Simple. The cars that will be in car chases will mysteriously all be
gasoline cars. The cars the squares drive will all be hydrogen for some
strange reason. Since car chases are a redneck activity anyway, the
audience won't even notice at first. Eventually the web bulletin boards
will start predicting from the first five minutes of the movie which cars
will be smashed (and thus which characters will be the victims), and *then*
the movie industry will have to think up something to make it unpredictable.
One problem will be the police cars. It's inconceivable that they wouldn't
switch to hydrogen early to be an example. But cop cars have to blow
up spectacularly. Maybe the director will just arrange for the car to
always be carrying something volatile when it's about to be smashed.
