*The Fate of the Furious

Dom and the fam (minus the late Paul Walker) are back for another adventure. This time, Dom is seduced by a mysterious woman played by Charlize Theron and turns against the people he loves most. Judging by the trailer, we'll be seeing more of the same excitement, fast cars, and action scenes that we've come to expect from the franchise. Just be ready to suspend your disbelief.

*Cars 3

Everyone loves a good comeback story. Lightning McQueen is on a mission to prove to a new generation of race cars that he's still the best in the world. Things don't look so good for our hero, though, as this teaser shows him getting into a pretty bad crash. Then we're promised that "From this moment everything will change." Yep, you got us Pixar. We can't wait.

*Transformers: The Last Knight

What's better than cars? Cars that turn into huge robots and fight each other. Our favorite childhood toys are back for the fifth time on screen. Optimus Prime returns to Earth in search of a way to bring his home planet Cybertron back to life. This trailer shows us all the essential Michael Bay-isms that are the franchise's trademarks, but we do get one surprise: there's a quick scene where Optimus Prime and Bumblebee are duking it out. Say it isn't so!

*xXxReturn of Xander Cage

No, you're not seeing double. Vin Diesel really is starring in another action sequel next year. This time, he's reprising the role of extreme athlete-turned-spy Xander Cage. He's racing against time versus a villain played by Donnie Yen to recover a powerful weapon. He recruits a rag-tag group of fellow thrill-seekers to get the job done. Considering that Cage drove a Chevrolet Corvette C5 off a bridge in the first few minutes of the original movie, we can likely expect more automotive stunt work in this one.

*The Lego Batman Movie

One of the highlights of 2014's The Lego Movie was the super serious but totally hilarious Batman. Now, the cubed crusader is getting his own big screen turn where he has to stop crime while raising a boy he adopted. What does this movie mean for us car guys? That awesome Batmobile/plane that we'll be able to assemble for ourselves.
