Paul Walker’s death resulted in the seventh Fast & Furious movie being delayed until 2015 to allow director James Wan time to reshoot parts of the movie by bringing in the actor’s lookalike brother for key scenes.
The first poster for Fast & Furious 7 (titled Furious 7 in the US) has now been released, and the trailer will follow in just seven days time! The studio have also announced “The Road to Furious 7: Trailer Launch Event” at Universal Studios in Los Angeles which will also be broadcast online live if the commute to LA sounds a bit much.
If you do happen to be in the area, they’ll start giving out tickets tomorrow via the movie’s Facebook page.
Fans can submit questions for cast members Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, and Jason Statham to be answered at the live event.
Since the release of Fast Five in 2011, the franchise has gone from strength to strength and is big earner for Universal. The tragic passing of Walker obviously had a huge impact on this instalment, but it has since been reported that his character will be given a fitting send off in the seventh Fast & Furious movie.
Below is the Fast & Furious 7 trailer announcement video containing some of the franchise’s best moments as well as the new UK poster and US Facebook banner.
