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

Fast & Furious 7 Paul Walker

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.

    F and F 7 won’t be the same without the actor of Paul Walker and he was the best of everything in his movies and I should know because I have got some of his movies on D.V.D :( Paul Walker is gone but he’ll never be forgotten because he’ll be in our hearts always and forever more

    I was really looking forward to this F&F more so than the others so when I heard about the move date to 2015 I was disappointed.

      Why are you disappointed? I would have assumed that Paul Walker was central to this film like he was in the previous film so his death would have caused massive problems for the film. Hence why they had to stop production and rewrite the script.
