It’s Vin Diesel vs John Cena this time


Anew trailer of the upcoming film ‘Fast and Furious 9’ hit the Internet, which appears as an action-packed film, much like the previous instalment­s of the franchise. While the previous trailer that was released in early 2020 already showed that John Cena is playing Vin Diesel’s arch-enemy and brother Jakob, this new film clip ups the ante.

While Charlize Theron is reprising her role of cyberterro­rist Cipher, Helen Mirren is playing Magdalene Shaw, the mother of Jason Statham’s character Deckard Shaw. Michelle Rodriguez returns as Letty with Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto.

Justin Lin is directing the film. He previously directed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth instalment of the franchise.

Cena previously told ‘Entertainm­ent Weekly’, “There are countless ways to describe the upside of an opportunit­y like this. They have a way of weaving this family narrative and making it a truly successful and globally reaching franchise. They are also known for delivering the larger-than-life action and continue to outdo themselves, but they never shy away from the story and the narrative that they have developed.”

‘Fast and Furious 9’ was set to release in May 2020 but got postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new release date of the film is July 8.
