James Bond movies are known for three things: cool gadgets, hot cars and, above all, insane stunts.

When it came to making the stunts as wild and extreme as possible for the latest installment in the celebrated franchise, the filmmakers didn't mess around. And, for the most part, they didn't fake it either.

Spectreopens with a wild scene set during the Day of the Dead in Mexico City, and production used over 1,500 extras in full costume. In another scene on an Australian mountaintop, Spectre ditched the CGI and used three real cars and a plane to pull of some mind-blowing stunts that set the bar higher than ever.

The film even shut down the streets of Rome at night to shoot a jaw-dropping chase between Bond's iconic Aston Martin and the villain's Jaguar.
