Fast and Furious 7 Tribute to Paul Walker

Everyone you know is going to be at Furious 7 (pundits are predicting that the box office will go north of $100 million). Here's the shocker: The film is so good, Vin Diesel's comments that it could win Oscars might not be delusional. 

There are tons of reasons to see the movie, but you already know the biggest one: Go for Paul Walker. It's clear the cast and crew want the film to be a memorial to the late actor, and it is, with deeply emotional scenes that may produce a tear or two. But the better news is that it's also a stunningly entertaining action movie.

 
SPOILER: The music video below is played at the end of the movie as a tribute to Paul Walker.
 
Mike Knobloch, the President of Film Music and Publishing at Universal Pictures, spoke to Huffington Post and said that the ending to the movie required a very delicate balance.
 
"Coming off of this incredible two hours of the most sensational action-packed stuff you’ve ever seen in a movie, you have a sequence that needs to be balanced. It has to be appropriately touching and emotional, but you still want people to get out of their seats and leave the theater feeling good.
 
You don’t want the sequence to cancel out the movie they’ve seen, and you certainly don’t want people to walk out feeling sad or that they just attended somebody’s funeral. So getting the music right for the sequence was a key part of that. To have a song that’s earnest and sincere and could underscore a celebration of Paul’s life. To be an anthem for that. We worked really hard to dial that in."
