The Fast & Furious franchise is coming out with its ninth movie. F9 is the latest edition to the popular franchise and is set to be in theaters on June 25th. Despite this, there will be a showing of the new film on June 24th as well.
F9 will see lots of familiar faces such as Vin Diesel (Dominic Toretto), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty Ortiz), Jordana Brewster (Mia Toretto), Tyrese Gibson (Roman Pearce), Ludacris (Tej Parker), and more. Some new faces will be added to the cast as well. “WAP” rapper Cardi B will be seen on the big screen as Leysa, a new character being introduced to the franchise. Along with Cardi, John Cena will also be introduced to the franchise as Jakob Toretto, the brother of Dominic Toretto played by Diesel reports Newsweek.
Though the movie isn’t officially out yet, the soundtrack has been released to all streaming platforms. The soundtrack has 14 songs and features many well-known artists including Pop Smoke, Ty Dolla $ign, Polo G, NLE Choppa, and more according to Billboard.
The movie is expected to be action packed and full of twists and turns as all of the past movies in the franchise have been. I’m looking forward to seeing what new surprises can be seen on the big screen this time around. Keep a look out for a full review from me soon.
