Fast 8 is shaping up to be a seriously interesting movie both on and off the screen.
First we got news that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson called out his cast mates in his traditional WWE fashion by calling them candy asses. Then we found out that the late Paul Walker’s character might be continued through CGI and his brothers. But we’re finally able to bring you some good news as those last two were not exactly setting a good foundation for the first of the next 3 films in the franchise.
Vin Diesel, Dom himself, has just dropped the release date for the first trailer and it’s coming up faster than you think.
Without question it’s going to be interesting to see what happens in the next installment of the “Fast and Furious” franchise,”Furious 8.” After all, this will be the first movie in the entire franchise to not feature Paul Walker (though there’s been word his character, Brian O’Connor, may return with his brother playing the role). Vin Diesel, however, apparently can’t not only wait for the official April 14, 2017 US release date. The action star has just announced on his Facebook page the date for the film’s first trailer, which will happen on December 11.
“The trailer for F8 is going to blow your mind… New York City December 11th. You will see why there was tension, you will understand the intensity,” Diesel wrote. Little is known about the film’s plot, only that scenes have been filmed in Cleveland, New York City, and Iceland, and that it’ll be the first of a so-called final trilogy (consisting of Furious 9 and 10) before the expected spin-off films get underway. Directed by F. Gary Gray, “Furious 8” will also feature returning stars Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Ludacris, and Charlize Theron.
So we’ll see what happens when this trailer comes out. It could be great, it could be a gigantic shit show with CGI Brian O’Connor and more superhuman feats of strength (Lykan Hypersport picked up in the last one). All I know is I’m excited either way because these movies are just good entertainmeny. Plus the cars are nice to look at.
