The Fate of the Furious will take almost three hours to include its multiple car chases, glaring from Jason Statham and a submarine, based on new reports.
IMDb updated its specifications for the film following a report from Cinemarx, a European website, noting that the movie received a runtime of just under three hours. If the report is accurate, that would make it the longest Fast and Furious movie ever. Furious 7, which was released in 2015, was two hours and 17 minutes, while Fast & Furious 6, released in 2013, was two hours and 10 minutes long. Polygon has reached out to Universal Pictures to confirm the run time and will update when more information becomes available.
At 160 minutes, The Fate of the Furious would also be one of the longest movies in recent history. Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Oscar-nominated film The Revenant was two hours and 36 minutes, coming in just four minutes short of tying The Fate of the Furious. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which was released in December, was only two hours and 13 minutes. Doctor Strange, Marvel’s blockbuster from November, didn’t even crack the two hour mark.
Continuing the trend of Fast and Furious movies, The Fate of the Furious will be bigger than the last, according to actor Vin Diesel. The movie will introduce a couple of new villains — including Charlize Theron as Cipher, the woman who leads Diesel’s Dominic Toretto to turn against his family — weapons and vehicles.
The Fate of the Furious will be released on April 14, 2017.
