Top Ten Most Realistic CGI Humans in Movies

BKAllmighty
It's pretty incredible to think that anything can be created with CGI these days (not that it always should be, George Lucas). Up until quite recently that statement would've had an "almost" in there. It would seem, however, that we can finally say, confidently, that creating realistic, lifelike human characters with CGI is completely achievable. This list compiles the most realistic-looking human characters created using computer animation.

6 Benjamin Button (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) Benjamin Button (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button)

8 Young Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) Young Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales)
