It looks like South by Southwest will be springing a surprise on folks at 12:07 a.m. Monday at the Paramount.
“Furious 7,” one of the last movies starring the late Paul Walker and part of the “Fast and Furious” franchise, will have its world premiere at SXSW. Universal confirmed the screening to the Hollywood Reporter after a teasing tweet from SXSW: “Just added for all #SXSW badges: surprise screening of a huge film, 7 mins after midnight tonight @ Paramount. Gotta be FAST to get a seat.”
The film is scheduled for an April 7 release.
