Of course isn’t that what the cast said about Fast & Furious 7? Still, we’re excited that there’s going to be yet another chapter in the F&F saga.
Not only that, but we’re also looking forward to bigger and better things, and with good reason. In recent installments, the franchise has moved away from CGI. Sure, there will be the occasional “tower jump” that you obviously can’t do with a real car and a rear stunt man, but other than that, everything has been done by good old fashioned hard work.
And we love that. It shows craftsmanship and respect towards fans who love cars and expect realism on the big screen, even in the most outrageous of scenes.
As for Fast & Furious 8, we’ll be able to see it in theaters on April 14, 2017, and we’re really excited since Vin Diesel took to CinemaCon to say “I swear to you and I swear to my brother upstairs we’re going to make the best movie you’ve ever seen.”
Furious 7 is still climbing its way up the ‘highest-grossing films ever’ chart, with $1.15 billion in the bag while still playing in theaters around the world. It currently sits 7th all time on this list, between Iron Man 3 and Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
Now back to Furious 8, we’re not sure exactly what they’re going to do in order to make the best movie we’ve ever seen. It probably won’t be, but if their intentions are to blow us away by making something even bigger than Furious 7, then we’re totally on board.
Better and crazier stunts? A more unbeatable villain? More exotic locations? All of this would probably seem like more of the same. Maybe they’ll switch it up on us and deliver something we never expected.
