Dom, Letty And The Crew Are Back In A New Trailer For ‘The Fate Of The Furious’

“You’re gonna turn back on family?”

Dominic Toretto has gone rogue, according to the latest trailer for “The Fate Of The Furious,” the eighth installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise. Letty can’t believe it, but there’s no time to lament his departure, so she and Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) round up the crew to track him down. Apparently, a high-level hacker named Cipher (Charlize Theron) has recruited Dom to help her complete a heist. By the looks of it, Dom may be doing it against his will. What does Cipher have on Dom? Hobbs and the crew meet with government agent Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell), who reveals he’s recruited a familiar face to help them find Dom: Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), the villain of “Fast 7.”

As the trailer progresses, souped-up sports cars give way to armored vehicles and tanks. Oh, and eventually, a submarine gets involved in the action. There’s plenty of the over-the-top action that made “Fast 7” a huge hit — at one point, Hobbs grabs and redirects the trajectory of a torpedo (yes, a torpedo) that is gliding next to his moving vehicle. Several of the characters you’ve come to know throughout the series will make appearances, including Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson), Tej Parker (Ludacris) and Santos (Don Omar) & Leo (Tego Calderon).

Mexican Theater Chain Opening Two Kid-Friendly Theaters In The U.S.

With home entertainment becoming more high tech and accessible every year, movie theaters are being forced to come up with inventive ways to attract customers. Some theaters allow patrons to enjoy adult beverages and food during the movie, while others have figured out how to make the overall experience more immersive.

In an attempt to lure families to their theaters, Mexico-based movie theater chain Cinepolis has done the unthinkable: turning the theater into a giant playscape for children.

With Cinepolis Junior, children can chill and watch a movie, or they can get buck on the kid-friendly playscape.

In an interview with Los Angeles Times, Cinepolis representative Adrian Mijares Elizondo said, “It’s really intended to make kids feel welcome and comfortable. The whole idea is to make it easier for parents to take their kids to the movies and let the kids have more fun.” Children will be allowed to work out their zoomies before the movie begins, and after it ends, they will be allowed to play again for a limited time.

For parents looking to get some relaxation at the theater, beanbag seats are definitely the way to go.

There are even some laid back lounge chairs for kids to enjoy.

So far the Mexico based Cinepolis has tested out their Junior theaters in foreign markets, like Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Spain, but now two are now being introduced in the Southern California area. Next week, parents can check out the Cinepolis Junior experience at Pico Rivera, in the Los Angeles area, and the Vista just north of San Diego.

The Los Angeles Times points out that tickets will likely cost more than your normal viewing experience, which is why Cinepolis is testing the waters with only two locations for now. It costs Cinepolis roughly $500,000 to turn a single theater into a kid friendly environment.
