(Radio.com) Furious 8 will be hitting movie theaters on April 14, 2017, Vin Diesel announced on Thursday at Las Vegas' CinemaCon, a trade show for theater owners.

Having crossed the $1 billion mark less in less than three weeks after its opening as well as claiming the 7th highest grossing films of all time, Universal Pictures likely hopes to continue Furious 7's impressive momentum right into the release of Furious 8.

In a gesture to Paul Walker, his on-screen brother-in-law and real-life best friend, Diesel told the CinemaCon audience, "I swear to you and to my brother upstairs, we are going to make the best movie you've ever seen."

Moments before Diesel's announcement, the audience was shown the final scene from Furious 7, reports Variety. Read more here.
