With just two days until the premiere of the Fast X trailer, the lookback on the Fast & Furious franchise via new trailers has almost come to an end. Today, the franchise’s YouTube channel took a look back on The Fate of the Furious.
2017’s sequel to Furious 7 sees Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto having settled down with Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), only to find himself coerced into working for Cipher, a cyberterrorist played by Charlize Theron, who also appeared in F9 and will appear in Fast X and Fast & Furious 11. It also holds the distinction of being the second-only film in the franchise to gross more than $1 billion ($1.2 billion) at the box office, with the other being 2015’s Furious 7, which grossed $1.5 billion internationally.
Check out the Fate of the Furious trailer below:
Fast X is being directed by Transporter director Louis Leterrier, who took over the role from Justin Lin after Lin suddenly exited the project due to creative differences. The film is written by Lin and Dan Mazeau, with Lin still attached as a producer.
Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, and Scott Eastwood will reprise their respective roles in the film. The tenth installment will also feature the additions of franchise newcomers Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Daniela Melchior (The Suicide Squad), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), and Alan Ritchson (Reacher), with Momoa expected to portray the antagonist.
Based on the characters created by Gary Scott Thompson, the latest installment takes the family around the globe from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tbilisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.
