Furious 7, directed by James Wan, opens in a couple weeks, and Universal has dropped a new clip. We saw the film last weekend at SXSW, and didn’t love it, but can’t argue with the fact that it gives some fans what they want, and acts as a respectful send-off to the late Paul Walker.
But this clip has nothing to do with the latter, and everything to do with the former. It shows off an encounter between Jason Statham, playing the film’s big bad, and The Rock, playing the film’s sweatiest law-enforcement machine.
No big spoilers here; this is from the very beginning of the movie — it’s basically part of the setup for the whole film.
The way that fight turns out has a big effect on the film, but this clip cuts off well before the resolution of the scene. You’ll see it in full when Furious 7 opens on April 3. Clip via Machinima.
