The final trailer for "F9," the ninth "Fast and the Furious' movie, was released on Sunday ahead of the confirmed arrival in theaters on June 25.
Yes, there have been a number of delays, three in fact, and in the trailer Vin Diesel, who plays the lead role of Dominic Toretto, has a message reminding us of the joy of going to the movies.
The rest of the trailer is filled with all of the usual action found in the franchise. There's explosions, fast cars that go soaring in the air, and lots of fighting. It's still all about family, which is highlighted when Sung Kang's character Han is shown to be alive. It turns out he didn't die in the third instalment of the franchise, “Tokyo Drift.” Strangely, it looks like he will be reunited with fellow "Tokyo Drifter" Sean Boswell, as Lucas Black is also set to star in “F9.”
There will be new family, too. For example, Toretto's brother, Jacob, played by John Cena. Jacob's pushed himself all his life to be faster, smarter, and stronger than Toretto—and now he's tasked with killing his brother.
But what about the cars? An earlier trailer showed a Bayside Blue R34-generation Nissan Skyline GT-R driving up to Toretto's house, but it's unclear who's driving the car. In the past, Brian O'Conner, played by the late Paul Walker, would drive Nissan GT-Rs in the series.
Other trailers showed a Dodge Charger Widebody, Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R, Noble M600, Pontiac Fiero (with a rocket strapped to it), Toyota 86, and a Toyota Supra. The latter features a bright orange finish reminiscent of the shade featured on the fourth-generation Supra driven by O'Conner in the original 2001 movie.
