Production wrapped last month on the eighth “Fast and Furious” film with Vin Diesel indicating that the first trailer for the film would hit sometime in December. Now, Diesel has taken to his Facebook page with a more specific date – December 11th.
The posting appears to make a reference to the feud that erupted between Diesel and co-star Dwayne Johnson, saying: “The trailer for F8 is going to blow your mind… New York City December 11th. You will see why there was tension, you will understand the intensity.”
Series star Michelle Rodriguez has also spoken a little about the new film, specifically the inclusion of Charlize Theron as the villain of this outing. Rodriguez tells Cinema Blend that the actress will be a foe quite different to any of the others they’ve gone against: “We’re gonna go hard on this one. Charlize Theron is, I think, the most powerful villain this franchise has ever seen.”
“Fast 8”, which takes the franchise to Cuba, New York City and Iceland, opens April 14th next year.
