Furious 7’s Paul Walker Tribute Will Make You Cry
Without giving too much away, the final scene of the new film ‘Furious 7’, which earned a record $146 million over the weekend, featured a touching tribute to Paul Walker in a short video created by his on-screen buddies re-living his journey. And it’s real tearjerker.
In completing the film, producers originally sought to retire Walker’s character, Brian, but they felt that killing him off might appear exploitative, so instead, they decided to have Brian retire from his dangerous, high-octane lifestyle out of a sense of responsibility to his growing family with girlfriend, who is pregnant with their second child.
To finish Walker’s scenes, the creators of the movie used computer-generated images, body doubles, and even the actor’s brothers.
