Fast & Furious Brings The Cavalry By Announcing Release Dates For Two More Sequels
Here's the image they released confirming the various release dates;
Something else that makes this franchise so endurable? Its emphasis on the connections between its lead characters. There's a reason sagas like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Star Wars saga and, of course, the Fast & Furious movies are king of the franchise crop; they all have interesting characters that audiences can get super emotionally invested in with ease. Hell, that fixation on the concept of family is why that beautiful Furious 7 ending homage to Paul Walker worked so well. These films had done such a good job establishing that all of these ragtag lovers of cool cars really were a tight-knit family, that the idea of saying goodbye to Paul Walker in this touching format fit right in with the emotional crux of the entire series.
And now, a new age of Fast & Furious begins. Hopefully they do end up calling Helen Mirren to be a bad guy (she's publicly expressed interest in it!) and hey, maybe time travel gets involved. After all, nything's possible with these movies and that's kind of why they're so much damn fun.
