First ‘Fast 8’ Footage Reveals New Title

Drew Dietsch

The Fast and the Furious series is a big-screen juggernaut. It’s one of the reigning blockbuster properties at the movies. Each new film seems to raise the dramatic stakes and up the game in terms of auto-racing stunts. As the franchise has evolved, so have the titles of the films, each one followingly a different format (for the most part). The teaser for the teaser of the latest installment is here — the full teaser trailer arrives this Sunday, December 11 — and it’s no exception. Our first look at the eighth movie in the franchise brings us the best title yet. Check it out!

Yup. The Fate of the Furious. Certainly seems a little doomy, doesn’t it? It’s unlikely that this will be the last film in the series but could this be a warning about some character’s ultimate end? Things are getting pretty crazy and that’s really saying something for this series! Now we’ve got some Ice Capades shenanigans going on. These movies are such ridiculous pleasures and the preview promises nothing less. Oh, and we also get our first glimpse of Charlize Theron as the new villain. Yes, Imperator Furiosa is in one of these movies. And that’s kind of perfect.

Don’t forget, we’ll be getting a full trailer on Sunday so keep your eyes glued to Fandom.

Here’s the movie’s official plot 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 of 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 – it’s gonna take a while to get used to saying that – speeds into theaters on April 14.
