Furious 7 literally made a billion bucks back in 2015, making the hype surrounding this year's Fate of the Furious (GET IT?!!? Fate=F + 8) about as massive as the movie's rumored running time. Following the release of the first proper trailer in December and this month's Super Bowl TV spot, a new international trailer for F. Gary Gray's surefire blockbuster has arrived to ensure the hype stays palpable.
This latest look at the eighth entry in the Fast & Furious franchise gives us a better look at whatever the hell is going on between Dom (Vin Diesel) and Cipher (Charlize Theron). Additionally, we are treated to astounding visual depictions of explosions and unreasonable driving speeds.
As spotted by Polygon Monday, the Internet Movie Database recently added a compelling running time to the Fate of the Furious page. At two hours and 17 minutes, Furious 7 previously held the title of longest Fast & Furious movie of all time. However, if the reported running time for Fate of the Furious is to be believed, that record is about to be annihilated. According to the movie's IMDb page, Diesel and company will be doing their thing for a full 160 minutes. For the record, that would be longer than The Revenant.
Peep the crucial parts of the film's official synopsis below:
Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game—and the rest of the crew has been exonerated—the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage…and to bring home the man who made them a family.
The Fate of the Furious, also starring Michelle Rodriguez and Dwayne Johnson, hits theaters Apr. 14.
