Rhys Ifans says the CGI in The Amazing Spider-Man is quite breathtaking
June 26 2012
The Amazing Spider-Man finally swings into cinemas next Tuesday, and Rhys Ifans who plays the villainous Lizard in the eagerly awaited reboot has joked that shooting the superhero reboot was like going clubbing.
The Harry Potter alumni called the CGI techniques used in the film "quite breathtaking" telling film magazinee Total Film "We were using CGI which I believe has never been used before," he told Total Film. "I was the participant in a technology I have absolutely no understanding of, but a willing participant.
This was crazy. Why am I sitting in a room with these blue lights, with a million dots on my face?' It was like going clubbing or something.
And then you see the finished product, and whether the audience notices or not, I don't know. I'd like to think they will. But there are some moments when the Lizard looks at you or looks at Peter Parker, and I can see my own expressions, and that's just mind-blowing."
Ifans recently said that he was "really proud" of the picture and that working with director Marc Webb was a "a dream come true".
The Amazing Spider-Man swings into cinemas on July 3 in the UK and US and features the likes of Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Martin Sheen, C. Thomas Howell, Sally Field, Denis Leary, Embeth Davidtz and Campbell Scott.
