The second official trailer for the latest installment of the Fast & Furious franchise Fast & Furious 9 (alternatively titled F9) was released during the commercials of Super Bowl LV. The film was originally supposed to be released on May 22, 2020. However, like many films that were set to come out in 2020, Fast & Furious 9 was pushed back to another date as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 30-second TV spot released during Super Bowl LV came out over a year after the first trailer for the film debuted. Fast & Furious 9 is directed by Justin Lin. The film centers around Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) going up against his younger brother Jakob (John Cena), who teams up with the main villain from Fate of the Furious Cipher (Charlize Theron) to get revenge on Dom and his friends.

The trailer opens with Dom spending time with his friends and family. Dom states that the world has a way of changing, but there is one thing that always stays the same. He asks Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) if she misses the old life. Letty avoids the question and instead asks Dom if he misses it. Dom smiles and admits that he misses it every day. The music soon picks up as Dom and the other members of his crew shift the gears of their cars and drive off. Jakob is soon seen driving his vehicle through several police cars, knocking them all out of the way in the process.

A purple car is then slides across a sidewalk and revealed to be driven by Magdalene Shaw (Helen Mirren), the mother of previous antagonists Owen (Luke Evans) and Deckard (Jason Statham) Shaw. Letty is seen jumping from her far onto a motorcycle while wrestling the thug for control of the vehicle. Dom is next shown in his car picking up a radio and telling someone to “crank it all the way up.” An unseen driver uses his car to ram through a store and back onto another road. Letty screams with joy through the adrenaline and excitement as the trailer ends by cutting to the title card.

Fans can look forward to seeing Dom and the crew back together in Fast & Furious 9 when it is released on May 28.
