The latest trailer of Fast & Furious 9 has been unveiled recently and featured a lot of intense, action-packed scenes. The upcoming movie picks up the events in The Fate of the Furious, with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) protecting his family from his estranged young brother, assassin Jakob (John Cena).
Jakob will serve as the main antagonist in Fast & Furious 9, tormenting Dom and everyone around him. What makes him more dangerous is that he's backed by criminal mastermind and cyberterrorist, Cipher (Charlize Theron), who was introduced in The Fate of the Furious.
The good news is that Dom's crew is back and they're going to help him in his intense battle against his brother. In addition, some of his old allies are coming back, including Han Lue (Sung Kan), who was believed to have been killed following the events of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
The latest trailer offered more details on what's coming in Fast & Furious 9, such as the return of Han. Previous teasers showed that Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) and Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster) recruited Han back to the crew, but the newest clip showed how he gets roped in again.
It looks like the crew has planned all of these as they try to go head-to-head with Jakob. Then, they went to Japan to get more back up and they eventually reunited with Han. Now that the Tokyo Drift crew is seemingly complete, all of them are ready to take down their common enemies.
Meanwhile, the trailer of Fast & Furious 9 also featured Tej Parker (Ludacris) and Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) dressed like astronauts while riding a car and strapped with rocket boosters. This likely indicates that the franchise is expanding the story -- potentially going to space this time around.
Diesel hasn't been sharing too much detail about whether the upcoming movie will be the final one for The Fast Saga. Despite the uncertainties, the franchise keeps on bringing more stories and spin-offs so there is a possibility that more installments have been planned down the road.
Originally, Fast & Furious 9 was for an April 2019 release date. However, the schedule was pushed to April 2020 and then in April 2021, before encountering another delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, it was confirmed the movie will premiere on May 19, 2021, in South Korea and on June 25, 2021, in the United States.
