The first official image from Fast & Furious 7 has arrived online, featuring a scowling Vin Diesel looking decidedly grim.

The new image was released via Diesel’s official Facebook page, and also features the returning Paul Walker, looking equally surly in the background there.

Diesel has captioned the image “the unknown road ahead”, which keeps things nice and mysterious. We’d still put money on that road being heavy on fast cars, OTT set-pieces and vengeful baddies, mind…

Diesel and Walker will also be joined by returning stars Dwayne Johnson and Tyrese Gibson, while Jason Statham, Tony Jaa, Djimon Hounsou and possibly Kurt Russell will also be swelling the franchise’s ranks.

Directed by series newcomer James Wan, Fast & Furious 7 will open in the UK on 25 July 2014.
