It’s hard to believe that we’ve only gotten two trailers for The Fate of the Furious so far. Universal has just released the second one today (watch the first here), and if you thought you’ve seen everything in this franchise, well, the new trailer shatters that notion with a torpedo and a few missiles.
Yes, now the family will have to contend with military weaponry. Tanks were one thing, but a submarine is something that they will have to survive if they want to rescue Dom (Vin Diesel). Check out the newest trailer below.
The first trailer gave us a hint at a submarine chasing a number of cars, and while we thought that was the extent of it, director F. Gary Gray pushed it up a notch by having it fire torpedos and missiles. There’s plenty of action to go around, which revolves around Charlize Theron‘s character controlling all of the cars in New York City? Yeah, the franchise never really cared for a strong story, but then again, neither did the fanbase. There have been eight of these films so far, why fix what’s not broken.
As to why Dom leaves his family, that remains to be seen. All that’s revealed is Theron’s character has crossed paths with Dom in the past three films. So it should be interesting to see why she has been so fascinated by the family man.
Still, there’s no getting over Dwayne Johnson facing down a torpedo in what looks like the wildest game of chicken.
Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Jason Statham, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Kurt Russell, with Helen Mirren also star.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
On the heels of 2015’s Furious 7, one of the fastest movies to reach $1 billion worldwide in box-office history and the sixth-biggest global title of all time, comes the newest chapter in one of the most popular and enduring motion-picture serials of all time: The Fate of the Furious.
