The Civil Court on Monday lifted its ban on showing the Hollywood action film <i>Fast and Furious 7</i> and the movie will open in Bangkok this week.

Major Cineplex tweeted on its official account that the film starring Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker will motor into cinemas as scheduled on April 1.

The court last week halted all cinema screenings of the film because of a parallel suit - a breach of contract claim filed by Sahamongkol Film against its martial arts star Panom "Tony Jaa" Yeerum, who has a bit part in the film.

Sahamongkol Film International founder Somsak "Sia Jiang" Techaratanaprasert, filed the Civil Court suit through his attorney, Suwat Apaipak.

The court's cancellation of the injunction will make the film available to all cinemas.
