    Behind the scenes on that Fast and Furious 7 plane drop scene (VIDEO)

    Plane drop scene

    The creators of Furious 7 have launched a new video that goes behind the scenes of that epic plane drop scene, and it’s awesome. 

    If you haven’t already seen the extended trailer for Furious 7 which shows the plane drop scene go and watch it here, then come back. OK, you’re back, now you can check out how that scene was filmed at 12,000 feet above the ground in a new video launched by the creators of the seventh Fast and Furious movie. And it is awesome. There are no computer generated images (CGI) at all, they literally got the cars they needed, gave them parachutes and launched them out the back of an aircraft carrier along with a group of very brave camera men.

    So those few seconds where you see under the Dodge Challenger as it plummets towards the earth were filmed by a bloke sitting under the car. It’s extremely cool.

    The Fast and Furious 7 movie hits cinemas in under a months time on April 3, starring Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, The Rock, Jason Stratham and the late Paul Walker.

    Furious 7 extended trailer (VIDEO)

    Furious 7

    A new trailer for the latest Fast and Furious movie, Furious 7, has been launched ahead of the movie’s premiere on April 3.

    There’s not long to go until Fast and Furious 7 hits cinemas. In fact, it’s less than a month away and set for its big-screen premiere on April 3, and this latest trailer video gives us our best glimpse yet at the presumably far-fetched but brilliant Furious 7 plot, and some of the cars.

    We’re pretty sure that a significant portion of the film will be played out around the wealthy supercar-congested suburbs of Abu Dhabi, judging by the previous trailers. However, this latest one is less about the scenery and more about the squad driving a group of hotted-up cars out of a flying cargo jet thousands of feet above the ground.

    Cars include a Dodge Charger piloted by Dom (it wouldn’t be a Fast and Furious movie without the Charger, would it?), a last-gen Subaru Impreza WRX STI driven by the late Paul Walker’s character Brian plus a new Dodge Challenger coupe, a large nondescript armoured truck and an old Chevrolet Camaro driven by a petrified Roman (Tyrese Gibson’s character). And naturally, the only logical way to transport these vehicles and their driver’s from the plane to the ground is via air drop. No it doesn’t make sense, but it should make for some exceptional viewing once the movie launches.

    The main characters that aren’t pictured in this trailer are the police chief played by the enormous Rock, and the baddie in the film played by Brit Jason Stratham. It’s believed the film will start in Tokyo at the scene of the shunt shown in 2003’s Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift where Han dies. Apparently Stratham’s character is responsible for the death and was fuelled by anger over the death of his brother caused by Dom and the crew in the last Fast and Furious movie. It’s all a bit complicated but this is the movie that will finally make sense of Tokyo Drift, probably.

    Anyway, check out the awesome trailer.

    Full length Furious 7 movie trailer launched (VIDEO)

    Furious 7 trailer

    New trailer for seventh instalment in the Fast and Furious franchise, Furious 7, show’s Paul Walker’s last scenes.

    As it turns out, the Furious 7 trailer shown during the Superbowl earlier this week was just a teaser for this latest three minute long theatrical trailer which is jam packed with crazy physics-defying stunts, angry cars, many explosions and intense one-liners.

    The cast of the seventh installment in the Fast and Furious movie franchise includes all the usual suspects including Vin Diesel as ‘Dom’ and the late Paul Walker as ‘Brian’, while The Rock returns and British action hero Jason Stratham stars as the villain of the movie playing the character ‘Ian Shaw’ who is the brother of ‘Owen Shaw’ who was killed in Fast and Furious 6 by Dom and The Rock’s character.

    From what we can tell, the movie will kick off from where Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift ended, as it’s Stratham’s character who is responsible for the death of Han – incase you’ve forgotten his mint Mazda RX-7 drift car was tee-boned in Tokyo Drift while being chased by the Japanese mafia.

    Despite the connection with Tokyo Drift, the latest movie is expected to use Abu Dhabi as its main film location which will play host to a number of physics-bending action scenes, including one where Dom crashes a supercar through one sky scraper and into another… Watch the trailer and you’ll get what I mean.

    Furious 7 Superbowl trailer (VIDEO)

    Furious 7

    New Furious 7 movie trailer drops at the Superbowl ahead of the movie’s launch on April 3. 

    It’s been a while since we’ve talked about the upcoming Furious 7 movie, but the release of an awesome new trailer at this week’s Superbowl seems like a good enough reason. Set to premier on April 3, the new movie takes off where Fast 6 left off and ties in the Tokyo Drift film which, until this newest addition to the franchise was announced, has seemed like a the weird child in the family that didn’t really belong. It’s taken twelve years, but soon we will actually learn what the point of Tokyo Drift was – apart from a kickass movie with lots of tasty drift cars.

    From this latest trailer it looks like much of the explode-y action scenes will take part in Abu Dhabi, as there’s a handful of exotic Arab-plated supercars in the trailer including a McLaren 12C, Ferrari 458 and Bugatti Veyron. There’s also one other supercar in the video that you’ve probably never heard of before. It’s extremely rare, crazy expensive and built in Dubai. Called the Lykan Hypersport, it costs a whopping $3.4 million and boasts a 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat six engine from Porsche tuner RUF – who are they? They’re a reputable German company that builds the wildest, fastest and most extreme Porsches. And the car (supposedly) gets crashed through two sky scrapers – I think we can presume some CGI was used.

    Check out the new trailer.
