The Fast and the Furious Legacy Trailer Goes Back to the Beginning
The first official trailer for the highly anticipated Fast X is set to release in just over a week, and ahead of that, a new trailer covering the beginning of the film franchise has been released.
The latest trailer titled the “Legacy Trailer,” does what its name suggests, and covers the original film, The Fast and the Furious, which was released in 2001. The trailer essentially cuts down most of the original film into a smaller form and acts as a video to show just how far the series has come.
At the end of the trailer, the premiere of the Fast X trailer (which is set for February 10, 2023) is teased.
Fast X is being directed by Transporter director Louis Leterrier, who took over the role from Justin Lin after Lin suddenly exited the project due to creative differences. The film is written by Lin and Dan Mazeau, with Lin still attached as a producer.
Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, and Scott Eastwood will reprise their respective roles in the film. The tenth installment will also feature the additions of franchise newcomers Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Daniela Melchior (The Suicide Squad), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), and Alan Ritchson (Reacher), with Momoa expected to portray the antagonist.
Based on the characters created by Gary Scott Thompson, the latest installment takes the family 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. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.
