What’s happening with the Furious? The “family” is back in action, but one thing is different this time – they must fight against one of their own – Dominic “Dom” Toretto is not on their side. He has re-grouped with a mysterious woman, Cypher. Why has he done this? Will the family still be able to survive? Mostly, will they be able to bring Dom back into the fam?
Last time, for Furious 7, we were left off with the crew, who decided to take it slow after being given immunity for their past crimes and concentrate on bringing up their families. Brian O’Connor (played by the late Paul Walker) moved away to bring up his young family, and no longer wants to be a part of the violence that car racing has now become. Deckard Shaw has managed to kill Han in Tokyo, and his arrest and incarceration in an underground prison is where he will be staying for a while. The crew has managed to bring two more members on – Ramsey, a British computer hacktivist and creator of God’s Eye. They also have Mr. Nobody, who has the means to find and help capture some of the biggest hackers and destroyers in the world. What more could they need when they have each other?

But now we see in the first official trailer released for Fate Of The Furious, that Dom is not on their side. In fact, he’s on the lookout to kill. Supported by high tech machinery and captivated by the beautiful and dangerous Cypher, he uses everything from wire cables to mammoth submarines to get the crew off track. Letty is of course, devastated, as he has turned his back on his family and on her. And guess what? Luke Hobbs has found himself in a familiar underground prison, and must take on Deckard Shaw, nudged by Mr. Nobody, who will now join the crew to bring Dom back and destroy this sinister ploy by Cypher. Will they succeed? Seriously, what is the fate of the furious?

After the release of the first official trailer for Fate Of The Furious, fans are asking for less blowing up and more car races, like in the good old days. That is what the franchise was known for in the beginning. Also, there are strikingly similar scenes in this movie to previous ones, especially the car cables, jumping into airplanes and other blow up sequences. Also, it looks blatantly obvious that Dom might be pretending to not be on the side of his crew in order to get intel on Cypher. Oops, spoiler alert! Furious 7 already made more than one billion dollars at the box office, so let’s see if Fate Of The Furious meets the hype. Stay tuned!
