After a brief break for the holidays, Movie Power Rankings is back, and more powerful than ever. This week, “Fast & Furious 7” is back on top after Universal, director James Wan and writer Chris Morgan have revealed that they’ve figured out a way to feature the late Paul Walker in the seventh installment. His character of Brian O’Conner will effectively be retired from the gang in “Fast 7,” but Vin Diesel and the others will be able to continue the lucrative franchise. Let’s hope that Walker is given an appropriate and memorable send-off in the film.
