Now that the Fast and Furious has finally gone sci-fi, nothing is off-limits. And you see that in the first trailer for F9, the official title of the ninth Fast and Furious film. This time around they’re strapping rockets to cars.


There are also cars attached to airplanes. Oh, and the franchise is bringing back a character from the dead...again. Han Seoul-Oh, played by Sung Kang, who died in the third film, but was then back in the fourth (due to clever retconning) is back again. How? Why? We don’t know. But we can’t wait to find out.

Director Justin Lin (who did parts 3-6) is back to tell the final two chapters in The Fast Saga, and the whole gang joins him: Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Charlize Theron, and Helen Mirren. Plus, John Cena is Dom’s brother? Drama!

We’ll see what it’s all about on May 22 when F9 hits theaters.

This trailer alone gave me all the joy I had hoped a certain other 9th chapter in a long running saga would.
