Although it’s only been in theaters for four weeks, Furious 7 is now the fifth highest grossing movie of all time with a worldwide total of $1.32 billion and counting. Given the success of Fast & Furious 6 and Fast Five, Universal saw the writing on the wall and put the wheels in motion to bring the experience of these massively popular films to the people in the form of a ride at Universal Studios Hollywood. The result, Fast & Furious—Supercharged, is a 3D high-speed chase adventure in which Vin Diesel manhandles an airplane like it’s nothing while Michelle Rodriguez uses her mind powers to hold him steady. Or something like that.
Universal Studios today released a new behind-the-scenes video for Fast & Furious—Supercharged that details the making of the ride, but more importantly, they unveiled a glorious piece of key art that brings to life the scenario detailed above. I’m not sure what exactly is going on in this poster, but I love everything about it.
As for the video, it’s actually pretty interesting. If you’ve ever wondered how those interactive theme park rides are made, this offers a fairly revealing look behind the scenes. Diesel, Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Dwayne Johnson, and Luke Evans all filmed material for the ride, so they’ll be your family should you wish to experience Fast & Furious—Supercharged for yourself.
Check out the behind-the-scenes video below, via Universal Studios, followed by that wonderful poster. Fast & Furious—Supercharged will open at Universal Studios Hollywood on June 25th.
