The heroes of The Fast and the Furious series have taken on the Yakuza, hordes of self-driving cars, and a goddamn submarine. Given that each Fast & Furious movie has gotten increasingly more insane, there’s only one way the franchise’s next installment is going to be able to top its predecessors: by blasting off.
To put it bluntly, Fast & Furious is going to have to go to outer space if it wants to continue in the tradition of upping the ante, in terms of both stakes and stunts. Not only does director F. Gary Gray know this on some level, but he’s totally down to make it happen. During a recent interview with Screen Rant, Gray said that given how unbelievable some of the franchise’s previous eight films have been, getting the Crew into space isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
i never did get around to seeing the new Fast & Furious movie… not sure why, since i enjoyed the last couple of ’em… well, i liked Fast 5 and 6, but was mostly kinda “bleh” with the last one… so yeah, figure i’ll eventually either redbox it or just wait for it to come on FX or soemthing.
PS. anybody go to the theater to see it?
