Fast & Furious 9 trailer: The only 4 minutes of the film you’ll need to watch
Universal Pictures has dropped the first full trailer for Fast and Furious 9, the newest installment in its multi-billion-dollar franchise. It’s practically 4 full minutes of all the ridiculously over-the-top mayhem we have come to count on from Domininc Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his merry band of badass misfits. And no marvel: Director Justin Lin is again on board, who helmed 2006’s Tokyo Drift and the subsequent three installments earlier than passing the baton to James Wan for Furious 7.
Fast and Furious 9 is the sequel to 2017’s The Fate of the Furious, through which Dom is coerced into the following the orders of a cyberterrorist named Cipher (Charlize Theron). Over the course of a really convoluted plot, Dom discovers his former lover, DSS agent Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky) bore him a son. Elena would not survive the film, however the boy does. And of course, Dom and firm find yourself saving the day.
News of a deliberate ninth and tenth film to full the franchise broke again in 2016, with F&F9 initially slated for an April 2019 launch. It was rescheduled for this yr to make room for the 2019 spinoff film, Hobbs and Shaw, starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Stratham in the title roles. There have been already rumors of pressure between Johnson and Diesel on the set of The Fate of the Furious, and the delay on the ninth film prompted a bitter outburst on Instagram by co-star Tyrese Gibson, who performs staff member Roman Pearce in the franchise.
This ninth installment pits Dom and his crew in opposition to a grasp thief, murderer and high-performance driver who simply occurs to be Dom’s youthful brother, Jakob (John Cena). As the trailer opens, we see Dom dwelling a quiet, bucolic existence, elevating his son Brian along with his spouse Letty’s (Michelle Rodriguez) assist. “I used to live my life a quarter mile at a time,” he says in a voiceover. “But things change. I’m a father now.” Alas, issues should not going to stay peaceable for lengthy: “No matter how fast you are, no one outruns their past. And mine just caught up to me.”
And who’s egging Jakob on? None apart from F&F8‘s felony mastermind Cipher. She desires revenge after Dom foiled her authentic plans, and assures Jakob that he’s smarter and stronger than Dom—though she wonders if Jakob might ever carry himself to kill his older brother, which she, of course, is greater than keen to do. We get a glimpse of Magdalene Shaw (Helen Mirren), mom to Deckard and Owen, who gives some pearls of knowledge. “There’s nothing more powerful than the love of family,” she says. “But you turn that into anger and there’s nothing more dangerous.”
Naturally, there’s tons of property harm, fisticuffs, and death-defying leaps, and many of high-speed automotive chases and explosions, as a result of that is what this franchise is in the end all about: the characters and the wonderful stunts. We additionally get a Pontiac Fiero outfitted with a rocket engine, and a “magnet plane” piloted by Cipher. As one final shock, we see Han Lue (Sung Kang) greet his former colleagues. He was supposedly killed by Shaw manner again in Tokyo Drift. Hopefully there will likely be some rationalization for why he is nonetheless alive, however let’s face it: plot has by no means been the franchise’s robust swimsuit. F&F9 will most likely make about as a lot sense as its predecessor—in different phrases, not a lot sense in any respect. And followers would not have it another manner.
Fast and Furious 9 hits theaters May 22, 2020. A tenth and last film is deliberate for the franchise, for launch on April 2, 2021.
