New 'Furious 7' Trailer Takes Crazy to a Whole Other Level

If you thought the Super Bowl spot for Furious 7 gave away the film's most gloriously ridiculous stunt -- Vin Diesel jumping a car from one building of Etihad Towers to the next -- the new full-length trailer has arrived to assure you that you're wrong.

You see, there are also sequences in which cars -- with drivers inside -- are dropped from a military cargo plane, Paul Walker's Brian O'Connor runs up the side of a bus as it slides over a cliff, and then leaps on the back of a car. I'm guessing those still aren't the most outlandish stunts director James Wan has to offer.

With a nearly three-minute run time, the footage strikes a balance between sentimentality, with references to family and shots of the late Walker, and all-out action, with the fast cars, explosions and fights we've come to expect from the blockbuster franchise. There's also some room to fully introduce Jason Statham's revenge-seeking Ian Shaw, spotlight individual characters and, yes, expose a bit of skin.


Arriving April 3, Furious 7 also stars franchise veterans Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black, joined by newcomers Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey and Kurt Russell.
