A recent extended clip from Furious 7 showcased the film’s setpiece in which the main characters drive cars out of a C-130 military transport plane, deploying parachutes to ease themselves safely to ground. Now a new featurette shows how that Furious 7 car drop was done.
No, Vin Diesel wasn’t actually skydiving in a car, but there’s still a whole crew grabbing shots of the cars in-air. You’ll see skydivers with helmet-mounted cameras falling along with the cars, as a helicopter hovers around them spotting for everyone as camera crews on the ground aim their lenses at the sky to shoot cars as they approach. See the making-of footage below. Read More »

I’d imagine you know everything you need to know about Furious 7 before hitting the theater in April. It’s the late Paul Walker’s last film, and it reunites much of the rest of the cast of the last few films and also brings in some new blood for a story about family (of course) and vengeance. Tonight a Furious 7 extended look went online, giving us a big excerpt of a scene that shows just how big and crazy this movie wants to go. Check it out below.
There’s also a new poster, and it’s a pretty great one-sheet — trouble is, we’ve only got a medium-sized version of it right now. Read More »
The summer starts early this year when James Wan‘s Furious 7 hits theaters on April 3.
The seventh film in the Fast and Furious franchise picks up where part 6 (and part 3) left off, taking the franchise into the unknown for the first time in years. Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker) and the rest of the team will once again join up with Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and others to battle a new foe, played by Jason Statham. Kurt Russell joins the action, as do Djmon Hounsou and Ronda Rousey. Lucas Black returns, too. It promises to be the biggest Fast and Furious film yet, which is saying something if you’ve seen the last two.
This week, a few new clips have made their way online. One is a new international Furious 7 trailer that has a few new shots at Race Wars – a callback to the first film – and then there’s a new TV spot. Check them out below. Read More »
When you think “movies” and “Super Bowl commercials,” in recent years that meant one thing: The Fast and the Furious. The sixth film had a huge Super Bowl spot in 2013 and in 2015, the gang is back.

Last night the news broke that New Line had pushed The Conjuring 2 out of 2015 and into an un-dated 2016 release window. We wondered if that had anything to do with the success of Annabelle, and if New Line might be thinking of making more spin-off movies based on the Warren case files, instead of doing a proper sequel. Turns out we were totally wrong — the delay is so that New Line could accommodate the Conjuring 2 director: a returning James Wan. Read More »
