This time round, he’s on his honeymoon with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), while Mia (Jordana Brewster) and Brian (Paul Walker) have retired from racing. Well, Mr Walker’s no longer making films after his friend Roger Rodas drove them both into a concrete lamp post and two trees in November 2013, at around 100mph. I would be querying just how much cocaine Rodas had shoved up his hooter to make him think that driving at that speed was in any way acceptable, but apparently there was none!
But back to Fast 8, and with the rest of the crew exonerated, the team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman, Cipher (Charlize Theron), seduces Dom into a world of crime he can’t seem to escape, causing him to betray those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before…. it says here. But you just know that when the trailer is making it look like he doesn’t want his ‘family’ any more, he’ll just be winding us all up, and when the film comes round, everything will work out in the end, and they’ll be onto film No.9.
F Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) also directs Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Scott Eastwood, Lucas Black, Helen Mirren, Kurt Russell, Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris as The Fate Of The Furious is released in the UK on April 14th, 2017.
