The seventh film in the “Fast and the Furious” franchise has scored a title and trailer launch date. James Wan directs the new entry which was originally slated for this past summer until the tragic death of Paul Walker forced a production shut down and three months of effects-intensive further filming.
It was a challenge to say the least, but the results are about to pay off with the film’s official Facebook account confirming the trailer is set to debut next week. In the process they also confirm the film’s title – “Furious 7”. That’s not unexpected, following the titles “Fast Five” and “Furious 6” for the previous two entries.
Here are the details for the trailer launch event:
