Nobody saw this coming.
What started as a gritty action flick following a group of Los Angeles street racers in the original The Fast and the Furious has somehow transformed into the biggest non-Marvel, non-Star Wars film franchise in the world.
Through its eighth film — The Fate of the Furious — the saga has grossed more than $5 billion and isn't slowing down anytime soon. A spin-off starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham — Hobbs & Shaw — and a ninth and tenth Fast and Furious film are all on the horizon.
Clearly, Vin Diesel, Johnson, Ludacris, Michelle Rodriguez and Co. are doing something right.
So, which is it?
