The first official trailer for Furious 8 — which is now titled The Fate of the Furious — will be released this Sunday, giving us our first look at the highly anticipated movie.
Ahead of the trailer’s debut, Universal has released the first synopsis for the F. Gary Gray-directed movie, revealing a few new details about its plot and how Charlize Theron’s villainous character, Cipher, factors into the story.
You can read the full 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 film stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Lucas Black, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Charlize Theron, Elsa Pataky, Nathalie Emmanuel, Scott Eastwood, Kristofer Hivju and Helen Mirren.
The Fate of the Furious opens in theaters on April 14, 2017.
