Vin Diesel posts new 'Fast & Furious 7' photos

Fast & Furious fans have less than a year until the much-anticipated seventh installment of the franchise hits the big screen. And considering that the sixth film ended with the reveal that Jason Statham, also known as Owen Shaw’s brother, was behind Han’s death at the end of Tokyo Drift, Dom and his crew are all set to face yet another formidable opponent this time around.

But aside from the return of Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, and company, we don’t know much about the film, other than that it will add Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey, and Kurt Russell to the mix. The details of the story remain a mystery, along with how they’ll say goodbye to Paul Walker’s Brian O’Conner.

On Tuesday, Diesel posted new photos from the film on his Facebook page announcing that he has seen the film’s trailer. Diesel wrote: “Universal came to visit, to show the trailer for FF7…Speechless… yeah, it was that INCREDIBLE! I must also say, that it was emotional and bittersweet… we all went above and beyond to make Pablo proud, but man, I wish he could see what we have created and just how far we have come.”

In one photo, fans can see both Brian and Dom wearing suits, a rarity in the franchise’s history. Our best guess? They just came from Han’s funeral, and Dom is going to take that suit jacket off in less than 10 minutes.

As for the second image, Dom appears to be taping up his hands as if he’s going to get into a boxing match of some sort. Hey, this is the same guy who threw The Rock through a wall two movies ago—or was he the one that was thrown? Either way, we’d put our money on Dom, because he’s basically a superhero at this point, yeah? Seriously. He can fly.

'Brick Mansions' trailer: Paul Walker gets crazy physical in one of his final roles -- VIDEO

The late Paul Walker is in full action-hero mode in the new trailer for Brick Mansions, one of the final films the actor shot before his untimely death in November. As undercover cop Damien Collier, Walker teams up with ex-con Lino (free-running expert David Belle) to take down drug lord Tremaine (RZA) in the Detroit projects known as Brick Mansions. Oh, and said underworld kingpin killed Collier’s dad, has kidnapped Lino’s girlfriend, and is hiding a weapon of mass destruction. How’s that for drama? READ FULL STORY

'Brick Mansions' trailer: Paul Walker's last complete movie looks totally insane

Before his untimely death in November, actor Paul Walker had already completed work on Brick Mansions, the latest romp from the Luc Besson Euro-Action Factory. A trailer for Brick Mansions has just arrived. There is no other way to say this: It looks crazy. Walker plays a cop sent into a walled-off mega-slum filled with parkour-fighting criminals led by underworld uber-boss RZA. Walker has to save the mayor and jump off of a lot of buildings and fight everyone, everyone, everyone. It’s basically Escape from the Raid Furious — and it’s actually an English-language remake of the 2004 French film District B13. (Brick Mansions actually co-stars District B13 lead David Belle.)

Also, not sure I mentioned this yet, but the RZA is in this movie. Anyhow, watch and marvel: READ FULL STORY

Kurt Russell on kindred spirit Paul Walker: 'He was a hell of a good guy'

Kurt Russell has played his share of tough guys and gear-heads — in movies like Death Proof and the recent festival indie The Art of the Steal — so he was always a logical target for the ever-expanding Fast and Furious franchise. Last September, Vin Diesel broke the news that Russell was on board for Fast and Furious 7, and Paul Walker later told MTV News that Russell would play a “father-figure” type to his character, Brian O’Conner, and Diesel’s Dom Toretto.

Of course, Walker’s tragic and untimely death, from a high-speed car accident, was a giant blow to those who knew him, including Russell. “That was a terrific guy,” says Russell. “I just met him on the [movie] and I was just very struck by how similar our lives are and how we looked at life. All the things he did outside of acting that he really enjoyed were similar to the things that I like to do. He was a hell of a good guy.”

Universal suspended production and is currently reconsidering ways to complete the movie for its April 2015 release date. “I’m waiting to hear what we’re going to do and how that’s going to go forward,” says Russell, who soon heads to the Sundance Film Festival, where his extended family has several projects being showcased. “At the time, we were talking about [my character] possibly going into a future episode as a sort of father-figure to Vin and Paul’s character — or possibly die in Fast and Furious 7. The character was created to go either way, and it will be interesting to see what they do now, if there’s any change in that. I don’t know if there will be. But obviously, they’re working hard on doing what they have to do to try to make that thing work. I think they’re going to gear up again in February or March, so we’ll see.”

'Fast & Furious 7': Vin Diesel reveals 2015 release date

Fast & Furious 7 has secured a new release date: April 10, 2015. Franchise star Vin Diesel posted the news on his Facebook page Sunday night, accompanied by a photo of himself with the late Paul Walker.

Diesel explained the photo on his page: “The last scene we filmed together…There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared… in the film we were now completing… the magic captured… and, in just how far we’ve come…Fast and Furious 7 will be released…April 10th 2015!”

He added: “P.s. He’d want you to know first…”
