THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS Returning to Theaters This Summer to Celebrate Its 15th Anniversary
Can you believe it's been fifteen years since The Fast and The Furious came out? Before Fast Five catapulted the franchise into the next-level awesomeness it's become, the first film took the world by storm and had a huge impact on car culture in the early 2000s. The movie worked, largely because it was structurally just a remake of Point Break with cars instead of surf boards, and it turned Vin Diesel into a leading man.
The movie is returning to theaters on Wednesday, June 22, which marks exactly fifteen years since it first arrived, and you can pre-order tickets right here.
“All of us who make the Fast and Furious movies know we are part of a family that spreads all around the world,” said series producer Neal H. Moritz, “and we are happy to invite our fans to revisit where it all began back on the big screen. While we are hard at work making number eight, we are thankful to take this moment and celebrate the original that started us off."
Meanwhile, Fast 8 is scheduled to race into theaters on April 14, 2017.
