Upcoming “Fast and Furious” Movie to Explore Time Travel, Hints Commercials
I don’t think it’s necessarily any secret to anyone over the age of eight that the Fast & Furious franchise has a way of stretching the limits of science a bit. Sure, in action films, it is sometimes necessary to take some creative liberties in the name of keeping audiences checked in. However, this franchise takes that idea to an entirely new level as we have seen the cast do all sorts of crazy things from launching into outer space in a Pontiac Fiero to passing away and coming back to life.
I say all of this to relay the message that fans of the series can expect the unexpected even when the outcome is incredibly extreme.
With that, a user on TikTok by the name of @marleylovesfilm seems to have cracked a code hidden in the marketing material for the upcoming Fast X film. This code seems to imply something way crazier than the existing unrealistic stunt work that the franchise has brought to fans so far. That’s right, our host implies that the crew will be taking on time travel in the movie due out May 19th.
There are a couple of context clues that support this theory that otherwise seems to come out of left field.
First of all, a sneak peek that we have gotten from the set shows off DeLorean’s new release in the Alpha 5. For those not into 80s movies, the iconic DeLorean DMC-12 was the star of the Back to the Future franchise, perhaps the most famous pieces of media ever made about time travel.
Furthermore, our host points out that the tagline that is a common thread throughout most of the Fast X marketing material is “The end of the road begins.” If that isn’t a tagline for a movie about traveling through time, I’m not sure what it is.
Below, we get to check in with the TikTok that started it all. While the concept of time travel in a franchise that was originally about street racing might sound insane, it’s not something that we should put past the folks who are responsible for what we have seen on screen in the Fast universe so far.
