I know I’m a bit of a crank on CGI, but crap, man, look at that!! A full sized prop octopus! That’s the stuff, I’m telling you. (I’m not sure I’ve mentioned this, but I’m sort of partial to giant octopi in my movies.) Can you imagine how unwieldy that thing must have been? Bless those guys.
Oddly, there aren’t a lot of stills of this thing on the Web, at least from the movie. Here’s a mix of screen grabs and some sweeeeet publicity stills, however.
