Get Ready for “Fast X” with Legacy Trailers for Past Films

The Fast and Furious franchise has come a long way in its 20-plus years. From the humble beginnings of street racing and stealing DVD players, to stopping nuclear war and launching into outer space, Dom's "family" has been through a lot. That includes off-screen and on-screen deaths. But the series will reach the finish line soon. It starts with Fast X, whose tagline reads "the end of the road begins." (An 11th and final film is planned for the future.)

To get ready for the official trailer drop on Friday, February 10, Universal is releasing a series of "legacy trailers" for films 1-9. These remastered one-minute clips feature the most exciting moments from each entry, concluding with a countdown to the new film's preview. A fresh trip down memory lane drops daily on The Fast Saga's YouTube page until then.

Fast X races into theaters on Friday, May 19.

About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
