During the opening sequence of The Expendables 3, a huge action sequence will take place involving an armored train. We were the first to reveal that shortly after the movie was completed, way back in 2013. You can see the spot again in the trailer.
Unique camera tracking and angles will film that sequence and some might mistake the acrobatics of the lens as the work of CGI. But that is not the case. The Hollywood Reporter has put up an in depth article on the deployment of UAVs to film this movie, with their interview with pilot Ziv Marom.
“We flew right next to a train and helicopter,” says pilot Ziv Marom, owner of the drone camera-services company ZM Interactive. “We shot everything from chasing tanks to explosions to flying over buildings and motorcycle jumps. We can also do shots that a real helicopter can’t do. We can do lower altitudes.”
The full article can be read here. But one more thing, Kelsey Grammar has briefly spoken of The Expendables 4, suggesting that a more action-based role should be reserved for him. Check that out in this video.
