November 2013, saw Fast & Furious 7 star Paul Walker die in a fiery car crash with good friend Roger Rodas, who was driving the vehicle and today the trailer for the newest in the F&F franchise shows the late star in an awesome stunt 2:21 minutes into the trailer which has been uploaded onto the Internet on November 1, 2014. The world was shocked last year, when Walker was killed in an accident on November 30. Somewhat bizarrely the late star had been the subject of a death hoax the day before and on the same day that Paul’s agent had to reassure his fans that Walker was still alive, the same man then had to announce his client’s death.
Set against the backdrop of Charles Manson and his drugged out family of killers as well as a time when people were questioning whether God was dead, Annabelle features the demon doll first seen in James Wan’s film The Conjuring and the creepy looking thing scares very thoroughly indeed. On the plus side, there are some gooseflesh inducing moments and clever little touches that the audience may miss while screaming at the more obvious “scare.” There are not many though so it behooves the viewer to pay close attention, if that is possible with the rest of the audience screeching and jumping at the events unfolding on the screen. On the not so plus side, a lot of the scares are formulaic and although they work there are points taken off for lack of originality. The movie is, however, impressively entertaining and scary.
Paul Walker died in a fiery car crash November 2013 and before the year was over, news was that Cody Walker would be filling in for his brother in Fast & Furious 7, now it looks like he is out. At least according to the latest reports from sources connected with the studio making the seventh film in the popular franchise.
While fans of Fast & Furious 7 were excited to hear Cody Walker alluding to his casting in the last Fast & Furious installment on his Facebook page, it turns out that the page is fake and is not confirmation of Walker’s stepping in for his late brother. The page, which was created on Dec. 16, 2013 is not verified and contains the cryptic short message that Cody will “see you soon” in F&F.
After Vin Diesel let the cat out of the bag about the new release date of Fast & Furious 7 via Facebook yesterday, Universal studios confirmed not only the 2015 premiere date change, but they say that the Paul Walker scenes are going to remain in the finished film. The film has been on an indefinite hiatus after the death of 40 year-old Walker on Nov. 30 this year.
