Fast and Furious 9 F9: The Fast Saga reveals a chilling story of terror, murder, defense, which are now reopening known evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.
Fast & Furious 9 has actually arrived in certain countries in the world, but UK and US fans are among those still having to wait for its cinema release. The movie landed mostly rave first reviews and sped to a huge $162 million debut last month following its release in the likes of China and South Korea.
We don’t have too much longer to wait as the UK release was moved forward, in line with the US release.
|Movie Name||Fast and Furious 9 F9|
|Date Time||June 25|
Returning director Justin Lin confirmed in November 2020 that the movie was “officially finished”, praising his crew for “working through such unprecedented times flawlessly” in reference to *waves hands* ALL THIS going on.
Some Fast & Furious fans already know the answers to mysteries such as how Han is back, where Hobbs and Shaw are during the movie and why it took nine movies for Dom to mention his brother to his family.
But while the rest of us wait for those answers, here’s everything you need to know about Fast & Furious 9.
Fast and Furious 9 release date: When is Fast & Furious 9 out?
As mentioned above, Fast & Furious 9 is already out in certain parts of the world, but it’ll finally arrive in UK cinemas on June 24 and US cinemas on June 25.
The movie was delayed an entire year from its planned May 2020 release to April 2021, before being pushed back again to May and then June 2021 in the US. Fortunately, bar an extremely unfortunate series of events, those June dates won’t move.
Filming for the ninth movie took place between June and November 2019 in London, Los Angeles, Edinburgh, Thailand, and Georgia.
Fast and Furious 10 and 11 – are they happening still?
Originally, the plan was for the tenth – and supposedly final – movie to be released in April 2021. That plan was obviously changed after the delays and Vin Diesel revealed his wish that we actually get a two-part finale to the series, which is coming true.
Justin Lin will be back to direct and the movies will feature all of the main cast members for an extended last ride, as long as they aren’t killed off in the ninth movie. Diesel explained that it had to be two movies because of the sheer scale of them.
“Part of the reason why Fast 10 has to be broken into two different movies is that there’s so much ground to cover. There are so many places and so many locations in the world that we have to visit,” he said.
There’s been no confirmation of when the final two movies might film or when they’ll be released in cinemas, but don’t expect a double helping of Fast & Furious 9 in 2021. It’ll likely be at least 2022, or longer before the tenth movie is released.
Fast and Furious 9 cast: Who’s coming back for Fast and Furious 9?
Most of the main cast is back for the ninth outing, so that’s Vin Diesel as Dom, Michelle Rodriguez as Letty, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges as Tej, and Tyrese Gibson as Roman, among others.
After missing out on the last movie, Jordana Brewster is also back as Dom’s sister Mia, who is married to the late Paul Walker’s Brian. Excitingly, Brewster and Rodriguez will actually share a speaking scene in the ninth movie for the first time in the series.
“I’m really grateful that we got a chance to do that. Hopefully, we’ll continue to explore it because there’s so much to unearth there,” Brewster said.
Walker’s brother Cody has been speaking about a potential return for Brian, saying that “anything is possible” after Cody and his brother Caleb stepped in to finish his filming for Fast & Furious 9.
In fact, his character was glimpsed in the second trailer released in April 2021.
Director Justin Lin said that Brian O’Conner is “still alive” in the Fast universe and is “very impactful and very important” adding “I think that [in] Nine, you will feel the presence of Brian, for sure.”
Fast and Furious 9 plot: What’s Fast and Furious 9 about?
With the first trailer came the official synopsis for the ninth movie, which is as follows: “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.”
Diesel expanded, telling Total Film: “The theme that we’ve been playing with up until this point has been the family that you create with people from all walks of life, the family that is not blood.
“What makes the story of Fast 9 so fascinating is how that altruistic concept could neglect the family defined by blood. That’s where this story goes.”
Fast and furious 9 (F9) Review:
For a series that, at least for a while, used to be about nitro-injected street cred and grease-monkey car culture, the Fast & Furious movies really only have two gears. You’ve got fast and you’ve got furious. Stunts have gotten bigger, glossier, and faker, but even at their worst, they’ve always been speedy, dangerously so. And just as crucially, every utterance about a family out of Vin Diesel’s mouth has a ponderous solemnity to it. That’s the furious part. Over 20 years, the plots have detoured into globe-hopping spy nonsense — and these muscle cars have definitely hopped, sometimes with their own parachutes — yet the white-hot melodrama has skyrocketed in tandem.
Director Justin Lin, who perfected the formula with 2011’s deliriously dumb Fast Five, is back in charge after sitting out two laps, during which the production grappled with the untimely death of co-star Paul Walker and some intra-actor bitchiness. Lin’s Fast & Furious 9 feels like a rejuvenation. That’s not just the fumes talking. (It’s a thrill to be back in front of something big and loud.) The film is a return to principles, and if it goes off the rails into pure silliness — almost irredeemably at one point — there’s at least an ethos to it.
