Car lovers around the world are anxiously anticipating the release of ‘Furious 7’ — the seventh and final installment in the ‘Fast & Furious’ film series. And nobody seems to be more excited than Vin Diesel.

The film’s star and producer made a bold statement, telling Variety that his upcoming movie will make history and take home golden statues at the Oscars.

“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,” Diesel told Variety.

It’s true, movie experts are anticipating the movie will break some box-office records, but if “Birdman” taught us anything, it’s that box-office gross means squat when it comes to winning awards. Will this be the exception?

Audiences can judge for themselves when ‘Furious 7’ hits theaters on April 3.
