  《速度與激情8》近日在北美和中國上映后票房表現十分搶眼,片中的古巴飆車鏡頭激情四溢。在八部《速度與激情》里,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黨晉級成了為阻止核戰而努力奮斗的政府特工。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,范•迪塞爾和道恩•強森等人還會搞出什么大動作呢?

  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。

  [Warning: This story contains spoilers for The Fate of the Furious.]

  (警告:內含速8劇透)

  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于每部里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。那么問題來了:在未來的第9部中,范•迪塞爾和道恩•強森等人還會搞出什么大動作呢?

  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(多米尼克•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)關系進一步惡化。第二,重點來了,查理茲•塞隆飾演的邪惡黑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》系列編劇克里斯•摩根也表示接受這個意見,說如果自己“有什么好主意”,就會考慮把唐老大一行人送上太空?死锼拱腴_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!端9‖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。

  Imagine it: Cipher has holed up somewhere secret and broken into the mainframe of various nations’ and corporations’ satellites. Unless she gets as much power and money as she desires, she’ll make the world go dark. Maybe, even worse, she could figure out a way to draw debris floating in space towards Earth, utilizing the satellites as a series of magnets. (The Neil DeGrasse Tysons of the world would quibble with the hard science of this storyline.)

  想象一下:大反派塞弗躲在暗處,黑了很多國家和大公司的衛星,不得到足夠令她滿意的權力和金錢就要讓世界墮入黑暗;蛟S更糟糕一點,塞弗發現了能控制宇宙碎片的方法,利用衛星當磁鐵,控制碎片撞擊地球。(天體物理學家奈爾•德葛拉司•泰森斯或許會來商討其科學性。)

  Only Dom and his family have fought Cipher and survived to tell the tale, so who better to stop an asteroid, or a series of asteroids, from decimating the planet? Here, the motivating factor to stop Cipher wouldn’t need any further explanation; in Fate, it’s established that Dom is only working for Cipher to ensure the safety of his infant son, but if the entire world is at stake, that should be good enough for our heroes. And since Cipher spent most of Fate in a plane, it only makes sense she'll be in some sort of space station in Fast 9.

  在打倒塞弗方面,只有唐老大一行人有經驗有能力,所以除了他們,還有誰能去阻止行星撞地球呢?所以不必擔心,唐老大去阻止塞弗絕對是責無旁貸!端8》里的設定是唐老大之所以服從于塞弗,只為保護他年幼的兒子。如果是全世界受到了威脅,事情就更好辦了。再說了,塞弗既然在《速8》的大部分時間里都呆在一架飛機里,那《速9》里呆在空間站里也很合理。

  Of course, should the filmmakers and cast pursue this line of thinking, it leads to another inevitable question: What do you possibly do for Fast and Furious X? (You have to assume they’ll start employing Roman numerals in the titles soon.) Where could Dom and the family go after space? The best answer may be to expand the genre the Fast and the Furious series occupies. What was once a car-driven take on Point Break morphed into heist movies by the time of 2009’s Fast and Furious, and has since morphed into a James Bond-esque franchise. Taking the family into space pushes them into science-fiction, but in bringing them back to Earth, Universal Pictures could push them into another genre: action-horror.

  當然了,電影是否采取這一走向,取決于另一個沒法避開的問題:《速度與激情》系列第X部(第十部)要干什么(不得不說標題很快就要用上羅馬數字了)。唐老大一行人繼太空之后又要去哪?的答案或許是需要再拓寬一下《速度與激情》系列電影的題材了。2009年第四部《速激》呈現了一部《極盜者》式的盜竊題材電影,之后變成了詹姆斯•邦德系列。把主角推向太空,影片就變成了科幻類,而再把主角們拽回地球,環球影業就給速激開創了新題材:動作驚悚。

  Later this summer, the studio is going to begin building out its monster-movie universe with a reboot of The Mummy, in which Tom Cruise will not only tangle with an Egyptian mummy but Dr. Jekyll (Russell Crowe) himself. The intent is clear: Universal wants to turn characters like Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, the Mummy and the Wolfman into the equivalent of the Marvel or DC cinematic universes. Should that experiment be successful, why not go a step further, and crossover with theFast and the Furious franchise?

  今夏,環球影業將著力打造怪獸電影宇宙系列,推出新《木乃伊》。湯姆•克魯斯在其中將與從古埃及穿越過來的木乃伊公主和Jekyll醫生(羅素•克勞飾演)發生一系列故事。環球的目的很明顯,就是要以吸血鬼、人格分裂者、木乃伊和狼人等角色與漫威和DC的電影宇宙抗衡。這一嘗試能成功嗎?為什么不再進一步,把《速度與激情》系列也囊括進去呢?

  Of course this idea is ridiculous: Squaring off with criminal masterminds is one thing, but doing so with the Wolfman and the Mummy is entirely different. But even in the eight Fast and the Furiousfilms, the action is rarely less than insane, not to mention the operatic twists and turns of the character dynamics. These people have gone from rogue drivers stealing electronics to government agents working to stop a nuclear war. In 2001, when Vin Diesel and Paul Walker were racing each other so the former could evade arrest from the LAPD, facing off against Universal’s monsters would have seemed insane. In 2017, it’s a lot closer to reality. (The series’ longtime producer, Neal H. Moritz, also produces the 21 Jump Street films, which at one time was going to crossover with Men in Black. Anything can happen.)

  這樣想當然很可笑,和犯罪天才周旋是一回事,但和狼人、木乃伊那就完全是另一回事了。然而在8部《速度與激情》里,故事情節已走向瘋狂,更別提戲劇化的情節轉折和無厘頭的人物變化了。這些人已經從偷電子設備的無賴飆車黨晉級成了為阻止核戰而努力奮斗的政府特工了。2001年,迪塞爾為逃脫洛杉磯警方的追捕,和保羅上演了一出亡命追逐,那時看來,環球影業的怪獸世界著實荒誕。而到了2017年,瘋狂的幻想卻成為了現實。(該系列制片人Neal H. Moritz推出的《龍虎少年隊》系列曾與《黑衣人》系列實現過融合。真是一切皆有可能。)

  Think of it: This could sate Diesel’s clear desire to indulge in genre fare like The Chronicles of Riddick and Guardians of the Galaxy. Plus, it would be a hoot to see Dom and Luke and Letty battle the Wolfman. The logistics of how it all goes down might seem shaky, but a world where a hacker can take control of cars, missiles and submarines could easily be a world where monsters lurk beneath the surface.

  想一想:這樣做可以滿足迪塞爾沉浸在《星際傳奇2》和《銀河護衛隊》這類票房大賣的影片中的愿望,而且主角們大戰狼人絕對有意思。如此邏輯或許無理可尋,但是在一個黑客就能輕易控制汽車、導彈,甚至潛艇的世界里,怪獸藏匿其中也就不足為奇了。

  The challenge is set for F&F writer Chris Morgan, the rest of the crew and castmembers like Diesel. Topping the action in The Fate of the Furious will be difficult, and bringing the characters into a shared universe the right way would be even more challenging, as Dominic Toretto and his family must be more than pawns in a larger realm. It won’t be easy, but these movies thrive on the impossible. Truly thinking outside the box is the only way to top what’s come before.

  這些對于編劇克里斯•摩根、制作班底,以及迪塞爾等主演來說是一個挑戰。為今后的三部曲打造精彩的情節會很難,如何成功地把角色們帶入電影宇宙也極具挑戰,唐老大和他的家人在更大的世界中也不能只是反派的籌碼。而雖然困難重重,但是《速激》系列就是在種種不可能中成長起來的。打破常規或是再上一層的唯一路徑。
