‘Fast & Furious 7’ to Open a Week Earlier on April 3

Universal Pictures has moved up the release date of its next installment in the “Fast and Furious” franchise from April 10 to April 3.

The movie was originally scheduled to bow this summer, but after Paul Walker died in a car crash last November while the film was still shooting, the studio moved the release date to 2015 in order to reconfigure the reshoots that would have to take place.

Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson return along with new cast members Kurt Russell and Jason Statham.
