We’ve got a new photo to share with you today from F9: The Fast Saga featuring Vin Diesel as Dom Toretto and John Cena as Jakob Toretto in what looks to be an intense situation. The two brothers obviously aren’t very happy with each other.
This movie was supposed to be released last year, but due to the pandemic and theaters being closed, it was pushed to May 28th, 2021. One thing is for sure, when it comes to these Fast and Furious films, Diesel is committed to the theatrical experience. In a recent interview with Total Film magazine, the actor said:
“I’m so committed to the theatrical experience, Obviously, I’ve dedicated my life to [the cinema]. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that we’re going to be there on May 28 with a movie that everybody is going to want to see together.”
Deisel also promises that it will be “like nothing you’ve ever seen.” Director Justin Lin returned to the franchise to helm the next couple of film and he went on to say:
“I know that the theme of family has become a drinking game for some of the fans. But when I woke up that morning and had the idea of exploring Dom and Jakob… that was always the reason to come back.”
Cena goes on to say that Jakob is the “greatest hurdle Dom and his family have ever faced. There is an old saying that blood is thicker than water. For me, having four brothers, I can say I have had the absolute brawls of my life with kin. It’s almost like it’s accepted.”
I’m still excited about this movie. I enjoy the films of this franchise and the over-the-top ridiculousness that fills them. I have no doubt that this is going to be a blast to watch. The big question is, will we actually really be able to see it in theaters on May 28th? We’ll just have to wait and see.
F9 also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Cena, Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron, Cardi B, and Ozuna. Here’s the official description:
No matter how fast you are, no one outruns their past. 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, next year’s The Suicide Squad).’
F9 sees the return of Justin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster. The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tblisi. 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.
If movie theaters are up and running by the time F9 is released, will you be headed to theaters to watch it?
