Check Out This Behind-The-Scenes Footage Of Car Chases In The New Jason Bourne Movie

You’ve probably seen mobile boom camera units being used for filming before. They tend to look like an entirely blacked-out Porsche Cayenne Turbo or Mercedes-AMG G63, with an enormous crane and camera sutured onto the roof.

The real good bits start around two minutes in, with what looks to be an armored SWAT van just plowing into some cabs on the Las Vegas strip:
