Watch: Super Bowl TV Spot for F. Gary Gray's 'The Fate of the Furious'
"You guys are going to work together." Universal has debuted their official Super Bowl TV spot for F. Gary Gray's The Fate of the Furious, following up the first trailer, from December, for this sequel. This new spot has plenty of totally cheesy footage, but of course fans will eat it up anyway. Vin Diesel leads the way, with a cast including Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Scott Eastwood, Lucas Black, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Elsa Pataky, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kurt Russell, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, plus two newcomers: Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron. This ends with a submarine and a missile evasion action scene, I mean come on, how absurd is that. Of course it has to be this crazy, why not. The wrecking ball scene looks like it will be fun, but I'm not so sure about the sub. Who's excited to see this?
Here's the full Super Bowl TV spot for F. Gary Gray's The Fate of the Furious, direct from YouTube:
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 (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 (Fast 8) is directed by filmmaker F. Gary Gray, of the films Friday, The Negotiator, A Man Apart, The Italian Job, Be Cool, Law Abiding Citizen and Straight Outta Compton previously. The screenplay is once again written by Chris Morgan. Universal will open The Fate of the Furious in theaters everywhere on April 14th, 2017 just before the summer kicks off.

The last 3 have been so absurdly fun to watch. I didn't think it was possible to up the ante after Wan's installment but here we are.

Yeah these just keep getting more and more ridiculous. I actually just watched 7 for the first time last week. Hard to believe the government would get Statham to help after all the mess he made in 7, but whatever. I'm sure it will be entertaining.

Adding Statham to "The Family" was either stupid or genius. Or just maybe stupid genius.

Isn't Statham even better than this? And what's with Charlize Theron in this..?

I do understand all that, of course, Bo. But I get surprised from time to time when I see it. Just can't resist not to react on it, I guess... Cheers ...

Have you seen Mechanic: Rise of The Silver Cobra?

No, but I don't have any big expectations from that either. I mean, none of this actors is doing art, obviously, I understand that. I just think that J. Statham is more serious about his career than V. Diesel. Whatever that career may be ...

I guess it pays to make garbage.

Did this trailer just spoil both the *#)%$&#% ending... AND Roman's big moment... WOW. Now there really is NO REASON to see this in the theater... and I've seen all of them since Tokyo Drift (in the theater, didn't get a chance to see 1 n 2 on the big screen).
