The event was bittersweet for those in attendance as they lost one of the films stars, Paul Walker, halfway through filming due to a car accident in the Los Angeles area. Walker’s brothers stepped in to double for the star in order for filmmakers to be able to finish the film. While all of the stars were proud of the film and happy to be meeting with fans and press, there was a notable sadness hanging over the evening.
