The runners-up include Amy Schumer’s new raunch-com, Harry Styles’s feature film debut, and Despicable Me 3.
Cars are blown up. A Lamborghini gets riddled with bullets. Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto goes rogue. Charlize Theron plays a dastardly villain. And all kinds of other ridiculousness ensues, leading to the trailer breaking a viewing record by garnering more than 139 million views in its first 24 hours.
I, for one, am glad this colossal boondoggle of a film is on the horizon.
Fast & Furious 7 surprised everyone when it became one of the highest-grossing movies of all time earlier this year, which obviously means an eighth instalment is on its way. And a ninth. And a tenth. The world can’t get enough of Dominic Toretto and his multi-cultural gang, who have grown from simple street racers to heist kings in a Mission: Impossible–Ocean’s Elevenhybrid.
