Furious 7 will make its world debut at South by Southwest.

A Universal rep confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that the seventh film in Universal's Fast & Furious franchise will debut Monday at 12:07 a.m. at Austin's Paramount Theatre.

Rumors about the surprise screening began after festival organizers tweeted, "Just added for all #SXSW badges: surprise screening of a huge film, 7 mins after midnight tonight @ Paramount. Gotta be FAST to get a seat."

The spring tentpole marks the last screen appearance of Paul Walker, who was killed in a car accident halfway through filming. 

The film is set for an April 7 release.
