For modern studios and directors, it’s just not worth the risk of losing an actor or stunt person to a stunt gone wrong.

Don’t let the word “practical” fool you, because the stunts discussed in this article are as psychotic as they are impressive.
In the golden era of martial arts cinema, a few names stood out, casting long shadows over the silver screen. Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Jet Li are often the first to come to mind.

But Cosnter’s lead role as the patriarch of the Dutton family was preceded by a rich acting career that has spanned four full decades. During this time, Costner worked alongside some of the greatest actors to have ever lived. A short list of these names includes Sean Connery, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, and Diane Lane.
Ke Huy Quan is far from one of those child actors who retired from the industry after a few one-hit wonders. Instead, he had his career stunted in a much more literal way.
You probably know Quentin Tarantino as the critically acclaimed, rebellious filmmaker behind such iconic films as Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, and Inglourious Basterds.

When Disney acquired 20th Century Fox on March 20th, 2019, Alien and Predator fans waited with bated breath to see what would happen to the properties of the shared universe. After all, the content isn’t exactly the family-family material that you’d expect to see on Disney Plus.
Peter Jackson’s The Lord of The Rings is considered by many to be the perfect trilogy. That doesn’t mean that the films don’t have a few production mistakes here or there.
