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.
