For Fast and Furious 9, which makes the titles stick

At F9, filmmakers consulted with scientists to conceive their latest stunts, even though they did not fully obey the laws of physics.

They unloaded cars in the sky from behind the planes. They jumped cars on buildings in Abu Dhabi, chased cars on ice sheets, and hit submarines.

What’s next for the filmmakers of the Fast and Furious series, the franchise, for 20 years, that has become a magnet for audiences?

What, then, well, pulling?

On F9 (at the theater on June 25), the latest sequel, filmmakers consulted with scientists to conceive their latest horrible lumps, even though they didn’t really obey the laws of physics.

Movie star, Dominic “Dom” Toretto (Vin Diesel), has settled into a quiet life with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and her son.

But he was put back to work when the planet was threatened by a man with a certain history with him: his estranged brother, Jakob (John Cena), who happened to have an electromagnet.

It contains magnetic discs that can be assembled or used separately. The control disc (with a usable style, this one-to-11-style) can increase or decrease market size. The same disk can form a low magnetic field that can pull a fork.

But if it is connected at very high altitudes, the electromagnet may, at the bottom of the plane, catch the car as it emerges from the cliff. So the fun begins.

“We ended up in Hamburg, and at the time, I was interested in particle accelerators,” he said in a video interview. “It was something I was thinking about, but I didn’t know where it would lead.”

There they visited the DESY research center, the home of the particle accelerator used to study story structure. That idea formed the basis for the weapon Lin was conceived by another screenwriter, Daniel Casey.

But it is not that they adhere closely to science. This is the kind of movie that attaches a rocket engine to Pontiac Fiero, after all. Instead, workers take the view of magnets that can be opened and closed to create wow-factor stunts.

In a series playing on the streets of Edinburgh, an electromagnet pulls every car in its direction, and then it enters the store and into the bed of a delivery truck. No, none of that is made of real magnetism.

Some of the most exciting stunt activities come chasing the last car in Tblisi, Georgia. The Dom team turns on and off the power to send cars in the middle of the road and act as roadblocks, or a 14-foot-tall, 26-armed vehicle (built for the movie).

As part of the series, Dom, who drives an electric-powered Dodge Charger, is caught between trucks. He raises the dial, forcing trucks to “stick” next to his car. After that, he lowered the dial and sent trucks jumping along the lines of parked cars.

Eventually, the scene was filmed in Tbilisi with stunt drivers who drove trucks to Dom’s car to make them look stronger, and off they went.

“Even though I have the option to make it perfect, I really don’t like that,” he said. “I want the struggle to be part of the program so that the audience can participate with us.”
