The unstoppable Fast and Furious franchise isn’t exactly known for subtlety. Indeed, you can always a on Fast and Furious trailer to provide preposterous OTT car stunts, and this second spectacular  trailer for Fast and Furious 7, or Furious 7 as it’s simply known in the US, due out in April, is no exception. The seventh instalment may have changed director with at the helm, but this latest look reassures us it hasn’t in any way lost its momentum.

Much of the second theatrical trailer recycles footage we’ve already seen before, but we do get to see a previously unseen standout stunt that makes the tank stunt in Fast and Furious 6, where Vin Diesel morphed into superman, catching his damsel in distress in mid-air after being catapulted by a flipping tank, look positively pedestrian.

Watch with your palm firmly in your face as a W Motors...

The Driver getting UK Blu-Ray release

Last year, Walter Hill’s car chase classic The Driver made its long-awaited Blu-Ray debut, with a spruced-up transfer that put the dated DVD release to shame. Unfortunately, very few were able to appreciate it: not only was it a US-only release, but it was limited to just 3000 copies and sold exclusively by Twilight Time. The fact there are still copies available to order suggests it completely slipped under the radar, sadly. One year later, The Driver is...

130 cars were wrecked for Getaway

Getaway screeches into cinemas at the end of this month, starring Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez (really?) and a salivating Shelby Mustang GT500. A new video featurette gives some insight into the numerous car chase action sequences.

Getaway trailer stars Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez and a Shelby Mustang

Little was previously known about Getaway when we first featured it in our 2013 car chase film preview a few months ago, and the pervading silence ever since has done little to quench our thirst for information on the intriguing car-centric thriller. Today finally sees the first trailer, however, and it’s safe to say that Getaway could well be worth the wait for car chase connoisseurs.   But before you get excited, no it’s not a remake...

Dirty Mary Crazy Larry & Race with the Devil out now on Blu-Ray

Two more cult car chase classics have been given the high-def treatment in a Peter Fonda double feature Blu-Ray featuring Dirty Mary Crazy Larry and Race with the Devil.  Both films have received a spruced up transfer, but disappointingly still sport a 2.0 stereo soundtrack. The belated Blu-Ray release of Dirty Mary Crazy Larry is particularly welcome, adding itself alongside the likes of Vanishing Point and Gone in 60 Seconds in recently restored car chase films. Dirty Mary...
