The film’s cast is featured in the British magazine “Total Film” May 2017 edition. Spoilers ahead so proceed with caution.
Michelle Rodriguez about working with Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham: “They’re ballers, you know?” Rodriguez marvels. “They come from that world that died in the ‘90s. They bring it back to life in full force.”
Several promotional posters and banners had been released a while ago. You can find them all in our gallery.
Jason gave a short interview about the eighth installment which was recorded during the press junket in Los Angeles, California on February 23, 2017.
A brand new trailer debuted during the 2017 Super Bowl featuring more of our favorite Brit as Deckard Shaw. It sure will be interesting to watch him “team up” with the enemy and find out his ulterior motive.
The action-packed commercial was shown in two parts during the 2017 Super Bowl on February 5th. It was directed by Louis Leterrier who had worked with our favorite Brit on “The Transporter” and “Transporter 2.”
As we begin a new year, let’s take a look back at what our favorite Brit had been up to in the old one. It sure was another thrilling, successful ride for him and we wish him nothing but the best, health and happiness for 2017.
While we knew our favorite Brit was going to be back in “Fast 8” renamed “The Fate of the Furious,” we had no clue as to how his character Deckard Shaw would resurface since he was imprisoned in “Furious 7.” To see him – if only grudgingly – team up with Toretto’s family, who apparently has turned his back on them, was nothing we ever expected. What a fantastic and surprising twist. We can’t wait to see Jason be part of the crazy bunch and hope he has more scenes than last time.
Congratulations to director F. Gary Gray, cast and crew and everyone else involved. With 139 million views in the first 24 hours, “The Fate of the Furious” broke the worldwide record and made it the largest ever trailer debut.
