See If You Can Spot the Pun in the New ‘Fate of the Furious’ Poster
I’ll be honest: I didn’t get the pun in the title of The Fate of the Furious until just now, when I got my eyes on the film’s latest poster. Take a look at it and see if you get it. (Maybe you got it already. If you did, sit quietly and give the rest a moment to figure it out.)
Did you spot it? Look at the top. F8, as in Fast and Furious 8. Now sound it out: “f-eight” becomes “fate.” Hence The Fate of the Furious.
Maybe I’m just a dummy and everyone else already realized this (a possibility I acknowledge is very possible), but still: This is brilliant. But then I expect nothing less from the Furious movies, the most consistently enjoyable mega-budget action franchise for quite a few years now. Here’s the official plot synopsis for the newest entry, the first conceived after the death of series co-star Paul Walker:
Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game—and the rest of the crew has been exonerated—the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Oscar winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before.
