On Tuesday, Fast & Furious franchise star Vin Diesel shared the poster for the upcoming Fast X film on Instagram.
The first poster for the upcoming sequel teases the “end of the road” for the popular franchise’s long run. The poster depicts Diesel’s character Dominic “Dom” Toretto praying while holding his signature cross necklace, with the phrase “The end of the road begins” written across the top.
The caption of the post said,
“We’re almost there. We can’t wait to share a taste of what’s coming. The Fast X trailer debuts worldwide on February 10th, 8a.m pacific!”
Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Jason Momoa, Michelle Rodriguez, John Cena, Brie Larson, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Nathalie Emmanuel, Scott Eastwood, Michael Rooker, Daniela Melchior, Alan Ritchson, Helen Mirren, Cardi B, Rita Moreno, and Charlize Theron will star in Fast X.
Fast X will be available on May 19th.
The upcoming film will be one of the franchise’s final instalments. Fast X is the first of two final instalments in the Fast & Furious franchise. The trailer for the film will be released on February 10, and the film will be released in theatres on May 19, 2023.
The plot of the upcoming film is being kept under wraps, but Diesel stated in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, “Just wait until 10 o’clock. Let’s just say that now that you’re aware that the studio is claiming that they won’t be able to cover all of the ground that needs to be covered in a single film, you can only imagine what’s to come.”
Vin Diesel confirmed to Comicbook.com that the franchise’s two-part finale films will be released “back-to-back.”
The first is scheduled to be released on February 23rd, and the second on February 24th. We had planned to release this film last year, before the pandemic. So I guess what makes this release unique is that Fast 10 has been in development and pre-production for a year. So I’m doing these interviews, which is strange because I have to return to Fast 9. I’m celebrating the release of Fast 9, but there’s so much more to be happy about.
Jason Momoa, Daniela Melchior, Brie Larson, and Alan Ritchson are the newcomers to the franchise. Momoa will play the antagonist, Dante, in the film. Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, and Scott Eastwood will reprise their respective roles in the film.Fast X will be directed by Louis Leterrie and is based on a screenplay by Justin Lin and Dan Mazeau.
Neal H. Moritz, Vin Diesel, Jeff Kirschenbaum, Joe Roth, Justin Lin, Clayton Townsend, and Samantha Vincent will serve as producers.
