The Fate of the Furious trailer: Swerves, turns, and a family in crisis

0

The eighth film of the Fast and the Furious franchise is officially dubbed The Fate of the Furious. (F8, get it?)

The trailer for the movie just hit the internet tonight, and we have it below. Get ready for heel turns, face turns, and some car crash booking straight out of Vince Russo.

It looks like the family is dysfunctional, guys.

Helluva a swerve there, right? Makes me wonder if Dwayne The Rock Johnson’s beef with Vin Diesel earlier in the year was just a coy bit of marketing to signal Dom’s heel turn in the film, And they say kayfabe is dead. (From here on out, I will write Dwayne Johnson’s name as “Dwayne The Rock Johnson” without quotation marks and as if The Rock were his legal middle name.)

We see Charlize Theron in there as a temptress and supervillain, but no glimpse of Helen Mirren in F8 yet. As you may recall, Helen Mirren really wanted to be in one of the Fast and the Furious movies. She was officially cast in some role for F8.

We’ve got a poster for F8 below, as well as a fake poster we concocted for the 10th Fast and Furious film, Fasten Your Seatbelts. (F10, get it?) Let us know what you think of this dramatic turn of events in the comments.
