Furious 7

"We're being hunted!" It's here! At an event in Los Angeles on November 1st, Universal unveiled the first teaser trailer for James Wan's highly anticipated Furious 7, the seventh movie in the Fast and Furious franchise. This one stars Paul Walker, in one of his very final roles after his tragic death, as well as just about everyone else: Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Lucas Black, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Elsa Pataky, Jordana Brewster, Djimon Hounsou and Tony Jaa. This one looks even better than the last one, packed with some insanely awesome can't-believe-they-did-that car action (check this out) and I really can't wait to see it, to be totally honest. Fire it up below! "One last ride."

Here's the first official trailer for James Wan's sequel Furious 7, direct from @FastFurious on Twitter:

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.

    James Wan looks like he is going to hit a home-run with this one. Can't wait to see it.
    • Jon Odishaw
      I think you're right. It looks like he took everything we loved about the first six movies and then upped the ante.
  • Yes.
    • shiboleth
      yeah, guilty, guilty pleasure. I must agree...
  • qweqwu
    What next for Furious 8? UFO's? Transformers?
    • Jon Odishaw
      Really? you didn't like what you saw here?
      • Enola
        I liked what they showed, but I get what Qweqwu is saying. F&F started as a "realistic" street racing movie, and the way they are going with the franchise I guess the next will be "Fast & the Furious In Space"... The last two movies have been guilty pleasures for me, and this looks like it will be the same. The Rock with a mini-gun, what is there not to like :-)
        • Jon Odishaw
          Well I understand people who liked the first one and don't like this but if I recall correctly the 2nd, 3rd and 4th movies blew chunks. The last two brought life back into the hollow shell that was left of the series. So anyone expecting another "first movie" is in the wrong place.
          • OfficialJab
            It's not that they're worse, that they're wackier. 5 and 6 are awesome.
  • Ricardo_PT
    This is just so over the top :/ Meh. The first movie was actually good. I hope they at least give an emotional farewell to Walker.
    • shiboleth
      Every one of them up to the fourth installment was more-less atrocious and only after that one (F&F4) things get better for me. I mean, I agree, it's nothing serious, but quite enjoyable... Too bad P. Walker is gone ...
    • Chris Groves
      If these movies are too over the top for you, I don't want to hear that you are a fan of superhero movies.
      • Ricardo_PT
        Like that comparison makes any sense...I don't love superhero movies, but I do enjoy them and for the most part are miles away from anything this franchise has ever delivered. And I'm sorry but when a superhero movie seems more plausible than a sequel to a movie that started with just some guys street racing, maybe there's a problem.
        • Chris Groves
          I'm just saying that, if you are able to suspend your disbelief for a reality where super suits, super-humans, and super-powered aliens from other planets/galaxies exist but you CAN'T accept a reality with a few over the top car stunts, maybe there is a problem. But it isn't with these movies, it is with you. Iron Man is more plausible than a car with a parachute? I'm not debating either being particularly realistic. I like superhero movies a hell of a lot more than the Fast franchise(which I obviously enjoy as well) but if we are going to open up this 'well this is just ridiculous' can of can't argue that the superhero genre inherently is one of the most ridiculous things ever, and some over-the-top car-fu, as unrealistic as it is, is still more realistic than aliens and flying robot suits. I'm not criticizing your right to an opinion, just the logic behind it.
          • Bl00dwerK
            If the F&F movies were set in a non-realistic world I would agree with you, but they are suppossed to be set in our world. That argument doesn't really hold water...
          • Chris Groves
            If you think action movies are supposed to be a 100% reflection of reality, then I have some sad news for you. No movie is "Real life", every single movie operates under its own rules. Comedies go way more ridiculous and have people that are far more stupid than anyone in real life would be, action movies have people that are stronger, faster, never break bones when jumping off of roofs or through windows or anything like that. It is all hyper-reality, horror films, comedies, action films, even romance's all amplified. So the logic of 'Well, the Fast and Furious franchise isn't as over the top as superhero films, so it isn't allowed to be unrealistic AT ALL' is just utterly ridiculous.
          • qweqwu
            Grow up dude.
          • Chris Groves
            Yes, clearly I'm the one that needs to grow up. Screw me for having a neatly elucidated opinion.
    • Bl00dwerK
      I agree. They've been getting more unbelievable as they go on...
  • Rembo
    painfull to see Walker.
  • Justin R
    I couldn't help my laugh at the opening scene of this trailer. These movies keep getting worse and worse with the type of stunts they try to pull off. I don't think I've enjoyed any F&F movie after the first one, but that's just me.
    • TheOct8pus
      You're not the only one.
  • shiboleth
    Just for fun, will watch it just for fun... Unfortunately, it's too well crafted for me to avoid it...
  • Xerxexx
    Chicka chicka yeah!
  • Trey Wilson
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Yawn.
  • Nielsen700
    These are always fun.
    Looks fun and I was touched and sickened by Dom's family lines.
  • JBrotsis
    It's very interesting, kinda crazy, to see how far the FF franchise has come with this movie compared to what the first was about. Like if someone told me what would be happening now, when FF1 came out, I'd find it hard to believe. This looks totally awesome!
  • IamSlave
    Man, I remember as a teenager still going to the movies to watch the first one and never really liked them after but the last one was really fun. Crazy to think how long these movies have been around for.
  • Zo fazt, Zo Furiuoz. Faster and more furious evra timez
  • avconsumer2
    This looks better than the last one. Will see.
  • dawko
    Unfortunately, you can't really notice the change of direction, since the whole production team is unchanged.
    • Chris Groves
      Unfortunately? It isn't like the last two weren't pretty freaking awesome. A huge change in the 'feel' of the films would be too jarring. It looks like Wan knows what type of film he is directing here, and is well aware of the franchise he is on board...which is a good thing. I still think that a trailer wouldn't really communicate a stylistic shift anyway. A different tone might be more noticeable in the full film, the 'feel' might come down to the details, more subtle things than just the highlights of the movie. But in general, I'm glad it feels consistent, looks like the stunts will be crazy, the action looks largely practically achieved and not overly-reliant on CGI
      • dawko
        Well, that CGI looks pretty disgusting...Still hoping for a good movie, Fast 6 was a bit of a let down after the incredible Fast 5.
  • TheOct8pus
    I hear there's a half our scene where Vin Diesel stands in line at the DMV waiting to register his new hot rod....then there's another long scene where Michelle Rodriguez is on the phone for an hour with the car insurance company after a fender bender. Much excitement.
    • shane willett
      don't forget she shaves her mustache while being on hold...
  • shane willett
    So is this the last one ?
    • VAharleywitch
      I believe so. There's still talk of Johnson's character having a spin-off, but I believe this is the last ride for the F&F cast/family.
  • steve
    Thank god Rock get's the fight with Statham. Should be awesome
  • steve
    And I think at that last clip with Walker in the white shirt, it's not him and is one of the scenes with his brothers and the cgi face. It's probably showing that theres nothing to worry about and that it'll look like he never died and is still in the movie
  • Mike Smith
    Man i cant wait for this movie to come out. Its going to be raw..
