Vin Diesel, frontman on the Fast and Furious franchise, has teased when the trailer for the tenth film will be released.
Going by the name of Fast X, this will be the first of a two-part ending to the story which has followed the life of LA street racers as they’ve turned into professional gun-touting performance drivers. Starting in 2001, the films solely revolved around street racing and the small-time drug dealing and theft within the area. Now, the team is travelling across continents in decked out, teched out cars with EMP detonators, more machine guns to shake a stick at, and physics-altering stunts. It’s safe to say, things have been stepped up to 11.
Now, posting to Instagram, Vin Diesel has promised that the next trailer is “less than 2 months away”.
This timeline hints at the trailer being released during the Super Bowl on February 12.
As you’d expect, the movie is hugely expensive to make with reports touting a $340 million budget. That’s similar to the likes of Avengers: Infinity War which came to $316 million.
So what are we expecting? Plenty of new faces such as Jason Momoa and Brie Larson, and maybe some faces from previous films. Charlize Theron’s Cipher will return, and of course the rest of the family will be there to send the franchise to its end: Michelle Rodriguez as Letty, Tyrese Gibson as Roman, Ludacris as Tej, Jordana Brewster as Mia, and Sung Kang as Han. It’s even been rumoured that Paul Walker – in CGI form – will be returning for the finale.
This will be a very interesting time for the Fast Franchise, and we’re excited to see how it’s sent to bed.
