The eighth flick in the high-octane franchise stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Charlize Theron, Jason Statham, and Michelle Rodriguez and will be speeding to both formats later this summer.
As previously reported, Universal is preparing 'The Fate of the Furious' for Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray, and now the date the has been set for July 11.
Now that Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) are married 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. Also starring Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, and Kurt Russell.
