    Fast and Furious 7 breaks box office records

    Fast and Furious 7

    Fast and Furious 7 has become the quickest film in history to generate over $1 billion in revenue.

    The latest instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise has broken box office records, becoming the quickest film ever to generate $1 billion. In the less than three weeks since Fast and Furious 7 hit cinemas globally, the movie has generated around $1.15 billion.

    Furious 7 includes the late Paul Walker’s final on-screen appearance and filming for the movie wasn’t not completed before his untimely death. Following the accident, the script for Furious 7 had to be rewritten, and Paul Walker’s brother Cody was used for some scenes as well as a CGI version of Paul.

    Despite losing the main character, it’s believed there will be an eighth instalment in the Fast and Furious franchise. Co-star Vin Diesel who was very close with Paul Walker has alluded to the fact that there will be more Fast and Furious films. He said “seven was for Paul, eight is from Paul.”

    Drive the Fast and Furious 7 cars in Forza Horizon (VIDEO)

    Fast and Furious 7

    The creators of XBOX One’s Forza Horizon 2 car game have teamed up with the Fast and Furious 7 guys to bring the movie cars to your living room. 

    You can now drive your favourite cars from the new Fast and Furious 7 movie on XBOX One’s Forza Horizon 2. Forza Horizon is basically an RPG for car guys (and gals) where you drive around a massive map looking for other gamers to race against, or you can do arcade style mission races. It’s a lot less structured than the usual Forza games that generally stick to set race tracks and car modifications are limited.

    There’s loads of cars to choose from as well with plenty of scope for modification. And Turn 10 studios is constantly releasing new car packs that you can purchase to broaden the game even further. The latest car pack has been inspired by the new Fast and Furious 7 movie and gives gamers the chance to drive their favourite cars from the movie. The pack includes Dom’s ballistic supercharged Dodge Charger, Brian’s Toyota Supra, the Plymouth Cuda and Road Runner, 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger, Maserati Ghibli and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The only car missing is the Fast and Furious 7 Subaru WRX STI, though the standard car is already part of the game.

    The Fast and Furious 7 downloadable content will cost $5, which is the same price as every other Forza Horizon 2 car pack, but this one includes three more cars than usual. The Forza Horizon 2 Fast and Furious 7 car pack is available to download now and you can check out the cars in action in the video below.

    Fast and Furious 7 Paul Walker tribute (VIDEO)

    Paul Walker Fast and Furious

    The emotional ending to Fast and Furious 7 has got Paul Walker fans in tears with a touching tribute.

    Don’t worry, we’re not here to spoil the ending to Fast and Furious 7. The video below isn’t the actual final scene of the new Fast and Furious 7 movie, it’s the music video that accompanies the “See You Again” Wiz Khalifa soundtrack, itself a very touching and evocative tribute video to the late Paul Walker.

    You can check out the music video below. But I strongly suggest you go see the movie in the cinemas to see the incredible final scene, it genuinely is a tear-jerker.

    I watched my first Fast and Furious movie when I was about eight years old. I already liked cars, but after seeing Paul Walker’s character Brian ‘blow the welds on his intake’ it started to become an obsession. He was a massive influence for me growing up, to the point where my career is now writing about and driving cars, and now I really couldn’t picture myself doing anything else. Even though I knew Paul’s character Brian was fictional I somewhat idolised him as a young boy – he was just a slick cool dude with morality and nobility who loved Skylines.

    I’m sure there are thousands of others out there who have been influenced by Paul Walker’s role in the Fast and Furious franchise. And to those people, he will forever be remembered as a brother.

    RIP Paul.

    The best Paul Walker Fast and Furious cars (VIDEO)

    Motoring website Edmunds counts down the top ten greatest Fast and Furious cars driven by Paul Walker. 

    The Fast and Furious movie franchise has given us some of the greatest and most iconic movie cars of all time since its inception in the year 2000. These movies, the early ones in particular, inspired a generation to start modifying their cars and while not always in good taste it brought modified car culture to the masses.

    While Vin Diesel’s character Dom and his legendary Dodge Charger is like the series’ unicorn character – the one that appears in some state or another in every movie – Paul Walker’s character Brian has always driven some truly awesome machines.

    Where Diesel’s character is all about old muscle cars and superchargers, Walker’s has a love affair with Japanese turbocharged pocket rockets. The only times he didn’t drive a Jap tuner car is 2 Fast 2 Furious where he swaps his Mitsubishi Evo 7 for a Yenko Camaro for the big jump onto the boat stunt. He also drove a Dodge Charger cop car and a few others.

    Paul Walker’s character Brian always had a connection with the Nissan Skyline, which started in 2 fast 2 Furious where his silver R34 GT-R only appears for a few minutes, enough though to cement it in petrol head folklore.

    So, which Paul Walker car did Edmunds pick as the greatest of all? Check out the video below.

    Behind the scenes on that Fast and Furious 7 plane drop scene (VIDEO)

    Plane drop scene

    The creators of Furious 7 have launched a new video that goes behind the scenes of that epic plane drop scene, and it’s awesome. 

    If you haven’t already seen the extended trailer for Furious 7 which shows the plane drop scene go and watch it here, then come back. OK, you’re back, now you can check out how that scene was filmed at 12,000 feet above the ground in a new video launched by the creators of the seventh Fast and Furious movie. And it is awesome. There are no computer generated images (CGI) at all, they literally got the cars they needed, gave them parachutes and launched them out the back of an aircraft carrier along with a group of very brave camera men.

    So those few seconds where you see under the Dodge Challenger as it plummets towards the earth were filmed by a bloke sitting under the car. It’s extremely cool.

    The Fast and Furious 7 movie hits cinemas in under a months time on April 3, starring Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, The Rock, Jason Stratham and the late Paul Walker.
