Vin Diesel's 'Fast X': Returning cast, new members' looks unveiled
It's a Fast Family reunion time. On Thursday, Universal Pictures revealed the cast of Fast X, the penultimate installment in the Fast Saga, by dropping a teaser on social media. The teaser also signals that tickets are going on sale. The long-running franchise's final ride trailer will be out for fans on Friday, and the movie will hit theaters on May 19 worldwide.
Why does this story matter?
- We are entering the final lap of this action-packed race!
- The Fast & Furious films have evolved into a global action franchise since the first installment was released in 2001.
- The idea was conceived by a magazine article about illegal street racing, and it has ballooned into one of the most successful franchises of all time, in terms of box office collections.
Teaser confirmed John Cena and Jason Statham's return
The theme, "It's all about familia," takes the center stage in the second last installment too, and the teaser gives a glimpse of the star cast. The 30-second long spot confirms that wrestler-turned-actor John Cena and British actor Jason Statham are returning for the sequel. The movie is written by Justin Lin and Dan Mazeau, with Lin still being the producer of the project.
