Release date

'Asphalt Burning' releases on Netflix on January 2, 2021.


'Asphalt Burning' or 'Børning 3' is the third film in the 'Børning' franchise, which began as a parody of 'The Fast & The Furious' films. In this third film, after Roy (Anders Baasmo Christiansen) is left at the altar by an uncertain bride, he and his team make their way to Germany to race at the world-renowned Nürburgring race track. The competition is fierce, and the prize? The bride herself.

Roy is going to be going up against some dangerous characters in a race to win back his own bride — and if he's going to race on the Nürburgring track, his car is going to need the ultimate upgrade.
