Fast X CinemaCon Trailer Puts the Whole Family in Action

Universal is already having a big year with the way The Super Mario Bros. Movie has dominated the box office, and with Fast X on the horizon, that year is probably going to be even better. With just a few weeks to go before the movie hits theaters, Vin Diesel and other members of the Fast Family took the CinemaCon stage to unveil an extended version of the final theatrical trailer that featured a number of sick new action sequences.

However, Vin Diesel did not initially come out of the closet. The presentation began with Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, and Sung Kang giving a bit of a recap of the series before Vin stepped out to promote not only Fast X, but its sequel as well.

“This summer is just the beginning of Fast X. And with all of your effort and with all of your love and the fact that you are part of our family, Fast X will continue. And after this explosive summer, I will have the privilege of standing in front of you guys again for Part 2 in 2025.” It was reported last week that Louis Leterrier, who directed Fast X, will be returning for Fast X-2, but this was the first time we’d heard of a 2025 release for the 10th Fast & Furious sequel.

Diesel also marked a milestone for the franchise. “Fast is now the longest running franchise in movie history…with the same actors playing the same characters,” Diesel said. And it’s true: no main cast member has been replaced by a different actor beyond Brian played by Paul Walker’s brother in parts of Furious 7 after Walker died while the movie was in production.

The CinemaCon extended trailer kicked off with Brie Larson’s character getting a bit of insight into the immense and dramatic story of Dominic Toretto and his #family from Scott Eastwood’s unnamed government guy. But Little Nobody believes her glory days are behind her.

“The days when one man in a car can make a difference are over,” he says.

From there, the footage went into full trailer mode, jumping between various scenes and settings. We went from a shot of Dom being transported as a prisoner in a caravan, to a scene of John Cena’s Jakob protecting Dom’s son, Lil Brian, in that cannon car, in that scene we saw in the last trailer.

The CinemaCon trailer also showed us more than one rather intense fight scene between Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Cipher (Charlize Theron) that was in the last trailer; in the extended version of this sequence at CinemaCon, they showed a part where Cipher almost got a kill. Letty with lasers in the middle of the fight.

Fast X roars into theaters on May 19.
