8 stunt tricks used over and over in movies

Hollywood has many tricks to make impossible and dangerous stunts into a reality. Movies like "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," "Baby Driver," and "Elf" used a Texas switch to allow an actor and their stunt double to switch places on screen without having to cut. "Avengers: Endgame" and "Men in Black: International" used wire rigs known as ratchet pulls to make it seem like characters were being hit by a serious blow. Meanwhile, a tuning fork can make characters like Maleficent and Captain Marvel look like they're flying, and a tarp known as a magic carpet gave characters in "Underworld" superspeed. Thanks to Brad Martin, Daniel Hargrave, Monique Ganderton, Bobby Holland Hanton, Rowley Irlam, Tanoai Reed, and Aaron Toney for speaking with us and providing footage.
