Just when we thought the stakes couldn’t get bigger, director James Wan (The Conjuring) – taking over for Justin Lin – ups the mayhem and vehicular destruction that occurred in the last two installments. They even go as far to throw cars out of a cargo plane.
Furious 7‘s one-minute Super Bowl spot has made its way online and its 100-percent insane. Those who are fans of the franchise are well aware that the law of physics do not apply to the cars seen in The Fast and the Furious.
This time we pick up after the events of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, a film that marked Justin Lin’s entry into the series, and was for the longest time the outlier of the six movies because it didn’t seem to fit the narrative. The mid-credit scene of Fast & Furious 6 changed all that with the introduction of a new villain (Jason Statham), seeking revenge for the death of his brother (Luke Evans, who died at the end of the sixth movie).
Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, UFC fighter Ronda Rousey and Lucas Black along with Paul Walker, who was killed in a fatal car accident before filming was complete (the movie was finished with his brothers as stunt doubles and a bit of CGI trickery). Martial artist Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell, Michael Jai White, and Djimon Hounsou also have supporting roles.
Universal Pictures will drop Furious 7 into theaters on April 3rd.
