The family is back, baby! Dom, Letty, Roman, Mia and the rest of the fast, furious crew’s return may have been delayed by a year of COVID-19, but we’ve got a new trailer for F9 that is packed with enough high-octane fuel to escape the orbit of this atmosphere which, by the way, is something that actually happens in the latest installment of the absolute craziest franchise in American history.
Strap yourself in because there’s no shortage of eye candy here to inhale, from the long-awaited return of a fan favorite to a hotly anticipated new addition to, yes, space.
Remember that first Fast and the Furious movie, in which Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker were after some stolen DVD players or something? That was 20 years ago but it feels like an entirely different medium of entertainment compared to the non-stop stuntfest that is the modern Fast Saga, which mostly exists for two reasons and two reasons only. One, to provide American filmmakers with an opportunity to top themselves in a series of windmilling action set pieces and drive your eyes ever further out of their sockets. And two, as a reminder of the importance of FAMILY, which we will all get to gather together and enjoy come June 25, when every red-blooded movielover will be fully vaccinated, in a movie theater, hooting and hollering as Ludacris and Tyrese exit the atmosphere.
