Furious 7: A Respectful Goodbye to Paul Walker

By Marissa Wetterau, Sports Editor

The latest installment of the Fast and Furious franchise has been making an impact on the world/entertainment industry and it pays tribute to the late great Paul Walker, who tragically passed away in a fiery car crash on November 30th, 2013 in Valencia, California. Since it’s release, Furious 7 has been speeding through one box-office record after another, and it doesn’t seem that the film is not going to stop anytime soon.

On April 17th, Universal Pictures announced that the seventh film in the franchise had already reached the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box-office…only 17 days after the release of the film. This feat puts Furious 7 among the biggest blockbuster films of the modern era and it makes this adrenaline filled series one of the most successful movie franchises of all time.
