Resident Hollywood megastar (yes he is one even if you don’t agree) Vin Diesel has dropped a new video on the net where he talks to the fans personally and welcomes them back to the theater going experience with some new clips from the long delayed Fast & Furious 9 or F9.
In the video, Diesel chats about how hard of a year 2020 was and also states why theaters are so important to the entertainment industry. To go along with the speech, Diesel showcases some new and adrenaline infused clips from the upcoming sequel which was originally supposed to hit last May before the pandemic threw a monkey wrench in that plan. Check out what Diesel had to say and peek at some new footage from the ninth installment below!
Returning cast members include Vin Diesel, of course, as Dominic Toretto, Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz, Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto, Tyrese Gibson as Roman Pierce, Ludacris as Tej Parker, Enrique Guzman as Simon Toretto, Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey, Charlize Theron as Cypher and Helen Mirren as Magdalene Shaw. New additions include John Cena as Jakob, Don’s estranged and very pissed off brother as well as Finn Cole, Anna Sawai, Vinnie Bennett, and Michael Rooker.
Let me also just say that I know these films get a bad rep from a lot of people and I think the movie going fan base as a whole is a little jaded at this point but I always have a shit load of fun watching these types of over the top action films and these movies are the reason why going to the cinema is so much damn fun. Are they ridiculous! You bet! Do they defy all logic of reasoning? Abso”friggin”lutely! Are they original? Oh hell no, but this is why the summer movie season was created. So we could sit in an air conditioned auditorium and gobble up popcorn while we watch some insane stunt work in action and they always deliver the thrills and the excitement and they make me feel like a kid again. For those 2 hours or so, these films make me forget about the real problems going on in the world and I’ll always come back for more. Change my mind. I dare you.
Like Diesel said…this is why we go to the movies. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
June 25th is the date to rev up the engines once again so check out the 2nd full on action drenched trailer that dropped a few weeks ago in the player below.
