The LONG-AWAITED trailer for the 9th installment of the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise is HERE!
Debuting just over a year after “F9: The Fast Saga” was originally set to open in theaters, the new trailer for the latest installment in the 20-year-old film franchise showcases even more wild vehicular shenanigans deployed by Vin Diesel’s Dom, Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty, and the rest of the “Fast & Furious” family. (It’s embedded below.) Much of the trailer depicts an extended sequence involving a car with a massive magnet so powerful, it can apparently lift a car right from the road. We get a few more morsels of info about the highly antagonistic relationship between Dom and his brother Jakob (John Cena), who appears to have teamed up with Charlize Theron’s Cipher, the villain from 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious.” There are a couple more shots of Sung Kang’s Han, but no hints yet as to how, exactly, the fan favorite character has returned from the dead. Oh, and Tyrese Gibson’s Roman, and Ludacris’ Tej appear to blast off into space.
All of it is meant to launch what director Justin Lin calls “the final chapter” of the “Fast & Furious” saga. After directing four of the films back-to-back, Lin stepped away from the franchise after he felt he’d left it all on the table with 2013’s “Fast & Furious 6.” Diesel, however, persuaded him to return with the promise that he could give the franchise and its characters a proper send-off with “F9” and the tenth and eleventh films in the main saga — which Lin will shoot as a climactic two-parter, a la “Infinity War” and “Endgame.” [Variety]
#ICYMI: “F9” arrives in theatres on June 25.
