An official poster, official synopsis, and official name change: all things that are — wait for it — officially official about the latest "Fast and Furious" installment. Ladies and gentlemen: get your engines revved for "Furious 7."
With the original crew back together and a fitting send-off for Paul Walker, who died during the filming of "Furious 7," James Wan's latest feature has been making headlines for months. But now we've all got something meaty to sink our teeth into when it comes to the film's details. Not only has the film's new title been released, but so has an official synopsis for the cinematic doings of this mega-franchise.
"Continuing the global exploits in the unstoppable franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of 'Furious 7.' James Wan directs this chapter of the hugely successful series that also welcomes back favorites Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black. They are joined by international action stars new to the franchise including Jason Statham, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey and Kurt Russell. Neal H. Moritz, Vin Diesel and Michael Fottrell return to produce the film written by Chris Morgan."
But the real exciting part? The new poster, duh! We are living in a visual age, after all, so what better way to celebrate the film's new title than with a shiny new image, eh?
According to ComingSoon.Net, the new title may come as a bit of a surprise considering the previous two movies being titled as "Fast Five" and "Furious Six," even though the latter was not marketed as such. That film's director, Justin Lin, explained that "it was always designed to be 'Fast Five' and 'Furious Six,'" to the outlet. "'Furious Six' was going to be a kind of culmination and wrap-up of 'Fast & Furious' itself. I had it that way and that's the way it's going to be."
So, who's ready to get fast and furious one more time? Watch the brief clip from the actors below to get even more excited:
