速度與激情9:《速激》系列路在何方


ANN@The China Post

《速度與激情8》近日在北美和中國上映後票房表現十分搶眼,片中的古巴飆車鏡頭激情四溢。在八部《速度與激情》裡,故事情節已走向瘋狂,主角們已經從偷電子設備的無賴飆車党晉級成了為阻止核戰而努力奮鬥的政府特工。為下一部《速激》打造精彩的情節會很難,雖然困難重重,但是《速激》系列就是在種種不可能中成長起來的。在未來的第9部中,範•迪塞爾和道恩•強森等人還會搞出什麼大動作呢?

It really is only natural that Dom and his crew head to space. 唐老大和他的飛車黨飆到宇宙也不稀奇。

One of the great joys of the Fast and the Furious franchise has been watching the filmmakers top themselves in each entry with car-driven action. The Fate of the Furious goes as far as having the good guys take on a Russian submarine so they can stop World War III. 《速度與激情》系列的一大看點就在於每部裡高能不斷的飆車場面,而《速度與激情8》更是上演了一出飛車大戰俄國核潛艇、成功避免第三次世界大戰的戲碼。

With two more films already announced, the question now can only be: What on Earth will Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and the rest of the cast do in the ninth film? 據悉,《速8》將會和第9部、第10部組成新的三部曲。那麼問題來了:在未來的第9部中,範•迪塞爾和道恩•強森等人還會搞出什麼大動作呢?

Now that you’ve seen The Fate of the Furious, you know a couple of big new developments: First, Dominic Toretto is a father, from his now-ill-fated relationship with DSS agent Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky). Second, and perhaps more importantly: Charlize Theron’s nefarious hacker Cipher avoided capture or death at the end of the eighth film. It’s hard to imagine Theron not returning in a future entry to cause some kind of trouble for Dom and his family. 如果你已經看了《速8》,那一定知道了這些重要進展:第一,唐老大(多明尼克•托萊多)晉升奶爸,與孩子的母親女警埃琳娜(埃爾莎•帕塔奇飾演)關係進一步惡化。第二,重點來了,查理茲•塞隆飾演的邪惡駭客塞弗在影片末尾躲過一劫,既沒被抓也沒有死,很有可能在未來的某一部中又給唐老大和他的家人帶來災難。

The easy joke is to say, “Well, now they have to go to outer space.” Even series screenwriter Chris Morgan acknowledged the suggestion, replying that if he “had something so good,” he’d consider sending Dom and friends to the stars. He hinted at an unexpected crossover there, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, with the Riddick series, but here’s another idea. For the ninth film, have Dom, Luke Hobbs, Letty, and the others go to space in an Armageddon-style situation. 有人開玩笑說:“現在他們該上太空了。”《速激》系列編劇克裡斯•摩根也表示接受這個意見,說如果自己“有什麼好主意”,就會考慮把唐老大一行人送上太空。克裡斯半開玩笑地暗示接下來會有出乎意料的風格轉變,可能要和《星際傳奇》系列接軌。不過在此之前,他還有一個想法。《速9》中,唐老大和盧克•霍布斯、萊蒂一行人要跑到太空去來一場世紀大決戰。
