About The Fate of the Furious Movie:

The Fate of the Furious (also known as Fast & Furious 8 internationally) is an action film directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Chris Morgan. The film stars Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto, alongside Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Scott Eastwood, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky, Kurt Russell, and Charlize Theron.

The Fate of the Furious is the sequel to Furious 7 (2015) and the eighth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise. The sequel, F9, was released in June 2021.

The eighth installment was planned since 2014, and plot details were first announced in March 2015 when Diesel appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and announced that the film would be set in New York City.

Preparations for the film began immediately before the release of Furious 7, with Diesel, Morgan, and producer Neal H. Moritz re-signing.

After setting an initial release date in that same month, casting took place between April and June.

In October, Gray was announced to direct the film in the place of James Wan, who had directed the previous installment. Composer Brian Tyler, who had scored the third, fourth, fifth, and seventh installments, returned to compose the score.

Principal photography began in March 2016 in locations such as Mývatn, Havana, Atlanta, Cleveland, and New York City, continuing the franchise’s tradition of filming around the world.

With an estimated production budget of up to $270 million, it is one of the most expensive films ever made.

This is the first film in the series since The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) not to star Paul Walker as Brian O’Conner, following his death in November 2013.

The Fate of the Furious premiered in Berlin on April 4, 2017, and was theatrically released in the United States on April 14, by Universal Pictures. It received mixed to positive reviews from critics, with praise for the performances of the cast and action sequences but criticism for the storyline. The film was a box office success, grossing over $1.2 billion worldwide, making it the nineteenth film (and the second in the franchise, after Furious 7) to gross over $1 billion, the third-highest-grossing film of 2017, and the eleventh highest-grossing film of all time at the time. It also grossed $541.9 million worldwide during its opening weekend, which made it the highest-grossing worldwide opening of all time until the release of Avengers: Infinity War (2018). The sequel, F9, was released in June 2021.
