Fast X Film Trailer Takes Fast & Furious Back To Its Street-Racing Roots

Video / 9 Comments

Jason Momoa stars as the series' latest antagonist in an all-star cast that even goes back to its racing roots.

The final Fast & Furious film trailer has arrived: Fast X will arrive in cinemas on May 19 and is touted as "The beginning of the end of the road." That's because Fast X will be the first of a two-part finale for the saga that embraced car culture 22 years ago when Vin Diesel and Paul Walker first raced into our lives.

While the film series has been criticized for deviating heavily from the initial theme and becoming too far-fetched, stretching beyond the insane by sending a Pontiac Fiero into space in the last installment, the 3:42-long trailer indicates that Fast X will be returning to its racing roots.

Vin Diesel reprises his role as Dominic Toretto, joined by several members of the longstanding cast. Other superstars making a comeback include Charlize Theron, John Cena, and Dame Helen Mirren, but this film will also feature a new star, a final big bad boss in the form of Jason Momoa. However, we don't quite know what role Brie Larson will play.

As always, other starring appearances come from the film's vehicles. From the trailer, we know that Vin Diesel will drive his classic Dodge Charger, but there will be an abundance of metal, new and old, including Sung Kang driving a VeilSide-built-and-tuned Nissan Z and possibly even the electric Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept.

The trailer showcases a strong focus, as ever, on family, but instead of going to space for his family, Diesel will race for them, recreating iconic scenes from the original films of racers lining up alongside one another on public streets. Much of the filming took place in Los Angeles, where the first film took place, with residents protesting the influence of the Fast franchise on street racing in the area.

While we in the CarBuzz office have not been fans of the recent films, we can only hope that the final pair return to their roots enough to make the films as great as the originals and center around cars and car culture the way they first did when we fell in love with them.
