From even very in the beginning, and while Furious 7 had been in theaters, we knew Fast 8 would be placed in New York City and take care of the enigmatic past of Kurt Russell's precious Mr. Nobody.
Since Diesel told Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2015, "I always think of these films as multiple pictures at a time." In that vein it makes sense that the mysteirous Russell character, who faded away in Furious 7 while sitting in a desert, would return.
We now have the latest trailer for The Fate of the Furious, and while it doesn't explain why Vin Diesel's Dom has switched against his family, it does offer a little more backstory on Charlize Theron's Cipher.
While talking about the health of his Furious rogue Owen Shaw, merely not killed in his appearance in Fast & Furious 6, Evans claimed, "“He’s in a military hospital because he’s the most wanted man on the planet, but he’s got a extremely powerful brother, and he’s now got a mother as well, who’s played by Helen Mirren." In case she is the mama of these baddies, no surprise that Dom can't shake them.
The eighth series of the Fast and Furious franchise, the Fate of the Furious, hasn’t hit theaters yet, however that doesn’t ensure we’re not burning with interest at what stunning cars and trucks will be in the film. It probably won’t be similar to the previous movies at all.
In other latest news...
It has been a hard interest about just who Helen Mirren is going to be playing in this series of fast cars and big explosions. Now thanks to Yahoo, we have the answer! In fact, while Luke Evans was communicating with the site about his new movie Beauty and the Beast, he mistakenly leaking the beans on Mirren performing the mother of his and Jason Statham's characters in The Fate of the Furious.
It goes without saying that among the most glorious on-screen cars and trucks ever manufactured are the direct results of these movies. A certain orange Veilside Mazda RX-7 comes to mind. The blessed ducks at Mighty Car Mods have the opportunity to trip the workshop where the cars are maintained and chat with Dennis McCarthy, a Hollywood film car maker. That guy’s got a awesome job.
