The new FAST & FURIOUS 9 trailer dropped today with a big bang via a concert before the reveal. The new preview left nothing for the imagination with two big reveals including showcasing probably the best action scenes from the ninth film in the franchise. John Cena joins the cast as Dom's younger brother, and Han (Sung Hang) who was killed by Jason Stathom's character in the sixth film returns from the dead somehow.
Dwayne Johnson is out of the circle of the family so enter the new muscle played by John Cena who's the villain along with Charlize Theron's Cipher. The trailer reveals Cena is Dom's estranged brother who's competitive nature tore them apart apparently.
The good news is Jordana Brewster seems to be back in action instead of being sidelined the last few films because she's now a mom. She and Michelle Rodriguez double team on a fight scene, and we hope for more.
Justin Lin returns to direct his fifth film in the long-running franchise. The action is ludacris as usual and defies gravity once again but fans enjoy those moments. So expect more of the same since the formula has been working for them this far.
FAST & FURIOUS 9 is in movie theaters May 22.
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.
The film stars returning cast members Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel and Sung Kang, with Oscar® winner Helen Mirren and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron. F9 also features Grammy-winning superstar Cardi B as new franchise character Leysa, a woman with a connection to Dom’s past, and a cameo by Reggaeton sensation Ozuna.
