The Fast and Furious franchise has come a long way in the 15-plus years itâ€™s been around. It started out in a grounded, semi-drama that took itself way too seriously. Over the next couple films, it would swing from one end of the spectrum of the other, trying to find its way. 2 Fast 2 Furious tried its hand a strictly Paul Walker-led film, and Tokyo Drift tried to reboot the entire franchise. The true reboot didnâ€™t come until Fast and Furious hit theaters, reuniting Walker and Vin Diesel for the first time since the first flick. Since then, the franchise has been on the rise.
Things hit the next level in Fast Five when it introduced Dwayne Johnson into the mix, and sadly, the passing of Paul Walker in the middle of the production of Furious 7 helped to push the series into the stratosphere. Itâ€™s with all this in mind that weâ€™ll be getting The Fate of the Furious, the eighth film in the franchise, and from the looks of the new trailer, it looks like itâ€™ll be the most action-heavy one yet.
Check out the new trailer below!
The official synopsis for The Fate of the Furious is below:
â€œNow that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the gameâ€”and the rest of the crew has been exoneratedâ€”the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (OscarÂ® winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he canâ€™t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before.
â€œFrom 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 worldâ€™s stageâ€¦and to bring home the man who made them a family.â€
