‘The Fate Of The Furious’ Trailer: Watch First ‘Fast 8’ Teaser!
The first trailer for the eighth Fast and Furious movie, officially titled The Fate of the Furious, was released Sunday. Watch the action-packed preview below!
The new sequel, originally known as Fast 8, sees the return of cast members Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell. New additions to the franchise include Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren and Scott Eastwood. Meanwhile, F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton, The Italian Job) sits in the director’s chair for this latest installment in the smash hit film series. Not counting the spinoff Tokyo Drift, this will mark the first sequel without the late Paul Walker. The actor and his character, however, were given a fitting tribute and farewell in 2015’s Furious 7.
The plot this time around sees Dom (Diesel) and the rest of his team racing against the clock to stop an anarchist (Theron) from bringing chaos to the world. In order to do so, they’ll have to globetrot from the shores of Cuba to the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea. Since the release of the first film back in 2001, the Fast and Furious franchise has proven to be one of the most enduring and popular film franchises of all time, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. The Fate of the Furious races into theaters on April 14. Watch the first trailer for the sequel below!
