AceShowbiz - With "Going in Style" being released only a week earlier than upcoming "The Fate of the Furious", Warner Bros. decided to promote the comedy flick by making a spoof of the franchise. Several days after its release date, the comedy film released hilarious new posters designed in the style of the "Fast and Furious" movie series.
Posted by director Zach Braff on his Twitter account, the posters feature lead actors %cMorgan Freeman%, %cMichael Caine% and %cAlan Arkin% imitating the pose of "Fast and Furious" stars such as %cPaul Walker%, %cVin Diesel% and %cThe Rock%. Hilarious tag lines such as "Licenses Will Be Revoked" and "2 Slow 2 Grumpy" are added on the images.

The synopsis of the movie reads, "Played by Freeman, Caine, and Arkin, lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty. Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money."
"Going in Style" is currently screening at U.S. theaters.
