Additionally, in the days leading up to the event, the film will release a seven-second, behind-the-scenes video each day, in a project dubbed “7 Seconds of 7.” In the first video, released on Sunday after the announcement, viewers get a glimpse of star Paul Walker, who died last November in a car accident, Diesel and other cast members.

James Wan directs “Furious 7” from a script by Chris Morgan based on characters by Gary Scott Thompson. Lucas Black, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Kurt Russell and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges also star. Diesel, Michael Fottrell and Neil Moritz produce.
