Rev up those engines as there is a new ‘Fast & Furious’ film approaching.
Universal has revealed the first trailer for the eighth film in the nearly $4 billion franchise, titled as ‘The Fate of the Furious’.
While critics and audiences embraced the seventh film, I found it slightly underwhelming compared to the solid fifth and sixth films that were entertaining and loaded with fun.
The trailer shows what audiences have loved; fast cars, plenty of action, and a rogue Dom?! Wait, that one’s new. So it seems from the initial trailer, Dominic is working with the bad guy this time around, turning against his family for reasons we don’t know as of yet, but it was odd seeing Dominic just turn to the dark side out of nowhere by smashing into Hobbs’s car and turning back on his friends so seamlessly. I know there must be a reason, but the context of it all just seems out of place, so I guess we’ll have to wait for the film’s release to find out why Dominic is going against his family of friends. It seems Dominic turning to the dark side seems to be the hook for the next film this time around. Although, I sort of wished we didn’t get the last shot of the trailer, that could have been a surprise for the film itself when it comes out next year.
‘The Fate of the Furious’ debuts in theatres on April 14th, 2017.
