Watch the First Trailer for ‘The Fate of the Furious’

It’s “bombs away” in the action-packed first trailer for “The Fate of the Furious,” the eighth installment in the Fast & Furious series, that debuted during Sunday Night Football.

Charlize Theron makes her debut as the franchise’s new villain in the trailer, appearing to taunt Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto.

“You know what I like about you, Dom? You’re a genuine outlaw. But your family is about to go up against the one thing they can’t handle: you,” she says. “Did you ever think you would betray your family the way you did today?”

‘Fast and Furious 8’ Gets Official Title

In the movie, Dom and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) are on their honeymoon, and the rest of the crew has been exonerated, finding a semblance of a normal life. But when Theron’s character seduces Dom into a world of crime he can’t seem to escape, the family will face a new set of trials.

“I don’t know if the old Dom is in there,” says Dwayne Johnson in the clip. “I don’t give a damn. I’m taking you down, Toretto. Let’s play.”

Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham, and Ludacris will be reprising their roles as well, joined by franchise newcomers Helen Mirren and Kristofer Hivju. “Straight Outta Compton’s” F. Gary Gray directs.

“The Fate of the Furious” will hit theaters on April 14.

  1. Ever since the death of Paul Walker in a terrible crash during the filming of Fast & Furious 7, the world was curious to know who would replace him if the producers wanted to make the next instalment of the Fast and Furious series.
    Now when they are finally ready to release the 8th version of the series, we would finally get to know about the full cast of the movie.
    If you are curious to like me, just take a look at Fast and Furious 8 Wiki and also other details related to the Fast and Furious franchise.

  3. Lance Snead says:

    Argh! There is the plot of the WHOLE SERIES: They are enemies. Then they are friends. Then they are enemies. Then they are friends once more. Enemies. Friends. Back and forth. Back and forth. >:-(

    hmmm, i think the demographic has shifted from car guys.

  5. A combo of XXX, Fast & Furious adding new seasoned players but taking away the Family element making it the expendable team, Toretto is purposely being in-prisoned in order to get revenge on Shaw of course you can tell that by the trailer and Hobbs is in on it.

  6. Movie lover says:

    This is so dumbed down, stripped to the basest clichés – it should be a parody but the fans will embrace it because all they want to get is: explosions, rap music, macho posture, unbelievable stunts.

    To think that action movies actually once told solid stories with interesting characters…

  7. Tripp Fell says:

    Although it’s obviously so bad that it’s not even worth bitching about, Hollywood jail for anyone associated with this waste of time – easy payday or not (Ms. Mirren). Today’s bar is sooooooo low and yet even the trailer is unwatchable….Seriously, you should all be banned for life.
