Paul Walker’s horrific and fatal car crash on Nov. 30, 2013, left fans in shock. But leave it to the 40-year-old star to leave behind not only a cinematic legacy, but also a new movie for his fans to enjoy despite his tragic departure.
One of Paul Walker’s final movies, “Brick Mansions,” is hitting theaters on April 25. Directed by Camille Delamarre, the flick follows an undercover cop whose job is to take down a ruthless crime lord. Sounds familiar, eh? For years Walker thrived as an undercover cop in “The Fast and the Furious” franchise, taking down the bad guys who just happened to be pretty ferocious drivers. But in “Brick Mansions,” Walker traded in his Nissan Skyline for a pair of fancy feet.
In the trailer for “Brick Mansions,” which is based on the French film “District B13,” viewers can see a slew of outrageous stunts, including flips over crashing cars and “Matrix”-like dips under swinging axes. That said, this movie will have you on the edge of your seat throughout as you watch Walker’s character try to get a neutron bomb away from a deadly gang.
The adventure film will feature explosions to your heart’s content and has a pretty solid cast of actors, including some from the original 2004 film. Robert Maillet (Yeti), RZA (Tremaine), Carlo Rota (George the Greek), David Belle (Lino), and Bruce Ramsay (Mayor) will all be making your palms sweat throughout the film with their jaw-dropping parkour skills. So, perhaps this isn’t the best movie to take your crush on. You know, unless they don’t mind a soaking wet hand.
But if you’re feeling on the adventurous side, you may want to start planning your night out with your significant other now ... considering we have a hunch that many theaters across the country will be sold out on the night of “Brick Mansions” April 25 premiere. Honestly, we’d do anything just to see Walker’s baby blues again and we're sure the thousands who Twitter-wept over Walker's untimely death will want to, as well.
