Rogers & Cowan’s own Vin Diesel and Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges returned to CinemaCon this year to take the stage at the Universal Pictures presentation to introduce ‘The Fate of the Furious.’ Vin Diesel thanked exhibitors in the room for the on-going support of the Fast & Furious Franchise. “Whenever I’m here and speaking to all of you, I do feel like I’m speaking to a bigger family and partners: You own the theaters and every time I come over here I can sense your excitement and expectations for the movie,” Diesel said.
The Fast cast later surprised the audience with an exclusive preview of the spring blockbuster The Fate of the Furious, opening in theaters April 14. Diesel also confirmed a previous announcement that the series would be extended to at least a tenth season. “This is the gift that keeps on giving for the both of us and the entire cast,” said Ludacris.
