This year’s ninth chapter of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise is racing toward completion and release on the big screen. Hong Kong, South Korea, and Russia were the first countries to see the latest installment in the high-octane series, and the rest of the world will be able to experience the gasoline-scented action and thrills of “F9” soon.
The picture broke box office records when it opened in international markets, collecting $163 million in its first weekend and raking in more than $6 billion in total worldwide. With those kinds of figures, it doesn’t appear as though the film will be slowing off anytime soon.
The “Fast and Furious” films have been in production for more than two decades, and the latest installment promises even more outrageous stunts and heart-pounding chases than previous installments. The director Justin Lin, who previously directed the “Fast and Furious” films 3 through 6, returns to direct “F9.” Listed below is all we know so far about the nine-quel.
When Is the Release Date for F9?
Since its inception about two years ago, the “F9” film has been repeatedly postponed due to a variety of problems. The original release date for “F9” was set for the summer of 2019, however, that date has been pushed back to allow place for the release of the buddy comedy spin-off, “Hobbs and Shaw,” which will be released in theatres in the fall of 2019.
After then, Universal, the film’s distributor, announced preparations for a May 2020 release but was forced to postpone those plans once more due to the pandemic. Finally, the wait for American fans will be over shortly, as “F9” will be released in the United States on June 25, 2021, after years of anticipation.
Now that the United States has experienced a boost in vaccinations to combat the coronavirus, film studios are optimistic that more people would go to movie theatres this summer to see their films. With many public locations reopening and numerous limitations being lifted, Universal is expecting that “F9” will be as successful at the box office in the United States as it has been in other parts of the world so far.
Who Is Going to Be in F9?
Awaiting the release of the long-awaited sequel, “Fast and Furious” fans will no doubt be thrilled to see the return of their favorite characters, and they will not be disappointed. Vin Diesel, a veteran of the “F” series, leads the cast of “F9,” in which he reprises his role as protagonist Dominic Toretto.
Dominic has come a long way since the first film in the series — from running his own gang of criminals to becoming a fugitive on the run to becoming a kind of high-profile, gray-market mercenary tasked with taking down some of the most dangerous crime lords in the world — and he continues to grow in stature.
Michelle Rodriguez reprises her role as Letty Ortiz, the tough-as-nails mechanic who also happens to be Dominic’s, lifelong love. Since Letty’s alleged death, she and Dom have been through a great deal together, including her forgetfulness and the eventual restoration of her memories. The couple is unlikely to have any alone time in the newest picture, based on their past performances and appearances together.
Tyrese Gibson will reprise his role as Roman Pearce, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges will reprise his role as Tej Parker, Jordana Brewster will reprise her role as Mia Toretto, and Lucas Black will reprise his role as Sean Boswell. It goes without saying that WWE superstar John Cena has joined the cast as Jakob Toretto, Dom’s long-lost brother who has evolved into a master thief and assassin over the years. Charlize Theron will reprise her role as cyberterrorist Cipher, in which she will pair up with John Cena’s Jakob as the co-antagonist.
What Is the Story Behind F9?
The official synopsis for “F9” can be found on the official website for the film. It says the following: “Dom Toretto, played by Vin Diesel, lives a calm existence off the grid with his wife Letty and kid Brian, but they are well aware that danger lurks just beyond their peaceful horizon. That menace will once again push Dom to confront the faults of his past if he is to save the people he cares about the most.

A world-shattering conspiracy is being orchestrated by the most proficient assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s abandoned brother, Jakob. Dom’s crew must band together to foil the plot.”
The website also describes different places in “F9,” and the crew of the newest film is shown traveling throughout the world in the trailer. In addition to Central America and the picturesque capital of Tbilisi, Georgia, the cities of London, Tokyo, and Edinburgh are among the locales that have been highlighted.
“Along the road, 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,” according to the synopsis. Also worth mentioning is the fact that the “Furious” crew will finally be venturing into space, because, of course, they will.
Fans of the “Fast and Furious” franchise are well aware of how important Dom’s family is to him. There is no information available about Jakob at this time, but we can expect plenty of turmoil as Dom battles his long-lost brother — and seeing him team up with one of Dom’s most fearsome adversaries from the past is likely to add even more intrigue. When “F9” finally arrives in the United States, we can’t wait to watch how Dom and his crew handle this new set of problems.
Is F9 on Netflix?
Despite the fact that Fast and Furious 9 is not yet available on Netflix, there are other streaming services and platforms where we may view it. Many websites, such as YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, and others, are offering the movie for rent for $20 per month..
Fast Saga is returned after a long time, much to everyone’s relief. Universal has released a new trailer for F9, which is expected to open in theatres on June 25, 2021, following several delays.
For those who haven’t seen the first trailer, which was published more than a year ago, the new one focuses on the connection between Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his brother, Jakob (John Cena), and still manages to promise a madcap chase sequence powered by magnets. A major turn of events occurs at the end: after years of rumors, it appears that the Fast and Furious crew will be traveling to an unknown location.
To be fair, there’s a lot going on in the new F9 teaser, so you can overlook some of the more subtle details. This isn’t a franchise known for subtlety, after all. Despite all the chaos, the latest teaser is full of surprises for longtime fans of the show. You may have missed a few of them.
