Hip-Hop artist and noted car enthusiast XZIBIT hosted a special event this week for the new movie GETAWAY, featuring a panel with the filmmakers and display of the cars from the film. XZIBIT moderated as the film’s director (Courtney Solomon) and stunt coordinator (Charlie Picerni) shared insight on how the action scenes and car crashes were created. XZIBIT became a fan of the film upon seeing an early screening and learning that all of the car crashes in the film were performed by stunt drivers and not created with computer graphics (CGI).
“I thought [GETAWAY] was dope. Once I found out the CGI was nonexistent, then I started counting how many cars were crashed” – XZIBIT.
GETAWAY starring Ethan Hawke & Selena Gomez in theaters now.
