This trailer for Fast & Furious 9 is certainly…something. There’s so much going on here that my brain can’t process the action. Any pretence that this series is based in reality is long gone – this is comic book stuff (cars in space!). You could say that it’s too fast and too furious for me.
Vin Diesel and his crew – Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel and Jordana Brewster are back. Helen Mirren, Kurt Russell Charlize Theron also return to add a touch of class to this ninth instalment of the now twenty year old action franchise.
When Vin Diesel started this franchise back in 2001 with The Fast & The Furious, he was a young buck in his early 30s. Now he’s 53 years old.
Fast & Furious 9 hits UK cinemas on 8 July 2021.
F9 is the ninth chapter in the Fast & Furious Saga, which has endured for two decades and has earned more than $5 billion around the world.
Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena, the upcoming The Suicide Squad).
F9 sees the return of Justin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster. The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tbilisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.
