First Official Fast & Furious 7 Pic Online

Dom and Brian do the quarter-mile-at-a-time stare

With the cast and crew of Fast & Furious 7 already busy zipping around California locales in production on the film, duties in releasing the first sort-of official image in the marketing campaign have fallen to a familiar source: Vin Diesel’s Facebook page. Take a look at the image below.

Yes, the prolific poster – who almost single-handedly got the word out about Riddick – is back on digital duty, throwing up an image of himself and co-star Paul Walker as Dominic Toretto and Brian O’Connor looking pensive at a lake. We’re going to go ahead and assume it’s not because the pair pause in their high-octane behaviour to feed some ducks, although there are always quieter, emotional scenes between the crew peppered between shots of them jumping from cars, crashing tanks and racing down the longest runway you’ve ever seen so maybe they will.

Fast & Furious 7 finds the usual team contemplating life as free men and women, albeit ones with targets on their backs after they took out Luke Evans’ Owen Shaw in the sixth film. They have his brother Ian (Jason Statham) hunting them down.

Regulars like Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Dwayne Johnson and Jordana Brewster are back, joined by new recruits including Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey and – assuming he’s definitely made a deal – Kurt Russell. With James Wan shepherding the vehicular mayhem, it’s set to arrive on July 25, 2014.
