'Fast And Furious 7' First Trailer Appears With Paul Walker Alongside Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham And Michelle Rodriguez

Paul Walker's millions of fans will be moved by the sight of the late star in the first trailer for 'Fast and Furious 7', the film he was working on when he died in a high-speed car crash last November.

The film was in production when he died, and Paul had completed most of his work on the latest instalment of the record-breaking franchise built on speed. Filmmakers used computer-generated effects and the actor's own brothers to finish his role.

"I grew up in the bouncer world, and we lost people while we were bouncing. But the brotherhood in Paul Walker was something completely different," franchise star Vin Diesel said back in August. "We grew up in the business together, and we became famous together, and we represented the biggest franchise together. He was my partner, and it’s a strange thing to ... I've been acting all my life and they don't teach you in acting, how to mourn someone and simultaneously pretend they're in a scene with you."

Judging from the first trailer, fans will be delighted by the finished product. It includes cars parachuting out of an airplane, Jason Statham doing a bunch of stuff, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson breaking a cast on his arm as he prepares to fight and Diesel saying the following sentence: "I don't have friends. I got family."

Regulars Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster are among those returning, and other famous faces joining the cast this time around include Jason Statham, Oscar winner Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey and Kurt Russell. Watch the action-packed trailer above, described by Michelle Rodriguez as "a car-gasm".

'Fast and Furious 7' will be in UK cinemas in April 2015. More pictures below...
