Vin Diesel says Furious 7 should win the Best Picture at the Academy Awards. The actor sounds off his optimism when talking about his movie, reported Ace Showbiz.
"Universal is going to have the biggest movie in history with this movie. It will probably win best picture at the Oscars, unless the Oscars don't want to be relevant ever. This will win best picture. There is nothing that will ever come close to the power of this thing," he said.
Meanwhile, actor Jason Statham says the film is “full of testosterone" and will go “down and dirty” -- just the way fans want to see it.
“'Fast & Furious 7 is full of testosterone. We get down and dirty with bare knuckles. That’s the way the audience wants to see it go down. That’s the way that Shaw and Toretto want to do it,” Statham said in a statement.
Talking about his character, he added: “My character is very black-and-white. Blood is blood and nothing gets in the way of that, so he’s left with no choice but to avenge his brother.”
Furious 7, the latest instalment of the Fast & Furious film series, will open wide in theatres across the nation on April 3.
Diesel, Statham, Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster and Tyrese Gibson return for the action flick, which marks Paul Walker's final film appearance before his sudden passing in a car accident in 2013.
