(WARNING: The following contains mild discussion of the shiny new trailer for The Fate of the Furious, and any plot SPOILERS that may be found within it. Proceed with whatever level of caution that suggests to you is wise.)

Now, of all the improbably successful action franchises out there, there are perhaps none more successful, or indeed improbably, than series. It, after all, managed to bounce back from a whole lot of fan disinterest (and whatever the hell Tokyo Drift was supposed to be) to become one of the most profitable action franchises out there.

And so, let the elaborate car horns sound, because:

The New 'Fate Of The Furious' Trailer Is Here, And It's Full Of Spoilers

Or, rather, it's full of one very particular kind of spoiler — the sort that offers some further context regarding the -played Dominic Toretto's apparent betrayal of his family. Specifically, it confirms that yes, he is indeed being blackmailed by 's character, and yes, he isn't any happier about it than his friends are.

Which, since precisely no one watching the first few trailers for the film sat there thinking "oh man, I can't believe Dom just spontaneously became evil," probably doesn't count as all that much of a spoiler, but there you go. , it seems, may not be all that mysterious after all, but its still likely to make an absolutely insane amount of money when it's released on April 14.

What do you think, though? Are relieved to know that Dom's definitely being blackmailed, or is that an entirely silly question? Let us know below!
