After a brief teaser Friday, the first official trailer for the next "Fast and Furious" movie is here and it is unsurprisingly action packed!
Universal Pictures has been teasing fans all week leading up to the release of this first trailer. Earlier in the week, they released a short video featurette that showed choice bits of footage from behind-the-scenes of this movie, as well as clips from the entire series leading up to it. Then, they released a very brief trailer tease just a couple of days ago and finally, today, we got the full trailer for The Fate of the Furious. In case all of the action is a bit too distracting to pick on any actual story elements, here is the official synopsis for Fast and Furious 8.
"Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game, and the rest of the crew has been exonerated, the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before.
From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage…and to bring home the man who made them a family."
Dropping a short two years after the release of Furious 7, which came out in 2015, reached $1 billion worldwide in the box office and is the sixth-biggest global title of all time, Fast 8 The Fate of the Furious is coming 'round off what appeared to be some legit beef between The Rock and Vin Diesel. Joining the rowdy crew (which includes Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris, among others) is Charlize Theron, who's getting her villain on. The whole shebang will be helmed by F. Gary Gray, of Friday, Straight Outta Compton, and The Italian Job fame.
F8 looks like it will be as action-packed and over-the-top as the most recent ones in the franchise. "The Fate of the Furious" will be in theaters April 14, 2017.
