Who stars in Fast & Furious 9?
The latest movie in The Fast Saga stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges, and Nathalie Emmanuel.
They return as franchise regulars Dominic Toretto, wife Letty Ortiz, and crew members Roman Pearce, Tej Parker and hacker Ramsey.
The follow up to The Fate of the Furious also stars the returning Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto, Dom's sister, and Sung Kang is 'back from the dead' as Han, who is still eating snacks.
Directed by Justin Lin, F9 features Oscar winners Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron, returning as Magdalene Shaw and criminal mastermind/cyberterrorist Cipher respectively.
The cast also includes Kurt Russell, Lucas Black as Sean Boswell from The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and wrestling legend John Cena, who plays Dom's younger brother, Jakob.
Joining the team, F9 also features Grammy-winning superstar Cardi B as new franchise character Leysa, who is "a woman with a connection to Dom’s past", and a cameo by Reggaeton sensation Ozuna.
However, there's no sign yet of Dwayne Johnson as Hobbs or Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw.
What is the plot of Fast & Furious 9?
F9 is the ninth chapter in the Fast & Furious saga, excluding hugely successful spin-off Hobbs & Shaw.
The franchise has so far earned more than $5 billion at the box office around the world, which is why Universal Pictures are so keen for it to have a cinema release.
Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is now leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger lurks just over their peaceful horizon.
This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most.
His crew joins together to stop a plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered – Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena).
Jakob says to Dom in the trailer: "You always say never turn your back on family, but you turned your back on me.
"Now your little family is in my world."
He also says: "I've spent my entire life in your shadow and now you spend the rest of yours living in mine."
And did we mention there's a 'rocket' car in the movie?
The trailer sees Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and Tej (Ludacris) blast off in a rocket-propelled Pontiac Fiero.
Tej's DIY 'spacesuit' is also held together with duct tape!
F9 also sees the return of Justin Lin as director.
Lin helmed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster.
Where was Fast 9 filmed?
As ever, the action hurtles around the world, from one exotic location and car chase to the next.
Fast & Furious 9 travels from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tbilisi in Georgia.
Filming took place at Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire, and high-speed sequences were shot on the streets of both London and Edinburgh.
Thailand was another location used for Fast 9.
The film crew also shot scenes of Fast & Furious 9 at Hatfield House, which featured in the first trailer with Dom and Jakob coming face to face in the mansion's Long Gallery.
On week 10 of location filming for the latest blockbuster in the series, Vin Diesel revealed on Instagram he was shooting "an intense scene" with John Cena at an "amazing location".
This location was Hatfield House, with Vin Diesel's video showing Lord Salisbury's family home behind him and the modern Renaissance water sculpture.
After driving up to the North Front of Hatfield House where an opulent nighttime party is taking place, Magdalene Shaw (Helen Mirren) tells Dom in the first full-length trailer: "There is nothing more powerful than the love of family.
"You turn that into anger and there's nothing more dangerous."
In his Instagram video shot in the grounds of Hatfield House in August 2019, Vin Diesel says: "We're on set here in Fast 9 and it is another amazing location.
"The locations in this movie have been incredible, from Thailand to LA and all through Europe.
"I'm doing an intense scene today with John Cena, who is killing his character. He's gonna blow you away when you see him in Fast."
Confronting Jakob in scenes filmed in the Long Gallery at Hatfield House, Dom tells him: "I came here to take you down, little brother."
Jakob relies: "That's your mistake."
