Furious 7 almost certainly won’t be the last Fast & Furious movie. But at times it feels like a series finale. There are numerous callbacks and homages to the franchise’s entire 15-year history.

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.

Fast and Furious 7 is an emotional movie; there's no getting around that. There were few dry eyes after the screening we attended. But, if it's this emotional for people who are watching the movie, can you imagine what it must be like for the people who made the movie, and knew Paul Walker? We spoke to director James Wan who told us that it's still so hard, he has to get up and leave the theater during the film's ending.

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.

James Wan is one of the most prominent horror film directors working today, having successfully scared our pants off with ‘Insidious’ and ‘The Conjuring.’ So we have a lot of faith in anything with Wan’s name attached to it, like the upcoming film ‘Demonic,’ which was originally scheduled for release this past December. And although it doesn’t yet have a new release date, the first trailer definitely has us intrigued (and a little spooked).
