The first, official trailer for Fast and Furious 7 will be released on November 1!
“Fast & Furious fans worldwide…. The new Fast7 trailer is gonna drop Nov 1st we did this in Paul’s honor. This movie is going to shock the world…..”
The announcement was included with an emotional caption of a picture taken of Tyrese Gibson and Paul Walker.
“This photo was taken in Nobu in Vegas – seems like yesterday!! I was in Vegas recently and walked by that exact booth and had a moment I almost cried. We were so happy that day just being silly and talking about sexy girls.”
Tyrese has used the same photo as his Facebook profile picture for the majority of the time (if not all) that has passed since Paul Walker’s tragic death last November.
There are at least four distinct reasons why the first official Fast and Furious 7 trailer will “shock the world,” just like Tyrese said that it would.
1. It will give Fast and Furious fans a chance to see Brian O’Conner (played by Paul Walker) again. Several films featuring Paul Walker have been released since his death (including Hours and Brick Mansions). However, perhaps the most prominent role of Paul Walker’s lengthy movie career was as Brian in the Fast and Furious movies.
2. The Fast and Furious 7 movie trailer may also provide viewers with a glimpse of how Paul Walker’s brothers were worked into the production. Keep in mind that both brothers were used during the filming of Fast and Furious 7 in order to finish off Paul Walker’s incomplete scenes and to help wrap up the revised script.
3. Keep in mind that there was a completely different person sitting in the director’s chair this time around. Instead of Justin Lin (the man who was credited for putting the Fast and Furious franchise back on the map), James Wan was responsible for creating this potential big-screen masterpiece. As if making the transition from horror/suspense movies wasn’t hard enough, James Wan also had to deal with a major revamping of his original plans after Paul Walker died. The trailer will give fans a taste of what James Wan was able to accomplish with Fast and Furious 7 overall.
4. Seeing Paul Walker again in Fast and Furious 7 will be great, but many fans simply just want to see the new trailer. With all of the press and media that has been circulating around the movie (especially since Paul’s death on November 30 of last year) many fans are just excited to see what happens next. How is Jason Statham and the many other new cast members (including Ronda Rousey, Kurt Russell, Tony Jaa, and even Iggy Azalea) going to be worked into the story?

There is still a little more than three weeks left before the official Fast and Furious 7 trailer is released. The actual movie is scheduled to be released on April 3, 2015 — which is less than six months away. Perhaps other celebrities from the cast (i.e. Vin Diesel) will use their social media profiles to leak more information about it in the meantime.
What do you think?
