A new “Fast 8” teaser has arrived! The 3-minute-long clip focuses on the film’s actors talking about the franchise’s history and the importance of “family”.
Though Universal Pictures has yet to release a plot synopsis for the film, “Fast 8” is expected to take place in New York City and Cuba, where Dominic Toretto’s (played by Vin Diesel) family is rumoured to live. According to Diesel, the forthcoming film will be the “most ambitious, most entertaining, fastest, and most furious ride yet”.
The behind-the-scenes footages show an action sequence featuring Dwayne Johnson and Ludacris as well as shots of Charlize Theron and Diesel, hinting at the 2 characters’ possible alliance. There are also multiple scenes from previous “The Fast and the Furious” movies, including snippets of Paul Walker, who passed away in a tragic car crash in 2013. Finally, it ends with an announcement that the full trailer will be released on 11th December.
“‘The Fast and the Furious’ saga has explored the endless possibilities of the open road. From the streets just outside downtown Los Angeles, we’ve taken you to Miami, Tokyo, the Dominican Republic, Rio, London, Abu Dhabi, and now, our name is known all over the world,” said the film’s cast.
