“The Fast & Furious” Celebrates 15 Years With Return to Theaters
In celebration of its 15th anniversary, Universal Pictures announced this week that it will re-release The Fast and the Furious in a limited nationwide theatrical run in June.
On June 22, the film will hit theaters again -- the same day it released back in summer 2001.
The Fast and the Furious takes audiences back to the streets of East Los Angeles, where they first met the enduring core characters of the franchise, played by original cast members Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez.
Of all the films in the franchise, 2015's Furious 7 was the most successful, making more than $1.5 billion worldwide. The eighth film is due out April 14, 2017.
"All of us who make the Fast and Furious movies know we are part of a family that spreads all around the world," said series producer Neal H. Moritz, "And we are happy to invite our fans to revisit where it all began back on the big screen. While we are hard at work making number eight, we are thankful to take this moment and celebrate the original that started us off."
Advance tickets, available at Fandango, go on sale today.
