There's A Touching Tribute To Paul Walker In The New Fast & Furious Movie
The new Fast & Furious movie contains a touching tribute to the late Paul Walker.
Just a little word of warning, if you're a super-fan and are eagerly awaiting the release of the new movie, then there's spoilers here.
SPOILERS! OK, so don't say I didn't warn you.
In the newest instalment of the movie franchise Dominic Toretto (played by Vin Diesel) and ex-girlfriend Elena (Elsa Pataky) discover they are going to have a son. During the final scenes of the film he reveals that he has given the little boy the name Brian - after his pal Brian O'Conner, who was played by Paul.
Tugging at the ol' heart strings during the end of the movie Dom says: "I want to introduce you to the most important person in my universe, and I will never give up on him.
"You've heard me say that you never turn your back on family. And I want to thank you all for never turning your back on me.

"You want to meet him? Alright. Everyone, meet Brian."
This film, called the Fate of the Furious, is the first be shot entirely without Paul, who died in 2013 aged 40. He appeared posthumously in the seventh film, which was released in 2015.
Speaking ahead of the film's release later this week, Vin paid his respect to the late actor saying that if it hadn't been for 'Pablo', as he calls him, there wouldn't have been a Fast & Furious franchise.
He said: "There wasn't a second we made this movie, not a minute - you can ask Gary [the film's director] - not a day that went by that we weren't thinking about our brother Pablo, how to bring him into the movie, how to represent him, and how to make something that he would be proud of.
"Pablo, I hope you are proud tonight."
Michelle Rodriguez told E!News that filming without Paul wasn't easy. She said: "It was hard to move on without him. He is the essence of why we were excited to come on-board because he kept that childhood excitement about that realm and following through in what we were doing. He's a big part of the family, but at the end of the day, we have a big responsibility, and it's a global one so we gotta keep on trucking."
The film franchise has spawned eight sequels and has been running since 2001.
