Six great bridge jumps from six films. My personal favorite is the Blues Brothers jump over the Calumet River.

This was a fun little supercut started for my class a couple weeks ago and finally finished. I can’t remember how they helped me choose this topic, but it turned out to be a fun one. The 007 jump is probably the craziest, as it’s a legitimate stunt that turned a car 180 degrees over a river. Crazy.

The final ‘rocket car’ bridge jump as clownish as it appears is actually an homage to stunt drivers in the action/comedy film ‘Hooper.’ Car jumping had its moment at this time, pre-CGI, destroying car after car.

The Dukes of Hazzard was probably the zenith of car jumping documented on film, so its intro music makes for a perfect soundtrack for the many film jumps.
