It’s here, it’s finally here. The trailer for The Fate of the Furious dropped over the weekend, and it takes the franchise on a completely different path. For all the “one last ride”(s), it seems that Dom is taking this next “last ride” on his own- and he’s going against his team, no less.
The Fast and Furious movies have taken us all over the world, showing the diversity in car culture across countries and continents. Fans will always have their favourites, be it the fast-paced Tokyo Drift, or the more laid-back Fast Five, but no matter which of the movies you prefer there is always excitement when a new instalment comes to cinemas.
Some have criticized the movie franchise for diverging from its original underground car culture and street racing roots, but the plot devices in play help a great deal in advancing the storyline and allowing the characters to grow and develop.
With the departure of the Brian O’Connor character following Paul Walker’s passing, the series won’t quite be the same without the JDM vs muscle car rivalry between O’Connor and Toretto, but the action promises to be just as exciting.
As always, this latest instalment seems to feature an eclectic range of cars, from muscle cars to imports and exotic cars as well. The team seems to go from the city streets to snow-covered landscapes in the pursuit of Dom, and some notable characters from the previous instalment return as well. The Fate of the Furious will come to theatres in 2017, and we can hardly wait.
