Fast and Furious 8 Film plot and background
Sequel to the fast-paced action franchise, starring Vin Diesel’s old crew and Charlize Theron as the villain.
In the eighth installment of the popular street racing series, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his adopted family of speedy drivers set out to enjoy their well-deserved retirement. But when mysterious criminal Cipher (Charlize Theron) seduces Dom and moves him into the world of organized crime, the old crew must reassemble for a risky mission.
Has Dom really gone over to the evil side, or is he playing a double game? To find out, Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) mobilizes the gang around Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Roman (Tyrese Gibson), and Tej (Ludacris). And even mortal enemies Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) can ditch the hatchet for now. Now it’s up to them to stop the dangerous anarchist and save the man who made her family. They deliver spectacular car races with tanks, wrecking balls, and even a submarine.
Fast and Furious 8: Latest trailer
Fast and Furious 8: theatrical release, cast, and FSK
Fast and Furious has been in business since 2001. After the tragic death of leading actor Paul Walker in the middle of filming the seventh part, the franchise was considered over for a long time. Only through Paul Walker’s brother Caleb could the character of Brian O’Conner be given a worthy farewell. The second main actor Vin Diesel still wanted to continue the series and announced “Fast & Furious 8” at the end of 2015. He was able to win F. Gary Gray (“Straight Outta Compton”) as director and Chris Morgan as a screenwriter, who already wrote the book for Fast and Furious 7.
Fast and Furious 8 casts well-known characters, including Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto, Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz, Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs, and Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw. Kurt Russel will also return as Mr. Nobody, originally the villain in Part 7, while the most exciting newcomer, Charlize Theron, recently fought for the role of the action lady with “Mad Max”.
Fast and Furious 8 started in cinemas in the USA on April 14, 2017, and in Germany on April 13, 2017. The film was shot in Cuba, among other places. It is the first time since the US embargo that a US production has been filmed there. As usual, the action film is approved for ages 12 and up. Part 8 will probably not be the last and should form an independent trilogy within the series with Fast 7, Fast 8, and finally Fast 9.
