Plot: “Fast and Furious 9”
There are a lot of potential storylines that the movie might use for itself. Fast and Furious 9’s trailer hinted at various angles. We know that Cipher wants revenge against Dom for betraying her, and Dom does too for multiple reasons. Cipher killed the mother of Dom’s son, which is why Dom is looking for vengeance. Han’s attempted murder is also in the film, and we expect a sub-plot to be present there. On top of that, Dom’s younger brother Jakob has returned. We will get to see them fighting each other, and Mia being a mediator.
Storyline: “Fast and Furious 9”
While it’s impossible to have a recap of all eight movies till now, here’s a summary of what happened in Fast and Furious 8. The eighth film saw Dom going rogue and Cipher controlling him. As a result, Hobbes and Deckard Shaw try to stop Dom. Kurt Russell as Mr Nobody spearheads the operation. It was full of high energy car chases and incredible action as well.
