Truth time: We are gonna wanna hurry back to the multiplex for this one.
What can I tell ya, they made a fan outta me, so I look forward to see the long-running Fast Saga roar back into movie theaters this summer, with its ninth blockbuster entry, F9.
Reason enough to get win the program with these COVID-19 vaccines, already (get one…and get out the way of people getting one), now we can safely go back to whichever movie theater is left ’round the community and watch Vin Diesel & Co. do their thing out on the big screen as intended, among people who enjoy a fun time at the theater, too.
F9 will find Diesel’s Dom Toretto leading a quiet life off the grid, with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and his son, little Brian – but we all know the keys are in the ignition, always.
’Cause Charlize Theron’s cyberterrorist Cipher’s still out there. And Cardi B’s pulling up as Leysa; a new franchise character, she’s a woman with a connection to Dom’s past (as, what, a teenager?). Plus, returning director Justin Lin’s introducing long-hair John Cena as Jakob, the world’s most skilled assassin and the highest-performance driver that Dom as his crew have ever encountered…and – where my Maury fans at – Dom’s forsaken little brother.
Drama of the highest octane.
They’ll need it. The action’s set to hurtle the aforementioned and franchise vets including Tyrese, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, and Sung Kang (!) all around the globe, from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tbilisi, not to mention such new heights. And surely, they shall also come across Kurt Russell and Dame Helen Mirren.
It’s a party and it is all happening at the movies on June 25.
So be grateful you can get a shot, get your vaccine on ASAP (make it part of that general wellness check-up you’ve been avoiding), and see you at the movies, everybody!
Don’t drive drunk.
