Official Trailer: "Fast X"
Not to borrow from Vin Diesel's character Dom Toretto, but at this point watching the Fast & Furious films is much like being a family. You either are in it for the ups and down, all the way till the end of the line, or you disown it and move on. Even with the pandemic, the last film F9 managed to pull in $726 million at the box office so seems most are in for the final two-part finale of the long-running series that first began with a focus on illegal street-racing for the first four films and then transitioned into heist and spying once 2011's Fast Five. A film that has redefined and reshaped the franchise into an over-the-top franchise that is now all about action and dumb fun while keeping the theme of family at its core to add some relative stakes.
Now, with the first of the two-part finale Fast X, director Louis Letterier will guide the team through their actions coming full circle as they face off against Jason Mamoa's new villain Dante, revealed in the new trailer to be the son of Hernan Reyes, the man whose empire was robbed by Dom and his team in Rio De Janeiro during the events of Fast Five. After spending 12 years masterminding a plan to make Dom pay the ultimate price, Dante will team up with twisted hacker Cipher (Charlize Theron), scattering the family across the globe in the process. Check out the official trailer below:
Fast X co-stars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, John Cena, Jason Statham, Sung Kang, Alan Ritchson, Daniela Melchior, Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron, Brie Larson, and Rita Moreno. It is set to hit theaters on May 19th.
