Universal Pictures / YouTube

After dropping a teaser earlier this week, Universal Pictures has finally released the official trailer for F9, the ninth instalment in the Fast and Furious franchise.

As the film’s official tagline promises “no matter how fast you are, no one outruns their past.” In the full-length trailer, things come to a head after Dominic Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) serene family life is shattered by a threat from his past, Cipher (Charlize Theron), assisted by a master thief car expert (John Cena) — who we learn is his brother.

Family ties are put to the test in the high-speed clip which reunites much of the original cast, including Lucas Black (Sean Boswell), Earl (Jason Tobin), and even Han (Sung Kang), who makes an appearance despite his alleged death. The trailer of course also features several breathtaking action sequences, with gravity-defying stunts and car chases. Check it out below.

From Vin Diesel slapping aside a flying car to Han’s unexpected return and John Cena’s incredible acting skills, the F9 trailer had many standout moments, and Twitter took note. We rounded up some of the most hilarious and emotional reactions to the brand new trailer, browse through them below.
