'Fast and Furious 7' gets new title
2 Fast 2 Furious, The Fast and the Furious, Fast and Furious, Fast Five — the Fast and Furious franchise isn’t exactly known for creativity in its movie titles. Each one has at least the word “fast” in it, if not both “fast” and “furious,” but Universal Studios switched it up a bit for the latest film: Furious 7.
Though the film was previously called Fast and Furious 7, the franchise’s Facebook page premiered a poster for the film Sunday along with the new title.
The Furious 7 cast includes Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham, Tony Jaa, and Kurt Russell. Franchise star Paul Walker shot most of his scenes for the film before his 2013 death, and his brothers, Cody and Caleb, will appear in the movie to fill in any plot holes.
Furious 7 arrives in theaters April 3, 2015.
