Warning: Minor spoilers from “The Fate of the Furious” below.

As millions of moviegoers now know, The Fate of the Furious pairs Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson’s Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw on a mission to stop Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto. As you may remember, Shaw is the man responsible for Han’s death in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift — although, in the twisted timeline of the series, this wasn’t “revealed” until the end of Fast & Furious 6. A new piece in the Los Angeles Times addresses this perplexing about-face for Dom, who’s nothing if not consumed with loyalty to family. While it seems like this is a glaring inconsistency, cast and crew members seem to be indicating that perhaps Han will factor in some way in future installments.
Gal Gadot and Sung Kang in 2011’s Fast Five. For someone who lives his life a quarter-mile at a time, The Fate of the Furious leading man Dominic Toretto has remarkable staying power. The eighth film in the Fast and Furious franchise, about street racers turned high-tech, high-speed vigilantes, scored the biggest global opening of all time over Easter weekend.
The Fate of the Furious made smashing box office records look effortless during its debut weekend — almost as effortless as the franchise has long made impossible car stunts appear. The movie ends with the rescue of Dominic’s son on a cargo plane. An early version of the climax had Jason Statham pull a car seat from a duffel bag and load Dom’s baby into his car, which is housed inside the cargo plane. Statham then releases the car from the plane, in a scene that would be reminiscent of another big moment in the franchise.

Universal’s Fast and the Furious franchise is showing no signs of running out of gas on the world stage. If those estimates hold when final numbers are tallied early Monday, Fate of the Furious will eclipse Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($529 million) to boast the biggest global opening of all time. Fate of the Furious had the advantage of opening in day and date in China, where it earned a massive $192 million, the biggest three-day opening in history.
Warning: This post contains big spoilers for The Fate of the Furious. Contrary to what the early trailers have shown (and what Vin Diesel has suggested), it’s not Cipher’s kiss that has Dom under her spell. Rather, she’s secured his services by kidnapping…well, his kid — a baby boy brought into this world by former flame Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky), the Brazilian police officer who temporarily filled the Letty-sized hole in Dom’s heart back when his longtime lover (and, as it later turned out, wife) was missing and presumed dead.

As the “Fast and Furious” movies have grown in scope and pizzazz, so have the skills displayed by Tej, Ludacris’s character in the series.
It’s hard to believe it has been 16 years since the Fast and Furious crew first hit the big screen. The series about street racing has produced eight feature-length films and two short films and has become one of the biggest movie franchises of all time. Despite numerous cast changes, turmoil on set, and the unprecedented tragedy of Paul Walker’s untimely death in 2013, this series just keeps on going. With The Fate of the Furious opening on April 14, we thought we’d take a look back at all eight of the movie premieres.
The sequel — which opens in theaters on Friday — features a sequence (seen in its latest trailer) in which Charlize Theron’s cyberterrorist Cipher and her team hack the high-tech electronics in a fleet of newer cars on the streets of New York City. Innocent drivers suddenly lose control of their rides and parked cars come to creepy life, as Cipher operates them remotely, sending swarms of vehicles after a limo carrying a high-level Russian official. “There’s thousands of cars in this city,” says Cipher.
"He's literally going around saying that I had the best time of my life," she laughed. "It looks like I'm assaulting his face with my mouth."
