Today we get the first full trailer for the eight instalment of the Fast & Furious franchise, which has been renamed The Fate of the Furious, is more accurately titled Wild Speed: Ice Break in Japan and is the franchise’s first outing not to include Paul Walker following his tragic death in 2013 [the handful of scenes he had filmed prior to the car accident were used in Fast 7].
Here’s the official synopsis from Universal:
‘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 (Oscar® winner Charlize 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.’
Until now, plot details have been scarce, but the first trailer makes it clear that the bad guy in this new caper may be none other than Dom himself. The family patriarch appears to betray his crew during a wrecking-ball-accented opening heist, all at the behest of Theron, the puppetmaster behind the new scheme. “Your family is about to go up against the only thing they can’t handle — you,” she says.
Helen Mirren and Scott Eastwood are new additions to the cast alongside Theron, joining regular cast members Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell.
Fate of the Furious will be released in UK cinemas on April 24th 2017Source: Fast & Furious
