Distributed by Universal Pictures, Fast & Furious has earned over $3.0 billion dollars world wide as of April 2015.
The Fast and the Furious is an American franchise that has gained great notoriety since its debut in 2001. The Fast and the Furious, also known as Fast & Furious, is a series of action films that focus on illegal car races, heists and other crimes.
After the tragic death of Paul Walker due to a high-speed car crash in 2013, the franchise would never be the same. Seeing the recent release of Furious 7, still playing in theatres, was a great way to ‘retire’ Brian O’Connor from the series without actually killing the character. Writer Chris Morgan and Director James Wan changed the ending of the film so the franchise could continue.
Not to spoil the ending completely for you, but it was a great way to say ‘see you later’ to the late Paul Walker. Tears flowed down the faces of loving fans and were great closure for the millions who have loved Fast & Furious since day one.
