Although zipping between two absurd pillars of wealth isn't exactly possible without CGI, the above-mentioned skyscraper scene did involve plowing a real car through a 40-foot-high, steel and glass sound stage set. But that's not even close to this scene from the newest film. In order to create the illusion of sports cars falling out of an airplane, they, uh, threw sports cars out of an airplane.
f**k yep. After months of planning, scouting a drop site, and multiple tests, the stunt crew managed to poop cars from 12,000 feet out a C-130 for six takes ... something the stunt coordinator claimed worked 70 percent of the time.
"The 30 percent that didn't caused 100 percent pants-shitting for those below."
