Guests attended the premiere of The Fate of the Furious at Event Cinemas Chermside on Tuesday, 11 April.

The Fast and the Furious franchise spans 16 years and eight films so far. Fate of the Furious aligns itself quickly with its predecessors, getting very quickly to the Latin music, fast cars, attractive women, and big explosions.

Many people may find themselves wondering if an eighth film could really continue to capture audiences.

If you enjoyed the prequels to this film, you’ll probably be too distracted by the high-speed chases and quick-witted banter to even consider the question.

Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty’s (Michelle Rodriguez) are enjoying their honeymoon when they receive a call from Hobbs (Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson) to pull the team back together. What seems to be a straight forward (for them) snatch-and-grab takes an unexpected turn and the family find themselves facing off against one of their own.

Jason Statham reprises his role as Deckard. Statham and Johnson face off in a magnificent, fast paced, fight scene, adding another layer to the already action packed film.

With filming taking place across the globe, you can be sure of some spectacular scenery; Iceland, Germany, Cuba, and the USA all played host to the crew.

Fate of the Furious is in theatres now.
