The motion capture for Jurassic World's raptors is way better than the actual CGI

They're somehow more terrifying

What if Jurassic World hadn't bothered to put the CGI in during post-production, and instead of a by-the-numbers action-adventure film we'd got a surrealist Jodorowskian fantasy about Chris Pratt being chased by feral men in grey morph suits?

We got a glimpse of what this would have been like today, when an image was posted of a group of actors mo-capping for the dinosaurs.

It looks like a shot from a very bizarre and esoteric convention, and has tickled the internet to the tune of 2.7 million views in 17 hours.

People are now calling for sans-CGI versions of movies to be mandatory on DVD extras, something I'd 100% be behind.

The image is the exact opposite of what cartoon series Archer did with one of its episodes, replacing all the human characters with velociraptors.
