With F. Gary Gray’s Fast and Furious film in production, star Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. The Rock, a.k.a. Hobbs, has been sharing a lot of behind-the-scenes looks over social media. Personally, I’d much rather see these in-progress videos rather than an endless stream of over-produced marketing material (which will certainly still be coming closer to the film’s early 2017 release date). There aren’t a whole lot of clues as to where in the movie this takes place or how it adds to the plot; it’s just fun to watch Johnson dive away from explosions all day long.
Also starring Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky, Nathalie Emmanuel, Lucas Black, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Scott Eastwood, Kristofer Hivju, Helen Mirren, and Charlize Theron, Fast and Furious 8 opens April 14, 2017.
