About This Quiz

Are you a "Fast and Furious" fan? Take this quiz to see how well you remember every "Fast and Furious" movie.

"The Fast and Furious" is a blockbuster movie franchise that began with the first movie, "The Fast and the Furious," in 2001. The first movie starred Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, and Michelle Rodriquez. And, despite the death of Walker in a fiery car crash in 2013 (he loved fast cars both on and off the set), which was an event that was at first predicted to kill any future movies, the franchise lives on with a total of eight movies currently having been released. Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriquez continue as stars of the franchise, but subsequent movies added other stars.

To date, the franchise has cost a whopping $1 billion to film, but they have earned over $5 billion at the box office making them enough of a moneymaker for Universal Studios for them to have at least one, but probably two, more movies slated for future release. It also seems that Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriquez will continue for at least the near future.
