There’s nothing I value more about the FAST AND THE FURIOUS series like their ability to embrace bombastic, over-the-top, campy stunts. It gives me so much glee! And I predict that the 8th film, THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, is not going to disappoint us at all. Nope. Not in the least bit. It’s got chicks, guns, submarines and another kick-ass diverse cast of superstars. Oh! And there’s a giant wrecking ball too!

If you are not standing up, cheering right now, you don’t know joy. I’d be hard pressed to learn if any of you aren’t looking forward to this film. We all need a little dumb fun in our lives right now and the #F8 creators are gonna give it to us in spades.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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.

THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS opens on April 14.
