Video: behind the special effects in Fast & Furious 6

0

Spoilers!

Part of what has made the Fast & Furious franchise thrive under Justin Lin's direction is his insistence on filming as much real action in-camera as possible. In other words, (spoilers, I suppose) for the final chase scene in Fast & Furious 6, Lin basically built a huge plane-sized thing and crashed it in order to let the stunt drivers in their cars in front of the plane be actually driving for their lives.

Check out the video above from Wired where just how the runway scene was shot. Hint; it involves actually driving cars through fireballs. For more oohing and ahhing over the craziness that is Fast & Furious 6, go listen to me and those other dudes on the Flixist Movie Club's Fast & Furious 6-cast!
