Judging by the $1.4 billion Furious 7 has racked up in worldwide box-office grosses since hitting theaters in early April, audiences remain as highly revved as ever for the “ride or die” adventures of the film’s outlaw band of multi-cultural wheelmen led by Vin Diesel’s Dom Torretto.
Starting next month, fans can strap themselves into the driver’s seat for their own Furious experience with the launch of “Fast & Furious—Supercharged,” a theme park attraction set to open at Universal Studios Hollywood on June 25.
“Once you go on the ride, it’s an opportunity to physically feel some of the adrenaline that we feel everyday while we’re filming,” Diesel said in a statement.
Set in the high-stakes underground world of street racing, the thrill ride simulates speeds of 120 miles per hour and features stars from the Fast films including Tyrese, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez. While the action will certainly feel familiar enough to anyone who has buckled in for any of the franchise’s seven blockbuster installments, its footage of the actors doing crazy, “living life one quarter mile at a time” stunts is all-new—the grand finale to Universal Studios Hollywood’s behind-the-scenes Studio Tour.
“What we wanted to do was give those tram guests the experience as if they had driven into a Fast and Furious film,” says Chick Russell, show producer for Universal Creative, in a YouTube clip touting the attraction.
Adds Rodriguez: “It’s really a sensory-driven experience.”
You can watch a first-look clip at “Fast & Furious—Supercharged” below:
When Vin Diesel stands before you, it feels as though the shadow of Mount Olympus has just clobbered you into darkness. The 47-year-old actor and self-described “anti-hero” cuts an imposing figure, to be sure. He looks as though he could tear you from limb to limb without breaking a sweat, and he talks even tougher, full as he is of stories of train jumping and skyscraper-tumbling as a young punk growing up in The Big Apple.
On the silver screen, the gifted behemoth has deployed that brawn in the dispatch of aliens, Russian terrorists, black ops assassins, and adrenalized, misbehaved children. (That latter film is 2005’s The Pacifier, if you’d forgotten). But it’s the unexpected tenderness that very occasionally eclipses the brawler in Diesel, especially as ex-con and elite street racer Dominic Toretto in the global box office sensation that is The Fast and The Furious franchise. Furious 7, the seventh installment in the 14-year old pop culture phenomenon, has already grossed $1.5-billion around the world, which has Diesel in particularly good spirits these days.
Q: You’ve described playing the anti-hero as being your bread and butter. Even when the men you’re playing commit nefarious acts, there’s a real heart to your performances.
Vin: Yeah, they’re multi-dimensional characters, multi-layered. I find myself being drawn to anti-heroes, and now what I’m finding is that I’m being drawn to different variations of anti-heroes. The antihero in the Fast and the Furious movies, unlike others I’ve played, originally had no character arc, per se. The understanding that my character has at the end of that first film is present in the beginning of that film. What’s interesting about the character is that it’s for the audience to catch up to speed. My character has all of the character insight and conflict from the beginning. He doesn’t change, and that’s fascinating to me. Well, maybe he’s changed a little since the first one.

It may yet fall short of triumph at the 2016 Oscars, despite star Vin Diesel’s confident position on the matter, but blockbuster street-racing sequel Fast and Furious 7 nevertheless found itself in pole position at the annual Golden Trailer Awards last night, taking the top Best in Show prize.
James Wan’s film, which also took the award for best action movie, was rewarded for a trailer titled Family that was released in February. The near three-minute promo highlights new villain Jason Statham and flags up the fact that Fast & Furious 7 is the late Paul Walker’s “final ride” as Brian O’Conner. It also showcases some of the film’s more radical stunts, such as a scene in which Diesel “pilots” a sports car through a skyscraper.
Fast and Furious 7 recently overtook Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 to become the fourth highest-grossing movie of all time at the global box office, with $1.43bn on total receipts. The film has also benefited from positive reviews, and currently boasts an 82% “fresh” rating on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Starring series regulars Diesel, Walker and Dwayne Johnson with returning favourites Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black, the new film sees the crew facing off against Statham’s British ex-special forces bad guy Deckard Shaw.

After a minor backlash as Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman, it looks as though ‘Fast and Furious’ co-star Vin Diesel has decided to show his support.
Everyone remembers the enormous outcry of DC fans when Ben Affleck was cast as the all-new Batman. And while the recent news of Gal Gadot nabbing the role of Wonder Woman wasn’t quite so controversial, it was still met with scepticism. Rushing to her defence, it looks as though Vin Diesel supports his pal Gal… and thinks she’ll make an excellent Wonder Woman.
Taking to Facebook in support of his pal, Vin Diesel left this message of congratulations… and gave us a little background on her recruitment to the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise.
“In 2008, she sent in a self made video audition for FF4. Two weeks later, she became Gisele in Our saga…”
“Now, she is Wonder Woman… so proud of you angel.”
Posting an image of Gadot alongside her mother, Diesel added: “Yeah, to the left… that’s Wonder Mom.”
“P.S. Acuérdate… believe in yourself, for it’s costs you nothing and often leads to great things.”
A touching message from her fellow co-star and despite the fact that he’s set to appear as Groot in Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ it’s nice to see that he’s pleased for his fellow superhero. And obviously rather proud of Gadot’s accomplishment.
Of course, whether or not she’s any good in the role remains to be seen. But I have to admit, I’m becoming more accustomed to the idea by the day. And I get the feeling she’ll put in a solid performance as everyone’s favourite Amazonian. Now we just have to see what she looks like in the new costume.
Just for the record, I totally support Gal as Wonder Woman. I think she will make a great hero!
Vin Diesel has been confirmed to play Groot in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’.
The ‘Fast & Furious’ actor will be taking on the part of the tree-like alien superhero in the upcoming Marvel space saga, director James Gunn has officially announced on his Facebook page.
He posted a picture of Diesel posing alongside a mask of his leafy character, adding: ”Yep, it is completely official. AND he’s amazing. I never knew someone could say ‘I AM GROOT’ so many different ways and with such feeling (and that sounds like I’m kidding but I’m not!).”
This summer Diesel had hinted at the casting by posting a picture of Groot on his own Facebook page, before swiftly taking it down.
The sentient character gains super strength from absorbing wood and has the ability to control
trees. However, the role will require little dialogue as Groot’s sole line is, ”I am Groot.”
‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ features Chris Pratt as the Star Lord, Peter Quil, a human pilot who gets involved with a group of mismatched mercenaries who decide to form an intergalactic crime-fighting team. Other cast members include Zoe Saldana, Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan and Bradley Cooper.
The film is set for release in August 2014.
