First ‘Fast and Furious 7′ Footage Included on ‘Fast and Furious 6′ Blu-ray
Can’t wait for your first look at ‘Fast and Furious 7‘ footage? Well, even though the upcoming sequel is still filming and nine months away from hitting theaters, you can actually see your first glimpse of the film in two weeks, when the ‘Fast and Furious 6‘ DVD and Blu-ray hits shelves. So, what will you be seeing? Spoilers ahead!
Movies.com got an advanced look at the new DVD and say that the ‘Fast and Furious 7′ preview isn’t hidden at all – it’s listed right in the main menu. It’s a brief scene that takes place directly after ‘Fast and Furious 6′ and was hinted at in the photo above, posted to Facebook by Vin Diesel. It takes place at Han’s funeral with Dom, Brian (Paul Walker), Tej (Ludacris) and Roman (Tyrese) in attendance.
Vin Diesel says on behalf of his crew, “You were always my brother, Han. He put you in this grave, so now I’ll do the same to him.” Ohh snap. But, that’s not all! We knew that Han was dead and Dom would want revenge, but what we didn’t know was that Hobbs (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) is in bad shape. Ludacris says later in the scene, “First Han, now Hobbs is laid up, of all people.”
It’s not entirely surprising to hear that Hobbs has been injured/hospitalized considering The Rock almost didn’t return at all for the film. He was filming ‘Hercules‘ for Brett Ratner at the same time and there were some major scheduling issues. They were able to work out a way for Johnson to return, but perhaps in a reduced role.
If you want to catch a glimpse at the ‘Fast and Furious 7′ footage for yourself, the ‘Fast and Furious 6′ DVD and Blu-ray arrives in stores on December 10. ‘Fast and Furious 7′ opens in theaters on July 11, 2014.
