Universal Pictures have recently released their first trailer for F. Gary Gray's (Straight Outta Compton) Fate Of The Furious.
It looks like we are in for another name switch around with the latest Fast And Furious movie now going by the moniker of The Fate Of The Furious in the US, while the UK title appears to be the much less unusual Fast & Furious 8.
The eighth movie finds the crew seemingly in a relaxed place. Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) are on their honeymoon, and the rest of the crew are enjoying a chaos free existence. But that is before a mysterious woman known as Cipher (Charlize Theron) somehow entices Dom back into a world of crime – and has him shockingly betray the others. And there are also struggles ahead for Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), who finds himself behind bars with Jason Statham's Deckard Shaw...
Soon, the team is splintering and facing trials that will test them like never before. And these are people who have driven cars out of planes and between skyscrapers...
Hopping between Cuba, New York and the icy plains near the arctic Barents Sea, the race is on to stop an anarchist and somehow bring home the man who made them into an unlikely family.
F. Gary Gray is in the director's chair with Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious 6) once again on script duties as the stunt team do ever madder things with assorted vehicles.
With franchise regulars Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Nathalie Emmanuel and Kurt Russell all returning, alongside new recruits Scott Eastwood (Fury), Kristofer Hivju (Game Of Thrones) and Helen Mirren (The Queen), Fate Of The Furious will be out on 14 April.
