BH CORRESPONDENT, Whitley, UK: A Land Rover television commercial for the new Defender due to be released air in the UK from the March 20, can be previewed on YouTube. Interestingly, it features an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at what to expect from the new Defender in Jame Bond’s upcoming flick No Time To Die.
The footage shows the new SUV launching into the air and being put to extreme driving conditions as the vehicle is driven at high speed through swamps and rivers. Even one manages to roll over and still be driveable.
For the film’s action chase sequence, stunt coordinator, Lee Morrison worked alongside Oscar winner and special effects, action vehicles supervisor Chris Corbould.
Nick Collins, Land Rover Defender vehicle line director said: “We developed a new test standard for Defender, the most challenging we’ve ever had and unique to this vehicle. Physical strength and durability is measured by a number of different tests including a bridge jump test which gave us confidence to deliver what the stunt team needed to create for No Time To Die, with no modifications to the body structure except the installation of a roll cage.”
Lee Morrison said: “We pushed the Defender further than we believed possible to generate the maximum excitement, and to give fans an insight into the uncompromising challenge of producing an incredible chase sequence which you can look forward to seeing in No Time To Die.”
