As of the beginning of April, there hadn’t been any public movement on Fast and Furious 8. However, once CinemaCon rolled around later that month, Universal Pictures got the hype machine started by announcing a release date on April 14th, 2017. And while there’s likely not a complete story developed for the sequel just yet, that hasn’t stopped one of the film’s stars from confirming that he will be back for more action. At a press conference for San Andreas (coming to theaters later this month), Dwayne Johnson revealed that we’ll definitely see him in Fast and Furious 8, and we may still get more Hobbs action in his own movie too.

The Fast and Furious franchise isn’t going anywhere. As Furious 7 continues its box office climb over $1 billion, the eighth film will hit theaters in 2017 and Universal Studios will soon open a ride based on the film.
That ride is called Fast and Furious: Supercharged and it opens June 25 at Universal Studios Hollywood. It’s an immersive experience that’s been integrated to the already famous and popular Universal Studio Tour Tram ride. Stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson and Luke Evans are all part of the ride. Below, you can see a brand new making of video for the ride, including those actors.

Furious 7 was a record-breaking success, but to paraphrase that old Biblical saying, man cannot live on Fast and Furious movies alone. So Vin Diesel is shaking things up a bit with The Last Witch Hunter, in which he plays — yup — the last witch hunter.
Immortal and kind of unhappy about it, Diesel’s Kaulder is locked in a centuries-long battle against a witch queen (Julie Engelbrecht) who wants to unleash a plague on humanity. Fortunately, he’s got some help in the form of Rose Leslie, of Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey fame. Elijah Wood and Michael Caine also star. Watch the first The Last Witch Hunter trailer after the jump. Read More »
Vin Diesel just made the inevitable official. After grossing a billion dollars and counting with Furious 7, the star took the stage at CinemaCon in Las Vegas and announced that a eighth Fast and Furious film will be released on April 14, 2017. Diesel said it’ll be “the best movie you’ve ever seen.” Read more about the Fast and Furious 8 release date below. Read More »
On its opening weekend, Furious 7 grossed $392 million worldwide. That’s a jaw-dropping gross for a franchise that just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Many figured an announcement of an eighth installment in the franchise would happen almost immediately. However, that was not the case. Star Vin Diesel seems confident in a sequel, even suggesting the franchise will go to New York. Another rumor says Eva Mendes‘ character, last scene as a cameo in Fast Five, could return. But don’t go buying your tickets just yet. Produce Neil Moritz says nothing has been settled about Fast and Furious 8, but it should be soon. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We used to post an April Fools Day story each year on /Film, but I became annoyed by all the uncreative unfunny fake stories which infest this day. So we haven’t really participated in April Fools Day in a few years, and thats not changing this year — all the news you see on our front page is real news we believe to be true (hey, there’s always the chance that we’ll get fooled). So I’m not even going to pretend this is real for even a sentence or two (I know I’d almost have a mini heart attack), but I think its worth checking out.
I wanted to highlight this video from IGN, which claims to be a teaser trailer for a new Back to the Future reboot titled Fast to the Future starring Vin Diesel. I love this fake trailer as an April Fools Day release because you might buy it for a few seconds before it becomes so obviously ridiculous, It took some work to create this edit complete with computer generated effects… and its just fun. Watch the Back to the Future reboot trailer embedded after the jump.

He was cast for a story that happens afterward in New York, which is an obvious tease about Fast and Furious 8. Watch the video and read more about the Fast and Furious 8 setting below. Read More »
