It's rare to find a film series that actually improves with age, but that's exactly what has happened with the Fast & Furious franchise. Beginning as little more than a modern rip-off of Point Break, the heist series has become one of the most popular and profitable franchises in the history of cinema. The series suffered a major blow with the death of Paul Walker prior to the release of Furious 7, but that movie still managed to rise above adversity and elevate the series to new heights. Now the stage is set for Fast 8 to take that one step further.

However, as excited as we are for Fast 8, we still know very little about it. The film will hit theaters on April 14, 2017, and yet we still haven't seen a single trailer for the eighth installment in the long running franchise. Vin Diesel recently took to social media to confirm that the first official Fast 8 trailer will land on December 11, and as such, we've compiled a list of things we want to see when it finally premieres. Now let's get started with one of the most intriguing new additions to the Fast & Furious universe...

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron in Character

Quite a fuss has been made over Charlize Theron's involvement in Fast 8 over the last few months. Not only is her character, Cipher, the first ever main female villain in the entire Fast & Furious series, but she's also been described as a very deep character whose motivations will feel incredibly sympathetic to the audience. Theron established herself as a complete powerhouse in the action genre with 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road, and our hope remains high that she brings the same level of intensity to Cipher that she did for Furiosa. Despite all of that information, we still know very little about what truly drives this villainess, so we're anxiously waiting to get a proper glimpse of her in action.
