ALIEN VS. PREDATOR
Actor Carsten Norgaard talked to Sci Fi Wire about breaking a rib while filming the action film. "It was a scene where I get punched seriously," Norgaard said. "I was pretty much out of air when the first big hit happened. I felt something. We had to take a recess for 15 minutes and kept on going. Sometimes I could barely stand up," he said. "[But] you're there to do a job, so you hang in there. I reached a point where just Tylenol and Advil couldn't crush the pain." To literally add insult to injury, the effects for the shot made things more miserable. "What was so incredible was that we had four of these huge continental jet engines, like the biggest ones in Europe, [blowing on us]," he said. "When you [turn] those on, I'm telling you, you cannot stand. You're virtually flying away. Then you add [artificial] snow. It's like a blizzard. I had to scrape snow out of the eyes [in between takes]. You definitely get the feeling that you're in an incredible, ruthless environment."
