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

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.

Thanks for the unexpected ding!

 

While racking my brains for a question that I don't think has been asked already, I overheard an interesting fact on TV that should make a good question. So...

 

... What are the official languages of Switzerland?

 

French, German, Italian and there's another local one. I think it might be Romance or something like that?

Thanks :) my question is about something someone said about Switzerland:

 

You know what the fellow said – in Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.

 

For the ding can you tell me either what film the quote is from, or who wrote that bit?

The Third Man and reputedly that bit was written by Orson Welles, who spoke the line

Double Ding to you :-)

 

Thanks for that

 

Immediately to the east of Switzerland, and bordered also by Austria, is Liechtenstein. This country is unusual in many ways but perhaps its most uncommon feature is that it’s doubly landlocked i.e., the country itself has no access to the sea, and nor do any of its neighbours. There are only 2 countries that have this feature; Liechtenstein is one – what is the other? Only UN members count.
