E! held a live panel discussion that I have to say was just “painful”. Thank God that Ludacris and Jason Statham were there because the rest of the cast was like watching very attractive paint dry. Vin Diesel struggles to find his next thought and Tyrese is so full of himself that even when he’s trying not to be full of himself, it comes off as a guy who is full of himself trying to let people think that he’s not. (Did you get that?).
Statham and Ludacris are just charming without effort and the Rock who is also super charismatic was unfortunately not there. However, don’t’ worry, as you can see in the trailer he is in the movie.
Furious 7 is the first film that actually takes place after Tokyo Drift. The previous films actually take place after Furious 2 and Tokyo drift. This is something that I did not realize until this past week. Universal released a seven second behind the scenes video each day up until today in an effort they called “7 Seconds of 7”. Honestly they were all really not worthy of reporting on because the trailer is all I and most fans really wanted to see.
If you are a movie snob, or one of the people who sit there and point out things like physics and gravity and what is real life and what is not, then this isn’t for you and I suggest you click a link and move on. If you are not, then you will not be able to contain your excitement. This is everything a car/action movie ever wants to be. It takes cars, action, money, hot guys, hot girls and fight scenes to the level that modern day blockbusters with IMAX viewing should be. The movie hits theaters April 3, 2015.
At this point talk (and type) is cheap so without further adieu I present: FURIOUS 7 – THE OFFICIAL TRAILER
