It’s been a long road for Furious 7, which now is the official title of the next installment in the Fast & Furious franchise. After it’s star Paul Walker was in a fatal car crash, production was delayed for a little bit while they figured out what to do. It eventually got back on track, with a release date set for April of next year. That should mean a trailer is coming soon, which is true.
On their Facebook, which has a pretty sizable following, the first poster for the newly titled Furious 7 was revealed:
We want to share this moment with all of our fans around the world. For those of you not able to attend in person, you’ll be able to follow a live broadcast starting at noon Pacific on the Fast & Furious Facebook page and on E!.

For our extended FAST & FURIOUS family, we have set out to make the very best movie yet. We are excited to continue our journey together.
Apparently trailers getting release dates is the new thing in Hollywood. It hasn’t worked too well so far, especially considering the Age of Ultron trailer leak. Setting a premiere date for the Furious 7 trailer is not a bad idea though, especially considering the loyal fanbase it’s managed to grow. Letting it become a social event is a smart marketing idea too, so Universal seems to know what it’s doing with Furious 7, at least marketing-wise.
Would you be willing to go to a premiere of a trailer? I know Marvel is planning to do a similar event next week with Age of Ultron, but sadly like this it’s limited to the Los Angeles area.
