F9’s premiere date is taking a Tokyo drift style-swerve. According to Deadline, F9 will now debut in later in the summer.
The most recent debut for the 9th film in the Fast and the Furious franchise was set for May 28th! This is already after several moves to due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Now, look for Dom (Vin Diesel) and his family to race into theaters on June 25, 2021.
Apparently, the reason for the latest shift is the major overseas markets. Universal is waiting to see if things improve before releasing one of their guaranteed blockbusters. Additionally, New York theaters are opening this Friday and Los Angeles might not be far behind. This could possibly mean more eyes physically going to the theater to watch for the studio!
