The smell of engine oil and burnt rubber had barely receded following the arrival of Furious 7‘s Super Bowl tease earlier this week, but Universal has debuted the second full-length trailer for the upcoming sequel that revs the action to eleven.
Introducing Jason Statham’s big bad alongside some truly insane set-pieces — including a shot of cars parachuting out of an airborne plane — that sizzle reel certainly doesn’t pull any punches. In fact, given that the above trailer includes a fistfight between The Stath and Dwayne Johnson’s The Rock, we’re not entirely sure that the crew of Furious 7 are familiar with such a phrase.
Directed by franchise newcomer James Wan (Saw, Insidious: Chapter 2), the seventh mainline installment in Universal’s juggernaut sees the sins of London haunt the crew. With Luke Evans’ Owen Shaw now out of the picture, Vin Diesel and the rest of the Toretto gang will be at loggerheads with his “big bad brother” Ian.
Despite the fact that Diesel’s protagonist alludes to this latest venture being the “one last ride,” the studio still has big plans for the Fast and Furious franchise. Beyond Furious 7, we understand that Universal sees enough mileage in the property for another three outings in the long-running series. Though whether the creative team can possibly go one step further than a film that sees Vin Diesel drive a supercar through a skyscraper is a question we’ll leave to you.
Furious 7 will bring together Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, Kurt Russell, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Djimon Hounsou, Lucas Black, and John Brotherton when it drifts into theaters on April 3.
