First Promos for James Wan's 'Furious 7' Arrive in Advance of Trailer
Vengeance Hits Home. This first banner may be nothing but a Photoshop mash-up of the seven lead actors, but for fans of this series it's an exciting announcement reminding us that this seventh movie is still on the way. Despite the tragic death of actor Paul Walker last year, director James Wan and the rest of the cast worked together to finish this movie with the help of his family and friends. Universal has announced that the title of Fast & Furious 7 will be just Furious 7, and the first trailer is launching on Saturday, November 1st one week from now. Check out the first promo art and read more on the trailer event below.
In addition to the banner, they are also launching "7 Seconds of 7" on Facebook which is yet another way to build hype for the trailer: "Every day get a 7 second glimpse of #Furious7 as we count down to the Trailer Launch Event!!" The event will take place at Universal Studios in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon and fans can get tickets by following Fast & Furious on social media. The first 7 second glimpse is embedded below, with director James Wan adding: "These 7 seconds promos, 7 of them, are really fun, short behind-the-scene [sic] look of the movie." Here's the first launch video with some quick glimpses at the production:

Fast & Furious 7 is directed by James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious) and written by Chris Morgan (who has written all the Fast & Furious sequels including and following Tokyo Drift). Though no plot details have been revealed, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker return in the sequel along with most of their crew. Jason Statham is in hot pursuit as the film's villain (brother of Luke Evans' character Shaw) and other new cast members include Tony Jaa, Djimon Housou, Ronda Rousey and Kurt Russell. The film was delayed after Paul Walker died in a car crash before filming ended. Universal Pictures releases Fast & Furious 7 on April 3rd, 2015.
