'Furious 7,' the seventh installment of the 'Fast and the Furious' movie franchise, has a new teaser trailer out showing seven seconds of behind-the-scenes footage. Though unconfirmed,  the clip is thought to be a teaser for a longer spot set to air during this weekend’s Super Bowl XLIX.

Following last November’s release of the first trailer for Furious 7, the seventh installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise, the producers of the film have now released a short teaser trailer showing seven seconds of behind-the-scenes footage of some of the new movie’s stunts.

The stunts appear to be at scenes throughout the movie and include a car flying out of a building, two cars racing through a forest and what even looks like a blue Nissan GT-R, the latter likely to be the car of Brian O'Conner, played by the late Paul Walker.

Though it’s yet to be confirmed, the short clip is thought to be a teaser for a longer spot set to air during this weekend’s Super Bowl XLIXTrailers from previous Fast movies have been shown during Super Bowl so we wouldn’t be surprised if the producers of Furious 7 have something planned for this year’s Big Game.

The new movie hits theaters nationwide on April 3, 2015. It's been directed by James Wan, famous for movies like Saw and The Conjuring, and stars most of the old crew, including Paul Walker. Some of the late actor’s scenes were completed with the help of brothers Cody and Caleb Walker together with some CGI magic. New faces include the likes of Tony Jaa, Djimon Hounsou, Kurt Russell and bad guy Jason Statham.

As for Super Bowl XLIX, the action gets underway this Sunday with the New England Patriots facing off against the Seattle Seahawks at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. You can see some of the other spots set to air during the game at this link.
