The Fast and Furious family released the trailer first trailer for The Fate and The Furious in style, renting out Times Square. And from the looks of the trailer, the eighth movie in the series will provide the familiar high-octane entertainment but with a twist.
After the heart-wrenching departure of the late Paul Walker’s character Brian O’Conner in Fast and the Furious 7, it was unclear where the series would go. But from the looks of it, Dom is going to turn his back on the family. But as it also makes clear, the Vin Diesel character is doing so under the control of nefarious outside forces. Charlize Theron joins the cast, and it looks like she will be the main villain who is manipulating Dom.
Aside from Walker, the entire cast from the previous movie returns, including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson reprising his role as Luke Dobbs. The Rock made headlines by calling out one of his fellow actors, widely believed to be Vin Diesel, in an Instagram post while the movie was shooting in August. But it was later reported that the beef was largely a publicity stunt, though it’s still unclear exactly how sincere he was being.
You can watch the much-anticipated trailer below.
No movie franchise knows exactly what its fans want more then The Fast and the Furious, and they’ve really perfected the formula since The Rock joined the cast in the fifth movie. This looks like another winner, and it should be a treat for anyone who like fast cars, badass dudes and crazy stunts- which is just about everybody.
You can catch The Fate of the Furious in theaters on April 14, 2017.
