Vin Diesel - Fast & Furious 8 release date - Cinemacon 2015

 

Fast & Furious 8 is on the way.

On Thursday, Vin Diesel took the stage at Cinemacon in Las Vegas and announced the eighth installment of the high-speed adrenaline-pumping franchise will roll into theaters on April 14, 2017.

It means a lot to me to get your blessing.

We were giddy and excited. You all gave me so much confidence. There was so much love.

You’ve been so loyal all along. You helped us create history here.

History indeed! 20 days after opening in theaters, Furious 7 has scooped $1.15 billion worldwide making it No.7 on the list of highest-grossing films of all time.

It’s pretty obvious why they aren’t hesitating to pull the trigger on a sequel.

While I thoroughly enjoyed Furious 7, I’m sure Paul Walker‘s passing had a huge impact on their box office numbers.

We all wanted to see Paul Walker one more time…as well as their special tribute at the end of the film.

Do you plan to check out Fast & Furious 8?
