Say what you want about the Fast & Furious franchise, but the fact is the last installment of this seemingly never-ending saga earned its makers more than one billion dollars. So it’s only logical that they would want to keep rolling out new ones for as long as they can, regardless of how ridiculous the plot, the stunts, and the whole friggin’ thing might get. This is the official teaser trailer for the Fast & Furious 8, dubbed The Fate of the Furious, in theaters April 14, 2017.
With a title like that you know that Fast & Furious 8, or #F8 as it’s known over the social media, is not going to offer much in the way of a sophisticated story, nor will it be challenging on an intellectual level, not even to a five-year-old. But, they’ve added Charlize Theron to the cast and she’s looking particularly hot, so… you know… who the hell cares about the plot. And of course F8 has got the usual dose of explosions, gun battles, booty, and car chases to keep the regular Fast & Furious fan base happy. Oh, and there’s no Paul Walker this time.
In Fast & Furious 8: The Fate of the Furious we travel with the cast (Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell, plus Scott Eastwood and Helen Mirren) from the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea. We see Challengers crash into Defenders, G-Wagens shoot at Mustangs and Camaros, tanks bow up a whole host of cars, and Lamborghinis evade military vehicles on snow. Needless to say, we will emerge from the experience with not much besides a massive hard-on!
