Talking about his excitement on seeing his digital twin, Pratt said, “How do you make it so good looking? I just fell in love.” Pratt expressed his views about the technology used in the film in a behind-the-scene video, read a statement.
The actor said: “That’s a computer-generated image based on information you gather, but it’s really a photograph but it’s really a true 3D photograph. They take several angles of my face that way the artist is creating the bust out of marble.” Passengers is set to hit the theatres in India on January 6, 2017 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
