X-MEN 3

Director Brett Ratner talked to Sci Fi Wire about wrecking the Golden Gate Bridge. The megamovie moment is in the trailer, and that's ripping the [Golden Gate] Bridge out of the ground and moving it," Ratner said. "That's a mega-mega-mega-movie moment. Even I'm blown away when I see it. The pieces that it took, that we shot, to get that to workfrom the plates to the sky shots to the making of the bridge in miniature to CG enhancements to real elements of people runningit was insane. There must be 20 different elements to make one shot of the bridge look real. So as far as technology is concerned that's a major mega-moment in cinema. I'm telling you, my mouth drops when I see the final shots." There's also a spoiler, so watch out!
