Universal Pictures has released The Fate of the Furious trailer, bringing our first look at the newest chapter in one of the most popular and enduring motion-picture serials of all time.
For the eighth film in the franchise, Vin Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell. In addition to Oscar winner Charlize Theron, the series welcomes newcomers Scott Eastwood and Oscar winner Helen Mirren.
In 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 (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, slated to hit theaters on April 14, 2017, is directed by F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton), written by Chris Morgan (Furious 7), and produced by returning producers Neal H. Moritz, Michael Fottrell and Vin Diesel.
