The countdown has started.
Without question it's going to be interesting to see what happens in the next installment of the "Fast and Furious" franchise,"Furious 8." After all, this will be the first movie in the entire franchise to not feature Paul Walker (though there's been word his character, Brian O'Connor, may return with his brother playing the role). Vin Diesel, however, apparently can't not only wait for the official April 14, 2017 US release date. The action star has just announced on his Facebook page the date for the film's first trailer, which will happen on December 11.
"The trailer for F8 is going to blow your mind… New York City December 11th. You will see why there was tension, you will understand the intensity," Diesel wrote. Little is known about the film's plot, only that scenes have been filmed in Cleveland, New York City, and Iceland, and that it'll be the first of a so-called final trilogy (consisting of Furious 9 and 10) before the expected spin-off films get underway. Directed by F. Gary Gray, "Furious 8" will also feature returning stars Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Ludacris, and Charlize Theron.
