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.
