You're not supposed to judge a book by its cover.

But these are films - visual spectacles that are judged, scrutinised and awarded for having the best darn covers in the business.

Editor and cinematographer Vic Rincon has compiled a whirlwind, 100-second tour of the five films nominated for the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects:

  • Mad Max: Fury Road 
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens 
  • The Revenant 
  • The Martian 
  • Ex Machina 

From space romps to western grit, they make for one truly pretty picture.
