A new trailer for the next installment in the Fast & Furious franchise has dropped, and absurd doesn’t begin to describe it.
The YouTube comments for the video adequately sum up the franchise, which is now going on its eighth film:
JDesroch 98: Remember when Fast and Furious was about street racing…
Jaffiest: When FAMILY is FAMILY it is FAMILY’s duty to save FAMILY while saving FAMILY. FAMILY: THE MOVIE, starring: FAMILY. From the produces of “FAMILY: a FAMILY” and “FAMILY 2 THE FAMILY.”
Counterspell: fast 8: submarine; fast 9: spaceship; fast 10: interdimensional teleporter.
Praharsh Mishra: Can’t wait to see Optimus prime and Dom team up against the avengers in order to save Buzz lightyear.
And so on and so forth.
I can’t help but love it
Despite the franchise’s unabashed obsessions with going to ridiculous limits, I can’t help but enjoy the heck out of it. Where else can you see Dwayne Johnson rip off an arm cast and shoot a drone out of the sky?
The Fate of the Furious looks like the most insane installment yet, featuring Johnson catching a grenade, Charlize Theron commanding a legion of autonomous vehicles, and Tyrese yelling with child-like excitement.
The Fate of the Furious comes out on April 14.
