Blade Runner 2049 may not have lived up to the hype at the box office, but it definitely delivered the goods in the visual department thanks in part to the amazing models made by the artists at the Weta Workshop.
These incredible buildings could have been created using 3D software or matte paintings, but director Denis Villenueve insisted on using practical effects as much as possible to pay homage to the original film, in which many amazing models were used.
