This image requires a bit of explanation. The top part is from the US version of the Indiana Jones movie trailer. The bottom image is almost the same frame from the Norwegian version of the Indiana Jones movie trailer. Notice some differences?

No CGI is required for this.. the actors are just recorded separately, so we have the same take of the main characters there, yet different takes of the background and foreground characters, all in-front of a greenscreen on the original footage and keyed out before post production lighting fixes.. it's all compositing, no 3d except possibly elements of the background like the crates.
