Vin Diesel certainly has his eye on the prize this time, with a grand proclamation to Variety that Furious 7 would win best picture at the Oscars.
“Universal is going to have the biggest movie in history with this movie,” Diesel said. “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.”
The film, which was produced with local partners Abu Dhabi Film Commission and twofour54, opens in the UAE on April 2.
