Filming for “Jupiter Ascending” featured amazing helicopter stunt work in downtown Chicago during dawn on August 12th and luckily someone was there to get some behind the scenes footage. Three videos were released by Youtube user DJGOLFVR6 that show a stuntperson dangling below a helicopter high above the downtown area. I’ve embedded the last video below since it is the longest, the other two videos feature much of the same.
Reddit user Jimmyg100 claims to be a part of the Aerial team for the film and says that this is the most elaborate aerial shoot in the city’s history. I’ve reached out to him for further comment and possibly to answer some questions but have yet to hear back.
