Watch Universal Studios Hollywood's new 'Fast & Furious - Supercharged' Super Bowl Commercial

February 1, 2015, 2:24 PM · Universal Studios Hollywood is adding a new 3D motion-base encounter, based on the Fast & Furious franchise, to its Studio Tour this summer. To promote the new attraction, Universal aired a national commercial on corporate sibling NBC during its Super Bowl pre-game show today. Take a look:

"Fast & Furious - Supercharged" will feature original 3D scenes, filmed by stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson and Luke Evans, in a new 65,000-square-foot show building on the Studio Tour. The attraction will play on a 400-foot-long, 360-degree screen with 34 4K projectors providing the imagery. Meanwhile, the Studio Tour trams will be staged on motion bases during the show, which will help complete the sensation of a 120-mph chase through downtown Los Angeles.

Universal is integrating Fast & Furious throughout the Studio Tour ride, as additional scenes featuring the actors on the tram screens during the tour will build up to the final chase encounter in the main show building.

"Fast & Furious - Supercharged" is expected to open this summer. Head down to the comments for more Super Bowl commercials for theme park fans.

February 1, 2015 at 9:54 PM · I can't help but feel like this is another case of Universal mismarketing something which then leads to confusion. Just like how everyone thought there was a separate Harry Potter park, promoting an aspect of the studio tour as its own ride is just leading uninformed guests down a curvy road.

February 2, 2015 at 10:15 AM · I was really surprised there wasn't an Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, and instead Disney bought time for Tomorrowland.

The initial Jurassic World trailer that came out in November was more interesting than the one that aired last night. The ending sequence with the dino poking through bubble with the kids inside was a straight ripoff from the first Jurassic Park. If they're just rebooting and stealing from the original, I will be very disappointed.
