The summer may be over, and with it the end of another blockbuster year, but Vin Diesel isn’t ready to say goodbye to the high octane season just yet.
The Fast & Furious franchise star uploaded two new photos of the upcoming seventh installment on Facebook early Tuesday, Screenrant reported.
The first image, a shot of his character Dominic Toretto wrapping up his fists in the same manner a boxer would before a match, came with a message from Diesel promising numerous things for fans.
The first, and the most important tease, was the confirmation of a primary trailer that should be delivered to fans relatively soon.
“Universal came to visit, to show the trailer for FF7…Speechless…yeah, it was that INCREDIBLE,” Diesel wrote as a caption.
He added that watching the video was an, “emotional and bittersweet,” experience watching Walker on screen for his last F&F film.
“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.”
The second photo, a shot of Walker’s character Bryan “Buster” O’Connor and Toretto standing side by side wearing suits, is just as emotionally raw and powerful.
The suits are interesting, though, and insinuates this specific scene will take place before or after the funeral for Han, who died in the the third Fast & Furious film, Tokyo Drift, and where the seventh film picks up from.
The use of the scene was questioned by fans and critics after Walker’s death, and while no definitive answer was ever provided, it appears the funeral scene will play out as originally intended.
Although there isn’t any acknowledgment of when audiences will be able to see the upcoming Fast & Furious 7 trailer, Universal still has quite a few films they could slip the trailer into.
This author’s guess? Expect to see the trailer play before either Dracula: Untold on October 10 or Gone Girl on October 3.
The seventh installment is being directed by James Wan (Saw, Dead Silence) and is scheduled to be released April 3, 2015.
The film was originally scheduled to be released on July 11 of this year, but was pushed back following the untimely death of star Paul Walker on November 30, 2013.
