Michelle Rodriguez Pictures How Paul Walker Would Have Reacted To 'Furious 7' Trailer; Jordana Brewster Says Stunts In The Film Were 'So Insane'

The first trailer for "Furious 7" will premiere Saturday afternoon, Nov. 1, at a special launch event at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. And though late actor Paul Walker would not be able to see the result of  the hard work of everyone involved in the film, Michelle Rodriguez thinks that her co-star would be happy not only with the trailer but with how the whole movie turns out.

When asked by E! News what Walker would have said about the film's long-awaited trailer, Rodriguez, 36, gave a funny yet touching impression of her co-star.

"He would gaze with his beautiful blue eyes and that wonderful, amazing, childlike smile that he would get whenever he'd have, like, a cargasm," Rodriguez, who plays Letty Ortiz on the film series, said on the red carpet at amFAR L.A. Inspiration Gala Wednesday, Oct. 29. "[He] would just go from ear to ear, and he'd be like, 'Finally, it's in the f--king can!'"

"'Cause that's his whole thing, the entire franchise, after every single one," the "Avatar" star added, before miming a Walker shrug. "'I just don't think it's in the can yet.' That was the ongoing thing."

Rodriguez's co-star Jordana Brewster, who also reprises her role as Mia in the seventh installment in the "Fast & Furious" franchise, said that she finds the trailer "amazing."

"I saw the movie trailer and it looks amazing," the 34-year-old actress told E! News Tuesday, Oct. 28, at the Dsquared2 party in Hollywood. "It's so cool to me that each one sort of out does the other."

When asked what will surprise fans most about the James Wan-directed film, the "Dallas" star responded: "I think just the fact that they can outdo the last one, because the stunts were so insane. But I think people are already commenting because every day seven seconds [of the trailer] are released. People are like 'Did I really see a car jump out of a plane?' I mean it's crazy."

Walker died in a single-car accident in November 2013 alongside friend Roger Rodas. Four months after his death, producers of "Furious 7" reportedly hired actors with bodies very similar to the actor's physique to double for him.

"They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul's physique and they will be used for movement and as a base," a source close to production told New York Daily News. "Paul's face and voice will be used on top using CGI."

In April, it was announced that Walker's brothers, Caleb and Cody, will be used as stand-ins, Deadline reported.

"Furious 7" will hit theaters on April 3, 2015.
