If you’re a Fast & Furious fan you’ll know what you’re getting after seven tyre-shredding instalments – but this one cranks up the firepower and pits the original law-dodging street racer Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his jet-powered Dodge Charger against the rest of the ‘family’, for reasons to do with a beautiful woman and an awful lot of deadly, car-smashing tech. In F8 you will learn:


WHO WINS A FIGHT BETWEEN A CAR AND A SUBMARINE?

Obviously, this depends who’s driving the car. If it’s The Rock, he might simply swat the sub’s torpedo aside with one mighty fist. Other insane face-offs in the new instalment include cops vs wrecking ball, wingsuit burglars vs plane, harpoons vs muscle car and a scene where hundreds of cars rain down on the streets of New York, in what might be the most destructive car chase of all time.


IS THIS THE END OF THE FAMILY?

This franchise is all about family – so to have the man who’s been preaching “I don’t have friends, I got family” for the past seven films turn his back on the Furious is a pretty ballsy twist. Has Toretto gone to the dark side? How will the ‘family’ survive?

DO YOU REALLY WANT A SELF-DRIVING CAR?

You might not, when you see what happens when baddie Charlize Theron hacks into the controls of every auto-driving car in New York – something the CIA recently admitted was possible, and a viable threat in a future cyberwar. When Dom Toretto goes rogue in F8, it’s all Theron’s fault – so what has she got over him? And how does Letty, Dom’s wife feel about this?  


IS HELEN MIRREN THE NEW QUEEN OF CRIME?

Who knew the woman who twice played Queen Elizabeth II was such a massive Furious fan? She collared Vin Diesel at a party, demanded a part, and appears in F8 as the mother of Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), the villain of the seventh film. Statham returns, kicking serious butt in a prison riot before joining The Rock’s crew to take on the bigger threat. So is Mirren a hero or villain? And how’s her driving?
