Breathtaking stunt footage from the upcoming Need For Speed movie

By Deeq on 22 Dec 2013

Synthetic lubricant manufacturer, Royal Purple, is highlighting award-winning Hollywood stuntman Lance Gilbert’s achievements in its 2013 Outperformer mini-documentary series. Gilbert is a third-generation stunt man with a family lineage going all the way back to Mickey Gilbert in Ben Hur. The antic chariot racing scenes in that 1959 film can be considered one of the precursors to the work Lance is doing on NfS, like the getting a Koenigsegg (replica) to flip out and explode on a bridge during a chase.
It was a stunt that the director had planned to do with CGI until Lance convinced him that it could be done with real cars. You can see how it was done in the video – we think it's pretty cool.

“Lance epitomizes the idea of what an Outperformer is,” said Royal Purple Marketing Director Randy Fisher. “He constantly pushes the limits to create some of the most amazing action scenes ever recorded. His meticulous planning and attention to detail ensure the safety of performers, while making ‘the impossible’ possible on-screen.”

This seems interesting, a look alike F&F. Same same but different. The behind the scenes of these stunts looks good.

Hope this will turn out to be another good action packed movie.

So its basically a car being launched from the sides?? Expected really something cool, but meh..


This film is from the same director as Act Of Valor!!


Finally another reason to watch this when its out - with F&F delayed looks like there isnt much competition after all!!
