The new Fast & Furious â€” Supercharged feature, which will debut at Universal Studios Hollywood this Summer, will be the new grand finale for the California theme park’s popular backlot Studio Tour attraction and feature Fast and Furious franchise stars Vin Diesel (Dominic â€œDomâ€ Toretto), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty Ortiz), Dwayne Johnson (Luke Hobbs), Tyrese Gibson (Roman Pearce) and Luke Evans (Owen Shaw).
The dynamic hydraulic motion-based ride will tell an original Fast & Furious story that fuses sophisticated hyper-realistic special effects with a state-of-the-art 3D audio system and 3D-HD imagery, projected onto the worldâ€™s longest and most expansive 360-degree screen. Spanning nearly 400 feet in length to encircle Studio Tour guests within a newly constructed 65,000-square-foot structure on the legendary backlot, the sprawling custom-built screen will employ 34, 4K projectors and a sophisticated projection configuration system to fully envelope guests in unprecedented realism.
Coupled with an intense blend of thrilling visceral effects, â€œFast & Furiousâ€”Superchargedâ€ will take guests on a wild ride that begins the moment they board the Studio Tour. Exclusive interstitial content, filmed with the cast members, will be featured on the tram monitors highlighting interactions as they engage guests en route to the rideâ€™s climatic scenes. Along the tram route and featured at the ride, sightings of numerous prop cars from the Fast & Furious series, including Domâ€™s iconic Dodge Charger, will enhance the story.
The adventure will culminate with spectacular action sequences that send guests careening through the streets of Los Angelesâ€”at perceived speeds in excess of 120 miles per hourâ€”aided by the elite team of unforgettable heroes.
A TV spot for Furious 7, the seventh and upcoming film in the franchise, is expected to air tonight during the big game, and we’ll have it here as soon as it’s online. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Michelle Rodriguez, and Lucas Black reprise their respective roles for the James Wan-directed sequel, while newcomers Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Nathalie Emmanuel, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, and John Brotherton have joined the cast.
