The first full-length trailer for Fast & Furious 9 is officially here.
As expected, the franchise's latest installment ups the ante in a multitude of ways, including a whole lot more of the gravity-defying stunts that have become its trademark. But what really pops here is the cast, which includes the return of Charlize Theron as the villainous Cipher, and the introduction of John Cena's character, who just so happens to be Dom's brother and bitter rival.
But perhaps the trailer's most jaw-dropping moment arrived at the tail end, when Sung Kang's beloved Han shows up, despite his character having bit the dust in Tokyo Drift.
“It’s emotional — it feels like I’m going back to a family reunion,” Kang said prior to the trailer's release. “It’s a relationship that has been missing in my life since the last Fast.”
And instead of simply sharing the brand new clip on YouTube, the team behind this summer's Justin Lin-helmed sequel threw an entire concert in Miami to celebrate the event.
In addition to the trailer reveal, an assortment of musical guests took the stage to perform, including Cardi B, Wiz Khalifa, Ludacris, Ozuna, and Charlie Puth. Catch the trailer up top and the livestream of the concert below.
The sequel once again sees Vin Diesel reprising the role of Dominic Toretto. In addition to fellow returning cast members including Michelle Rodriguez and Luda, Diesel will be joined by an assortment of cameoing stars like Cardi B and John Cena.
Fast & Furious 9 opens May 22. Fans can expect a Super Bowl spot for the movie this weekend. Next April, Lin's untitled tenth entry in the franchise will be released. As previously reported, this has been teased as the final film in the main franchise, though it's likely we’ll continue seeing spin-offs for some time.
