement no one was particularly surprised: there were a few cases in the history of cinema as an actor due to computer technology or other tweaks revived on the screen. About them we decided to tell you.
Perhaps you watched the Oscar-winning biopic of Tim Burton's "Ed Wood," with Johnny Depp in the title role. Johnny plays, in fact, Edward Wood - Hollywood filmmakers middle of the last century, has earned the reputation of the worst director of all time. This gentleman took off really lousy movie, but will remain forever in the annals of history. And that's why.
In 1959, Wood was busy on the set of his most famous paintings "Plan 9 from Outer Space" (Imdb rating on site - 4, 0 out of 10). The main role played Hollywood star Bela Lugosi, who played in the movie "Dracula" in 1931. We filmed just ten minutes when suddenly Lugosi died. Before the director faced a dilemma: start all over again and lose the popular name on the poster, or dodge.
Wood, of course, chose the second option. In the role of understudy, he invited to the site massage therapist of his wife. For large plans that covered his face cloak. In the course went and archival materials taken from "Dracula", - Wood simply glue them to his belt. So Hollywood learned that the dead can also make cash.
The legendary Bruce Lee died while working on the film "Game of Death", which appeared at the same time as the main character and the director. According to the standard version, he took a pill for a headache, which led to brain edema and sudden death.
After the tragedy of the film being finished in makeshift conditions for several years. In the script added the wounded hero in person, and it is to some extent justified, why Billy Bo in the beginning of the tape does not look like himself at the end. Sometimes funding is not enough even for doubles - then used the cardboard figure of Bruce Lee.
In the XXI century at the disposal of the studios appeared plausible effects. And then it began: in the cinema began to appear people who did not long before they began work on the film. For example, Laurence Olivier "played" the main villain in the action film "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" in 2004, despite the fact that he died 15 years before.
A Marlon Brando (or rather, his computer reconstruction) two years after the death appeared in "Superman Returns."
The franchise "Fast and Furious" was at risk when Paul Walker died in a car accident during the filming of the seventh. Indeed, as much as possible to make a film about racing on steep wheelbarrows, after the leading actor burnt alive after the accident at a speed of under two hundred kilometers per hour? But Universal Studios this ethical aspect is not confused.
Paul Brothers Cody and Caleb brought to film-making process, but they were not doubles. Walker performed more psychological function. "Their presence on set makes us all feel as if Paul is still alive," - noted in the Universal. Director James Wan dug into the archive kinoserii and borrowed scenes with Paul Walker, are not included in the final version of the other parts: the draft content for the six feature films have accumulated enough. Digital effects studio WETA provided, which created Gollum in the "Lord of the Rings" and the uninitiated viewers do not notice anything.
When Olivier and Brando in his posthumous film in any of the frames are not visible in full growth, the creators of last year's blockbuster "Cast Away-one. Star Wars: The Stories "climbed to a level beyond which probably has nothing. This film was nominated for "Oscar" for best visual effects including due to the fact that one of the major actors became Grand Moff (that is the governor) Tarkin in the "execution" of the same Peter Cushing, who was shot in the original trilogy. Briton died in 1994, but in the film he walks, talks, and generally does not issue a computer graphics.
Of course, these technologies are widely used in advertising. Already released a lot of movies with people who are long gone with us. For example, Bruce Lee advertises whiskey:
And Audrey Hepburn - Chocolate:
