Just moments ago the full, official trailer for F9 AKA The Fast Saga dropped and after watching it all I can say is “holy shift knob”! Universal is really throwing everything they have at this film. It really does look like the craziest entry yet in the franchise. It also notably seems to have much higher quality action by way of fight scenes, especially with female characters. The trailer teases a specific fighting sequence with “Letty” (Michelle Rodriguez) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) teaming up against some baddies. Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Tyreese Gibson also return with their trademark humor.
The story takes place at least 2 to 3 years after the events of the last film as this one picks up with Dom settling in to life as a dad, raising his son long with Mia. Obviously trouble comes brewing and the whole team aka family needs to come back together to battle a foe from Dom’s past.
Remember all those shots of John Cena from the set of the film? Everyone speculated that he may be the newest member of the team or some government agent sent to take Dom down. Turns out, he is actually a master super-thief assassin who also happens to be… Dom’s brother “Jakob”! Plot twist!
It seems that Jakob teams up with The Fate Of The Furious villain “Ciper” (Charlize Theron) to get revenge on Dom and his family. Beyond that this film looks like an epic montage of crazy car stunts that defy the laws of physics.
There is literally a scene in which Diesel’s character does what I can only describe as a “vehicular Tarzan swing”!
Dodge returns as the main product placement sponsor with their vehicles all over this film, including their newly revealed Hellcat Charger widebody. However, Dodge badged cars are not the only vehicles to make an appearance.
There is a rocket-powered Pontiac Fiero (yes, you read correctly) and we get a quick glimpse of the orange 2020 Toyota Supra GR spotted in the leaked set photos. At the time we speculated that the Supra might be driven by Cena’s character. Though in this trailer its revealed that the driver is none other than… Han! Yes, Han LIVES!
Is your mind blown yet? No? Then watch the trailer below, I’m sure that will do the trick.
