Upon the announcement, United International Pictures Malaysia’s Managing Director Nicholas Yong said:

While we realise that the fan base for the Fast & Furious franchise is extremely strong in this country, we are just bowled over by the outstanding results. Turbo-boosted by the excellent word-of-mouth, local audiences really responded to the theme of family-ties, humour and the great over-the-top action. The film being directed by Malaysian-born director, James Wan (who did a fabulous job on “The Conjuring”), and the fact that this is Paul Walker’s last film, were added must-see elements for local movie-goers.

“Furious 7” is currently showing in cinemas nationwide in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
