The Fast and Furious franchise is right up there for me with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars in terms of my favorite series. With F9 (ahem) fast approaching on June 25, Universal Pictures is prepping fans up with a unique marathon experience with a set of free nationwide screenings of the previous Fast films starting this Friday – April 30.
Over the next eight weeks, you can check out the previous eight Fast Films completely free each Friday. While the timeline of the series is not linear, the films will be screened chronologically so it starts off with The Fast and the Furious on April 30, 2 Fast 2 Furious on May 7, The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift on May 14 and so on.
The screenings will be held in over 500 US theaters, including AMC Theaters, Regal and Cinemark to start and expand to over 900. Regardless of when a theater joins the program the schedule will remain the same so a theater starting in the fifth week will launch with Fast 5.
