“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).
