The latest installment in the Fast & Furious Saga is due to get a new trailer on April 14, according to a string of tweets from the movie’s official Twitter account. The tweets, a series of seconds-long videos showcasing each individual cast member posing next to a sick ride, are far from action-packed, but at least confirm that the movie is indeed still coming out on June 25.
Fast & Furious 9, alternatively known as F9, is an upcoming action movie directed by Justin Lin (True Detective, Community). Lin, who directed previous entries in the franchise like Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift and Fast & Furious 6, has returned as co-writer on F9 alongside Daniel Casey (10 Cloverfield Lane). Check out the recent Twitter thread below for a small taste of what’s ahead.

Noticeably absent from the gang posturing are Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham–who have been spun off into their own franchise–but Lin has drafted in their place another wrestler-turned-actor in John Cena. Additionally, Sung Kang is returning as Han–a beloved character who died in Tokyo Drift, even though it actually takes place after the sixth movie in the series. Also returning are Michelle Rodriguez as Letty, Helen Mirren as Magdalene Shaw, Tyrese Gibson as Roman Pearce, Ludacris as Tej Parker, and many more. Also, Jordana Brewster returns to the series as Mia after sitting out The Fate of the Furious. Vin Diesel’s 10-year-old son, Vincent Sinclair, also joins the cast in this entry.
