With Transformers 4, Fast & Furious 7 and Need for Speed bringing hundreds of millions of dollars of carnage to the Summer of 2014 - and Getaway coming next month - we should probably start learning our car-stunt grammar. We can start with this behind-the-scenes video of a car rollover stunt that provides more that ten minutes of detailed info on each part of the process.

The star - after stunt driver Tom Harper and that Crown Vic - is the air ram that takes just 1.1 seconds to propel and retract a giant 'foot' onto the ground to get the car flipping. It is apparently Harper's own design and supplants the cannon system that launches a projectile in order to launch the car. You can watch Harper and crew explain it all in the video below.

      Enjoy this while it lasts. Studios are using more CGI "stuntwork" than ever, and the trend will continue because it is safer and easier.
