F9 (also known as F9: The Fast Saga and internationally as Fast & Furious 9) is a 2021 American action film directed by Justin Lin from a screenplay by Daniel Casey and Lin. It is the sequel to The Fate of the Furious (2017), the ninth main installment, and the tenth full-length film in the Fast & Furious franchise. Fast and Furious 9 is still the highest-grossing film during the pandemic, surpassing the $700 million mark at the global box office.
Quoted from Deadline, Friday, technically, the achievement occurred on Thursday (26/8) local time. “F9” is the only Hollywood film to cross that threshold to date for 2020 and 2021. The last film to do so was “Jumanji: The Next Level”, released in 2019, which hit $800 million worldwide.
With a ninth and tenth film planned since 2014, Lin was confirmed to be directing F9 in October 2017, returning to the franchise since last directing Fast & Furious 6 (2013). F9 is the first film in the franchise since The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) not written by Chris Morgan. The cast was finalized with the addition of Cena in June 2019 and principal photography began that same month and lasted until that November, with filming locations including London, Los Angeles, Tbilisi, and Thailand.
Fast and Furious 9 film online was originally scheduled for a worldwide release by Universal Pictures on April 19, 2019, but was delayed several times, first due to the release of Hobbs & Shaw (2019) and planned release of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s No Time to Die (2021), and then the COVID-19 pandemic. It premiered in South Korea and was released internationally on May 19, 2021, and in the United States on June 25. The film received mixed reviews with praise for the stunts and Lin’s direction, but criticism for its unrealistic action sequences and formulaic script. F9 set several pandemic box office records and grossed over $710 million worldwide, becoming the second-highest-grossing film of 2021.
