UPDATE: Well, that’s really fast! Universal Pictures has unveiled a new one-sheet for Furious 7 ahead of the trailer debut this coming Saturday. Check it out below.

The new poster and trailer announcement for the newly titled Furious 7 have been released. The first vid for the next installment in the Fast & Furious franchise is due next week.

It’s Paul Walker’s last film and it’s directed by James Wan and I have no doubt that this will be the highest April release of all time. Furious 7 finds Vin Diesel’s Dom and the rest of the gang dealing with the fallout from stopping Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) in the last pic.

The seventh Fast & Furious film is scheduled to hit theaters on April 3, 2015 and co-stars Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Ronda Rousey, Tony Jaa, Nathalie Emmanuel, Lucas Black, John Brotherton, Djimon Hounsou, and Kurt Russell.

Hit the jump to check out the official announcement as well as the first poster (via Facebook).

I must say I’m impressed. It reminds me of the old 60’s movie titles like the The Magnificent Seven. Yes, this is a real poster for a real Fast & Furious movie. Please 2015 hurry up.
