Say what you will about the craft behind The Fast and The Furious franchise, but they are undeniably a good time. Fans know what to expect: lots of action, over-the-top performances, and ridiculous stunts—like the one below, which appears in the newest entry, The Fate of the Furious, coming out this Friday.

Yup, that's a 32,000-pound steel wrecking ball that's smashing those cars to smithereens. A real wrecking ball. No CGI to be found here, which makes the effect all the more satisfying. Cleary, it's the ingenuity behind these stunts that keeps audiences coming back for more.

The Fate of The Furious marks the introduction of Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren to a cast already featuring heavy hitters Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, Kurt Russell, and Jason Statham. The film, which is already getting some positive buzz, is directed by Straight Outta Compton's F. Gary Gray.
