This new featurette from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences goes behind the epic final battle of Edge of Tomorrow. Intellectually we know there’s a lot of special effects in these movies, but it’s actually amazing how few things were actually filmed for this.

The video goes from photos of real world Paris to the digital models, to the few seconds of real Tom Cruise seamlessly incorporated into the Louvre infiltration. And none of that is even the best part of the film. Emily Blunt’s the best part of the film.
