Title Musings: The Fast and the Furious 4

leave a comment »

Just came across some news at AICN

Seems the title for the upcoming third sequel to The Fast and the Furious has been shortened (or possibly will be) to simply Fast and Furious.

Honestly, I think this is an attempt to steer away from the number four in the title.  After some of the box-office blockbusters that were threequels last year and also were big-time letdowns (Spidey 3, Shrek 3, and Pirates 3), I’m thinking the studios are always desperate to leave indications of sequels out of the title.

I think in this case, it’s a weird move…and you know that people will still refer to it as The Fast and the Furious 4 in their conversations.  Fast and Furious just doesn’t have the same ring to it…and with both Vin Diesel and Paul Walker reprising their roles, it’ll probably feel more like the original anyway.
