Vin Diesel returns as Dominic Toretto in Fast & Furious 9, directed by Justin Lin.

Universal Pictures has dropped the first full trailer for Fast and Furious 9, the latest installment in its multi-billion-dollar franchise. It's nearly four full minutes of all the ridiculously over-the-top mayhem we've come to expect from Domininc Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his merry band of badass misfits. And no wonder: Director Justin Lin is back on board, who helmed 2006's Tokyo Drift and the next three installments before passing the baton to James Wan for Furious 7.

Fast and Furious 9 is the sequel to 2017's The Fate of the Furious, in which Dom is coerced into the following the orders of a cyberterrorist named Cipher (Charlize Theron). Over the course of a very convoluted plot, Dom discovers his former lover, DSS agent Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky) bore him a son. Elena doesn't survive the film, but the boy does. And of course, Dom and company end up saving the day.

News of a planned ninth and tenth film to complete the franchise broke back in 2016, with F&F9 initially slated for an April 2019 release. It was rescheduled for this year to make room for the 2019 spinoff film, Hobbs and Shaw, starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Stratham in the title roles. There were already rumors of tension between Johnson and Diesel on the set of The Fate of the Furious, and the delay on the ninth film prompted a bitter outburst on Instagram by co-star Tyrese Gibson, who plays team member Roman Pearce in the franchise.
