Since the recent release of fiery-packed trailer for Furious 7, fans have a much better sense of what to expect from the movie, and connect the dots. Enstars rounds up all that is known about the action thriller thus far.
The over 2 minute long clip starts with an intense action sequence which packs in a whole lot of speedy thrills as Toretto, Brian O'Connor (Paul Walker), Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodrigue) and Tej Parker (Ludacris), are out to rescue a kidnapped girl and fight a bunch of anatagonists, one of whom, Louie Tran, is played by Tony Jaa, getting away in a massive trailer truck. The scene ends with a O'Connor's stealth moves and great timing as he rescues the girl and escapes from the truck which is slipping off a cliff.
Cut to the crew in Abu Dhabi, and also a bunch of appearances by Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson). The trailer shows that the movie is going to be a hell of a ride and fans should fasten their seatbelts.
Director James Wan will be helming the franchise for the very first time with the seventh in the series.
Despite Paul Walker's sudden death, and the impediments it spurred, the team has pulled itself together quite beautifully -- while still reeling from the tragedy -- and helped complete the film. Until recently there was little certainty on how Walker's character, Brian O'Connor will be bid adieu on the movie, and actors like Jordana Brewster, who plays Mia Toretto, Connor's lover in the film, had suggested that it will be "bittersweet."
But new reports revealed that the character will be given a happy send-off as opposed to what most believed, that he would be killed off in a car crash. Walker's younger brothers Cody and Caleb Walker stepped in to help complete Connor's character arc. Cody has also signed on to play a new character in the Fast and Furious 8.
If Brian will indeed receive a smooth exit and not one in a car crash as was being suspected, it seems like Caleb, the older of the two brothers will be playing Walker's part. Perhaps, Caleb will help conclude Brian's arc in the movie, while Cody plays the part of his brother.
The movie has mostly been shot in Abu Dhabi and Los Angeles.
Furious 7 will hit theaters in April 3, 2015.
