Universal Announces 'Fast & Furious 7' Release Date 'Pitch Perfect 2' and 'Snow White and the Huntsman 2' for 2015

fast-and-furious-6-poster-featWhile at CinemaCon, Universal Pictures announced several upcoming sequels, which is the way of Hollywood now, beginning with a July 11, 2014 release date for Fast & Furious 7, which will be directed by James Wan and, at the very least, star Vin Diesel and Paul Walker with the rest of the cast not yet officially confirmed.

One interesting thing to note is that Dwayne Johnson recently told Collider that if the film shoots this summer, which has been rumored to be the plan, he likely won't be involved:

"[A summer shoot] is not possible for me because I'm shooting Hercules this summer starting in six weeks in Budapest. I haven't heard anything about that and I'm pretty sure I would have gotten a phone call pretty early in the morning if that was the real plan."

There have also been rumors of a spin-off for Johnson's character, but that's obviously something that will be announced down the line should it come to fruition.

Additional rumors swirling the Fast franchise have Jason Statham playing an integral part in the seventh film

Secondly, while no release dates were announced, Universal also announced Pitch Perfect 2 and Snow White and the Huntsman 2 will both eye release dates in 2015.

Now with that out of the way, here's a new poster for the upcoming Fast & Furious 6 featuring Johnson.

    Much to my surprise, Snow White 2 is the only one I'm vaguely interested in out of the three. I actually enjoyed the first one, pretty cool visuals, music and decent execution overall (for the most part). I am curious to know who or what the villain will be.

    I'd guess that the rumours Fast and Furious 6 ends with a cliffhanger would likely be correct if they plan to have 7 out barely a year later. But considering the script is incidental to these movies it probably shouldn't be hard to get ready in time.

    Not interested in Snow White 2, as good production design was about it's primary appeal. Certainly wasn't Stewart's acting or Hemsworth's country hopping accent.

    I haven't seen Pitch Perfect yet but I hear it's OK enough.

    Honestly, the only one I'm interested in seeing is "Pitch Perfect 2", the first was fairly entertaining. I've yet to see a "Fast & Furious" film, and really hated 'Snow White and the Huntsman"

    Fast & Furious 6 is a stad alone film right? It's not a 2 part movie leading to the 7th
