A 30-second teaser of the upcoming Fast and Furious 9 was played during the Super Bowl, following which it made rounds on the internet. Director Justin Lin shared an interesting trivia, hinting into the effort that went during the making of the film.
The 30-second clip included a shot of a car being thrown into a store and covering the entire area to smash into a passing truck. Lin took everyone behind-the-scenes, exhibiting how the stunt was performed in reality.
"One 4 second shot in #F9. 8 months of prep. 4 days of production. 3 cars destroyed. Work from over a hundred of the most dedicated and talented crew. Best job in the world!," he wrote.
‘Fast and Furious 9’ was originally supposed to hit the theatres in 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic pushed the release date ahead by almost a year. Currently, it is expected to release in May, 2021 though the teaser does not show any concrete date for release.
Vin Diesel shared the news of the film in January 2020 on Twitter.
“We're getting closer...,” Diesel wrote.
He also announced the delay of the film, expressing his “disappointment” as fans had to wait a little longer to experience the rush promised in the ‘Fast and Furious’ movies.
“While we know there is disappointment in having to wait a little while longer, this move is made with the safety of everyone as our foremost consideration,” Diesel added.
The latest film stars Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges, John Cena, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Helen Mirren, and Charlize Theron, and continues from the events of ‘The Fate of the Furious’, which released in 2017.
