The latest trailer for Universal’s “Fast X” has been released, and it is the first of a planned series of two “final” films for Dominic Toretto and his team. It will be interesting to see where things go when you’ve taken a $6 billion action franchise about Los Angeles street racers all the way up into space?
“Fast and Furious” kicks off the ‘Fast and Furious’ saga with everything you remember from the previous films: supercharged set pieces, explosions galore, car races, familiar faces, Fast X new friends and the emergence of a raging new villain – played by Jason Momoa – with a secret vendetta. And, of course, we cannot forget to mention #family.
“Fast X” Those of us who just want to glimpse a glimpse of the franchise’s signature physics-defying action will also be able to see Dom Toretto at the wheel battling two helicopters simultaneously while driving into the sky.
It was like you wanted to return to the streets of L.A., you wanted to return to racing and what it feels like, you wanted to return to the cars you know as the Fast X franchise, Diesel told fans at the Fast X event Thursday at the Los Angeles Live Arena, during which he led a brief chant of his name (“Diesel, Diesel, Diesel”) before the nearly four-minute trailer was revealed. May 19 will mark the release of “Fast X” in theaters. The full trailer can be viewed here:
According to Diesel, there will be a one-minute version of the song that will be aired during Sunday’s Super Bowl.
“Fast X” co-stars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, and Sung Kang were also at the lavish event with the producer-star. During the presentation, they took a walk down memory lane and discussed their long tenures in the franchise, while teasering the upcoming film, “Fast X” the tenth in the franchise and the eleventh overall.
“Fast X” has been one of Hollywood’s biggest ongoing franchises for decades, so the series has seen plenty of public and private conflicts – the most recent example being last year, when longtime franchise architect Justin Lin quit “Fast X” a week into production, reportedly due to creative differences.
Lin’s name was conspicuously not mentioned during the “Fast X” trailer event, but trailers for the five installments he directed were played during the hour-long program that recapped the history of the Fast & Furious franchise. These included “Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift” (2006), “Fast & Furious” (2009), “Fast Five” (2011), “Fast & Furious 6” (2013), and “F9” (2021).
It is with great pleasure that Rodriguez spoke about the challenges of keeping the blockbuster franchise alive with seemingly unplanned candor in praising Diesel’s passion for the films.
The kitchen is full of cooks, so it is difficult to keep everyone happy,” she explained. “When you’ve got a franchise that makes that much money, everyone has an opinion about it, everyone’s looking for a way to cut corners, and everyone’s not willing to pay this one this much, or that one that much… but in the end, it all comes down to what the story is about. We are going to end up with nothing if we mess that dance up.”
Diesel was interviewed on the red carpet by Variety during the event, and he shared the comparison between creating the “Fast” saga and writing the Middle-earth classics by “Lord of the Rings” author J.R.R. Tolkien. In Diesel’s opinion, it is clear that Tolkien stopped writing after a while for a reason. “It is so hard to continue mythologies and keep them alive.”
The actor went on to compare Diesel to Jesus himself, jokingly thanked fans for risking their lives to see “F9” “at the height of a pandemic,” revealed cast members’ text chains that go “flying” during moments of infighting, and greeted Lin’s replacement, Louis Leterrier (“The Transporter,” “The Incredible Hulk”), in the audience in an effort to welcome him to the “Family.”
There is a new enemy in the form of Jason Momoa, who plays Dante, who has a blood feud back to the events of “Fast Five,” in “Fast X.”
It is in “Fast X” where Diesel’s Dom returns to lead his crew as they face a new nefarious enemy – Dante (Momoa), a man hell-bent on destroying the family that Toretto so dearly cherishes. You haven’t heard the last of it yet – there’s more to come!
It is evident that Momoa’s Dante is a follow-up to the franchise’s introduction of Jason Statham’s heel-turned-hero Deckard Shaw, who revealed to his brother’s hospitalization in the third film, “Tokyo Drift,” that he killed Kang’s beloved Han as revenge for his brother’s hospitalization as he waltzed into the credits of “Fast & Furious 6,” as he revealed that he had killed Han to avenge for his brother being hospitalized. If you have not watched “Fast Five” in 2011, here is a pro tip: Play it again.
In the trailer for “Fast X,” it is revealed that Dante is the long-awaited son of Brazilian crime lord Hernan Reyes, who was taken out by the Toretto crew in “Fast Five,” and who has been waiting 12 years for the right moment to exact his vengeance.
The plot of Dante’s plot will send Dom’s family scattered across the globe and bring old enemies back, including Charlize Theron’s Cipher, seen in the trailer brawling with Rodriguez’s Letty in the trailer. Brian, Dom’s 8-year-old son (Leo Abelo Perry), will also be caught in the cross-hairs of the plot.
It is time for Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, John Cena, Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren, John Statham, and Mia Wasikowska to return as movie fans in the next few months are eager to see Han Taylor, who just returned from the grave in Fast X, form a bromance with the man who tried to kill him in Fast Nine.
Directed by Louis Leterrier, “Fast X” stars Brie Larson as a new operative named Tess.

There is a new member of the cast, Brie Larson, who will play Tess, a rogue agent of the Agency, in addition to Alan Richtson, Daniela Melchior, and Rita Moreno as Dom, Mia, and Jakob’s Abuelita Toretto.
The idea of running used to be about winning. The stakes for undercover cops and robbers drag racing muscle cars and imports on the streets of Los Angeles had never been higher than they are now,” Dom says in the trailer, confirming that the stakes have soared since his crew’s days racing muscle cars and imports undercover on the streets of Los Angeles. There is a bloodbath in the streets today, and I am racing to stop it.”
This film was written by Justin Lin, Zach Dean, and Dan Mazeau based on characters created by Gary Scott Thompson, and is produced by Neal H. Moritz, Diesel, Lin, Jeff Kirschenbaum, and Samantha Vincent.
The Fast & Furious franchise is back with Vin Diesel and his Fast & Furious family.
The first trailer for Universal Pictures’ Fast X, the 10th installment in the blockbuster action franchise, was released on Friday.
In the big-budget sequel, Diesel plays Dominic Toretto once again, along with a cast of new and returning stars such as Jason Momoa, Charlize Theron, Brie Larson, Rita Moreno, John Cena, Jason Statham, Helen Mirren, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris. All of these names are seen in the trailer, as well as the cast.
A throwback to the late Paul Walker’s Fast Five movie is also featured in the trailer, reworking the events of that movie in order to create a new context: During that movie, Dom and his crew defeated the nefarious Brazilian drug kingpin Hernan Reyes on a Rio De Janeiro bridge, where they decapitated his empire. It is important to note that they were unaware that Reyes’ son, Dante (Momoa), witnessed it all and has been preparing a plan to ensure Dom pays the ultimate price for what he has deserved.
In this film, Momoa is introduced as a new antagonist, one who seeks revenge against Toretto after having been wronged by him in the past.
