The Fast & The Furious has turned into a parody of itself. Most people don’t seem to mind and the movies continue to make crazy amounts of money. The new Super Bowl trailer reminded everyone that if there was any semblance or hope of a grounded adventure starring the Fast & Furious crew, it was lost and buried a long time ago before Paul Walker had an untimely retirement from the franchise.
The newest trailer for The Fate of the Furious doesn’t break much ground from what the latest trailer offered up, but there are a few more quick clips of explosions, cars exploding, buildings exploding, rooms exploding, grenades exploding, glass exploding… did I mention there were explosions? Well, yeah… there are explosions. You can check out the trailer below from KinoCheck International.
Some some of the new scenes we get in the new trailer includes Charlize Theron and Vin Diesel using some explosive devices to take out The Rock… but as we all know, you can’t blow up The Rock. The Great One manages to throw the explosive device out of the way and dive for cover.
Another new clip sees The Rock and Jason Statham getting into an exchange of words, with Statham managing to get in a verbal jab that I’m sure The Rock won’t let go unchallenged. And we get that weird but awesome sequence where a whole bunch of cars fall out of a building. I have no idea what’s going on there but… does it really matter?
We have zero clue what Charlize Theron character is up to, but she needs Vin Diesel’s help to carry out her maniacal plan. Thankfully Kurt Russel recruits The Fast crew to help bring down Diesel and Theron, and he gets The Rock to bust Jason Statham’s character out of prison after he was locked away following the events of the last film.
These movies have veered too far away from themselves to be anything other than explosive, big-budget schlock, but it is what it is. The Fate of the Furious is due for release this April.
