In the revered "paintball episode" of NBC sitcom COMMUNITY, Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) escaped a giant explosion of green paint by making a dive to safety, clutching a massive paintgun. Added kudos for wearing a Bruce Willis-style dirty vest.
In the trailer for upcoming movie I AM NUMBER FOUR, they can't resist having a shot with a sexy woman (I think it's Teresa Palmer) walking away from a gigantic house explosion. Notice how she's wearing cool shades and doesn't appear too concerned by the possibility of getting lanced by a fiery piece of wooden debris? She's that cool.
In this excellent episode of NBC's spy-comedy CHUCK, super-spy Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) and super-nerd Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) narrowly avoid being turned to toast, after Chuck's mom and villainous Timothy Dalton planted a bomb in the Bartowski family home. The obvious greenscreen adds to the chintzy charm.
Have you noticed a shot in a film, trailer, advert, or TV show that features someone jumping away from an explosion of some kind? If so, why not email me a screengrab and you can be credited in the next installment of "Jump the Blast".
