Watch: Featurette Shows Surprising 'Wolf of Wall Street' Visual Effects
We've shown off plenty of visual effects breakdowns for big blockbuster films like Marvel's Thor: The Dark World and Iron Man 3, Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim and The Great Gatsby. But some films have visual effects that you aren't even remotely aware of, because they are seamless and don't feature any full compter generated creatures or anything like that. One such case is The Wolf of Wall Street. With the exception of one crazy encounter Jordan Belfort's yacht has with a huge storm at sea, you would think few visual effects were needed in Martin Scorsese's film. But you'd be wrong. Watch the cool VFX breakdown below!
