Fasten your seat belt and let’s race! Fast X, part of the Fast & Furious series, is finally going to hit the silver screen in the Chinese mainland on May 17.
With the first movie released in 2001, the themes of racing and family attracted a large fandom. However, when the series has focused less on street racing in the past, it has drawn criticism.
Fortunately, Fast X is going “back to the roots” and fans can enjoy a fair amount of exciting car racing clips, according to CBR website. Unlike many surreal car races in recent films, including a rocket-powered car and vehicles launching into buildings and other structures, the film doesn’t go too wild. In an interview with Empire magazine, Fast X director Louis Leterrier said that the wildest concept in the film is vertical drag race, in which cars will drive up a wall. “What we did was go back to the original tone. You have to have stuff that feels real,” said Leterrier.
To achieve this goal, the production team also made great effort. “When you see a car dropping from a plane and landing on two cars, well, we did drop a car and then it landed on two cars,” Leterrier added.
Set to be the second-to-last movie in the series, Fast X brings the adventures of the main character Dominic Toretto to a close. “Part of the reason why Fast X has to be broken into two different movies is that there’s so much ground to cover. There are so many places and so many locations in the world that we have to visit,” Vin Diesel, the US actor who played Toretto, said during a press event.
