F8 has a weird new title with a smart pun: The Fate of the Furious
The official Twitter handle of the Fast and Furious franchise revealed the title of their eighth movie on Friday. Though it may sound weird and clichéd at first, The Fate of the Furious has a pun hidden in its name.
We think the word ‘Fate’ is playing on the original title, F8.
The action franchise, starring Vin Diesel in the lead, has forever been known for its unusual titles: The Fast and the Furious (2001), 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003), The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006), Fast & Furious (2009), Fast Five (2011), Fast & Furious 6 (2013), Furious 7 (2015). The latest is an apt addition to the long list.
The announcement came with a short clips from the upcoming trailer which will debut on Sunday.
The clips promise more cars, more action, more girls, peppered with a few snow mobiles. The clip is just 15 seconds long and more or less a montage of random images. We see Charlize Theron, Diesel and Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez.
The movie also stars Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell, Scott Eastwood and Helen Mirren. It will open in April 2017.
