If there’s one consistently inconsistent aspect of the Fast and Furious franchise, it’s that each film’s name follows a different format from the last. Sometimes, even a singl movie goes by two different names. Take the franchise’s sixth film, for example: The movie is called Furious 6 in its opening credits. But marketing, including the film’s post-release box art, calls it Fast and Furious 6 instead.
With that in mind: Presuming Furious 7 (which we should actually be calling Furious Seven, according to director James Wan) does well enough for Universal to greenlight an eighth film (and all early signs suggest it will), what, exactly, are they going to call it?
Let’s get the obvious options out of the way: Fast 8, Furious 8, and Fast & Furious 8 are probably all on the table. But they’re boring and predictable, something the Fast and Furious franchise has no interest in being.
It may very well be that the marketing machine forces one of these more conventional titles on the film—but here’s hoping whatever the eighth entry proves to be, its title is as imaginative and, hopefully, ridiculous, as its action sequences.
With that in mind, EW’s resident (The/2) Fast (Five) (and/&) (the/2) Furious (: Tokyo Drift, 6, 7, Seven) experts—Jonathon Dornbush, Samantha Highfill, Darren Franich, and Andrea Towers—have created a list of potential titles for the next film in the franchise.
And here’s a list of the titles already:
The Fast and the Furious
2 Fast 2 Furious
The fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
Fast & Furious
Furious 6/Fast & Furious 6
Furious 7/Furious Seven
