One of the most anticipated movies of the year is finally going to make its big screen debut. "F9" hits theaters this Friday. And tickets are already on sale! The film was first announced to be released in April 2020. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the long-awaited movie was delayed until now. With excitement back in the air, Universal got the cast together for a fun little Q&A to talk about what they like about "F9" and the franchise overall.
To kick things off, they're asked "What's your favorite 'Fast' film?" Most of the cast say that aside from this one their favorite film is "Fast Five." We would have to agree. The only cast member whose answer differs is newcomer John Cena. He says his pick would be the first film because "You can't have a journey without a start." Well said.
They're then asked what one word they would use to describe "F9"? Of course, they give the answers we would expect, like "blockbuster," "explosive," and "family." But there's one answer in particular that we think you'll enjoy. Cast member Ludacris describes the film as "ludicrous." If he's gone this long without using his name as an adjective for the film, then this must be a wild one.
Another important question they're asked, "One word to describe Han?" Remember the man we thought burst into flames at the end of "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift." He's still alive somehow. So how do you think the cast reacted? They use words like "reincarnated," "yay," and "justice." And although it's two words, one person says, "welcome back." The actor Sung Kang who plays Han decided to use the word "conditioner."
And finally, the question is asked, "Who's your favorite cast member?" But, instead of us spoiling the surprise, just watch the video. The full rapid-fire Q&A with the cast of "F9" is here on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
