I need some quality junk food cinema in my life. To put it more explicitly, I need Furious 7 and Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is to say I expect both to be junk food, but quality junk food. I guess, in my case, that means they are the gummy bears and/or HÃ¤agen-Dazs of today’s cinema, and that’s alright. I need these films to remind me that films can still entertain us without lofty ideas or quiet exposition, and let’s face it, we all know there will be nothing quiet when it comes to the spectacle portion of both of these films.
Speaking of which, today I have a taste of Furious 7 for you in the form of six (or seven, depending on your interpretation) clips from the film, beginning with a fight between Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham all the way up to a behind-the-scenes featurette from the film, which includes the fight scene between Ronda Rousey and Michelle Rodriguez. Personally, I would love to see a real fight between Rousey and any of the men in this film. She has definitely solidified herself as an all-out badass and we just need Hollywood to take a chance on her and give her a high profile action role. It’s only a matter of time, may as well be now.
You also get a clip featuring Johnson and Vin Diesel; another with Diesel and Kurt Russell; an action clip with Rodriguez, Diesel, Paul Walker and Ludacris; a quieter moment with Nathalie Emmanuel and the team; and finally, a tease of the Jason Staham vs. Vin Diesel throw down you see screen captured above.
Check out the clips below and stay tuned as we are only a short time away from Furious 7 hitting theaters on April 3.
