I’m going to be honest with you guys: I can’t stand Fast & Furious — any of them. Maybe it’s just because I’m not into plotless action movies or fancy cars racing each other and bank heists, but I just don’t see the appeal. There is, indeed, plenty of appeal, however. Universal Pictures revealed after the release of Furious 7 that it had become their highest selling franchise ever, so it’s no surprise they want to keep this gravy train rolling for as long as possible. To that end, they’ve announced that there will be 10 Fast & Furious movies altogether, and the release dates for the next (and final) three have been revealed.
If you can imagine yourself caring about this series for the next six years, then you’ll be pleased! The final Fast & Furious movie won’t be out until 2021, which, to write, feels like some faraway science fiction date but is actually coming up pretty quickly. Where are flying cars and our robot housekeepers like The Jetsons promised us? Instead, we get… more Vin Diesel racing custom sports cars. The future is looking bleak, man.
What do you think – are you excited about this? Will you go see it? Can you believe they’re making TEN of these things?
