Furious 7 to have world premiere at secret SXSW screening

The latest installment of the Fast & Furious franchise is set to make its world premiere at the South By Southwest film festival early on Monday morning (16Mar15).

The much-anticipated Furious 7 is set for a 7 April (15) release, but Universal Pictures bosses have announced a surprise secret screening of the film at the Austin, Texas event on at 12:07am on Monday morning.


Speculation of the screening began Sunday (15Mar15), when festival organizers took to Twitter.com and hinted a surprise screening of a "huge" film was going to sell out "fast".


Furious 7 marks the last appearance of the franchise's star Paul Walker, who died in a car crash while shooting the film in 2013.
