Fast and Furious 9 (or F9 as it’s known in the United States) has been delayed for over a year until April 2, 2021 in the US over coronavirus concerns. The official statement above highlights the importance of safety and the fact that plenty of fans may not have been able to even access the cinema to watch it.
Fast and Furious 9 is squealing its tires towards a cinema near, you, eventually. In the world of cinematic franchises, the Fast and Furious movies (officially known as the Fast Saga) are unique. For a start, unlike most other members of the multi-billion-dollar box office club they’re not really sci-fi or fantasy – though 2019 spin-off Hobbs & Shaw did cross the line with its cybernetically-enhanced bad guy.
Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew of multi-talented drivers/tech experts return for Fast and Furious 9, the ninth of the series – or tenth if you include Hobbs & Shaw. Justin Lin, who directed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth instalments in the long-running saga – and is described as an “architect” of the franchise by Diesel – is back behind the camera, having made a detour to the 23rd century for Star Trek Beyond.
