Fast and Furious 9 Trailer Shows the Franchise Isn’t Slowing Down

Car Culture 59 January 31, 2020 by

After an impressive build-up, the Fast 9 official trailer has finally landed and it’s thrown up quite a few surprises. Flick the end to see the trailer yourself, or read on first.

The trailer arrived as part of an exceptionally improbable open-air concert in Miami. Featuring live performances from artists including the F&F’s own Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, the show was an hour-long build-up to the trailer release. It’s something which only the Fast and Furious franchise could carry off.

Coming in at nearly four minutes, Fast 9‘s teaser builds on what we saw earlier in the week, but dumps a couple of explosive revelations into our laps. First of all, it seems that Dom and Mia aren’t the only Torettos in the F&F universe. No, the clip reveals that the film’s bad guy is none other than Dom’s baby brother Jakob — played by, you guessed it, John Cena. For someone always touting how family is the most important thing, that’s one bitter pill to swallow.

Jakob enlists the help of Fate of the Furious villain Cipher (Charlize Theron), in some unexplained clash of the Torettos. Some sequences show the brothers fighting, others with them squaring off, but exactly what sets the street racer-turned-superhero against his underworld-linked little bro is unknown at this point.

The trailer also shows off some of the madness that runs through the film franchise. Through a variety of spectacular locations there’s plenty of crashes, explosions, punch ups, a jet engine strapped to a Pontiac Fiero, and a stealth plane with a magnetic grappling hook. You know, normal stuff.

But the clip does save one little treat until last. We won’t spoil it for you, but suffice to say that clearly not all that went down on the streets of Tokyo was as it seemed…

Fast 9 will reach cinemas on May 22, 2020 in the USA.
