So last night I finished watching The Italian Job and then watched the special features for it. And by doing that, I learned some really cool facts about the movie. Like:

They used 32 Mini Coopers

Everything is real, there is no CGI in it at all

The actors did a vast majority of the stunts themselves

There is an Easter Egg where you get to see Seth Green (Lyle) doing different versions of his impersonation of Handsome Rob

The tunnel where Stella breaks into the safe was built in the hanger where the first space shuttle was built because it was so big and they used every inch of the space

When the helicopter is chasing Charlie, the pilot really flew the helicopter under the bridge

Hollywood Boulevard and Highland were shut down for seven days so the could shot the van falling through the road

The screen writers only saw the original movie once because they wanted the new movie to be inspired by the original, not a remake

I think that's enough random stuff for now.
