The Fast and the Furious franchise remains in full force with the release of the first trailer for their ninth film, F9. But don't expect them to be returning to their roots. F9 takes a dramatic turn, leaning hard into super spies, assassins, and even rocket cars.



This time around, Dominic Toretto (played by Vin Diesel) is being chased down by none other than Jakob Toretto (played by John Cena), his estranged brother. Jakob, a master driver and assassin, has been tasked with killing Dom. If he wants to be able to keep up, he has to take racing to another extreme. And what is more extreme than a jet engine strapped to the back of a sedan?

F9 features a number of returning cast members, including Jordana Brewster, Tyrese, Ludacris, Michelle Rodriguez, Nathalie Emmanuel, Helen Mirren, and Sung Kang. The film releases on May 22, 2020, in theatres.

F9 is slated to hit theatres on May 22 of 2020.
