The much-anticipated Fast & Furious 9 trailer is here, and it has sent our emotions into overdrive.
The first-look footage gave fans a glimpse at what Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto and the rest of his crew will be up to in the franchise’s ninth installment (or 10th if we count spin-off Hobbs and Shaw).
The epically-long trailer includes its own post-credits sequence – only the Fast Saga can get away with that!–where long-dead character Han Lue (Sung Kang) is revealed to actually be alive.
There are plenty of other surprising moments, including Dom’s nemesis Cipher (Charlize Theron) recruiting his long-lost brother Jakob (John Cena) to take down the Fast Family.
Even Dame Helen Mirren reprises her role from the Hobbs and Shaw spin-off with an ominous cameo, warning: “There’s nothing more powerful than the love of family. When you turn that to anger, there’s nothing more dangerous.”
Have we mentioned that Dom swings his car between two mountains at one point, too?
The official full-length trailer was live-streamed during a launch event for the film called The Road to F9.
The event was part of a spectacular concert featuring familiar faces from the franchise, including Ludacris, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth, as well as newcomers Cardi B and Ozuna.
Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa created a touching tribute to late actor Paul Walker with their song ‘See You Again’ in Furious 7, while Ozuna and Cardi B will be both appearing in the new sequel for the first time, alongside the return of fan-favorite star Ludacris.
Tyrese Gibson and TV personality Maria Menounos hosted the concert, while the movie’s main cast members made guest appearances throughout the event, including Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, John Cena and Nathalie Emmanuel.
Fast & Furious 9 will be released in theaters on May 22.
