First Trailer Roars In For Fast & Furious 8 – And It Looks Completely Insane
'Family no more'.
The first trailer has arrived for Fast & Furious 8 – now called The Fate Of The Furious - and it looks like there’s going to be all-out war between Vin Diesel and The Rock! Oh, and some car chases too. Lots and lots of car chases.
All the buzz around the production of the film has been about a supposed fall-out between Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, but having seen the new trailer it feels like that might have been a publicity stunt, as the whole premise of the film revolves around the two going head-to head. So who’s your money on?
On the one hand, Rocky has Diesel’s old crew and all their firepower backing him up, when the latter goes rogue and betrays his “family”. On the other, Diesel has now teamed with newcomer Charlize Theron, and she looks to have more than a few tricks up her sleeve…(she has a submarine. A massive, f*ck off submarine.)
Check out the new trailer, below…
Okay, so there’s nothing in there that can quite top the parachuting supercars from F&F7, but that scene on the ice was still pretty cool. And it’s good to see Jason Statham is still in the mix. We can’t wait to see his prison showdown with Johnson…
Could “I’m going to beat you like a Cherokee drum” be the line of 2017? Maybe. Maybe.
Directed by F. Gary Gray and co-starring Kurt Russell, Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson, The Fate Of The Furious will open in the UK on 14 April 2017.
