The eighth but definitely not last Fast and Furious movie will hit theaters this coming April. It probably won’t be like the previous movies at all.
After reading this imagined dialogue between Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) on Observer, I’m actually pretty convinced that this is the way the next film is going to go: by way of relationship advice, smart car buying decisions and safe driving tips.
LUKE: Hey man, you know how much you mean to me, right? You’re not just my friend — you’re my brother.
DOM: 100 percent man. The feeling’s mutual.
LUKE: And if I ever criticize you, it comes from a place of love and respect. I hope you know that.
DOM: I do, Dom. What’s up buddy?
LUKE: Okay, how fast are you going right now?
DOM: Just under 45 miles per hour — the speed limit.
LUKE: Normally that would be the case. But what did we just drive past?
DOM: That’s a — ah hell, that’s an elementary school.
LUKE: That’s right. School’s in session and this is a school zone. Let’s drop it down to 25 miles per hour, pronto.
DOM: You got it. I appreciate you saying something.
LUKE: Of course. God, this is such a nice 2017 Toyota Camry.
DOM: It’s a hell of a car, no question.
Just look at that: two guys sharing a rare moment behind the wheel of a reliable and affordable car.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: But wait, I saw the trailer and it looks like the movie will be filled with explosions and mayhem.
Let me assure you: the people who cut the trailer included all of the action scenes in those three minutes and 17 seconds. Everything else will be positively tame—an exploration into one man’s marriage and how he learns to communicate with his life partner.
It will be riveting.
