Jason Statham goes baddy in latest installment of racing action flick

There's nothing better than a good car chase scene to set the tone for a high octane car-centric movie. The latest installment in the Fast and Furious franchise -- renamed Furious 7 -- aims to please with some heart-pounding stunts probably imagined with Hot Wheels in Vin Diesel's back yard.

Furious 7 also brings together almost every main character from previous flicks in the series including Vin Diesel, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and -- from Tokyo Drift -- Lucas Black.

Paul Walker, whose life ended in an unfortunate car accident during the filming of Furious 7, makes a posthumous appearance playing the affable Brian O'Conner.

Of course, every action movie needs a baddy and Furious 7 brings one of the biggest names in the action business -- Jason Statham -- to the franchise for the first time.

Furious 7 will roar into theatres April 3rd, 2015.
