The Final ‘Fast & Furious’ Movies Just Got Premiere Dates
Good news: the franchise won’t retire until 2021.
Vin Diesel has been teasing us for a while that we’ll be getting a total of 10 Fast & Furious movies, and now it’s official: Fast & Furious 9 & 10 have been given premiere dates of April 19,2019 and April 2, 2021, respectively. Fast 8 had previously been confirmed to premiere on April 14, 2017.
Diesel first shared the news on his Instagram account, and Universal confirmed it shortly after.
The added movies make Fast & Furious one of the longest-running movie franchises of all time, but not the longest: The Pink Panther, National Lampoon, and James Bond are among several franchises with installments in the double digits. The franchise has been hugely lucrative, with the most recent movie, Furious 7, bringing in over $1.5 billion worldwide.
Vin Diesel is going to be able to buy a lot of cars when this is all over.
