The Fate of the Furious trailer shows Dom as the villain [w/video]

Article by Christian A., on December 15, 2016

We hope we got it wrong. Dominic Toretto or “Dom” has turned into a bad guy judging from the latest trailer of Fast and the Furious. Furious fans know that Vin Diesel’s role has always been the good guy. But as his fate has it, he’s apparently turned his back on his family in the movie. That certainly doesn’t look good.

Interestingly, the 8th instalment from the blockbuster film franchise has been named “The Fate of the Furious”. So there must be a lot of twists happening here and there as there is also a submarine. Since “family” has been mentioned more than once, we can expect the story to pick up from there.

From the looks of it, there’s obviously an element of “betrayal”. The poster says it all. It even comes with a statement saying “Family no more” with Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel turning away from each other. Dom’s “family” as we all know are also his friends/crew in the movie.

In the previous instalments, Diesel’s character has referred to his family as the most important people in the world. Fans of the movie will definitely get furious with Dom’s disloyalty.

But we’re hoping this is simply done to add a bit of drama to the story. But we couldn’t deny the fact that it got us all excited. Good thing, the late Paul Walker was briefly shown in the trailer on a photograph. At least for old time’s sake, we hope Dom changes his mind about being bad.

The three-minute trailer shows Dom working in conspiracy with a new villain named Cipher. And for some strange reasons, the gorgeous Charlize Theron portrays Cipher’s role. Jason Statham on the other hand has joined forces with the same crew that turned him down. Perhaps it has something to do with Dom’s apparent betrayal.

Kurt Russell is also back and could be playing an influential role. Surprisingly, Helen Mirren for the first time got a role from this movie. Though she didn’t appear in the trailer, she’s probably Theron’s mom. Mirren had always wanted to be part of the franchise but we couldn’t imagine her being part of the “crew” doing stunts and all that. So maybe a mother role would do?

“The Fate of the Furious” will be coming top theatres this April 14, 2017. Aside from the usual supercars, the movie also features as we said earlier, a submarine. There are also military vehicles and tanks. The trailer shows a sight of Cuba so this could be very exciting as far as streetcar racing is concerned.
