New ‘Fast & Furious 8’ trailer features the Rock catching a torpedo in his hand

Yeah. You read that headline right.

You might, if you were impatient and dumb, think the best moment of the new trailer for the eighth installment of the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise, The Fate of the Furious, comes 10 seconds in, when the Rock catches a machine-launched grenade with his bare hand and nonchalantly tosses it the other way as though he were using a Chuckit with his pup.

But that is only a prelude to when he redirects a torpedo coming his way, with his hands. While on ice.

Like I said. You read that headline right.

The trailer also features Charlize Theron stating, in regards to New York City, “there are thousands of cars in this city.”

Somehow that, in this three-minute span that features fighter jets, people skydiving from plane to plane, prison riots, hacked cars, .50 calibers unleashed on city streets, ice tanks, and The Rock redirecting a torpedo with his bare hands, is the most implausible thing to occur.
