The end of the road begins in the Fast X trailer

After 22 years, the end of the road has begun for The Fast Saga. With the horizon in sight, Vin Diesel (Guardians of the Galaxy) and company will be going bigger than ever for the final two films in the franchise, starting with Fast X, which debuted its first trailer today.

The action-packed trailer that spans almost four minutes and focuses on Dominic Toretto (Diesel), who has been growing, building, and protecting his family for over two decades. Dom’s love for family is his biggest strength and weakness, and Dante (Aquaman’s Jason Momoa) will look to tear the family apart once and for all.

Dante is the son of the deceased Brazilian drug kingpin Hernan Reyes, the main villain of Fast Five. Dante has been planning his revenge for 12 years, and now, he teams with Cipher (The Old Guard’s Charlize Theron) to take out Dom by going after his 8-year-old son, Brian Marcos (Leo Abelo Perry)

This scene in Fast X had me on the edge of my seat
Vin Diesel as Dom Toretto stands in front of the Coliseum in Fast X.

It's summer blockbuster season, which means Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family are racing into theaters with the arrival of the next installment in The Fast Saga. Directed by Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me), Fast X continues to follow the proven formula that's led to a worldwide gross of $6.6 billion, slotting it in the top 10 of highest-grossing franchise of all time. Dom faces a new villain threatening his family's safety, forcing his crew to partake in some of the wildest missions ever imagined.

Yet, Fast X's villain, Dante Reyes (Jason Momoa), feels different as he mirrors DC's iconic bad guy The Joker, as he's a brilliant sociopath who takes pride in making his adversaries suffer. Dante is the son of drug lord Hernán Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida), who owned the vault Dom and Brian (Paul Walker) stole in Fast Five. The opening moments of Fast X relive the ending of Fast Five, inserting Dante into the scenes. Hernan died on the bridge, but Dante survives, and every waking moment since that fateful moment, he's been plotting his revenge.

Fast X’s ending, explained
A family has a dinner outside in Fast X.

After 22 years, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) still drives muscle cars, drinks Coronas, and protects his family. In Fast X, Dom and his crew are no longer on the run. Dom still lives in his Los Angeles home with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and his son, Brian (Leo Abelo Perry). His crew still comes over for family dinner as they toast to the successful lives they've built for themselves.

The peace soon ends, however, with the arrival of Dante Reyes (Jason Momoa), the son of Brazilian drug lord Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida), who died at the hands of Dom's crew at the end of Fast Five. Dante is hell-bent on making Dom suffer, so he attacks what matters most to the Fast & Furious hero: family. Fast X builds toward one final showdown between Dom and Dante that ends with a huge cliffhanger. Let's break down the Fast X ending below.

7 best action scenes in the Fast & Furious franchise, ranked
Vin Diesel stands on his car in Fast & Furious 6.

The Fast & Furious franchise has been providing fans with elaborate action scenes for over 20 years. Unlike Tom Cruise, who prides himself in completing realistic stunts in the Mission: Impossible movies, The Fast Saga doubles down on unrealistic, over-the-top action. From bringing down a tank on the highway to jumping out of skyscrapers in a sports car, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew overcome the impossible movie after movie. Earth could not contain this franchise as Dom and his crew once sent a Pontiac Fiero into space.

The Fast Saga does not play by the rules, and that's one of its strengths. These excessive stunts are visually spectacular and highly entertaining -- one of the main reasons the franchise has grossed over $6 billion worldwide. To celebrate the release of Fast X, let's look at the best action scenes from the Fast & Furious franchise.
