‘F9’ Trailer: The ‘Fast & Furious’ Franchise Still Has a Few Surprises Left

Universal has just released the official trailer for the ninth installment in The Fast Saga: F9. Yes, the ridiculous naming conventions continue!

Be warned, this trailer packs more than one twist.


How is Han alive? Does it have something to do with Lucas Black’s rumored return (Update: nevermind, you actually get a brief glimpse of him in the trailer… looking like he’s aged 20 years) to the series after being briefly seen in Furious 7? Han doesn’t even have burn marks? Is it really Han or does he have a twin we never knew about? I need answers.

Otherwise, I called John Cena playing Dom’s brother about as soon as I saw the first glimpse of him in the trailer. It wasn’t exactly subtle. That said, I’m still extremely stoked for F9. After the disappointment of Fate of the Furious, this looks like it’s going to inject the franchise with some new life. The return of Mia and Han alone will get my ass in the seat. Could we also expect a cameo appearance by Brian (played by one of Paul Walker’s brothers)?

In addition to Vin Diesel and Cena, the film also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron, Sung Kang, and Michael Rooker.

Plot Synopsis:

Dominic Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena).

F9 hits theaters May 22, 2020.
