It’s been a long time coming, but the beginning of the end is finally here for the Fast & Furious saga. Just in time for the Super Bowl. Universal Pictures has dropped the first trailer for Fast X — the penultimate instalment in the billion-dollar action franchise.
The films have only upped the ante in stunts and star wattage over the years. Also Fast X looks to set a whole new standard for the street-racing turned near superhero-level action adventure saga.
Here is about the Trailer:
As expected, the action does not disappoint. But along with all the elaborate set pieces. We also get some hints at the story they’re setting up for the first half of the big finale. It seems Momoa’s antagonist has a connection to the series canon. As we see some reconnected flashbacks (including the late Paul Walker, whose character Brian O’Conner is still alive, though living his life off-screen. In the franchise) that show he was there all along during the Fast Five bank vault heist set piece.And if he was planning on taking that money for himself. It explains why he’d have such an axe to grind against Dom and the gang for making off with the cash.
We also get to see some of the new action concepts for this time around. With everything from a car with dual rocket launchers on its side; Diesel taking on two helicopters with nothing more than a muscle car. Even a Temple of Doom-style boulder ripping through downtown. There’s also plenty of fight scenes and gunplay, which makes sense, considering the who’s who of action stars they’ve assembled for the latest chapter.

The trailer shows Dom and his family facing a new threat in the form of Dante (Momoa). It turns out that Dante is the son of Hernan Reyes, the drug kingpin taken down by Dom and Brian (Paul Walker) in Fast Five. The kid grew up creating a master plan to avenge his father’s death from Dom and his crew.
