The first trailer for the next chapter in the “Fast & Furious” franchise, “F9” (yes, that’s actually the title), is finally here. Just when you thought The Rock redirecting a torpedo during a high-speed pursuit on ice was peak insanity for the absurdist franchise, the filmmakers went ahead and made Vin Diesel and John Cena biological brothers.
“F9” is shaping up to be the biggest and most bananas entry yet as the film hones in on a buff brotherly battle between Dom (Vin Diesel) and Jakub (John Cena) who’s being aided by “Fate of the Furious” villain Cipher (Charlize Theron). The trailer features all the trademarks of a “Fast & Furious” movie; exotic locations, over the top action spectacle, muscles, mayhem, and more as director Justin Lin (“Tokyo Drift,” “Fast & Furious,” “Fast Five,” and “Fast & Furious 6“) pushes the envelop even further.
The trailer’s got Mustang’s magnetized to stealth planes, a Pontiac Fiero with rocket propulsion, cars driving off a cliff only to grapple their way to safety, and, most importantly, the long-awaited return of fan-favorite Han. If you don’t believe the insanity, check out the trailer for yourself!
Starring Vin Diesel, John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Helen Mirren, Jordanna Brewster, and Charlize Theron, “F9” explodes into theaters May 22nd, 2020.
