Charlize Theron loomed large as villain Cipher in a full trailer released on Sunday for The Fate of the Furious.
The 41-year-old actress sizzled in the trailer for the eighth installment in the franchise as she mixed beauty with danger.
The trailer also featured franchise veterans Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson.
Truly ridiculous and absurd scenes and situations are a staple of the Fast and Furious series, And earlier trailers made it clear that Fate of the Furious wouldn't be any different as soon as the submarine appeared. However, it turns out the craziness has spread to the topic of car hacking.
The hacker is Charlize Theron's character, Cipher, and she can apparently control any car in the world, and many of them at once. She uses this to great effect in creating giant rivers of rampaging automobiles through city streets, and waterfalls of cars flying off of parking structures. And if you look closely at these groups of vehicles, it is evident that she can even control older cars that have no automated steering or throttle capabilities whatsoever. We would ask how that works, but we know that's a silly question in the Fast and Furious universe. After all, this is the series that featured Dominic Toretto flying through the air over a freeway to catch Letty Ortiz and land on another car. And they survived. Your logic has no power here!
