At the time of his tragic death last November, Paul Walker had two more films that he'd worked on heading for release. Fast & Furious 7 has, of course, been delayed while Universal reworks the film around the scenes he shot before he passed away. And then there's Brick Mansions, a remake of the film District B13, where Walker stars alongside David Belle and RZA.
Brick Mansions lands in Us cinemas on April 25th (it's yet to get a UK release date), and the first trailer for it has now been released.

Here's the action-packed trailer for "Brick Mansions," which is the last film that Paul Walker completed before his death in November. It's a remake of 2004's "District B13," a French movie starring parkour star and all-around bad-ass David Belle. Belle reprises his role as an ex-criminal trying to go straight despite the brutal environment of Detroit's so-called brick mansions, a walled-off district of the city that the police have basically given up on controlling. (Here his character is called Lino instead of Leïto, though.) Paul Walker takes on the role of the undercover cop who has to infiltrate the brick mansions and take down a ruthless gang armed to the teeth and led by a particularly dangerous guy who's kidnapped Lino's girlfriend.
