Furious 7 was a miracle. The sudden death of Paul Walker forced friend and series mastermind Vin Diesel to reconceptualize the blockbuster on the fly. The finished product, a reverse-heist movie, stood as a fitting tribute to Walker and one of the rowdiest entries in the franchise. But one thing was clear in the end: Fast & the Furious would never be the same again.
With the first trailer for Fast & Furious 8, dubbed The Fate of the Furious, we see exactly how Diesel's Dominic Toretto handled his pal Brian O'Conner riding off into the sunset at the end of Furious 7. Short answer: poorly. In this new installment, directed by Straight Outta Compton's F. Gary Gray, Dominic is recast as the adversary of his high-wheeling family, a puppet with strings pulled by Furious newcomer Charlize Theron. Theron brings her Mad Max: Fury Road energy to the role -- crazy hairstyle and all.
