Universal Pictures premiered some “Fast & Furious 7” footage at the CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas. Latino-Review was in attendance.
More than half of the film was completed before the accidental death of actor Paul Walker last year. So the footage shown at the convention included Walker and not a double or CGI version of him.
The opening scene was with the entire crew with their vehicles in a cargo plane. They would parachute in their vehicles onto a road in a mountainous area except for Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) who is afraid of heights. But, Tej Parker (Ludacris) attaches a cable to the back of his vehicle and drags his vehicle out of the plane.
There’s a lot of quick montage scenes after that, including a first look at the villain Ian Shaw (Jason Statham) shooting a machine gun into the ceiling. And also the return of Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) shooting another big ass machine gun (it’s like the massive gun he carried in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”). There’s also a brief glimpse Kurt Russell as another villain in the film.
No further major plot details are revealed, but do expect plenty of vehicles, car chases, explosions, near naked women dancing, action sequences and more vehicles. And don’t forget the usual humor from Tyrese.
“Fast & Furious 7” will be in theaters on April 10 next year.
