Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Picks July 11 For The Home Entertainment Launch Of Director F. Gary Gray's The Fate Of The Furious

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment will light it up on July 11 with a three-SKU helping of director F. Gary Gray’s latest installment in the “Furious” film franchise series, The Fate of the Furious.

The ARR is a zippy 88 days and box office receipts currently stand at $215.1 million.   Planned for release are DVD, Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack editions.

Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) are enjoying the good life on their honeymoon in Havana (actually shot on location in Cuba), which includes a spectacular street race sequence (what’s a Fast and Furious film without one?) and the introduction of Cipher (Charlize Theron), who promptly blackmails Dom into abetting her cyber-terror plans.

Of course this pits Dom against his fellow DSS team members and sets in motion a mano-a-mano conflict with Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) that dominates the bulk of the action.   No worries, things are patched up by the film’s end, however Cipher is still on the prowl and could rematerialize in April of 2019 when Fast & Furious 9 (tentative title) is slated to hit theatres nationwide.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeyBonus goodies common to all home entertainment release configurations include Straight Outta Compton, Law Abiding Citizen, The Italian Job), extended fight scenes and the featurette titled “All About the Stunts.”
