How many Fast and Furious movies are there going to be?

NBC/Universal entered the racing movie scene in 2001. We watched the movie in a Mountain View movie theater, a popular South Bay city that took part in quarter-mile racing events. Of course, these racing were unauthorized and illegal. Inexperienced racers lost control on city streets, resulting in major injuries and even fatal crashes. The Fast and the Furious movies use stunt coordinators to coach drivers and to maintain set safety. How many Fast and the Furious movies are there going to be?

Within the past eleven years, The Fast and the Furious movie franchise delivered five great films. The birth of an awesome racing movie franchise won consistent box office weekends. Fast and Furious movies are now becoming heist movies, adding a unique twist to the already cool racing movies.

A tweak in the plot design allowed Han to reemerge as a FF player. In Fast Five, a major spoiler in the twist ending reveals Letty is still alive. Fast and Furious keep dealing out twists and turns to entertainment fans. 

The Fast and the Furious movie arrived on the movie scene during the height of racing. Justin Lin and his team humanize Fast and Furious characters to make moviegoers like them. Movie fans think of the Fast and the Furious crew as family. The upcoming The Fast and the Furious 6 movie will be a mega hit. We expect to see the sixth film surpass $100 million in the first weekend come May 2013. 

Back in the days, the Sacramento Raceway's served up a quarter-mile strip, enabling the top racers to settle scores on who represented the best racers and who drove the fastest cars. Beautiful women flocked racing scenes, flossing their flawless bodies on top-of-the-line imports. The Fast and the Furious movies provide that nostalgic value, helping movie fans to reflect back on good memories.

The Fast and the Furious movies will reach seven films. Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are getting older. We believe they will stop making Fast and Furious movies after Fast Seven. Based on the success of the two movies, we may see another Fast and the Furious movie beyond Fast Seven. 

Do you ever think back to past Fast and Furious movies like your life? The FF stories have changed, but new players have emerged to place emphasis on the heist movie construct rather than the racing movie plot design. We predict there will only be two more Fast and Furious movie. 

If the two movies make a bundle, then Universal may discuss one last movie. This decision to enter an eighth will be based solely on Justin Lin, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker choosing to continue their services. The three tandem superstars are the heart of The Fast and the Furious movies. 

Box office success plays a major role in whether the movie studios intend to risk making another FF movie after the final two movies. The director and two main actors must return to keep the racing movie franchise on the top. In our opinion, Vin Diesel is the most important character in the franchise, though Paul Waker is equally as responsible in propelling The Fast and Furious movies on top of the Hollywood world. 

We'll have to wait and see how many Fast and Furious movies are optioned beyond the sixth and seventh films. Lucas Black could return again to star in another movie. The plot design would eliminate Han. Do movie fans want Sean and or Han. Want Dom and Brian to star again. Or is Dom and Sean a cool tandem? Keep an eye on future posts on Fast and the Furious Movies. Happy Fourth of July! Be safe.
