The crew is back for the 8th instalment of The Fast and Furious franchise. This is also the first film of the franchise to not star the late Paul Walker, who died in 2013. His character, Brian O’Conner was written out of the series, stating that his character had ‘moved on’. 

The beef between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson seem to carry on from their on-screen characters to real life, with sources stating that both men were deliberately kept apart during their press tour. In the movie, Diesel’s character, Toretto is manipulated by a mysterious hacker Cipher (Charlize Theron) who forces him to go against his buddies.
