After Shaw and Hobbs both escape the prison, they are recruited by intelligence operative Mr. The team tracks Dom and Cipher to their very location just as the latter two attack the base, causing injuries to the team, and stealing God's Eye.
Roman suggests bringing Brian in to help them, but Letty rejects the idea as they agreed not to bring him and Mia into any more missions for the sake of their children. When Dom questions Cipher's motives, she reveals that she has been holding hostage Dom's ex-lover and DSS agent Elena Neves—as well as their son, of whose existence Dom was previously unaware.
Elena tells Dom that she wanted him to decide the child's first name, having already given him the middle name Marcos. Prior to the theft, Dom briefly evades Cipher—with the help of Raldo—and persuades Shaw's mother, Magdalene Shaw, to help him. Cipher hacks into the electronics systems of a large number of cars, causing them to disable the convoy so that Dom can take the football. The team intercepts Dom, but Dom escapes, shooting and apparently killing Shaw in the process.
Letty catches up to Dom, but is ambushed and nearly killed by Cipher's enforcer, Connor Rhodes, before Dom rescues her.
In retaliation, Cipher has Rhodes execute Elena in front of a helpless Dom. Dom infiltrates a base in Russia to use the EMP device to disable their security and then to disable a nuclear submarine , enabling Cipher to hijack it and attempt to use its arsenal to trigger a nuclear war.
They are once again intercepted by the team, who attempt to shut down the sub, and then drive out toward the gates that would prevent the sub from leaving into open waters. Meanwhile, Shaw, whose death was faked, teams up with Owen, and at Magdalene's behest, infiltrates Cipher's plane to rescue Dom's son.
Once Shaw reports that the child is safe, Dom turns on Cipher and kills Rhodes, before rejoining his team. Infuriated, Cipher fires an infrared homing missile at Dom, but he breaks away from his team and maneuvers around it, causing the missile to hit the submarine instead.
The team quickly forms a vehicular blockade around Dom, shielding him from the ensuing explosion. Shaw reaches the front of the plane and confronts Cipher, who jumps from the plane with a parachute.
Hobbs is offered his DSS job back, but he declines in order to spend more time with his daughter. Shaw delivers Dom his son, putting his differences aside with Dom and Hobbs. Dom names his son Brian, after his friend and brother-in-law Brian O'Conner , and celebrates with his friends.
Esprit appears as DS Allen. Following the release of Furious 7 , Vin Diesel said regarding a possible sequel:. I was trying to keep it close to the vest throughout the release.
Paul Walker used to say that [an eighth film] was guaranteed. And in some ways, when your brother guarantees something, you sometimes feel like you have to make sure it comes to pass Moritz , The Fast and the Furious franchise producer .
Diesel further hinted at an eighth film on Jimmy Kimmel Live! He also stated that the next film would take place in New York City.
Moritz returned to produce. Moritz later stated, "[The story] is going to have to be something enticing for all of us. It has to be as good as or better [than Furious 7 ]". Gary Gray would direct the film. In July , Moritz said that Walker's character, Brian O'Conner, would not appear in the film, following the use of CGI in the previous film after Walker died in a single-vehicle accident on November 30, , with Moritz stating that his character had "moved on".
Diesel, Russell and Michelle Rodriguez were the first to confirm their involvement in the film, and Tyrese Gibson and Chris Bridges both confirmed their return soon after.
In keeping with the franchise's penchant for filming in "exotic" locations, such as Dubai and Rio de Janeiro , in January it was announced that Universal was seeking approval from the United States and Cuban governments to shoot part of the film in Cuba. The prop struck two horses: one was wounded and the other mortally injured; it was later euthanized. Windon returned for the eighth instalment.
Brian Tyler , who scored the third, fourth, fifth, and seventh installments, was tapped to compose the film score for the eighth picture. The Fate of the Furious had its world premiere in Berlin on April 4, The Fate of the Furious concluded as the third highest-grossing film of the year worldwide. It received the widest pre-summer release ever, at an estimated 4, venues, besting the 4, opening theater count of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice the previous March.
It posted an almost identical weekend multiplier like its immediate predecessor 2. Scott Mendelson of Forbes magazine compared the opening to how Spectre opening fell from Skyfall One notable record the film set was the best opening for a film with an African-American director, with Gray besting his own record set with Straight Outta Compton in Sticking to the franchise's famous and lauded habit of including a multi-ethnic cast of characters, the film played to audiences of all ethnicities.
The pic skewed male at 58 percent, far more than the last film at 51 percent. This means more die-hard moviegoers came out to watch the eighth instalment rather than people who do not typically go to the movies. Universal Pictures was well aware that the robust debut of Furious 7 could not be duplicated  due to the wave of good reviews and publicity over the death of star Paul Walker , as well as the notion that the installment was both a farewell to the actor and a kind of coronation for the franchise as a whole.
To wit, few film franchises which are close to 20 years old have demonstrated a box office ability to increase their openings with each installment over time or maintain them in close proximity in terms of debut numbers; James Bond film series , Batman film series , Jurassic Park franchise , and Star Wars franchise. Internationally, The Fate of the Furious secured a release in 69 countries.

Moreover, it recorded the biggest paid previews of all time in Malaysia, Singapore, Venezuela, and Vietnam.
Although that's a new record for the franchise, the film debuted at number three behind Disney's Beauty and the Beast and local film Detective Conan: Crimson Love Letter —their robust second-weekend earnings blocked the former from taking the top spot, making Japan one of the few markets where the film didn't open at No.
Expectations were high for the film's performance in China, as its predecessor set notable records and went on to become the biggest film release there now the biggest Hollywood release. The film was rebranded in Chinese as The Fast and the Furious 8 to make clear its connection to Furious 7. This was achieved at 7 p. Factoring out online ticketing surcharges, the total comes to a slightly less-hefty RMB 1. In India, the film secured a release across approximately 1,—1, screens 1,—1, screens fewer than its predecessor.
Like other Hollywood releases, it was released in both 2K projections and normal projections, and dubbed in local languages such as Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. It is the first international film to be dubbed into the Kannada language.
Despite clashing with local film Begum Jaan , analysts believe the two films will not affect each other's performance, as they appeal to distinct moviegoers. Gabrielle Sebben. Georin Aquila.
