The Fate of the Furious (Fast and Furious 8) is sure to be jam packed with stunts such as this ‘wrecking ball’ one that features in the official trailer.
Besides all the mad action, this eighth movie in the Fast franchise stars our very own Charlize Theron as chief villain.
The video below takes us behind the scenes where, according to special effects supervisor J.D. Schwalm, a custom built wrecking ball weighing 14.5 tons was created. The ball was swung towards oncoming Volvos and both the cars as well as the ball were traveling at about 64 km/h during the collision.
As can be expected, the destruction was spectacular and car parts went flying everywhere.
The Fate of the Furious premiers at cinemas on 14 April.
