The road to the seventh film in the Fast & Furious franchise begins here...
Despite the continued efforts of unofficial chief publicist Vin Diesel, it’s been a while since we’ve seen anything from the seventh outing of the Fast & Furious franchise. That is all set to change now, as Universal Pictures has a major announcement to make: the trailer for Furious 7 will be released in just seven days - and it appears that the movie has a brand spanking new title to boot.
The trailer will be revealed at "The Road to Furious 7: Trailer Launch Event" at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, and tickets for the film will start to go on sale today - Monday, Oct. 27th.
The pre-trailer we have for you gives us a hint as to what will happen with Paul Walker's character, Brian O'Connor. Walker died a year ago while the film was still in production and he never got to finish his work. Many wondered whether the film would cut his role out and whether the footage he filmed would be used. Some of the questions have seemingly been answered, but not completely...
So, check out the new launch trailer - a trailer of footage from the previous Fast & Furious movies with a tease for Furious 7. Let's go for a little ride:
In the words of Vinny, it's "just like old times." Awesome.
And for those of you who haven't seen this yet, here's a behind-the-scenes teaser that Ludacris just Tweeted out, called "7 Seconds of 7:"
The movie will mark the late actor Paul Walker's last performance on the big screen since his death in a tragic car accident. With the movie serving as a tribute to the fallen star, expect to hear more about him as the promotions persist with the Fast & Furious sequel.
