First it was The Fast and the Furious. Then it was 2 Fast 2 Furious. We have now reached the seventh entry into the ultra-successful F&F franchise and its transformation from street racers stealing DVD players to being one of the premiere action movie franchises. The series has finally come full circle tying together the third entry nobody cared for (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift), because it doesn’t feature Vin Diesel or Paul Walker in primary roles, in making it a story of vengeance!
Previously set to be released summer 2014, the untimely passing of Paul Walker put a halt to production, which pushed back the release to spring 2015. James Wan (who previously directed The Conjuring), steps into the director’s chair replacing Justin Lin (who helmed the four previous F&F films), and he looks to continue the strong momentum of the high-octane action-adventure series. Gaining testosterone with the addition of Dwayne Johnson in Fast Five the franchise looks to fire on all cylinders with Diesel, the late Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, plus the addition of Kurt Russell, Jason Statham and the return of Lucas Black!
Furious 7 is set to drop April 3, 2015 and judging by this trailer fans of the series will definitely get their money’s worth.
