Fans of The Fast and the Furious were confused when an out-of-character beef broke out between beloved stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Both are known as big guys with big hearts, and hearing The Rock diss Vin as a "candy ass" just didn't seem like the Fast Family we know and love.
Fortunately, the new #Fast8 — recently titled The Fate of the Furious — poster and trailer offer evidence that the Vin-Rock beef is just a cunning ploy to rev fans up for the upcoming spat between Dom and Hobbs in the movie.
Exhibit A: The new poster shows a crestfallen Dom being glared at by Hobbs along with the caption: Family No More.

Is it over between Luke Hobbs and Dom Toretto? It looks like our beloved beefcakes will have some hard choices to make when their friendships are put to the test. At least we can be fairly sure that Vin and The Rock are still buds IRL.
Exhibit B: "Family Will Be Broken"
The trailer reveals that Dom turns traitor on the Fast Family in Fast 8, and it's Hobbs specifically who's charged with spearheading the move to take down Rogue Dom. Early prediction: He'll be working with evil Charlize Theron just because they're holding people hostage or something — do you really think Dom Toretto would turn on his family?
