All week, we will be confirming the airing of various Super Bowl movie trailers during Sunday’s big game. Jurassic World and Insurgent already promised to show us footage. Now we also know that Universal bought time for James Wan’s Furious 7, and – appropriately – seven seconds of car-flying awesomeness hit social media this afternoon:
This clip was posted to Paul Walker’s official Facebook page, and it very quickly runs through some incredible vehicular stunts that will be part of the latest Fast & Furious adventure. The part that I love about this is that you can pause on each insane stunt, and still not get a spoilery sense of WHY these cars are ending up in places they don’t belong. Like flying out of the side of a building:
Through a peaceful forest:
And dropping out of the sky likes leaves on a windy, autumn afternoon:
Seriously, the Furious 7 stunt team is insane, and the car-based action set pieces escalate dramatically from film to film. I wasn’t sure it was going to be possible to top the "dragging a bank vault" scene from Fast Five. Then I saw Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and the guys take on a tank in Fast & Furious 6. We already have witnessed the crew skydiving IN THEIR CARS in the full trailer for Furious 7. How the hell do you top that in this new movie?!
The longer (but still brief) Furious 7 spot will run on Super Bowl Sunday. Did you enjoy this car-destroying tease?
