Vin Diesel Welcomes Fans Back to the Theaters in a New Video for FAST & FURIOUS 9 (F9)!

By: John M Jerva

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!

Official Synopsis: Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon.

This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob.

F9 sees the return of Justin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster. The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tblisi. Along the way, 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.

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.
