During the Super Bowl, between me pulling my hair out and possibly weeping in public in the middle of the dive bar a block from my house (I’m never as stressed as when I watch a Seahawks game), we’ll be treated to a variety of TV spots for upcoming movies. This weekend has become a kind of annual kick off for the marketing campaigns for the big blockbuster films of the following summer (and summer, at least according to the studios, now starts in March or April and runs through the first week of August). One of the movies that has supposedly purchased a slot of this absurdly expensive air time is James Wan’s The Fast & The Furious 7 (or Fast 7 or Furious 7 or whatever it’s actually called). But I don’t need a full frontal look to get stoked about this movie, all I need is this 7-second clip and I’m completely sold.
To be honest, I was on board from the first trailer we saw—you remember, the one with cars parachuting out of a cargo plane. But this short blurb of a video of cars jumping over and/or through things just cements how excited I am to see a bunch of beefy dudes driving roided out cars very, very fast. I can’t say anything more about this movie that you don’t get from these few seconds, so watch them for yourself.
The Fast & The Furious 7 opens everywhere April 3, which can’t arrive quick enough for me.
And if you haven’t already taken the time, be sure to watch the full trailer.
