The Furious 7 trailer is here after months of anticipation -- we are finally get our first look at the latest installment of one of the most successful franchises in Hollywood history.
So, what did we see? Well, before we comment too much on this brilliant piece of cinematic marketing. Take a look for yourself…
We are supremely thrilled with what director James Wan has done, stepping away from the horror genre that he has so masterfully made movies in and into an action franchise that shows this guy is the real deal. These action sequences -- which are merely a tease for what we’re in for when the film lands next year -- are truly mind-blowing. Well done, Mr. Wan, well done.
The other thing that is striking is how much we truly miss Paul Walker. We will never forget him, but seeing him in action in the franchise he helped found is, honestly, a little depressing. But, he leaves us with his movies, and none meant more to him than Furious 7 and the ones that came before.
Oh, and we would be remiss not to mention how awesome Jason Statham looks as our villain. After playing so many good guys over the years, it’s nice to see him go bad!
