15 Movie Storyboards: See the Early Conceptions of Your Favorite Movie Scenes

Movie Storyboards
Marvel Studios/20th Century Fox/Lucasfilm/Warner Bros./Universal Studios

We were all blown away by the early concept art for some of the most well-known movie characters, giving us a look at how they could have looked if the finger of fate pointed in a different direction, but now it’s time to delve deeper into the movie-making process by checking out some incredible storyboards from well-known flicks.

Imagining a character on the page is one thing, but depicting an entire sequence of actions meant to serve as a skeleton of the finished movie product is an entirely new endeavor. Where verbal descriptions are unable to communicate a filmmaker’s vision, in steps the storyboard. As ‘Hellboy 2′ artist Josh Sheppard pointed out on his official website, Guillermo del Toro used to work as a storyboard artist for a few years and recognized the difficult task the team had, saying, “you got a hard f—— job.” But the end results are incredible pieces of art that give sneak peeks into early depictions of movie characters and renderings of famous movie scenes.
