Universal has released the first official trailer for the next installment in the The Fast and The Furious franchise Fate Of The Furious. Continuing off the success of Furious 7 (2015) the franchise Straight Outta Compton helmer F. Gary Gray directs Fast 8 and pitts the members of the “family” against each other.
The trailer as expected, is high on action and ridiculous at times. But hey, that’s the way how it already was and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! What is the major plot point is the introduction of Charlize Theron‘s villain character who has successfully seduced Dom Toretto to the “dark side” if you will. After what is a regular mission for the team, Dom inexplicably goes on to betray the group and has joined forces with Cipher (Theron). The trailer also sees Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) joining the team now lead by Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) to take down Dom.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for the film :
Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game—and the rest of the crew has been exonerated—the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before.
From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage…and to bring home the man who made them a family.
