Flipping the Joker’s truck over (The Dark Knight, 2008)
In the second instalment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy, the crew literally flipped a truck over as part of a gripping chase sequence in which the Joker (Heath Ledger) pursues Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), thinking he’s Batman (Christian Bale). But the real Batman attaches the Joker’s tractor-trailer with super cables to the street of Gotham, causing it to tumble upon itself.
At the helm of the cartwheeling 18-wheeler truck was stuntman Jim Wilkey, who only had one chance to get it right. Wilkey survived the stunt without a scratch, and the no-CGI truck flip appears in one continuous take in the film.
