The film stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, and Helen Mirren, among many others (is the poster pictured here not the most bad-ass shot of Dame Helen?), not to mention the visual effects contributions of a whole bunch of 3D Animation & Visual Effects grads! So let's take a moment to appreciate the fine work (via CIS Vancouver and Zoic Studios) of Compositors Farhad Mohasseb and Jessica Wan, Visual Effects Artists Casey Rolseth and Biren Venkatraman, and Matte Painter Geeta Basantani!
Incidentally, Biren and Casey are both name-checked in this CGSociety feature on the visual effects of the Angelina Jolie vehicle Salt. Check it.
