Sure we know that the tiger in Life of Pi wasn't real (we all know that, right?). Nor was most of what we saw in The Avengers. Oh, and Alice in Wonderland. That wasn't real either. Sorry.

Take a look at the revealing before-and-after pictures we've compiled for you below to see what we mean. You'll never look at movies in the same way again.

And the only thing that stands out to me is the extra hair they added over Bilbo's ear.
