Profit[edit]

Hi guys, I am going to delete the profit column. Profit is not gross - budget. That would not include costs such as marketing + distribution. Also gross does not include DVD/Blu-ray revenue as well. Because of this, profit is completely erroneous. I'll do the changes in a few days. If anyone objects, speak up. Yialanliu (talk) 02:43, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

Naming[edit]

Nice article. Good job. I'm just wondering, shouldn't it be named "The Fast and the Furious (series)"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by MrStalker (talkcontribs) 21:05, February 8, 2008

Thanks, I've considered doing this since it kept popping up at AFD, so I figured this would be a fairly acceptable substitute, no matter how the fourth film's article proceeds. I'm not sure about the use of parentheses, though. I don't think there is a standard. While there is Spider-Man film series, Batman film series, and Superman film series, there's also Pirates of the Caribbean (film series). Do you have any substantive opinion about why parentheses should be used? I think that both capture the general idea, though I guess I would prefer no parentheses because for examples like Batman and Superman, we don't call the overall series Batman or Superman. I think we've avoided calling them "Batman films" or "Superman films" because there are other films related to it, especially animated ones. For this film, there's a 1955 film, but it's not connected to the 21st century ones. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 01:41, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, the only thing I could find about is this, which says it should be named "Film Title (film series)". I don't know if the parentheses matters so much though, but if you follow the guideline by word I guess the article should be named "The Fast and the Furious (film series)". At WP:VG, where I do most of my contributions, we say that the disabmig. always should be as short as possible, hence just the "(series)". But that's our guideline so per WP:FILM it should be "(film series)". --MrStalker (talk) 09:26, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
My last point to make is if we actually reference the article itself in another article, we have to rewrite in the piped link to exclude parentheses. (Though I guess we could call it "the film series The Fast and the Furious...) Feel free to make the move with the naming conventions. Perhaps the other ones need addressing; I've just been accustomed to that setup, so I emulated it here. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 14:05, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
I think it's probably best to follow WP:NCF. Page moved. --MrStalker (talk) 15:22, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Future film[edit]

Also, I'm not sure about using {{Future film}} in the article, as it's technically not an upcoming film. It's a project in development with people figuring out what resources and how much of it to invest at this point. There are quite a few films that have been in development for quite some time, yet they can't truly be called "upcoming" as they don't get across the threshold to actually be made. Couple of examples off the top of my head are Logan's Run (2010 film) and Fahrenheit 451 (2009 film). —Erik (talkcontrib) - 14:12, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Fair enough. I'll remove the template. --MrStalker (talk) 15:14, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

I added a new section titled "Future" with some references. CollisionCourse (talk) 12:14, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Sequal name[edit]

CHRONOLOGY[edit]

Tokyo Drift would have to be the last movie because Han's character will be present in Fast Five.

JBLING316 (talk) 06:42, 26 October 2009 (UTC) I WAS WONDERING WHY THE 5TH MOVIE OF "THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS" IN THE CHRONOLOGY AREA IS AFTER "THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT"?? JBLING316 (talk) 06:42, 26 October 2009 (UTC) PUT IT THIS WAY:

         THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS (NOT IN JAIL)
         2 FAST AND 2 FURIOUS (NOT IN JAIL)
         FAST AND FURIOUS (IS PUT IN JAIL)
         TOKYO DRIFT (IS IN MOVIE)
         THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS:FIFTH GEAR(?) (IS OBVIOUSLY MOST LIKELY RELEASED FROM JAIL)

JBLING316 (talk) 06:42, 26 October 2009 (UTC) ACCORDING TO THIS CHRONOLOGY HOW CAN DOM GO FROM BEING IN JAIL AT THE END OF FAST AND FURIOUS TO BEING OUT OF JAIL DURING TOKYO DRIFT BUT YET BEING RELEASED(MOST LIKELY) FROM JAIL IN THE 5TH MOVIE OF THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS??JBLING316 (talk) 06:42, 26 October 2009 (UTC)Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page).

Remember they are breaking Dom out of jail at the end of Fast and Furious. He is on the run in Fast Five, and I presume he is on the run in Tokyo Drift because at the end he says "I got nothing but time". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.67.3.194 (talk) 05:24, 2 December 2010 (UTC)


In Fast 5 they drive Dodge Charger 2011. So, Tokyo Drift is set in the future? - Claudio —Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.234.139.66 (talk) 12:53, 11 May 2011 (UTC)


Tokyo Drift happens between 6 and 7 as Han was killed by D.Shaw (as seen on F7). The chronological order is definitely not correct. Qoushik (talk) 19:17, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Better Luck Tomorrow[edit]

Can people interested in the franchise please come to Template talk:The Fast and the Furious and discuss the appropriateness or inappropriateness of a link to Better Luck Tomorrow in that navbox?
Thank you, Amalthea 08:46, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Chronology[edit]

Has anyone considered the possibility that Tokyo Drift actually takes place not AFTER Fast and Furious, but DURING it? It would play out like this: The opening of Fast and Furious, with Dom, Han and crew are hijacking the fuel tankers. After they all split up, there is an undefined period of time until we rejoin Dom in Panama City. Who's to say that he wasn't roaming the world during this undefined time, and that the events of Tokyo Drift take place during this interval in the film? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.232.158.127 (talk) 18:56, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Once Again Han's character dies in tokyo drift. Han's character is in the fifth movie, if you check out the pics on set Han is clearly in the movie. He is also listed on wikipedia as starring in fast five. Therefore unless Han's character faked his death in Tokyo Drift, Fast Five must take place before Tokyo Drift.

QUESTION: Given the name of the film "Faster" and the appearance of actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in both "Faster" and "Fast Five", would it be of interest to mention that "Faster" is NOT related to this film series at all? I know I had some confusion about this on a personal level.

NinjaWTFBBQ: Tokyo drift is after everything. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 166.35.93.74 (talk) 05:07, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

The fast & furious is awesome! I wish and hope they don't stop making the movies. I am the biggest fan of the fast & furious film series! I know every movie word for word and the movies are so addicting I watch them over and over again!

-THE BIGGEST FAN ! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.213.198.2 (talk) 16:27, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

- Claudio Hi Folks, in Fast 5 they drive Dodge Charger 2011. So, is Tokyo Drift set in the future? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.234.139.66 (talk) 12:57, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

I added a comment saying the chronology should be removed because it seems people are assuming that Tokyo Drift is the last film. I would agree with that given Han's death. On one hand I feel this is how it should be but is that merely speculation seeing as Letty's character died in Fast & Furious, but she is known to be alive after the credits of Fast Five. I only bring this up because my comment I posted was deleted without so much as a reason. I would just like to know is it ok to setup the page as the timeline chronology? Or should it be setup by release? I do agree that Tokyo drift is probably set ahead of these films but I feel I am only speculating! Please let me know what you think. 199.245.32.210 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 16:47, 23 May 2011 (UTC).


F7 happens after Tokyo Drift as the crew attends Han's funneral on F7 and on F6 (post credits) its shown that D.Shaw kills Han. So, F5 > F6 > TD > F7. Qoushik (talk) 19:21, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Order of Films[edit]

It is mentioned in the section "Film Series in Chronological Order" that the films are not shown in order by release date, but how events actually occurred. This is false. The films are discussed in order of release date. Which one should be edited? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.160.63.107 (talk) 20:36, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation[edit]

About the disambiguation page of the films, on the disambiguation the 2013 movie is not yet referenced but here it is, its somewhat confusing. And since I never joined any wiki projects, I have no idea how to bring it to the disambiguation projects attention. < http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fast_and_the_Furious < Jasperwillem (talk) 03:25, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Lucas Black[edit]

Is there a source that he is returning for the seventh movie? DanielDPeterson (talk) 20:11, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

F&F6[edit]

This section reads exactly like the studio promo material. Can we clean this up so this doesn't look like a marketing department got in here? Blackfyr (talk) 21:14, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

The section was indeed plagiarized straight from the promotional material. I've removed the paragraphs. They can be restored if the details can be recapped in a neutral tone per WP:NPOV and with an inline citation. Erik (talk | contribs) 21:56, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Requested move (February 2013)[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: not moved no clear support Tiggerjay (talk) 04:46, 27 February 2013 (UTC)



The Fast and the Furious (film series)The Fast and the Furious – At this point, with a sixth and seventh film planned for the series, it is hard to see how the film series is not the primary topic of this title. I would move the disambiguation page currently at The Fast and the Furious to The Fast and the Furious (disambiguation), and move this page to the undisambiguated title. bd2412 T 12:56, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Comment: Worth noting, the disambiguation page views are far less than the film series page views. Most people are getting to the film series page in ways other than the disambiguation page. It's possible that when someone types the beginning of this term in Wikipedia search, they see in the drop-down menu of suggested topics what they want to click on and basically bypass the disambiguation page. I've also seen evidence that hatnotes are not as well-used as previously thought, so I do not think we need to change the status quo here. Erik (talk | contribs) 14:34, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose the name of the film series is very amorphous, many calling it the Fast and Furious film series or Fast film series, with "The Fast and Furious" being only the first film of the series. The box set image used on this article even says "Fast & Furious", not "The Fast & the Furious" ; Therefore the disambiguation page is best. -- 65.92.180.137 (talk) 22:08, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment this is an improperly formatted multimove, can someone correct that? -- 65.92.180.137 (talk) 22:08, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Chronology[edit]

Are we sure that 2 Fast 2 Furious takes place before Fast and Furious and Fast Five? It doesnt make too much sense for Brian to be an agent, not be an agent and start a garage and then be a federal agent again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.253.192.18 (talk) 18:08, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

After the events of the first film, Brian is no longer a cop. Customs come to him in Part 2, he strikes a deal to not go to jail, and he & Roman bring down the bad guy. Now ignore Tokyo Drift at this point, at least until where Diesel shows up at the end. And forget the reason why Dom showed up at the end of 3, which linked to the 4th film. We may have to assume that he is there because of the death of Han and that Letty, Brian, and Mia are back in Los Angeles with their records still clean. (Because of the events of 6.)

Now think back to the events of 4, Dom & Letty alone working the fuel truck job. He then ditches her, which sends Letty to Brian (NOW an FBI agent) in Los Angeles. He sends her undercover to Braga's crew. But apparently at this time (as told in 6) Braga was working with Shaw (baddie from 6) knew about both Brian and Letty and tried to have her killed. SPOILER ALERT! When Shaw realized that Letty survived the car explosion & hit in the 4th film, he tried to finish her in the hospital, but found out she was an amnesiac and had no memory. So he took her in and she became part of his crew. All while the events of the 4th film continue all the way up until the end of the 6th film. Everything from Han dieing in Tokyo Drift up until the end of Fast 6 and the post credits scene after Fast 6 ALL LOOP TOGETHER in one storyline of continuity. It basically makes 4, 5, & 6 be prequels, turning them into 3, 4, & 5 respectively. Fast & Furious 7 now continues from where Tokyo Drift & it's cut scene at the end of "Six" left off. I hope that I was able to make that as little confusing as possible. Aidensdaddy2k9 (talk) 21:42, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Michelle Rodriguez[edit]

The chart indicates that Michelle Rodriguez was in Fast Five. This is complete stretch. She appeared in a photograph that was in the film. She wasn't actually in the movie. ask123 (talk) 16:02, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Vince and Han[edit]

I can not find the name VINCE in the character table and also HAN, i think he did not showed up in Fast and Furious (4th movie)

Sorry, I was wrong Han did appear at the beginning of Fast and Furious (4th)

The Fast and the Furious (franchise)[edit]

It's a little confusing to users since the first film was titled "The Fast and the Furious", I think it needs the "(franchise)" for clarification. Lady Lotustalk 15:08, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

The Fast and the Furious (franchise) already redirects here, so anyone searching for that title will find this page. I have now specified in the lede that the first film was also titled The Fast and the Furious to avoid confusion, but since there is a 1955 film titled The Fast and the Furious, the 2001 film can not sit at this title unless it is established to be the primary topic of the term, over and above the franchise as a whole. bd2412 T 15:55, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

The result of the move request was: consensus not to move the 2001 film to the plain title; no consensus to move the franchise article at this time, per the discussion below. Dekimasuよ! 01:20, 16 December 2014 (UTC)



– More commonly referred to as Fast & Furious[1][2][3] Unreal7 (talk) 20:12, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Oppose since the first film is not the primary topic over the series as a whole. If the second proposed move in this multimove request is removed, then I'm neutral. Steel1943 (talk) 22:05, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
  • But there wouldn't be a primary topic if the two subjects have different titles. Unreal7 (talk) 22:07, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
  • The differences in the titles "The Fast and the Furious" vs. "Fast & Furious" are so minor that it doesn't successfully disambiguate the titles. If fact, if I recall, "Fast & Furious" could refer specifically to ... I think the 4th or 5th film in the series, but only those who have been following the series would know that. To most others, the two terms are synonymous, and thus, do not provide sufficient title disambiguation to be useful to most. Steel1943 (talk) 22:11, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Final addition, for now: this the first move in this request would actually be to move The Fast and the Furious to Fast & Furious per WP:PRECISE since the latter already redirects to the former. (So, this move request essentially is to deem the film series article a primary topic for only one of the two terms instead of both, then deem the first film of the series the primary topic of the longer title.) Steel1943 (talk) 00:21, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Update - changing the first request to just "Fast & Furious" since it already redirects there. Unreal7 (talk) 00:27, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose per Steel, the primary topic is the film series, not the first film. "Fast & Furious", "Fast and Furious", "The Fast and the Furious", etc should all refer to the film series, not the individual films. -- 67.70.35.44 (talk) 10:48, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose; where the franchise is more important than any instillment in the franchise, it gets the base page name. See Star Wars, Star Trek, Planet of the Apes, Jurassic Park, The Hunger Games, etc. bd2412 T 21:23, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

The Fast and the FuriousFast & Furious – The reason everyone opposed this move was because of the second request. If I ignore that request, surely this one can be made. Unreal7 (talk) 14:43, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Oppose since I do not see a reason to change the name of the title of this article about the series, given that almost all of the movies that are part of this series seem to have a different naming scheme. Per what I stated in the previous discussion, the series seemed to change its naming scheme around the 4th or 5th film, but now, it looks as though the more publicized name for the 7th film in the series is going to be "Furious" with no additional words. It's probably best to leave the title as is. Steel1943 (talk) 22:03, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Why was the "Future" section removed?[edit]

A guy named "BieberLover" made a pretty complex edit early in January this year that deleted the section on the future of the franchise. Was this vandalism, or was it done for a reason? 2601:C:A780:C8C:BC16:79A9:8354:33D2 (talk) 04:01, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Chronology format[edit]

Right now the in-world chronology is numbered, while the release chronology has dates. I'd say that it should rather be like vice versa. As movies are usually numbered by release order, but their internal chronology has more to do with the dates of their story. 178.48.52.73 (talk) 07:23, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

That would be pointless. The reason why the "story chronology" table is there is to show the in-world chronology. What would be the point of showing them in order of release date in a "story chronology" table if the release dates are already there to serve that purpose? 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 09:22, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

"Box office performance" numbers[edit]

So, I see that in the box-office performance section, periods are used to separate digits in large numbers, but sometimes, commas are employed as well. Shouldn't we use commas, since this is an American franchise? Packer1028 (talk) 22:59, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
