So why is that this film so completely different? The trailers have actually painted a “Fast & Furious” film that appears acquainted, kind of according to what the sequence has been since “Furious 7.” Only this time we have Jason Momoa chewing the surroundings as our new villain. This is the place we will get into gentle spoiler territory, so for many who wish to go into the movie fully blind, flip again now. Leterrier wasn’t shy in saying flat-out that “Fast X” goes to go away us off on a cliffhanger, which isn’t one thing audiences are accustomed to with these motion pictures.
“It really ends on a cliffhanger. But I would have not accepted, I think no one would’ve accepted this, had we not gone all the way to the end of the franchise. What we’ve got, as we were on set, is basically understanding where this franchise will end. Then, because we know that, we’re able to not only create this cliffhanger, but also seed all the elements that we’re going to need to fully arc out this whole franchise. And on what we hope is going to be a very satisfying ending. Sad, but satisfying. Then, we’re able to do all that stuff, because we knew where we were going. If you don’t know where you’re going, it’s impossible. I never understand how movies can be greenlit without that. I’m like, okay, you’re heading towards a catastrophe.”
Leterrier, regardless of changing Justin Lin after filming had already begun, appears to have a fairly clear imaginative and prescient of the place all that is headed. Let’s simply hope it would not take Universal Pictures too lengthy to wrangle this huge solid once more to allow them to get cameras rolling on the eleventh and sure ultimate entry within the sequence sooner fairly than later.
“Fast X” is in theaters now.
