Actually they're just calling this one "Furious 7." Maybe because it's more hashtag-able that way.
The lucky fans were excited enough to see the movie ahead of time, and then the rapper-actor showed up! He reprises his role as computer genius Tej Parker in the septequel. (Is that a word?)
The movie is going to be bittersweet, given that the late Paul Walker's untimely death occurred as the movie was still in production.
“Our objective was to make Paul Walker proud,” franchise star Vin Diesel posted recently. “After watching ‘Furious 7,’ and his timeless performance… we realized that it was Paul, who has made all of us… so very proud.”
The movie, which filmed largely in Atlanta, is out April 3.
