Generally, they now surpass the two hours, most often for very good reasons. It is necessary that a film has the time to develop its history but also its characters and the relations that they maintain. And it gives us the opportunity to attach ourselves to them and to sympathize with their trials – or not, of course, according to their character. And it seems that Fast and Furious 8, which recently got a new explosive trailer , has, things to tell!
According to the site, Fast and Furious 8 would not be less than … 160 minutes, or 2h40 of time , information that has not been confirmed by Universal Studios. But if this is the case, then it must be believed that this opus – contrary to what the name of the franchise – counts take time! So yes, it’s true, 2:40 in is, it’s long but not necessarily so rare that in the movies . The feature films of 2h30 or more, there were some only in 2016, starting with Silence of Martin Scorsese or Batman vs Superman which, in its version uncut , almost 3 hours. But it is a record for the franchise Fast and Furious . The seventh opus, for example, was ” only ” 2:20 long. So we must believe that The Fate of the Furious has many, many things to tell.
