With the cast and crew of Fast & Furious 7 already busy zipping around various California locales in production on the film, duties on releasing the first sort-of official image in the marketing campaign have fallen to a familiar source: Mr. Vin Diesel’s Facebook page. Take a look at the image above.
Yes, the prolific poster – who almost single-handedly got the word out about Riddick – is back on digital duty, throwing up an image of himself and co-star Paul Walker as Dominic Toretto and Brian O’Connor looking pensive at a lake. We’re going to go ahead and assume it’s not because there’s a scene where the pair pauses in their high-octane behaviour to feed some ducks. But, let’s not forget, there are always quieter, emotional scenes between the crew peppered between shots of them jumping from cars, crashing tanks, racing down the longest runway you’ve ever seen and more.
Fast & Furious 7 finds the usual team contemplating life as free men and women, albeit ones with targets on their backs thanks to taking out Luke Evans’ Owen Shaw in the sixth film. They have his brother Ian (Jason Statham) hunting them down.
Regulars such as Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Dwayne Johnson and Jordana Brewster are back, joined by new recruits including Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey and – assuming he’s definitely made a deal – Kurt Russell. With James Wan shepherding the vehicular mayhem, it’s set to arrive on July 25.
