Watch: How 'Furious 7' Pulled Off Insane Flying Car Chase with Paul Walker

Furious 7” director James Wan comes aboard NYT’s Anatomy of a Scene to talk one of the film’s centerpieces, an air-bound chase scene in which muscle cars free-fall into enemy territory. Watch below.

Wan also talked to the New York Times about finishing the film without Paul Walker:

“Furious 7” is now in theaters.
