Fast and Furious 6 - Vin Diesel and Paul Walker

The passing of Paul Walker was a tragedy felt by many, but no one felt it more keenly than his family.

After much deliberation, the filmmakers of Fast & Furious 7 announced in January that they would deal with star Paul Walker‘s death by “retiring” his character Brian O’Conner.

Brick Mansions trailer

This second Brick Mansions trailer, for the the Banlieue 13 remake that is also one of the late Paul Walker’s final films, relies on a moody cover of ‘Stand by Me’ to give it a little oomph. Not that the trailer really needs it, as the action (also featuring RZA and original B13 star and parkour pioneer David Belle) looks to be pretty hard-hitting and high-flying.

Luc Besson, who produced the original, scripted this remake, which opens in April. Watch the trailer below. Read More »

Shortly before his death in November, Paul Walker wrapped shooting on Camille Delamarre‘s Brick Mansions. The film is now headed for an April release, and the first trailer has just landed.

A remake of the French thriller Banlieue 13 (known in the U.S. as District B13), Brick Mansions features Walker as an undercover cop who must team with an ex-con (David Belle) to take on a drug kingpin (RZA) in the most dangerous tenement in a dystopian Detroit. It looks a little like what might happen if Brian O’Connor was dropped into Dredd or The Raid. Watch the video after the jump.
