In a few days it will finally arrive: Furious 7, the latest and biggest installment of the Fast & Furious franchise. And while the death of series star Paul Walker does put a damper on some of the excitement, this is still a great time to celebrate one of Hollywood’s most reliable and inventive franchises. In 15 years, Fast & Furious has evolved from a simple B-movie about a couple of street racers to an international crime epic spanning multiple continents and dozens of characters.

When Paul Walker tragically passed away midway through the production of Furious 7, Universal and director James Wan faced a difficult task.

Earlier this week, we were among those in the audience for the first ever Fast and Furious 7 screening at SXSW. It was an emotional affair, to say the least.

An entire audience still processing the grief and sadness of the death of Paul Walker. A few days after that screening, Vin Diesel hosted a similar screening in Los Angeles and introduced the film to the crowd. It was about as sad as you can imagine.

The new Fast and Furious 7 trailer ends as the others have, with Vin Diesel driving a car off a skyscraper and into another while Jason Statham launches grenades at him. It’s an image that will never stop being one of the most ridiculous things we’ve ever seen and hopefully it will play just as well in context. However, this new trailer offers something that the others have not: a little perspective.
