The ninth (or tenth if you include Hobbs and Shaw) instalment of the Fast and Furious trilogy has had quite the struggle getting into cinemas as it’s battled with COVID-19 for over a year now. But as we edge closer to the release date of the film, which looks into the history of Dominic Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) character, we’ve finally had some good news.
UK viewers will be able to see it two weeks earlier than previously planned with the release date moving forward to June 24, 2021. This is great news for fans, especially after the film has been inundated with positive reviews recently.
This will be the craziest Fast film yet, with an incredible amount of stunts, action, and gravity-defying jumps, to the point where one stunt even takes some of the family to space. the synopsis reads like this:
“Vin Diesel’s Dom 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, the upcoming The Suicide Squad).”
We’ll see the return of a number of characters, including Han (Sung Kang), evil terrorist Cypher (Charlize Theron) and Magdalene Shaw (Helen Mirren), who we’re especially looking forward to watching her Noble, the British supercar.
This is going to be one hell of a film, so make sure you check it out at the movies when it’s finally released in US cinemas on June 25 and in UK cinemas on June 24.
