Alfa Giulietta Takes to the Screen in Fast&Furious

Alfa Giulietta Takes to the Screen in Fast&Furious

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta will be taking to the big screen across New Zealand this weekend thanks to its starring role in the latest instalment in the Hollywood blockbuster series, Fast&Furious, in which the Italian hot hatch takes on a giant Russian aircraft and, of course, wins in a thrilling action sequence that leaves the Giulietta battered, bruised but victorious.

Alongside the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, the sixth instalment of the successful series stars actors Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Luke Evans, Elsa Pataky and Gina Carano.

Following the previous film’s action sequences set in the USA and Brazil, for the latest film London was chosen setting for 'Fast&Furious 6' - this is the first time that a film in the series is shot in Europe - and the location of one of the most thrilling scenes, an incredible drive that sees the film’s stars on board a potent Alfa Romeo Giulietta. First, the car 'debarks' from an enormous aircraft Antonov during take-off then it attempts to interrupt the cargo aircraft's take-off run in a breath-taking chase sequence.

In the end, it's the Giulietta who comes out on top, thanks to the model's outstanding performance and the bravery of the two stars, forcing the aircraft decisively off the runway and into a less than entirely successful takeoff…..

The entire sequence was shot using Alfa Romeo Giuliettas which were modified both inside and out. Having arrived back in Italy, the cars damaged during shooting were used to make a unique photo shoot that tells the story of what happened on the set of the action-packed and adrenaline-filled film.

What's more, the same scenes from the thrilling runway chase sequence have been used for the new Giulietta advert which is now on air on the main European television networks, and will soon be shown in other countries.

It's a genuine trailer, promoting both the cinema release of 'Fast&Furious 6' and the model that is meeting with so much international success: in absolute terms, from launch - May 2010 - to date, more than 192,000 Giuliettas have been ordered worldwide and with Alfa’s help, the global box office for Fast&Furious 6 has topped $100 million.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
