Hold on to your couches: the Sunday night's blockbuster, Furious 7, is set to take viewers from 0 to 100 in less than 5 seconds - with Vin Diesel in the driver’s seat. Scheduled at 20:05 on M-Net channel 101 and on M-Net Movies Premiere channel 103 at 20:30 this Sunday 29 May, the all-star cast who now call themselves family, will deliver on what they know best: adrenaline-pumping, heart-thumping, engine-revving action.

When the first Fast and Furious film hit screens fifteen years ago, no one could have foreseen that the future of this tale about a team of street racers would transform into one of the most popular and enduring movie franchises of all time.

Making things even more exciting is the fact that M-Net Movies' brand ambassador Lalla Hirayama, had the opportunity to interview the awesome cast of this epic movie and got a rare, behind-the-scenes glimpse into the Fast and Furious world . This minisode of Lalla Land will be screened on M-Net Movies Premiere just before Furious 7 on Sunday night. If you miss it, be sure to catch it again across any of M-Net Movies’ nine channels, or watch it on mnet.tv/lallaland.

Furious 7 is also a special film for one particular reason: in November 2013, while production of Furious 7 was underway, tragedy struck the cast and crew when actor Paul Walker was killed in a car accident. In honour of their fellow cast member and friend, producers of the film decided to complete the movie working with unused footage and new technology to give Walker and his best-known character a poignant, cinematic send-off.  

Vin Diesel (as Dominic Toretto) leads the returning cast of Furious 7, whose story follows on from the previous film - only this time Dom and the rest of the crew can’t return to their normal lives. Instead, they’re forced to go up against an enemy who’s out for revenge - a dangerous foe who already managed to get to one of their own, and wants nothing more than to take down the family of speedsters, no matter who gets in the way.

The cast includes: Paul Walker (as Brian), Jason Statham (as Shaw), Michelle Rodriguez (as Letty) , Jordana Brewster (as Mia), Tyrese Gibson (as Roman), Ludacris (as Tej) and Dwayne Johnson (as Hobbs).

James Wan directs the hugely successful series and Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel return as producers.
