The Fast & Furious franchise has captured the hearts of millions over the years. With the sad death of Paul Walker back in 2013, Fast 7 was certainly an emotional tribute. But as the first trailer is going to be released this weekend, I thought it would be great to provide you guys with some info about the film.
Within the two and a half minute preview of the film, we see a zombie car drop from a Cleveland parking garage, and also a few shots that were filmed in Iceland.
Due to Political tensions over the past few years, there has been a trade & travel ban with the United States for Cuba. Although most of the film was shot around the New York City area, Universal decided to take advantage of the recently lifted restrictions. As a result, Fast & Furious 8 will be the first film to be shot in Cuba by a major production company in 50 years.
To give you guys some information about the plot, the Cuban Clan are one of the main characters within the movie. So I would assume that their filming in the country would be to introduce viewers to this new character(s).

Despite the Fast & Furious franchise being well known for its street races, Fast 8 is set to focus heavily on the theme of family. Fast 9 & Fast 10 are reportedly going to be released in 2019 and 2021 respectively.
This is gonna be insane!
