Paul Walker is seen racing a car in the trailer for his new film Brick Mansions.

The release of the teaser has caused some surprise in light of the actor's death in November 2013 in a car accident.

The Fast and the Furious star died following a car crash in Santa Clarita, California, when the Porsche Carrera GT driven by Walker's friend Roger Rodas, careered into a tree and caught fire. He was 40-years-old.

The teaser for the film was shown on Entertainment Tonight and portrays Walker racing a Mustang.

In the film, the actor plays an undercover cop named Damien, who finds himself running with gangsters in an effort to take them down.

Set in Detroit, the action revolves around a place called Brick Mansions, described as "so dangerous we've built a wall around it."'

The film also stars Kalinka Petrie, RZA, Catalina Denis and Ayisha Issa.

The action crime drama, a remake of the 2004 French film District B13, was filmed in the spring of 2013 and will be released on April 25.
