The untitled eighth chapter of Universal’s action-car movie franchise has got an official launch date!

The movie has went on to gross more than one billion dollars world wide, also being the fastest reach the coveted spot- in just 17 days. After the sudden demise of Actor Paul Walker who played Brian O’ Conner in the movies, following a car accident in 2013, many thronged the theaters to bid a final adieu to their favorite actor. And the same can be hugely credited to its success worldwide.
