Our team at WorldWide FX London played a pivotal role in several scenes that feature the iconic Blackhawk helicopter. Most noticeably the thrilling sequence with a rocket assault on the helicopter, launched by Statham himself.
These particular shots posed a multitude of challenges, spanning from achieving realistic destruction effects to seamlessly blending animation and from adding soaring debris to creating imposing explosions. Upon impact the blazing Blackhawk flies across the ship's deck and into the dark and rapid water. Our team faced the unique task of recreating this vast expanse of the ocean surrounding, yet another key player in the movie, the Jintara ship.
