Fast and Furious 7 Release Date Sped Up a Week

Universal Studios has pushed down on the accelerator and moved up the Fast and Furious 7 release date by a week roughly 24 hours after Dwayne Johnson posted a photo of himself with the crew stating that he had just wrapped his work on the sequel.

The original Fast and Furious 7 release date was Friday, April 10, 2015, a date that no other studio had nabbed for their own new release. Rather than bump into stiff competition in the form of Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron in early May, Universal has moved up Fast and Furious 7 to April 3, 2015.

Fast and Furious 7 will now face off against Fox’s romantic drama The Longest Ride and have an extra week with little to now competition before the next heavy hitter arrives.

Universal was originally planning  to release Fast and Furious 7 this past April until Paul Walker died in a car accident in November 2013. The production was halted for months and then resumed with Walker’s brothers filling in to wrap up the character of Brian O’Conner, who will be retired in the film series rather than killed off.

To date Universal has not released an official still or teaser trailer for Fast and Furious 7. The only glimpses at the film have come via the social media accounts of stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, like the image above.
