The challenge of finishing a film of this size without its star was incredibly daunting, but the ingenuity of Wan and his team made it possible. First, they poured over every bit of footage (including outtakes) that they had of Walker from all of the films. They then used the footage to create a bible of Walker's facial expressions in different situations that the visual effects artists could reference when creating CGI of Walker.
Still, in terms of capturing a mood, this video does a pretty great job of making Sorrentino's movie look intriguing and cool. If these are indeed outtakes from "This Must Be the Place," then the actual movie must look good because just about everything here is arresting. (Although we're not quite sure about Frances McDormand's wide-eyed enthusiasm, which feels totally unnatural.)
As Slicing Up Eyeballs reports, Adamson posted an image to Facebook on Monday of what she claims are boxes of lost tapes of Hannett's, "rescued" from a trash bin. They contain original masters and outtakes from his work in the late 70s and 80s, Adamson says, including one box marked "Joy Division Outtakes" and five more marked "Joy Division" or "New Order". According to Adamson, the collection includes a copy of the original master tapes for Unknown Pleasures. 2b1af7f3a8
