Fast and Furious 9 (also known as F9) is a 2021 American action film directed by Justin Lin, who  also co-wrote the screenplay with Daniel Casey. Fast And Furious 10 is the sequel to Fast and  Furious 9 (2017), the ninth main installment in the franchise, and the tenth overall feature film in the series. The first film since Fast & Furious 6 (2013) to be directed by Lin and the first since 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) not to be written by Chris Morgan, F9 stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, John Cena, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Michael Rooker, Helen Mirren, Kurt Russell, and Charlize Theron.

In October 2017, Justin Lin was confirmed to return to direct F9, the ninth film in the F-series since 2014. Cena joined the cast in June 2019, and principal photography began that month, lasting until November and shooting in London, Los Angeles, and Thailand.

F9 was originally scheduled for worldwide release in April 2020, but was delayed several times, first due to the releases of Hobbs & Shaw (2019) and No Time to Die (2021), and then the COVID-19 pandemic. It was released in Hong Kong and South Korea on May 19, 2021, and is scheduled to be in the United States on June 25. The film received mixed reviews with praise for the performances, visuals, stunts, and Lin’s direction but criticism for its unrealistic action sequences and formulaic script. It has grossed over $292 million worldwide, making it the fourth highest-grossing film of 2021.

Fast and Furious 9 has finally made its debut on screens this year after a series of delays. It’s the latest adventure in the franchise that’s been thrilling audiences since 2001. Justin Lin directed Fast & Furious 4 and Fast & Furious 9, bringing us Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez back to the franchise.

Curious when F9 premieres? Wondering how to watch F9? Here’s everything you need to know about watching Fast & Furious 9.

Fast and Furious 9 release date: When is Fast & Furious 9 out?

As mentioned above, Fast & Furious 9 is already out in certain parts of the world, but it’ll finally arrive in UK cinemas on June 24 and US cinemas on June 25.

The movie was delayed an entire year from its planned May 2020 release to April 2021, before being pushed back again to May and then June 2021 in the US. Fortunately, bar an extremely unfortunate series of events, those June dates won’t move.

Filming for the ninth movie took place between June and November 2019 in London, Los Angeles, Edinburgh, Thailand, and Georgia.


In about a month, Fast & Furious 9 will zoom into theaters. After being pushed multiple times, F9 is set to premiere on Friday, June 25.


Right now, there are no plans to put Fast and Furious 9 on HBO Max. While multiple Warner Bros. releases have made their way onto the streaming platform this year, F9 is a Universal release, which means it doesn’t fall under the Warner Bros.

The latest Fast & Furious movie stars Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto, Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz, Tyrese Gibson as Roman Pearce, Ludacris as Tej Parker, John Cena as Jakob Toretto, Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto, Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey, Sung Kang as Han Lue, Helen Mirren as Magdalene “Queenie” Shaw, Kurt Russell as Mr. Nobody, and Charlize Theron as Cipher.


The current release plan for Fast and Furious 9 means it will hit theaters first, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be available to stream at home — you’ll just have to wait a little while. Because F9 is from Universal, it’s possible that it could become available to rent on premium VOD as soon as 17 days after it hits theaters. Under Universal’s deal with cinema chains like AMC, the theatrical window is shortened to just 17 days, meaning Universal films are available to rent digitally for $19.99 just two and a half weeks after they premiere.

Still, sources told Decider last month that Universal will let F9 remain in theaters longer than 17 days, since the window agreed upon by Universal and AMC is flexible. Stay tuned for an official digital release date for the latest Fast & Furious film.

When will Fast and Furious 9 be on streaming? When will F9 be on-demand?

We don’t know yet. Fast & Furious 9 is a Universal movie, and Universal Studios has a deal with AMC that allows the studio to release its movies on-demand—usually on premium-on-demand, meaning you’ll be able to rent the film for $19.99—after just a 17-day run in theaters.

However, it’s unlikely that Fast & Furious 9 will move to PVOD after just 17 days, given that it’s such a huge film. Sources close to the situation have told Decider that because the 17-day window is flexible, Universal plans to let F9 run in theaters exclusively for longer than just 17 days. However, an official digital release date for F9 has not yet been announced. The studio will likely make that decision based on how well the movie is doing in the box office. With vaccines rolling out, but also with variants of the COVID-19 virus on the rise, it’s still too early to say how comfortable moviegoers will feel heading to the theaters in June.

Given all of that, there’s a good chance Fast and Furious 9: F9: Fast 9: Furious 9: 9 Fast 9 Furious could be available to rent at home before the Summer is over, but as for free on streaming? Read on. It’s complicated.

Fast and Furious 9 cast: Who’s coming back for Fast and Furious 9?

Most of the main cast is back for the ninth outing, so that’s Vin Diesel as Dom, Michelle Rodriguez as Letty, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges as Tej, and Tyrese Gibson as Roman, among others.

After missing out on the last movie, Jordana Brewster is also back as Dom’s sister Mia, who is married to the late Paul Walker’s Brian. Excitingly, Brewster and Rodriguez will actually share a speaking scene in the ninth movie for the first time in the series.

“I’m really grateful that we got a chance to do that. Hopefully, we’ll continue to explore it because there’s so much to unearth there,” Brewster said.

Walker’s brother Cody has been speaking about a potential return for Brian, saying that “anything is possible” after Cody and his brother Caleb stepped in to finish his filming for Fast & Furious 7.

In fact, his character was glimpsed in the second trailer released in April 2021.

Director Justin Lin said that Brian O’Conner is “still alive” in the Fast universe and is “very impactful and very important” adding “I think that [in] Nine, you will feel the presence of Brian, for sure.”

Nathalie Emmanuel will also return as Ramsey and the first trailer also revealed that Lucas Black has reprised his Tokyo Drift role as Sean Boswell, after briefly appearing in Fast & Furious 7.

Following their spin-off movie Hobbs & Shaw, Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are missing out this time around… probably. There could be a surprise cameo in the works, but it seems unlikely.

Fast and Furious 9 plot: What’s Fast and Furious 9 about?

With the first trailer came the official synopsis for the ninth movie, which is as follows: “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.”

Diesel expanded, telling Total Film: “The theme that we’ve been playing with up until this point has been the family that you create with people from all walks of life, the family that is not blood.

“What makes the story of Fast 9 so fascinating is how that altruistic concept could neglect the family defined by blood. That’s where this story goes.”

There’s not much else we can tell from the trailer about why or how Han is back, but we have been promised that it makes sense. In addition to Han’s return, the new movie will make you “understand” the first movie more, apparently.

Since the end of Fast & Furious 8, Cipher appears to have been caught and is giving a classic villainous speech in her glass(?) cell, only she’s giving it to Jakob: “Could you kill him? Because I’m ready if you are.”

Does Jakob break her out of her cell to work together with Cipher, or is he actually the one who tracks her down? Either way, she’s got a cool magnet plane that she uses to get him out of a sticky situation.

Luckily for Dom, it seems he’s still got Magdalene Shaw on his side as she’s seen giving him some sage advice. And Helen Mirren very much enjoyed getting to drive a car in a Fast & Furious movie.

Is she the only Shaw we’re going to see in the ninth movie, or is there another surprise return on the cards? Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) wasn’t in Hobbs & Shaw, so could he be in the ninth movie or is he dead?

Other than that, the first trailer mainly just teased some of the crazy action sequences we’re in for, including Dom swinging a car between two mountains, as you do.

“Let’s just say you’re gonna question a lot in this movie when it comes to physics,” joked Rodriguez. “You’re just going to be like, [miming ‘wait, what?’]. Let’s just say there’s a lot of that in this one.”

F9 Review

Not 20 minutes into Fast & Furious 9, when Dom and Co are driving over a minefield trying to outrace the explosions, you’ll realise that, yes, this is exactly what we’ve been waiting for.

Tenet and Wonder Woman 1984 might have brought tasty nuggets of blockbuster-sized action in late 2020, but this year has been completely devoid of any such moments to date. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It and A Quiet Place Part II were both great, but they didn’t have a car hovering precariously over a landmine.

Vin Diesel was the target of some lighthearted Twitter gags when he enthused about “the movies” in a recent Fast & Furious 9 promo. However, there’s no doubt that the series, in all its ridiculous glory, is made for the big screen and, arguably, only the MCU can match it for sheer scale.

That Fast and Furious 9 hasn’t turned out to be one of the high points of the series is almost moot. Its release signals that blockbusters are finally back where they belong and it means that every logic-defying stunt will be as comforting as a warm blanket.

Where Fast & Furious 8’s main hook was ‘What if Dom went bad?’, Fast & Furious 9 goes the route of ‘What if Dom had a long-lost brother?’. Of course, Dom (Diesel) chilling over some Coronas with Jakob Toretto (John Cena) wouldn’t make much of a blockbuster, so Jakob obviously had to be a bit of a wrong’un.

Dom is living the quiet life when we reunite with him in the movie, living off the grid with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and his son, little Brian. Again, not much of a blockbuster, so he’s soon forced back into action to stop his brother from acquiring a device that could change the world as we know it.

If that plot sounds familiar, you’re not wrong. The most recent outings in the series seem to always find Dom and his crew chasing after some technological MacGuffin. This time, it’s a “weapon so dangerous it shouldn’t exist for another half-century” according to Cipher (Charlize Theron).

Even with the added wrinkle of a long-lost brother, Fast & Furious 9 can feel a bit stale plot-wise, especially when some reveals add to the feeling of ‘been there, done that’. There’s a fine line between giving the fans what they want and just retreading old ground, and you’re left wishing that as much thought was put into making the plot as creative as the outlandish stunts.

Though after the past year of uncertainty, maybe there’s some merit in comforting familiarity. More than most other franchises, a Fast & Furious movie can feel like hanging out with old friends and F9 certainly piles on the returning cast, with appearances from across the entire series.

Tokyo Drift apologists will absolutely feel satisfied, and it’s fun to think of newcomers who will be baffled by a brief appearance by Shea Whigham. They mostly exist as fan service, along with the nods to previous movies, so if you do want to make this movie your introduction to the series, you won’t be completely lost.

Of course, the main returns are Jordana Brewster’s Mia, who missed out in the last movie, and Sung Kang’s Han, who supposedly died in Fast & Furious 6. The secrets of how Han exactly returns might not be completely satisfying and do have an unfortunate echo of Rise of Skywalker’s ‘somehow, Palpatine returned’. Fans will forgive that for how good it is to see Han back, and you might find yourself getting emotional at his reunion with Dom.

Mia’s return was much simpler to navigate for returning director Justin Lin, but fortunately, this isn’t the Mia who was left on the sidelines in Fast & Furious 7. As Rodriguez had praised beforehand, the female characters actually get involved in the action this time around. The movie might feel familiar elsewhere, yet this is a definite improvement on past outings.

John Cena doesn’t fare as well, as the main newcomer to the cast as Fast & Furious 9 doesn’t spend enough time on Jakob’s antagonistic relationship with Dom. Instead, the movie gets bogged down in some uninteresting flashbacks that show why they parted ways. There are no major revelations here so they mostly exist to pad out an already-bloated runtime and show things that Dom has spoken about before in the series.

Cena does, however, get to flex his considerable action chops and whatever flaws the movie has with its plot, the action sequences never fail to deliver. It’s saying a lot when Jakob zipwiring around Edinburgh as Dom gives chase on rooftops is one of the subtlest action beats in the movie.

Even the crew trying to outrace landmine explosions feels low-key when they’re messing around with magnets and, in the literal high point of the series, heading into actual space in an outrageous finale. It’s ludicrous and makes no logical sense, but the Fast & Furious series has earned it over the years. (There’s also a fun self-awareness here as Roman questions their invincibility.)

They’re not just doing these sequences for the surprise factor – it’s baked into the DNA of the series and it’s supremely entertaining. And in a series where Han has come back from the dead twice, is it really too much of a leap to have a rocket car?

Had Fast & Furious 9 come out in March 2020 if things had been ‘normal’, perhaps we might have been more critical of its overly familiar plot. But by delivering the cinematic adrenaline that’s been sorely lacking over the past year, it’s easier to give it a pass for being so much fun.

With a two-part finale on the way (something that’s set up with a delicious credits scene here), we’ve no doubt the series can course correct and come up with something fresher for the epic conclusion. Welcome back Dom’s familia, it’s so good to see you again.
