First Fast X Trailer Coming In February

Vin Diesel took to social media to rev up the hype engines for the next sequel in the long-running franchise.


Vin Diesel has revealed that the first trailer for Fast X will be dropping sometime in February. On Instagram late on Wednesday, the actor shared simply "trailer launch next month."

Fast X began production back in April 2022, but quickly ran into some speed bumps as director Justlin Lin--who has long been associated with the franchise--abruptly exited the project and by May was replaced by Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk, Netflix's live-action Lupin). Diesel and unnamed creative differences and personnel frictions was rumored to be the reason for his "amicable" departure, but Lin has stayed on to produce the script he co-wrote with Dan Mazeau (Damsel, Wrath of the Titans). Fast X is the tenth and second-to-final film in the Fast & Furious film franchise.

In addition to Diesel, most of the rest of the franchise's cast is expected back, including Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, and Sung Kang, but John Cena hasn't confirmed his return yet. Newcomers include Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), and Daniela Melchior (The Suicide Squad)--plus Rita Moreno (West Side Story) as Dom's grandmother.

The movie opens on May 19. The latest film, F9, made $726 million during the pandemic.

In semi-related news, Cena and Moreno are set to star in a newly announced action-comedy called Killer Vacation from Warner Bros. The pair met on the set of Fast 9.
