First trailer of Fast & Furious – starring Iceland

Here is the first trailer for the new Fast & Furi­ous 8 action movie, scenes of which were filmed in Iceland, particularly on the frozen Mývatn lake in North Iceland.

The usually tranquil scene of the Mývatn winter wonderland was invaded this year by tanks, film crews, and – if the trailer is to be believed – submarines crashing through the ice.

Local mayor Regína Ásvaldsdóttir says that the filming – which involved up to 300 people – brought life and fun to the area and has a positive impact on local business.

“There were many projects for local craftsmen and other to undertake in connection with the filming,” she explains. “Search and rescue services also had a prominent role in handling safety at the filming locations – and this is of course a great source of income for them.”
