Fans of musclebound men drinking Corona talking about family while occasionally performing death-defying stunts in cars no one could ever afford rejoice! The newest trailer for Fast and the Furious 8 has hit the web.
Fast 8, or to give it its proper title Fate of the Furious, isn’t going to be like the other seven million films in the franchise, it’s gone the way of the DCEU and got itself a dark new finish.
The movie will see Dom (Vin Diesel) turn his back on his beloved crew when a mysterious new criminal mastermind called Cipher (Charlize Theron) appears and manages to corrupt our hero.
Of course the family aren’t going to turn their back on their fallen leader and Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) take the lovable band of rogues on a quest to rescue Dom from Cipher.
If this new teaser’s anything to go by though things won’t be easy for the crew as Cipher isn’t alone, she’s got an entire army of cars at her disposal and she isn’t afraid to use them.
Remember when these films were about drag racing?
Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel and Kurt Russell all return to the series and they’re joined by series newcomers Scott Eastwood and Helen Mirren.
The Fate of the Furious crashes into theatres in the UK on April 12.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
