When a blockbuster movie chock-full of special effects and CGI is still in the shooting process, it looks really different from the final cut version. Of course we all know that; but how big a difference are we talking about?

I can't really come up with the significance of this act in the movie, so I'll leave it to you savvier fans to figure out.
