Universal Pictures has released the first trailer and a new colorful smoke-filled poster for Fast 9! I know the title of the film is F9, but it stands for Fast 9, and I just don’t like calling the film F9.
Anyway, as you might have expected, the trailer is packed full of crazy awesome action. It’s what we’ve come to expect from these films and the reason why we keep coming back for more. It looks like this next chapter is going to deliver another awesome, over-the-top movie that fans are going to love. It’s going to take the action to the next level! There’s also a big surprise reveal at the end of the trailer!
It’s also revealed that Dom (Vin Diesel) will be facing off with his brother Jakob, who is played by John Cena. Here’s the synopsis:
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, next year’s 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 Tblisi. 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.
Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Anna Sawai are all set to return to the franchise along with Charlize Theron as the villainous Cipher, and Helen Mirren will once again play Magdalene Shaw. Michael Rooker portrays a newcomer named Buddy, and Finn Cole, Sam Lerner, and Anna Sawai have been cast in unknown roles.
Justin Lin returned to direct Fast 9, which will hit theaters on May 22nd.
