    Very special effects: How'd they do that?

    Updated 2/6/2007 1:01 AM ETE

    Before: Actors wear motion-capture suits on the set of
    Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest .


    After: Davy Jones and his crew come to life on-screen.

    The three movies nominated for this year's visual effects Academy Award pushed the technological envelope, says Bill Desowitz, editor of VFXWorld.com.

    "Obviously, in the visual effects world there's a lot of buzz about Pirates and the character (Davy Jones)" that (Industrial Light & Magic) made," says Rich Hoover, the visual effects supervisor on Superman Returns. "But we all have our fingers crossed."

    Winners are announced on Feb. 25's Oscar telecast. USA TODAY's Mike Snider breaks down what made the nominated films so special:

    Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
    On DVD: $30-$35

    Who did the effects:Dead Man's Chest is "the odds-on favorite" to win, says VFXWorld.com's Desowitz, "based on the immense popularity of (the film, 2006's top grosser at $423 million) and all the attention to Nighy's perfomance."
