by at .  Updated at . Comments

Sure, it was widely known that Furious 7 would not be the last chapter in the Fast and Furious series. And given the fact that Furious 7 has banked $1.158 billion so far at the international box office, it’s not hard to believe that Furious 8 will arrive sooner than later.

During Universal Pictures’ presentation at CinemaCon, they had a surprise guest make a surprise announcement to the theater owner association. Vin Diesel took to the stage and announced that Furious 8 would hit theaters on April 14, 2017.

You can understand why Universal is just a little bit happy with Furious 7. It is the first film in their history to cross the billion dollar box office mark during its initial run in theaters. Jurassic Park went over a billion, but only after its 3D re-release back in 2013.

Stay tuned for more as we get news on production details, when they start shooting and all that Fast and Furious goodness!

Furious 7 Quotes

[remembering the time he had with Brian] I used to say I live my life a quarter mile at a time and I think that's why we were brothers - because you did too. No matter where you are, whether it's a quarter mile away or half way across the world. The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room, right here, right now. Salute mi familia. You'll always be with me. And you'll always be my brother.

Dominic Toretto

Deckard Shaw: You shouldn't have messed with my family.
Dominic Toretto: I told your brother the same thing.
