Vin Diesel posts new 'Fast & Furious 7' photos
Fast & Furious fans have less than a year until the much-anticipated seventh installment of the franchise hits the big screen. And considering that the sixth film ended with the reveal that Jason Statham, also known as Owen Shaw’s brother, was behind Han’s death at the end of Tokyo Drift, Dom and his crew are all set to face yet another formidable opponent this time around.
But aside from the return of Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, and company, we don’t know much about the film, other than that it will add Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey, and Kurt Russell to the mix. The details of the story remain a mystery, along with how they’ll say goodbye to Paul Walker’s Brian O’Conner.
On Tuesday, Diesel posted new photos from the film on his Facebook page announcing that he has seen the film’s trailer. Diesel wrote: “Universal came to visit, to show the trailer for FF7…Speechless… yeah, it was that INCREDIBLE! I must also say, that it was emotional and bittersweet… we all went above and beyond to make Pablo proud, but man, I wish he could see what we have created and just how far we have come.”
In one photo, fans can see both Brian and Dom wearing suits, a rarity in the franchise’s history. Our best guess? They just came from Han’s funeral, and Dom is going to take that suit jacket off in less than 10 minutes.
As for the second image, Dom appears to be taping up his hands as if he’s going to get into a boxing match of some sort. Hey, this is the same guy who threw The Rock through a wall two movies ago—or was he the one that was thrown? Either way, we’d put our money on Dom, because he’s basically a superhero at this point, yeah? Seriously. He can fly.
Fast & Furious 7 is scheduled for release on April 3, 2015.
