Alright, people, Fast and Furious is back with its 9th movie to the series; well 10th if you count Hobbs and Shaw. The Fast saga started in 2001 with The Fast and the Furious and slowly became an American movie hit. It created 9 movies of the main saga and is sure to produce more. With the Hobbs and Shawn spin-off movie and “rumors” of a female lead spin-off movie, this series looks like it will keep going until the car breaks down. See what I did there?
The series has been commercially successful and is Universal’s biggest franchise. As of 2015, the fast movie saga is rank as the ninth-highest-grossing film series of all time with a combined gross of over $5 billion. See, until the car breaks down.

We were granted an early surprise in the new trailer. I won’t tell you, you’ll have to see for yourself. But it was something that even had me like “what the f**k”. Besides the surprise, the movie looks good. Plenty of action and crazy stunts in cars that only a Fast movie can bring.
The only thing that caught me off guard is the fact that John Cena is playing Dom Toretto’s, Vin Diesel’s character little brother. It’s weird, but I’m sure they will make it work. I’m looking forward to the next installment of the series and what surprises it will bring.
There is no sight of either the Rocks or Stratham characters in the movie. However, they can have a reference in the movie by name; or the Fast 9 is going on at the same time as their movie, Hobb and Shaw. Fast 9 is scheduled to release May 22, 2020.
