“The Fast and the Furious,” the first movie in the famous franchise, will be re-released in a limited number of theaters to celebrate the film’s 15th anniversary.

The Rob Cohen-directed film opened on June 22, 2001, and starred franchise favorites Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster and the late Paul Walker.

It opened at No. 1 to $40 million in 2001, ultimately grossing $144.5 million at the domestic box office and earning $207.3 million worldwide.

With seven movies so far, the franchise has earned $1.3 billion at the domestic box office and $3.9 billion worldwide, its highest grossing title having been last year’s “Furious 7,” which earned $1.5 billion worldwide.

“Fast 8” is looking at an April 14, 2017 release date.

“All of us who make the ‘Fast and Furious’ movies know we are part of a family that spreads all around the world,” said series producer Neal H. Moritz. “We are happy to invite our fans to revisit where it all began back on the big screen. While we are hard at work making number eight, we are thankful to take this moment and celebrate the original that started us off.”

Advance tickets for the re-release are available on Fandango starting today.
