The Fast and Furious franchise is still going very strong over eight installments and 16 years. This is a pure testament to the ability of the filmmakers to keep finding new and fresh ways to revitalize a franchise that`s basically jerry-rigged to utilize muscle car lust.
It started as a relatively low-stakes L.A thriller flick focused on a crew of street racers who steal electronics equipment. Now, it has evolved into a globe-spanning, escalating set of excitements that feature stealing nuclear footballs and James Bond-level action.
Well those dinged-up Lambos definitely don`t come cheap. The first edition of this franchise in 2001 cost 38 million dollars to make. While Universal is not unveiling the budget for the newest installment The Fate Of The Furious, sources hit a budget at 250 million dollars.
