The new “Fast & Furious” movie trailer showcases the challenges and danger that Dom and his team of street racers will face. Jason Momoa’s character, Dante, will be the latest enemy the crew must defeat. Dante is revealed to have a connection to the events of “Fast Five,” released in 2011, where Dom and Brian (played by Paul Walker) pulled off a daring bank vault heist in Rio de Janeiro. Dante is the son of Hernan Reyes, the drug kingpin from “Fast Five,” and has spent the past 12 years plotting his revenge against Dom and his crew for ruining his life. The trailer promises an action-packed and high-stakes story for the 10th installment in the “Fast & Furious” franchise.

The newest villain, Dante, played by Jason Momoa, poses a significant threat to the Fast family and plays on Dom’s greatest fear of losing loved ones. The Toretto family, led by Dom, has much to protect including reuniting with his long-lost brother Jakob and raising his son, Little Brian, with Letty. The trailer also features a new addition to the cast, Rita Moreno, as Dom’s grandmother.

From Los Angeles to Rome, Brazil to London, and even Antarctica, Dante’s scheme will take the Toretto family on a journey across the globe. While they forge new alliances and confront old enemies, they will discover that the ultimate target of Dante’s wrath is none other than Dom’s 8-year-old son. This revelation will force Dom to make a choice that will change everything and determine the fate of his family.

Brie Larson’s Tess, who is portrayed as a rogue representative from the Agency, seems to be on the Toretto family’s side. The addition of Larson, who starred in “Captain Marvel,” increases the number of Oscar-winning actors in the franchise to four, joining the ranks of Rita Moreno, Charlize Theron, and Helen Mirren. Alan Ritchson, known for his role in “Reacher,” plays Aimes, the new head of the Agency who doesn’t share the same affection for Dom’s crew as his predecessor, Mr. Nobody. Meanwhile, Daniela Melchior, who appeared in “The Suicide Squad,” portrays a Brazilian street racer with a significant connection to Dom’s past.

Vin Diesel spoke on the red carpet about his dream casting for the next and final installment of the “Fast and Furious” franchise. He revealed that he would love for Robert Downey Jr. to join the cast. However, he didn’t provide any details about the role Downey Jr. might play. Diesel mentioned that there would be a character in the film who believes in AI and driverless cars and is promoting a philosophy that goes against the Toretto mentality.

Meanwhile, Michelle Rodriguez expressed her desire for Matt Damon to be a part of the franchise, pointing out that the film already boasts four Oscar winners and Damon is one of them.

The production of “Fast X” faced some challenges along the way. Initially, Justin Lin was onboard as the director, having previously directed five “Fast” films dating back to 2006’s “Tokyo Drift”. However, he stepped down in April 2022, just as the principal photography began, due to creative differences. A week later, Louis Leterrier took over as the director. Despite his departure as director, Lin remains involved as a producer and writer, having co-written the film with Dan Mazeau. The film is produced by a team that includes Diesel, Lin, Neal Moritz, Jeff Kirschenbaum, and Samantha Vincent. “Fast X” is scheduled to be released on May 19.
