A new Furious 7 international trailer has gone online following last night’s world premiere at SXSW (read Perri’s review here). In the latest installment in the action franchise, Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker), and the rest of the gang are fighting for their lives against vengeful mastermind Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham). This trailer has some bits of new footage, but mostly sets up that Dom, Brian, et al. hit back after Shaw kills Han, almost kills Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), and blows up Dom’s home. Somehow, this counterstrike will involve dropping cars out of airplanes because of course it will.
Check out the new Furious 7 international trailer below. The film opens April 3rd, and also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Ronda Rousey, Tony Jaa, Ludacris, Djimon Hounsou, Lucas Black, Elsa Pataky, and Kurt Russell.
