A new promo released for the upcoming 8th installment to the fast franchise, The Fate of the Furious hints that Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) was forced to betray his family.
The film takes the fast family around the world from New York City to Cuba to the Arctic as they face the anarchist Cipher (Charlize Theron) attempting to bring back the leader of their family from the criminal underworld and prevent terror from being unleashed on the world.
In the promo, Dom exclaims that he had no choice but to turn his back on his family. We’re also given another look at the film’s insane action sequences including a glimpse at a scene that could one up the skydiving cars sequence in Furious 7. What could be crazier than jumping out of a plane? Jumping into one. You can check out the promo below.

The film stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Chris Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Natalie Emmanuel, Lucas Black, Kristofer Hijvu, with Kurt Russel, Charlize Theron, and Helen Mirren. Here’s the official synopsis:
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 hits theaters April 14, 2017.
