The Fate of the Furious

April 14


The fate of the Furious franchise seemed a bit uncertain in the wake of star Paul Walker’s sudden passing in 2013, which complicated production of 2015’s Furious 7 and put the burden of additional expectations on his longtime co-star and friend, Vin Diesel. But with nearly $4 billion in worldwide grosses, Universal wasn’t about to garage its gearhead soap opera, so like clockwork, the gang will return for an eighth installment—and one that’s already being set up as a callback to previous chapters as well as a springboard into a new trilogy that will reportedly see stories pivot away from the heist capers of recent sequels and into a spy saga spearheaded by Kurt Russell’s Frank Petty character.


According to the official synopsis, the new sequel—titled The Fate of the Furious—finds Dom (Vin Diesel) lured back “into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him” by a “mysterious woman” (Charlize Theron), setting up another worldwide adventure that sends our crew “from the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea.” Listen carefully and under the roar of the motors, you can already hear the box office cash registers ringing.
