  1. John Moore? Sounds like A Good Day To Die Hard.


    Edited to add: I just Googled to check and I'm way out. A Good Day To Die Hard 'only' wrecked 132 cars. The film that holds the record wrecked an astonishing 532! A Good Day To Die Hard only comes third as SP's answer (Fast and Furious) wrecked 260!


    The movie that holds the record for the most cars crashed in a single film is a favorite subject of debate -- and an honor of dubious distinction -- among car enthusiasts. Depending on which website you want to believe,


    I asked for which film reputedly holds the record for the most cars crashed in one days filming and at what estimated cost?

    The answer I was looking for was “A Good Day To Die Hard” with an estimated cost of $11 million, So over to you


    A Good Day To Die Hard


    132 cars destroyed.

    If ever there was a movie that didn't need a sequel, let alone four, it was Die Hard. Alas, 25 years after John McClane first entered the Nakatomi Plaza, we find ourselves talking about the fifth, and worst, Die Hard movie to date. Man, does he have some bad luck. 132 vehicles were destroyed in the making of this film, and a further 518 were badly damaged.


    Fast And Furious


    260 cars destroyed in Fast Five.

    All told, more than 900 cars have been destroyed since the very first Fast and Furious film, The Fast and The Furious. Over 554 minutes of film, that's one car destroyed every 37 seconds. 260 of those cars were destroyed in the latest film, Fast Five. We already know that 400 cars were used in the making of Fast and Furious 6, but just how many survived remains a mystery. Rumour has it, over 100 cars met a sticky end in just one sequence


    Transformers 3


    532 cars destroyed in Transformers 3.

    Technically, every one of the 532 cars "destroyed" in the making of Transformers 3 was already fit for the scrapheap. The cars had been donated to director Michael Bay because they were flood damaged, and therefore needed to be scrapped by law anyway.

  2. Is it the animated film CARS?

    So no actual cost.

    This is a pure bad guess as I haven't seen the film.


    #No sorry, they are real cars

    According to director John Moore


    “Someone showed me the numbers on the car chase and soup to nuts,” he said. "You put it all together, it was like an $?? million sequence.” And that doesn’t even include “several” Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUVs demolished in the filming along with a few of the German automaker’s heavy trucks like the Unimog and Zetros

  3. looks like its time for a hint


    "By giving voters the final say on legislation, this countries system of direct democracy kept women out, but at the same time the extensive autonomy of even the smallest administrative units gave them their chance to break in to political life. It was a tiny commune in Canton Valais that, in 1957, was the first to allow its women members to vote. Several cantons gradually followed suit, and in the 1960s women started occupying more and more important positions in local parliaments and governments. In 1968 the country's third largest city, had a woman mayor - but she still couldn't vote in federal elections.

    This advance did not prevent suggesting that when this country signed the human rights convention of the Council of Europe, it should opt out of those parts calling for sexual equality. The uproar this provoked forced the government to revise its position. A new referendum was put to the country.

    The result: on February 7th 1971, by a two thirds majority, finally gave their female compatriots their full federal voting rights."
