Following last night’s excellent Furious 7 trailer, Universal has released more images from the upcoming film. In the latest installment in the action franchise, Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker), and the rest of the gang are fighting for their lives against vengeful mastermind Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham). I’m genuinely excited for Furious 7, and I’ve never been excited for a new Fast & Furious movie until now. The action looks totally bonkers, and I can’t wait to see the all-out contempt for basic physics.
The film opens April 3rd, and also stars Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Ronda Rousey, Tony Jaa, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Djimon Hounsou, Lucas Black, Elsa Pataky, and Kurt Russell.
Here’s the official synopsis for Furious 7:
Continuing the global exploits in the unstoppable franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of Furious 7. James Wan directs this chapter of the hugely successful series that also welcomes back favorites Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black. They are joined by international action stars new to the franchise including Jason Statham, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey and Kurt Russell. Neal H. Moritz, Vin Diesel and Michael Fottrell return to produce the film written by Chris Morgan.
