In what seems like an eternity since the last “Fast” movie, last night, the new trailer dropped….AND IT’S GLORIOUS.
WHAT. IN. THE. BLUE. HELL! Dom turned on the gang?! (More on heel turns later) It can’t be true. I don’t want it to be true. But I love it anyway! THIS is the way you keep the series fresh. Listen, I don’t go to my dvd collection of every Fast and Furious movie for deep and intricate plots or Daniel Day-Lewis type of immersion acting. I go to it for fast fun with cars, girls and a killer soundtrack–Something every Fast and Furious movie delivers on. Is it a bonus that they found a way to up the ante? Sure it is, but let’s be perfectly clear, this movie was going to be awesome no matter what. Three movies, or so, ago, they delivered a shot of adrenaline to the franchise in the form of a 6’5″ Samoan ball of charisma named Dwayne Johnson. And I feel like this movie is the sweet spot for his story arc. He brings balance to plot. Because, lets face it, if The Rock wasn’t there and Dom turned on his crew (with no Paul…RIP) they wouldn’t stand a chance, and the movies would be a little far-fetched. I do realize I just used “far-fetched” to describe a hypothetical plot when in the actual movies characters jump supercars from one skyscraper to the next via windows. I do realize that.
So, Dom turns bad and in return Kurt Russel sends for Jason Statham to join the gang after he and the rock escape maximum security prison. Everyone knows that the best part of pro wrestling is your favorite superstar going to the dark side and turning heel. The only thing close to as satisfying to a baby face heel turn, is a heel baby face turn. Which is exactly what is happening with the Transporter, Jason Statham. Black is white! Night is day! Our pets heads’ are falling off! Chaos in Fast and Furious land and I love it.
The rest of the trailer is high octane fun, with nuclear subs, tanks, wrecking balls and fast cars. The rest of the gang is back for this one too: Roman, Letty, Tej and even the Mother of Dragon’s secretary! Stacked cast, but…is it too much to ask to bring back these guys…
Get out the freeze chamber and put me down until this movie hits theaters!
DAMN, DOM. YOU COLD AS ICE!
The Fast & Furious Franchise Will Now Feature 10 Movies & End in 2021 According To Vin Diesel & His Haunting Singing Voice
This is not a surprising move, as the last three Fast and Furious movies have each grossed over $200 million, with Fast 7 making the most money out of any of the movies. But 10 movies is still a shit load of movies. Fast & Furious is turning into the ‘Trapped in the Closet’ of the movie world. It is kind of cool that it will end 20 years after the first movie premiered in 2001, and there is apparently nothing Hollywood loves more than a sequel. As long as The Rock is involved in all three, I’m in.
My sweet baby Bill Paxton, be still still my beating heart. Something tells me i’m going to be flying out to Hollywood on June 25 to be the first person on this ride. If I’m the first person in line I get to ride with Vin and The Rock, right? If that’s the case i’ll get in line now. Park attendant: “Excuse me sir, you can’t wait here, we are closing”. Me: “No, it’s fine, i’m meeting my friend Vin here.”
The Rock goes out of his way, more so than any other celebrity I can think of, to be nice and accommodating to his fans. He’s always mentioning his fans on Instagram or taking pictures with people who idolize him at the gym, but I think even The Rock would have a hard time answering @bae_unknown_. It seems like this Instagram commenter had more to say but decided to just end his thought mid sentence. This isn’t the most outrageous comment we’ve seen by a long shot, but it is kind of insane. If you’re going to take the time comment on someone’s Instagram, at least have it make a little sense. The Rock is such a genuine guy he’d probably take you out for steak and tequila if you could form a coherent sentence. Until then, keep asking questions without question marks.
I’m not invested in the Fast and Furious franchise, but there’s something about Vin Diesel singing a ballad to his dead friend that gets to me. I’ve only seen the first Fast and Furious, but I liked Paul Walker. He just seemed like a likeable guy, and he obviously touched a lot of lives since it’s been over a year since his death and this kind of tributes are still coming out. Vin Diesel is one of those guys who shouldn’t have any kind of a good voice, but he pulls it off.
Paul Walker, my sweet prince…..Ok, this movie looks amazing. If you don’t like Fast and Furious movies the new have a problem. What could someone possible hate about this? Fast cars, fighting, and The Rock?! Sounds like an Oscar to me.
PS – I don’t know how this gang went from street racing and beating up people to working for the government and killing people with large guns and tanks, but I like it. Talk about character arcs.
