Ask any racer. Any real racer. It don't matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning's winning. Especially if you make it to the end of this movie marathon. If the recently released The Fate of the Furious has you keen for some NOS-driven binge-watching, St Kilda's Astor Theatre is taking that urge to the extreme. From Saturday, July 15 through to the wee hours of the morning on Sunday, July 16, they're showing the Fast and the Furious octalogy in its entirety — all 16 glorious hours' worth.
This lengthy marathon will be arranged by plot chronology, not release date, so you can truly watch your favourite pseudo family grow from humble street racers to international super spies in order. Settle in for a casual eight films including The Fast and the Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Fast and Furious, Fast 5, Fast & Furious 6, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Furious 7 and, last but certainly not least, The Fate of the Furious.
It will be an explosive, all-day veg-out session, with multiple bags of popcorn and extra-large colas a must. Make sure to book early to avoid the neck-breaking front seats and get ready to live a quarter mile at a time — for 16 hours straight.
