We should all know Dylan is a big Fast and Furious fan. We’ve been waiting well over a year since it was meant to come out. Not only is it a Fast and Furious movie but it is the return of Justin Lin in the director’s seat and he does all of the best ones in the franchise. And you’ve got my boy Han returning from the dead like a motherfucking ghost!
