Here’s where you can watch the ‘Fast X’ trailer now!
Fast X is almost here. It’s been two decades of insane car chases and family bonding in the Fast and Furious, but now, with the announcement of its tenth installment, the franchise is drawing to a close. It’s a huge deal for fans around the world, as few movie franchises have been able to tap into the same level of pop culture ubiquity without relying on things like superheroes or outer space.
The trailer for Fast X promises to double down on all of the elements that fans have come to know and love: action, heart, unexpected twists, and an ensemble of some of the most entertaining actors working today. There are even a few Oscar winners thrown into the mix.
Since people have taken to posting their reactions to the trailer or making gifs and memes from it, you may be wondering where you can check it out for yourself. Well, look no further.
What is Fast X about?
Family, of course! We’re only half-kidding: all Fast and Furious movies revolve around the theme of family, and the lengths that ringleader Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) will go to to protect those close to him. As pointed out by the film’s villain, however, it’s difficult to protect family members when there are so many of them at risk.
The villain in question is Dante Reyes (Jason Momoa). He’s the son of Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida), the Brazilian official who was duped out of millions by Torreto’s gang in Fast Five (2011). Dante wants revenge for what was done to his family, and he’s going to exact it by targeting Toretto’s son Brian (Leo Abelo Perry).
This familial connection is commonplace for the franchise. Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) was the antagonist of Furious 7 (2015) because he sought retribution for what happened to his younger brother Owen (Luke Evans) in the previous film.
Who is in the cast of Fast X?
The cast for Fast X is arguably the most impressive ever assembled for the franchise. While notable stars like Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson will be absent (the former because he’s deceased, the latter because he’s feuding with Diesel), the rest of the names you’ve come to know and love will be present.
These names include Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Charlize Theron, Sung Kang, Nathalie Emmanuel, Scott Eastwood, Michael Rooker, and John Cena. Cardi B will be making a second cameo after popping up in the last film, and Gal Gadot is rumored to come back despite her character dying off in the aforementioned Furious 7.
If that weren’t enough, we will be getting some notable newcomers. Momoa seems like a natural fit after bringing fun energy to the Aquaman franchise, while Rita Moreno, of West Side Story (1961) and 80 for Brady (2023) fame, will be stepping into the role of Toretto’s grandmother. Brie Larson is perhaps the most intriguing addition here, as the MCU star has been tapped to play enigmatic family friend Tess. Both Moreno and Larson are Oscar winners, so we know the acting will be on point.
Where can I watch the Fast X trailer?
The Fast X trailer dropped on February 12 and has spawned dozens of memes and fan theories. There are death-defying action scenes and a real sense of drama for what looks to be the penultimate film in the franchise.
It’s also an extremely long trailer, clocking in at 3:43. Most teasers last about a minute, while standard trailers stay under three, so the fact that Universal Studios felt good enough to showcase nearly four minutes of Fast X mayhem speaks to their confidence in the final product. You can watch the trailer on YouTube or any other major video platform.
