The next installment of the car-racing cinematic franchise The Fast and the Furious is due soon. With a radical twist in the plot, expectations are high.

In 2015, Furious 7, the seventh installment in the car-racing cinematic franchise The Fast and The Furious, distributed by Universal Pictures, earned more than .5 billion worldwide, and it remains the highest-grossing Hollywood blockbuster in the Chinese mainland with 2.4 billion yuan (0 million) revenue from the box office.

So, perhaps, the franchise's fans are wondering if the latest film can break the record?

Well, the answer is probably “yes”. At least, that is the expectation.

On April 14, the saga, which has run since 2001, will hit silver screens again with The Fate of the Furious, its eighth production, being premiered simultaneously in China and the United States.
