Jim Orr, Universal Studios President of Domestic Theatre Distribution, knew this would be a great way for lovers of the series to reminisce about their favourite moments while hopefully gaining new fans. In EW, he says, “The Fast films are all about family, and Universal wanted to find a way to thank our huge family of Fast fans around the country for their passion and loyalty over the past 20 years.”
Orr also acknowledges that this is the best way to bring moviegoers back to the theatre in a post-vaccinated America. “We’re grateful to our theatre partners for their help in making this screening series possible, and we are delighted to welcome audiences back to theatres to experience the wild Fast ride all over again. And we cannot wait to blow everyone’s minds with the release of F9 on June 25.”
Overall, the Fast and Furious series is about illegal drag racing, money heist, and espionage. The first film saw instant financial success and turned Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, and Michelle Rodriguez into movie stars overnight. Each movie gets crazier, and the stakes get higher. Characters have died and come back to life and disappeared and reappeared. It’s one of the most bonkers set of films in existence and a super fun time at the movies.
