A teaser has launched for the Fast & Furious 9 trailer ahead of its release and live concert next week.
The film, which will be in theaters in May, will get its next full-length trailer next week, on Friday, January 31. That same day, the studio will stage a concert titled “The Road to F9, something that will give fans an opportunity to celebrate the decades-old franchise in a unique way. The concert will feature the trailer’s big reveal alongside the cast of F9, but it will also feature a number of performances, including Cardi B, Wiz Khalifa, and Ludacris, who of course is also one of the stars of the franchise, so you gotta love the crossover there.

Fast & Furious 9 is being positioned as the penultimate non-spinoff in the franchise, with the plan being to wrap things up with Fast & Furious 10. That’s probably a smart move too, considering the critical response to Fate of the Furious (while positive overall) suggested the property might be starting to run out of fuel at this stage. Fortunately, Justin Lin – who helmed most of the best-received Fast & Furious movies so far – is back directing Fast & Furious 9, with Johnson sitting the film out ahead of a possible return in Fast & Furious 10. That should allow the movie to really focus in again on Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto and his family as they go up against whatever threat the world throws their way next.
Fast & Furious 9 will be helmed by Justin Lin, who directed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth entries in the Fast & Furious franchise. It stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron and Michael Rooker. Cardi B, John Cena, Finn Cole, Anna Sawai, Vinnie Bennett and Ozuna are also set to appear. Fast & Furious 9 is slated to release May 22, 2020.
