Fast & Furious 9 Super Bowl Trailer Promises Return of the ‘Family’ — Eventually


F9 — the subsequent Fast & Furious film — obtained a brand new trailer at the Super Bowl, with the studio Universal Pictures seemingly holding onto the hope that it will probably nonetheless launch the movie on May 28 globally. At the identical time, Universal is being pragmatic about the reality {that a} delay may be very seemingly given the present velocity of COVID-19 vaccinations worldwide. That’s why the new F9 trailer does not finish with mentioned launch date, however simply “in theatres soon.” Will “soon” be this 12 months — or might F9 find yourself being pushed to 2022 if the pandemic continues because it has?

The 30-second TV spot for the subsequent Fast & Furious film opens with a household reunion in the Toretto backyard, the place everyone seems to be seemingly current: Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson), Tej Parker (Ludacris), Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster), Megan Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel), Sean Boswell (Lucas Black), and — by some means — Han Lue (Sung Kang), who died should you’ll recall in Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift.

Dom lays the voiceover for the new F9 trailer: “The world has a way of changing. But there’s one thing that always stays the same.” Wait, let me guess, the reply is household, proper? Surprisingly, no. Dom provides: “You miss the old life.” Letty asks in particular person: “Do you?” to which he replies: “Every day.” There you go, the narrative justification for F9 has been established. Can we get on with the motion already?

The F9 trailer obliges as if on cue, that includes racing vehicles, an aggravated Jakob Torreto (John Cena) — that is Dom’s long-lost brother — police vehicles flipping over, and a hypercar making a J-turn. The driver? A laughing Magdalene Shaw (Helen Mirren). Elsewhere, the returning villain Cipher (Charlize Theron) is winking. In the jungles some other place, Letty is doing gymnastics on motorbikes, and a constructing comes crashing down solely elsewhere.

And in what’s yet one more physics-defying stunt that’s now attribute of the Fast & Furious franchise, a automotive launches itself sideways via a espresso store and right into a truck on a parallel highway. Letty screams “Yesss!” in a special shot, talking for everybody watching the new F9 trailer.

In addition to Diesel, Rodriguez, Gibson, Ludacris, Brewster, Emmanuel, Black, Kang, Cena, Mirren, and Theron, F9 additionally stars Bow Wow as Twinkie, Jason Tobin as Earl Hu, Cardi B as Leysa, Anna Sawai as Elle, Michael Rooker as Buddy, Finn Cole, Vinnie Bennett, Ozuna, and Francis Ngannou. Justin Lin — the director on Fast Five — returns at the helm for F9, working off a script he co-wrote with Daniel Casey.

F9 is at the moment slated to open May 28 in cinemas worldwide, however that appears unlikely.
