Fast X is the movie that everyone has been waiting for. The Fast and the Furious franchise has become one of the biggest action film franchises since the 2000s. It is now in its third decade and has been going strong with the same core cast since it began.
Vin Diesel, who plays Dominic Toretto, and his band of friends, family, and allies have captured audiences and return in this year’s Fast X. Paul Walker and Vin Diesel wanted to do 10 movies together because they have created a family among the cast and crew. Unfortunately, Paul Walker could only do seven movies before he passed away. They carried on his legacy, though, since this movie marks the promised number 10.
Fast X is bringing out the big guns regarding the cast. There are so many characters, both old and new, that will feature in the latest entry. As a tribute to Paul, the franchise is adding his daughter, Meadow, to the movie. This movie is meant to be the final film in the franchise, but there will probably be side movies in the future that will bring loose ends together, like Hobbs and Shaw 2. This is our speculation and hasn’t been confirmed.
Jason Momoa will play Dante, the son of Hernan Reyes, the villain in Fast Five. He is filled with twelve years of grief, hate, and revenge, which drives him to race across the world and cause disaster in Dom’s world. Dom faces his worst fear when he hears that Dante’s main target is Dom’s son. Dom and his family will do everything to keep his son safe. Dante isn’t the only one after he and his family; Cipher is still looking to get her revenge on them.
The Fast and Furious movies have seen such success because of the level of absurdity. With all the incredible stunts and car chases, you can’t imagine more action and suspense in a movie. While it can be cheesy at times, it’s also filled with funny lines and heartwarming moments. Some of the main characters you have seen in recent Fast and the Furious movies have been coming back since 2001. All of these aspects make these movies a huge hit in the theaters.
