'Fast & Furious 7' gets new release date

But before you freak out, this is good news: "Fast & Furious 7" is coming out even faster.

Instead of arriving on April 10, 2015, the seventh installment of the "Fast" franchise will now bow on April 3, Variety reports.

The speculation is that Universal moved the release date up a week to allow more time for an international run.

"Fast 7" was initially supposed to open during 2014's summer season, but that changed after the death of franchise star Paul Walker last fall. The theory is that Universal's planning to "retire" Walker's character, Brian O'Conner - not kill him off.
