Here we go again. After the news that several tentpole releases, including the one from No time to die and Ghostbusters: Afterlife, delayed again, the message is starting to spread that other blockbusters are coming soon, and it sounds like Fast & Furious 9 will be there. Universal Pictures wants to push, according to a new report F9 to move the action movie to the end of the summer season instead of the beginning later in the year, so that the current conditions have a little more time to relax.
Current predictions of vaccine rollout claim they will not take full effect until the end of the summer, so a delay could be possible F9 will be released when audiences feel more comfortable returning to theaters. Should this continue, we could be looking at another missing summer season, with F9’s removal, leaving a gaping hole the size of a blockbuster.
F9 continues with Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto who now lives a quiet life with Letty and his son, little Brian. They know, of course, that danger is always just above their peaceful horizons, and this time that threat will force Dom to face the sins of his past as he sets out to save those he loves most. The Fast and furious family must work together again to stop an earth-shattering plot led by Dom’s younger brother Jacob, a deadly hit man who teams up with their old enemy Cipher, and wages a personal vendetta against Dom.
Directed by Justin Lin, F9 stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron and John Cena as Jakob Toretto. Fast and furious 9 expected to be the first film in a final trilogy to wrap up the long-running franchise.
The highly anticipated sequel has now been delayed several times amid the ongoing global situation, with talk of the possibility of a streaming release. However, Vin Disel is committed to a traditional, theatrical release, with the actor recently saying, “I am so committed to the theatrical experience. It is clear that I have dedicated my life to [the cinema]. It’s a great feeling to know that we will be there on May 28th with a movie that everyone wants to see together. “
Diesel isn’t alone, with his words reflecting his feelings F9 co-star and on-screen brother John Cena, who recently stated that the action sequel “is definitely a reason to go to the movies.” The no-nonsense action franchise has been a huge success over the years, bringing in millions and amassing a very passionate following, factors that will hopefully lead audiences to brave movie theaters once it’s safe to do so.
F9 is currently scheduled to hit theaters in the United States on May 28, 2021 after several delays from an original release date of April 2019. But if you’re going to write it down in your date book, make sure to use a pencil. Should the film be delayed, he will join people like No time to die, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Not mapped, Cinderella, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, and Morbius, all of which have now been pushed back.
