Universal Studios Hollywood's “Fast & Furious—Supercharged.” (Universal Studios Hollywood)
This is totally cool.
Universal CityWalk will have advanced movie screenings of Universal Pictures’ Furious 7 that will also feature other activities en route of the film’s April 3 release. This includes a Fast & Furious movie marathon at the AMC Theatres, an exclusive first-look at Furious 7’s 1967 Camaro and an original costume display, including attire (through Friday, April 10) worn by Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson in Furious 7.
Getting up close with the 1967 Camaro, which Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) drives in the flick, is obviously a must for any movie-goer, or just about anyone – really! Available on site through Sunday, April 5, it’s perfect for pictures (even selfies) and getting a personal touch of the flick – unarguably one of the most entertaining film franchises of all time.
Universal CityWalk’s AMC Theatres is to offer advance screenings of Furious 7 starting at select times every seven minutes after the hour beginning on Thursday, April 2. The AMC Theatres will also bridge the gap to this latest film with an exciting two-day movie marathon at CityWalk that’ll feature all previous 6 Fast & Furious films on Tuesday, March 31 and Thursday, April 2.
For more information and to purchase tickets to the advance screening of Furious 7 and the Fast & Furious movie marathon at the AMC Universal CityWalk Theatres and IMAX, visit www.CityWalkHollywood.com.
Additionally, the non-stop action and charged atmosphere shift into high gear as CityWalk’s outdoor concert venue, “5 Towers,” celebrates the Furious 7 takeover with a D.J. party spinning songs from the film series’ entire music library. As of now, this includes new sounds from the latest movie soundtrack as part of the opening weekend festivities from Thursday, April 2 through Saturday, April 4.
Universal Studios Hollywood will join in on the takeover as the theme park prepares to introduce its all-original thrill ride “Fast & Furious—Supercharged” on Thursday, June 25.
The ride itself is classified as such: “a technologically advanced, epic ride that reunites stars from the Fast & Furious series in a groundbreaking mega-attraction, conceived as a new installment to the dynamic Fast & Furious films that can only be experienced at The Entertainment Capital of L.A. Featuring characters made famous by Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Luke Evans, “Fast & Furious—Supercharged” will catapult guests into the high-stakes underground world of fast cars in a harrowing escapade—at perceived speeds in excess of 120 miles per hour—to save one of their own from an international crime cartel.”
