We really don’t know what to make of the new F9 trailer or the franchise at this point because its straight up bonkers. That’s actually good in a way, because it’s been a while since we saw a movie that basically forces you to check your brain at the door and just enjoy what transpires on screen.
That is essentially the SOP you will need to adopt to watch F9, and the last several instalments of the franchise. The film series, which prides itself on ‘go big or go home’ is certainly doing that with every subsequent sequel and the F9 trailer proves no different.
Bringing you up to speed, Dom (Vin Diesel) has a brother, and his name is Jakob (John Cena) who is siding with the enemy. Cipher (Charlize Theron) is back and has secured the services of Dom’s brother to wreak havoc on him.
Although that remains the central storyline, we know there is a bigger plot at play. The high-powered magnets, a heavy-duty armoured transport, and a car rocket ship that is sent blasting off to space. The new F9 trailer also doesn’t address the elephant in the room – the return of Han Lue (Sung Kang).
Reprising their roles from the past series are Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Jordana Brewster. Also back are Nathalie Emmanuel as Megan Ramsey and Helen Mirren as Magdalene Shaw.
After a year delay, F9 will finally arrive in cinemas in end June.
