Court lifts order against ‘Furious 7’

After days of unrest among fans and theaters, everyone in Thailand will definitely get to see the last movie of Paul Walker and first inter film of Tony Jaa in theater tomorrow.

The Civil Court yesterday lifted an order prohibiting “Fast & Furious 7” from showing in Thailand which was previously imposed at the request of Sahamongkol Film who is fighting a legal battle over Tony’s contract.

Suwat Apaipak, lawyer for the studio which is demanding compensation from the actor and Universal Pictures, said legal representatives for Tony and Universal successfully challenged the order in Civil Court yesterday

Civil Court agreed to lift its order affecting tomorrow’s premiere while the lawsuit remains unresolved. The movie will rightfully show in theaters tomorrow, Khaosod reported.

Major Cineplex, who previously removed the movie from its schedule, posted on Facebook last night it will show Fast & Furious 7.

“Good news: Fast & Furious 7 will definitely will be on theater on April 1. No censorship. No deleted scenes. Yayyy!”
