Throughout the production of Fast 8, the cast and crew of the upcoming Fast and the Furious sequel have used their Fridays as a time to share some pretty great photos and video on the movie’s Facebook page. Some of these posts have been behind-the-scenes videos of a shot in progress; others have been footage of the cast involved in charity work in the various countries they have visited. Each post not only suggests the size and scale of the movie, but the impact of the film series on the entire world.

Stop what you’re doing; there has been a major development in #CandyAssGate. The ‘Fast 8' beef ignited by Dwayne Johnson earlier this week has gotten more intense now that Tyrese Gibson has thrown himself into the hot fire of candy ass drama. Gibson has taken a side in what appears to be a war between Johnson and Diesel.

Back when he was a full-time pro wrestler, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson built his reputation on his inspired mic work, and particularly the inventive way he insulted his opponents. Guys who dared challenge his WWE supremacy were “jabronis” and “roody poo candy asses.” Said candy asses would face the wrath of a smackdown, verbal and otherwise. He’d ask them a question, like “What’s your name?” then interrupt before they could answer. (“It doesn’t matter what your name is!!”) Or Johnson would tell them to grab something and stick it straight up their candy asses. (You may begin to sense a theme here.)

You’ve probably heard that Vin Diesel recently became the first celebrity to reach over 100 million likes on Facebook — a level of validation that mere mortals such as you or I may never know. A lot of those likes are the result of Diesel’s commitment to his fans and to sharing photos from his new films, like the latest pic from the set of Fast 8, which features your new favorite BFF pairing: Diesel and Dame Helen Mirren.

Few movie stars understand the power of social media quite as well as Dwayne Johnson. Whether he’s using his Instagram account to announce upcoming projects or putting together a teaser trailer for a brand new YouTube channel, the artist formerly known as The Rock takes every chance he can to connect with his fans and give them a chance to see what life is like for one of Hollywood’s most in-demand movie stars.

Last year, Helen Mirren declared her love for the Fast & Furious franchise and, in particular, Vin Diesel, who was pretty convinced that Furious 7 could win the Oscar for Best Picture. It looks like Fast 8 will have a much better chance of securing a nomination (at the very least) as Mirren says she’s joined the cast of the upcoming sequel. And now we patiently wait as the greatest friendship of our time blossoms, inevitably yielding a series of delightful photos featuring Mirren and Diesel.

Each installment of the Fast & Furious franchise finds some way to top its predecessors, whether it’s dropping cars out of planes or driving them in, through or across buildings. The development meetings for these movies must be filled with all kinds of crazy ideas, and you can see two of those concepts play out in a couple of new videos from the set of Fast 8. If you were wondering when we might see Fast & Furious on ice, that time is now (or next spring, when the film hits theaters).

“Daddy’s gotta go to work” was the moment of Furious 7, with Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs Hulking-out of his cast and picking up the biggest machine gun you’ve ever seen — matched only by the size of his insane biceps. According to Johnson, we can expect a very different side of Hobbs when he returns for Fast 8, and you can get your first look at the Furious favorite courtesy of the actor himself (obviously).
