    VIN DIESEL, DWAYNE JOHNSON, JASON STATHAM AND CHARLIZE THERON FACE OFF IN THE MOST EXPLOSIVE CHAPTER YET OF
    THE ACTION FRANCHISE THAT LEAVES ALL OTHERS IN ITS DUST


    THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS
    AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL HD ON JUNE 27, 2017 AND
    4K ULTRA HD, BLU-RAY™, DVD AND ON DEMAND
    ON JULY 11, 2017
    WITH DIGITAL EXTENDED DIRECTOR’S CUT
    FROM UNIVERSAL PICTURES HOME ENTERTAINMENT


    Universal City, California, May 18, 2017 – The #1 action film in the world, The Fate of the Furious, goes full-throttle on Digital HD on June 27, 2017, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on July 11, 2017, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The latest exhilarating installment of the nitro-fueled blockbuster action franchise features a gripping new storyline, the most outrageous collection of vehicles yet, and an all-star cast of fan favorites and series newcomers. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, the close-knit crew criss-crosses the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing world chaos — and to bring home the man who made them a family. With more than an hour of never-before-seen bonus features and an Extended Director’s Cut, The Fate of the Furious will be the crowning glory of every fan’s collection.

    Now that Dom (Vin Diesel, XXX, Riddick), and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez, Avatar, Resident Evil) are married, Brian and Mia have retired from the game, and the rest of the crew has been exonerated, the globetrotting team seems to have found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron, Mad Max: Fury Road, Snow White and the Huntsman) lures Dom back into the world of crime and convinces him to betray those closest to him, the crew faces new trials that will test them as never before.

    The Fate of the Furious reunites Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson (Baywatch, The Other Guys), Jason Statham (The Transporter, The Expendables), Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson (Transformers, Ride Along 2) and Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges (No Strings Attached, Max Payne) in a heart-stopping new adventure that also features Charlize Theron, Kurt Russell (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, The Hateful Eight) and Scott Eastwood (Gran Torino, Suicide Squad).

    The director's cut is only on digital? Classy move, Universal. Not. Even though the digital copy is included with the physical Blu-ray, there is absolutely no valid reason the Blu-ray to lack the director's cut of the film.

    That's not how I read it, Jake. Did I miss something?

    "Director F. Gary Gray’s never-before-seen extended cut and the Theatrical release are available on all physical products (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, and DVD)..."

    That seems to contradict the big red sticker on the case cover: "Code inside unlocks Extended Director's Cut only on Digital."
