'F9' and Vin Diesel Celebrate Returning to Theaters With More Footage of the Rocket Car

Prepare to get more emotional over flying cars than you’d ever expect. Universal has released a new F9 promo featuring star Vin Diesel, who welcomes audiences back to theaters in a moving tribute to cinema, punctuated by new footage of the latest Fast and Furious movie and its rocket car. Because let’s face it, you’re here for the rocket car.

“For more than 100 years, there’s one place where we all came together to be entertained, to escape, to go someplace new: the movies,” Diesel emphatically says in the new F9 promo. And there’s only one place where we can see a car fly into space.

Come for Diesel waxing poetic about movie theaters, stay for the bombastic new footage from the ninth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise, which not only features the rocket car — which will seemingly take Dom’s crew to space for the first time — but a stunt in which a car swings around a cliff via hook and wire, like some kind of metal acrobat. It’s absurd, it’s ridiculous, it will move you to tears.

F9 picks up with Dom Toretto (Diesel) living the “quiet” life with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) when a specter of his past returns to bring him back into the game: his evil brother Jakob (John Cena). Also returning are Tyrese GibsonChris “Ludacris” BridgesJordana BrewsterNathalie EmmanuelHelen MirrenCharlize Theron, and Sung Kang as fan favorite Han.

Here is the synopsis for F9:

Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena, the upcoming The Suicide Squad). 

F9 sees the return of Justin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster. The action hurtles 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.
