Director John Moore's action movies are known for being hard on cars, and his fifth instalment of the Die Hard series, with Bruce Willis reprising his role as wise-cracking New York detective John McClane, certainly lives up to that reputation.

In one of the big set pieces (not the whole movie, just one scene!) he wrote off a mind-boggling 132 cars, including a Lamborghini and a number of Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUVs, which he got for nothing from the makers.

Oh, and according to Moore, "another 518 required a lot of work".

Even with the free Gelandewagens, that one scene cost $11 million (R98 million) to film. We'll have to wait until the film goes on circuit in South Africa to see whether it was worth it - but, in the meantime, check out how that scene was shot.
