    It is the first official glimpse of footage from the seventh film in the Fast & Furious franchise since the death of star Paul Walker on Nov. 30, 2013, halfway through the movie's production.

    The trailer opens with shots of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson)…

    …Tej Parker (Ludacris), and, of course, Brian O'Conner (Walker).

    It then segues into an extended action sequence involving parachuting in cars out of a cargo plane…

    …assaulting a heavily fortified bus…

    …and throwing Brian inside the bus from the hood of a moving vehicle…

    …all to rescue a mysterious woman (Game of Thrones' Nathalie Emmanuel) held inside the bus.

    That's a lot of trouble to go to for a brand new character to the franchise.

    Of course, being a Fast & Furious movie, the bus has to careen to the edge of a cliff, forcing Brian to climb out of it…

    …scamper along the side as it begins to fall over the edge…

    …and leap onto the back of Letty's car.

    Because Fast & Furious.

    The rest of the trailer sets up the basics of the movie's story, which involves Ian Shaw (Jason Statham) seeking revenge for the death of his younger brother, Owen (Luke Evans), the bad guy from Fast & Furious 6.

    Kurt Russell (pictured, right) is also involved, though in what capacity is unclear.

    There are also glamorous locations and outfits…

    …drag races…

    …Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) doing something insane…

    …and what appears to be a climactic slow-motion fight between Dom and Shaw.

    The trailer also directly (and tastefully) evokes Walker's death. The first time is when Dom says "one last ride" the camera cuts to Brian.

    And the second is when Dom says (presumably to Russell's character off-camera) that he doesn't have friends, he has family — and the trailer ends with a close-up of Walker.
