Meadow Walker posted a moving photo on Instagram on Sunday.
Paul Walker’s daughter has paid tribute to her late father on Father’s Day by posting an old family photograph on social media.
Meadow Walker, now 16, picked out a beautiful picture from the family album of the Fast and Furious actor kissing her on the cheek when she was a baby, while the two of them are sharing a cuddle.
The 'Dukes of Hazzard' legend was previously linked with the tragic Paul Walker on a separate project years ago, and revealed that he would be interested in playing a part in the popular franchise.
John Schneider, the former star of TV’s ‘Dukes of Hazzard’, has expressed a desire to be a part of the Fast & Furious franchise. Having previously been linked with a car racing film project with the late actor Paul Walker, he has said he would be “very interested” in joining the Furious cast.
The franchise’s ever-present star Vin Diesel confirmed the existence of plans for an eighth movie last week, with a release pencilled in for April 2017. Schneider, who played Bo Duke in the popular TV series, admitted a role for him “would make sense because ‘Dukes…’ really paved the way for films like Fast & Furious. I'd be very interested in joining the cast.”

"Furious 7" is doing laps around every other movie at the box office.
Guess who’s at the top of the box office this week? That was a rhetorical question, because obviously it was Furious 7. Again. The conclusion (maybe) of the now iconic action franchise is already past the billion mark and has earned $29 million domestically this past weekend, according to USA Today’s estimates.
This weekend, Furious 7 broke records.

Having become a tremendous smash-hit, the 'Fast & Furious' franchise has no plans of stopping. But where will it go without Paul Walker?
As the seventh 'Fast & Furious' movie continues to dominate the global box office, rumours are swirling about where the franchise will go from here. Originally conceived as the first in a trilogy, 'Furious 7' was rewritten as a send-off for the late actor Paul Walker and ends on a definitive final note. So where to from here?
"We think there's at least three more," says Donna Langley, head of the film's studio, Universal. "Paul is, and always will be, an integral part of the story. But there are many other great characters, and it's also an opportunity to introduce new characters."

The movie is a runaway success in the box offices domestically and internationally, and now it can add the Billboard charts as another conquest.
In addition its reign at the top of the American box offices, Furious 7 has doubled its domination after its soundtrack album roared to Number One in the Billboard 200. The multi-artist compilation climbed a place to the top spot in the week ending April 12th, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The Furious 7 soundtrack has benefitted from the massive single ‘See You Again’ by Wiz Khalifa, which is also sitting atop the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart this week. The track, a tribute to the movie’s late star Paul Walker, plays over the movie’s end credits.
The song sold 464,000 individual downloads last week, and that translates into 58,000 track equivalent album sales for the soundtrack, over 50% of its 111,000 sales total.

'Fast & Furious 7' dominated the competition at the box-office.
In the end, it wasn't even a contest. Fast and Furious 7 dominated the box office for the second weekend in a row, picking up a cool $60.6 million and driving its U.S total to $252.5 million.

"People feel like they're living through the summer movie season right now even though it's not summer," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. "It's the essence of a popcorn movie."

‘The Longest Ride’ provide no match for the seventh ‘Fast and the Furious’ instalment.
Furious 7 is still sitting on top of the US box office, after taking $60.6 million in its second weekend. The action packed sequel opened last weekend to a record-breaking $147.2 million and has fallen just 59% in week two.
Furious 7 looks set to become the biggest of the Fast and the Furious series
The film is now well on the road to become the highest-grossing film in the history of the Fast and Furious franchise. The seventh instalment stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and also deals with the death of star Paul Walker, who was killed in a car accident in 2013 before the film was completed.
Vin Diesel has poured his love for Paul Walker into Furious 7
Vin Diesel wants you to know that he hasn’t stopped missing co-star and friend Paul Walker. This time, the Furious 7 actor talked to the Italian news outlet Fanpage. The conversation was pretty light, with Vin joking about his limited singing ability, but things got a little emotional when he sang See You Again from the Furious 7 soundtrack.
At the end of the franchise, Diesel struggled to pull through.
So naturally, after that, the conversation turned to the topic of filming after Walker’s death in November of 2013.

Despite being the seventh addition in the franchise, 'Furious 7' opened to the highest box-office for the first week in the franchise.
In less than a week, the seventh film in the 'Fast & Furious' franchise has passed $500 million at the global box office, and doesn't look likely to slow down until the end of the month, when 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' arrives. 'Furious 7' is poised to not only maintain its dominance on box office charts, but the movie is certain to become 2015's biggest hit next weekend when it passes the global total earned by 'Fifty Shades of Grey' ($566 million). And it hasn't opened yet in major markets like China, Russia or Japan.
Dwayne Johnson in 'Furious 7'
In North America, 'Furious 7' had the fourth best opening of all time, after two 'Harry Potter films' and 'The Avengers'. In the UK, 'Furious 7' opened bigger than any 2014 release, and has already outgrossed the lifetime UK totals of all previous films in the franchise.

Projections had forecast that 'Furious 7' would enjoy a nine-figure opening weekend in America, but its success across the globe has been astonishing.
As widely predicted, Furious 7 romped to victory at American box offices this weekend, but what wasn’t expected was the scale of its success internationally. Incredibly, the film has debuted at number one in every single territory in which it’s been released thus far.
The Universal flick, starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and the late Paul Walker, has taken a staggering $240.4 million from international box offices. Added to the receipts from the American domestic audience, that makes a total of $384 million in ticket sales since the release date of April 3rd, CNN Money reports.

The movie could be headed for a $150+ million weekend.
The Fast & Furious franchise is going out with a bang. Or, if we’re talking sounds, it’s probably more of a ka-ching. Since its release on Thursday, Furious 7 has already recorded the highest opening of 2015. On Friday, the flick made a spectacular $67.3 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
Furious 7 gave Paul Walker a final tribute.
The numbers put it on track to close the weekend past the $150 million mark. Of course, we won’t know until Monday morning. According to BOM’s stats, this puts the flick in tenth place for all-time biggest opening, on par with The Hunger Games and The Dark Knight. It's up 74 percent on Fast & Furious 6, which was the previous best debut in the 14-year-old franchise. In a single day, Furious 7 has already earned more than the third instalment in the franchise (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift) grossed during its entire run.

For their seventh adventure, the Fast & Furious cast and crew continue to outdo themselves with mind-boggling stunt driving and outrageous action mayhem, this time infusing everything with emotion as a way of honouring late actor Paul Walker. The rip-roaring pace and more internalised drama combine effectively to create a riotous thrill ride that might actually bring a lump to the throat. Even if it's all utterly preposterous, it's solidly entertaining.
Things pick up right where Part 6 left off, with former black-ops killer Deckerd Shaw (Jason Statham, who else?) determined to avenge his fallen brother. As he tracks them down, Dominic and Brian (Vin Diesel and Paul Walker) have reassembled their team (Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges) to take a job with shady government agent Mr Nobody (Kurt Russell). Their target is the even shadier villain Jakanda (Djimon Hounsou), who has kidnapped a genius hacker (Nathalie Emmanuel) to get his hands on her all-seeing gadget. But Shaw is on their trail as they track Jakanda to the mountains of Azerbaijan, and he interrupts their mission there as well as in the deserts of Abu Dhabi and the streets of downtown Los Angeles.
The double-edged premise offers all kinds of opportunity for plot twists, but of course the main point of these movies is to create increasingly insane set-pieces. This time, the film opens with Brian explaining to his young son that cars can't fly, after which director James Wan proves otherwise, flinging our heroes' hot rods into the sky from airplanes, tower blocks and cliff tops. Amazingly, they seem able to steer even in mid-air! But never mind, it looks so painfully cool that there's little do do but sit back and enjoy the chaos, knowing that even though a flashy vehicle is destroyed every minute, there's a newer, more awesome car coming in the next scene.

Under the stewardship of James Wan, 'Furious 7' flies.
We were really hoping Furious 7 wasn't going to be terrible. Like, really terrible. The global franchise was always in good hands with James Wan at the helm and the casting was pretty good - so any possibility of doing the late Paul Walker a disservice was actually pretty slim.

The action star was killed in a high speed car crash on November 13, with filming only half completed. It led to delays on the movie for script re-writes and his brothers Caleb and Cody were used as stand-ins to complete the remainder of his scenes.

Industry insiders are predicting that 'Furious 7' will enjoy an opening week of more than $100 million, which would be a record.
With still more than a week to go until it makes its official U.S. premiere, movie industry insiders are predicting a record-breaking first week of box office sales for Furious 7, according to Variety.
Tracking services and analysts are suggesting that the Universal picture, the seventh instalment of the wildly successful franchise The Fast & The Furious, will make as much as $115 million in its debut week. If that happens, it will set a new record for an opening week during April, topping the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier which made $95 million last year.

Many attendees of the roast, including Walker's friend and co-star Ludacris, were deeply offended by the off-colour jokes.
Most of the jokes at the March 14th taping went down very well, including many brutal ones at Bieber’s expense, but a spokeperson for Comedy Central has stated to the Hollywood Reporter that the remarks about the Fast & Furious actor will be cut during the edit before its March 30th broadcast.

Cast member Tyrese Gibson and producer Neal Moritz led the tributes to the late actor, who died in November 2013 in a car crash.
Tyrese Gibson and various cast and crew members of Furious 7 paid tribute to the late actor Paul Walker at a surprise premiere screening of the movie. The seventh instalment of the massively successful Universal franchise was a late addition to the bill at SXSW festival.
Gibson (who plays Roman Pearce in the films) spoke during an introduction before the screening and said “We don’t look at y’all as fans of the movie. Most of you grew up with us. The reason we kept the movie going is on behalf of our brother Paul Walker.”

The first screening of Paul Walker's last film was premiered at Texas festival, South By Southwest

The sins of London have followed them home. After throwing Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) out of a cargo plane, his brother, Ian Shaw (Jason Statham), is out for revenge.

This investigation will see the team dropping their cars out of planes and driving between buildings to prove that they are the Furious 7.

One year on, Walker's family and friends still find it hard to deal with the loss.
It’s been a year since the death of Paul Walker. With all the bad stuff that happened in 2014, the actor’s death last winter sort of fell behind in newsworthiness, but he is constantly in the thoughts and prayers of his family – both his real one and his onscreen one.
A year later, life without the beloved son, father and friend hasn't gotten any easier.
There will be another three movies in the 'Fast & Furious' franchise. Universal Studios was optimistic about the future of the franchise despite rumours to the contrary.
