It's one of those All The Best Bits trailers, isn't it?

Impossible. It has the Stath in. All the best bits will be every bit with the Stathe.

Pedantry aside, it basically gives away a couple of the high spots, an abrievated version of a full throwaway fight and the general jist of the plot

It looks like it gives away a good chunk of the climax, though. That shouldn't happen ever.

 

You could have shot the jeep/chopper spot without giving away who was driving either, or alluding to the context of the spot. M:I Fallout pulled a great bait/switch with their chase sequence, for example.

Why would anyone watch that trailer? You know it's going to spoil so much.

Hype, a pulse pounding adrenaline rush hype boner. Yeah It's pretty spoiler heavy. Of course the plot of a FF film is wonderfully the same every time just with all new ricockulous action set pieces.

Perhaps but its Fast & Furious. That scene could easily be in the middle of it due to the mental scale of their set pieces.

Keep seeing a poster on the side of buses for a film starring Seth Rogan called Longshot. Should I be in the superhero thread for that, or is it just a coincidental title? 

It's about a presidential candidate meeting up with an old friend who is now a journalist.  Looks like a rom-com from the trailers.

Adverts are easy money for an actor, why wouldn’t they do them? Orson Welles said “I’d rather do an honest ad than a dishonest movie” and he was Transformers so he knows what he’s on about. And I think he directed a Burger King ad once, fired someone on the first day.
