Fast & Furious will hit theaters a week earlier than previously
planned. Universal Pictures announced recently that
the racing movie, most recently set for release April 10, 2015, will now open
April 3, 2015. The studio is planning a worldwide
day-and-date opening for the movie and decided that opening a week earlier
allowed it to book more international playdates.
Continuing the global exploits in the unstoppable
franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the
returning cast of "Fast & Furious 7." James Wan directs this
chapter of the hugely successful series that also welcomes back favorites
Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris"
Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black. They are joined by international action
stars new to the franchise including Jason Statham, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa,
Ronda Rousey and Kurt Russell. Neal H. Moritz, Vin Diesel and Michael Fottrell
return to produce the film written by Chris Morgan.
