Watch: FURIOUS 7 Trailer Arrives... (1st FAST & FURIOUS film to spark my interest)

Written by

Seven movies in, and for the first time, I actually have a desire to see a film from THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS franchise. I was lost on the first two movies, which I thought at the time (perhaps a revisit is in order?) were terrible - the first I recall being worse than I'd expected. So I tuned out for the next four installments, and here lands the trailer for FURIOUS 7, and I'm in. Directed by James Wan (SAW) and with Jason Statham (EVERYTHING) joining the massive ensemble cast, how the crew has become parachuting globetrotting government agents (?) with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Kurt Russell is beyond me, but the film that the late Paul Walker was working on prior to his untimely death is now planted firmly on my "most anticipated" list for 2015. Check out the trailer below...

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, Nathalie Emmanuel and Kurt Russell. Neal H. Moritz, Vin Diesel and Michael Fottrell return to produce the film written by Chris Morgan.
