It’s been a while since we’ve reported anything on Fast 8, which now officially goes by The Fast Of The Furious. The eighth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise shows no signs of slowing down, even with the loss of the late Paul Walker. The franchise that has since become a global phenomenon, now with a brand new title to boot, and has announced that the first trailer for the sequel will hit the internet this Sunday.
Check out the tease here below.
Teases for trailers aren’t out of the ordinary, in fact, it’s becoming more commonplace. For Fate of the Furious we see that Dom (Vin Diesel) and his crew still like to visit their exotic locations. But since the U.S. has lifted the embargo on Cuba, director F. Gary Gray shot the film there. It’s one of the first major blockbusters to shoot since U.S. and Cuba relations thawed. Speaking of thawed, the film will also see Dom and his crew take their racing and heist skills to the frozen tundras of Iceland.
There really isn’t much else to say about this teaser, other than there was a quick shot of Charlize Theron, with a full set of hair this time. But her character will tempt Dom to return to a world of crime, a world that Dom vowed to leave behind.
As for the trailer release, fans can check into Facebook on Sunday, December 11, for the LIVE trailer event starting at 4:40PM PT/7:40PM ET.
Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky, and Kurt Russell all return to reprise their respective roles. In addition to Theron, the series welcomes newcomers Scott Eastwood and Oscar® winner Helen Mirren.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
On the heels of 2015’s Furious 7, one of the fastest movies to reach $1 billion worldwide in box-office history and the sixth-biggest global title of all time, comes the newest chapter in one of the most popular and enduring motion-picture serials of all time: THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS.
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.
The Fate of the Furious opens in theaters on April 14, 2017
