Furious 7 Official Trailer Dropped, Mark Zuckerberg Likes It

It’s probably the most wanted movie for all petrol heads out there, but who would’ve thought the Furious 7 official trailer would get founder of Facebook himself, Mark Zuckerberg to comment on the post. Yes, we are writing about the last movie Paul Walker starred in. And yes, the video is crazy.

We love movies with fast cars and we totally like the entire Fast and Furious crew, but we’re not that crazy about it to actually keep hitting the refresh button while looking at the saga's official Facebook account. In other words, yes, we willingly missed the moment the trailer was launched this weekend. We did, however, watched it a couple of hours later and we thought it was great.

Paul Walker's character retires


It has flying cars that use their parachutes to land in the back of a terminator-like RV and chase it. Crazy stunts, out-of-this-world special effects and what not are also included. It’s still not clear what Brian O’Conner’s, Paul Walker’s character, destiny is but the producers already announced the character would be retired from the series following Walker’s tragic death last year, so it's kind of obvious.

As to the little marketing thing Zuckerberg did it’s quite a surprise. “I am so excited for this. Congrats to Vin Diesel, Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Ludacris, Tyrese and everyone else involved!” Facebook’s founder commented yesterday. On the other hand, Furious 7 official trailer was published on Facebook and not somewhere else so there’s obviously some advertorial going on here.

Maybe we should expect Facebook moving towards the movie industry in a way or another. But that is totally another discussion...
