Grab Your Family, ‘The Fast and the Furious’ Is Returning to Theaters This Summer
To honor the 15th anniversary of the movie that started it all, Universal is re-releasing The Fast and the Furious in theaters nationwide. Revisiting your introduction to Dom, Letty, Brian and the magical world of NOS should help make the wait for Fast 8 a little easier, but you’ll only have a limited time to see the original film on the big screen.
Universal has officially announced plans to re-release The Fast and the Furious in theaters this summer to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the hit film that went on to launch an entire Fast & Furious franchise — and made us all believers in the power of Vin Diesel. You can pre-order your tickets from Fandango for the special re-release, which hits theaters on June 22 for a limited time.
And if the 15th anniversary of a movie released in 2001 makes you feel old, just wait until you see how young everyone looks in comparison to Furious 7. Vin Diesel is pretty much immortal, but Paul Walker is just a teensy baby in this thing. Here’s the trailer if you need a reminder:
Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray is handling the eighth installment in the franchise, which features returning stars Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Jason Statham. Charlize Theron will play the new villain for the sequel, which arrives on April 14, 2017.
