The “Fast” franchise is often overlooked when the great sequels are discussed. Rocky is always at the forefront of everyone’s list, then there is the Star Wars franchise and even Lethal Weapons. It’s easy to forget the Fast Franchise because we take it for granted. We stamp our feet and pout demanding for the next one as soon as the credits are rolling. Well, pout no more. We have the trailer for Fast 8.
All the mystery is over. The new film will be called The Fate of the Furious and as you can see from the trailer it appears that Dominic Toretto, (Vin Diesel) has turned on the family and now the family is teaming up with Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) to bring the real Dom back!
As with all the Fast movies, if you are not willing to suspend your belief in physics, town and state laws or the law of gravity then you will suck all of the enjoyment out of the franchise.
Following the pattern of the last 5, this has everything a Blockbuster is supposed to. Big name actors, big budget special effects, stunts and fight scenes. At least from the trailer, it appears that fans of the franchise will not be disappointed.
The Fate of the Furious is due in theaters on April 14, 2017!
