The new Fate of the Furious trailer has gotten a lot of views and there is a lot of reason why. For one thing, it is a lot more visceral than the previous ones. Furious 7 was a bore in all of its stunts compared to this one. For one thing, there are a lot more practical effects in this film than the previous film. Also one thing to consider is that this installment is directed by F. Gary Gray, who has done ensemble films before with The Italian Job. It looks like he has taken some notes from the latest Mad Max film.
There are a lot of reasons that there have been a lot more views. One of the reasons is the plot of the film which is that Dom has turned on his family. Which has probably been played up on the set of the film with reports of Vin Diesel being a problem on set and there being tension between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel in particular. This is likely done for publicity and promotion of the film. There have been a lot of amazing spots in the film and a few things that of interest. One scene is the really uncomfortable scene of Charlize Theron’s character kissing Vin Diesel’s character.
There is a lot of speculation of what may be happening with Dom. Among the theories going around is that it is either a mind control device or some old fashion manipulation. There are clues going around about the villain being a cyber terrorist and Hobbs talking about the old Dom. There was also a report of the latest Fast and Furious having something to do with mind control among other things.
Jason Statham’s character, Deckard Shaw is joining the team of protagonists. Of course this was going to happen. Deckard was already written as someone who could be a protagonist. He was just out for revenge for his brother who was just his “cross to bear”.
The trailer for the latest movie in The Fast in the Furious franchise has just had its trailer released. The title of it has been revealed as The Fate of the Furious. This title is a rather strange title. The only thing that could come from this is that there has been some discussion of the title. Among the titles suggested was F8, sometimes pronounced, “Fate” fittingly enough. The current title does not sound like the final title of the film. It is possible they’ll make s slight change and just call it The F8 of the Furious. Either way, it is nice enough to have a trailer.
However, getting to the trailer is when things seem to reach the next level. The trailer starts off with the usual mission scene. Then there is a twist with Dom turning on his crew, or is he? Either way, the crew has to figure out what is going on with Dom. To get the help they need, they hire Deckard Shaw, one of the antagonists of the previous film to help out. What follows in the trailer are tiny clues to let people in what is going on. Dom is obviously being mind controlled. It is either a mind control device, or he is being manipulated with threats against the family.
As to the trailer itself, it seems like there are a lot more practical effects in this installment than there was in the previous. There seems to be a much more raw energy to this one than the last one. Even the car through building stunt of the previous film did not thrill anywhere as much as even the least exciting stunt of this film.
One thing about this film is that it is going to be the first of the next series of (last) Fast and Furious films without Paul Walker (even though he did not appear in Tokyo Drift either). However, there is a picture of him and his family in the film.
The Fate of the Furious will be released to theaters in spring of 2017.
