Universal Pictures has released the Super Bowl spot for their upcoming sequel The Fate of the Furious, starring Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Kurt Russell, and many more.
Watch the extended Super Bowl TV spot here below.
The creators of the Fast and the Furious franchise have given up all claims to sanity and believability with this latest trailer for the 8th installment in the series that dates back to 2001. The newly titled The Fate of the Furious picks up from where 2015’s Furious 7 left off. After F7 paid tribute to the late franchise star Paul Walker, the 8th installment is apparently paying tribute to the military industrial complex. In just over one minute of the trailer, we see machine guns, wrecking balls, tanks, and why not, a nuclear submarine!
As the trailer starts, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) appears to turn his back on the gang, going with new villain Cipher (Charlize Theron). The entire crew is back including Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Kurt Russell, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, etc. Some of the notable highlights from the insane trailer feature what appears to be an arctic chase scene featuring as expected plenty of disposable gorgeous automobiles driving at and away from a submarine which breaches the ice. This may be the dictionary definition of “popcorn movie.”

Gary Gary, The Fate of the Furious, starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Helen Mirren, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky, Scott Eastwood, with Kurt Russell and Charlize TheronDafne Keen, opens in theaters everywhere on March 3, 2017

Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game””and the rest of the crew has been exonerated””the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life.
