War for the Planet of the Apes advanced its motion capture technology even further with this instalment of the Apes franchise and could be a fifth win for their visual effects master. Despite that frontrunner, Blade Runner 2049‘s sumptuous, expansive effects could steal the lead and it’s our pick.
- Blade Runner 2049
- War for the Planet of the Apes
- Star Wars: The Last Jedi
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2
