It’s finally here. Months of hype and set photos put up by Vin Diesel through his Facebook page have built up to the first trailer of the next chapter in the high octane film franchise. Here is the first trailer for Furious 7.
After an abrupt stop in production due to the tragic death of Paul Walker, the fate of The Fast and Furious franchise was in jeopardy. But pulling together through the tragedy and wanting the film to honor Walker and his Brian O’Connor character, filming resumed later and the high-octane franchise is ready to bring the next chapter to its legion of fans.
This new film finds franchise newcomer Jason Statham (The Transporter series) playing Ian Shaw seeking revenge against Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew for the death of his brother.
Looking at this preview, it’s safe to say that Furious 7 will have more insanely and over-the-top action pieces, exotic locations, and those fast cars. It could be the best film of the franchise that seems to keep getting better since the return of the original cast. Judging from this preview, the film does not lose its constant theme of family.
Furious 7 roars into theaters on April 3, 2015.
