Fast 8 is now The Fate of the Furious, brilliantly, and the first full trailer gives us our first good look at what the Fast and Furious series post-pual Walker existence is going to look like.
There is also a showdown involving snowmobiles and tanks on ice, which explains the equally great Japanese title Wild Speed: Ice Break.
The first Fate of the Furious poster was discovered earlier today, too playing up the notion that all is not well between The Rock and Vin Diesel. From the trailer, it looks like Diesel’s Dom has turned his back on his crew.
It seems likely that Dom and Hobbs will be reprising their showdown from Fast Five, then which remains the best movie in the series that isn’t spin-off set in Tokyo.
It seems equally likely that street racer Dom will inexplicably continue to hold his own against a legendary DSS agent eight times his size. But we shall see.
The Fate of the Furious also sees Charlize Theron make her series debut as the villainous Cipher, while returning cast members include Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Lucas Black, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Elsa Pataky, and Nathalie Emmanuel. The movie is directed by F. Gary and opens April 14th.
Usually when a franchise hits its eighth installment, the Thrills have withered and star power begins to fade. But not in the case of the Fast and Furious series.
The latest installment, called The Fate of the Furious, dropped its trailer on Sunday, and it feature Oscar winner Charlize Theron in what appears to be the role of the newest evil genius to challenge “the family”.
The Trailer suffers from the Hollywood’s new habit of showing us almost the entire film in a few minutes, but hardcore fans will welcome this cinematic tense until the film theatres on April 14,2017.
