Vin Diesel unveils the first ‘Fast X’ trailer at a pre-release party in Los Angeles: Fasten your seatbelts!’

Vin Diesel was not alone at Thursday’s “Fast X” trailer takeover party at L.A. Live. He brought his family with him.

Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris were present to show off the four-minute trailer for the first time. “Fast X,” which was released on May 19, is the tenth film in the super franchise, which has grossed $5 billion worldwide.

Diesel, 55, was alone on stage when the trailer was rolled for the first time after the audience chanted “Diesel!” (a chant the never-bashful actor started himself).

“Guys, I can’t tell you how good it feels to be here tonight to unveil the trailer after 23 years,” Diesel said. “This trailer will be shown for one minute during the Super Bowl. You will witness four minutes.”

Diesel was dressed in a t-shirt honouring late co-star Paul Walker, who died in 2019. Walker’s family was in the audience for the trailer’s debut.

“I’ve been so fortunate to be a part of this family,” Diesel told the audience. “You truly are, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart, the best fans any film could ever hope for. You allowed us to be a part of your family. I can’t wait to show you this.”

The event was hosted by Maria Menounos, who brought each cast member onstage to discuss the street-racing franchise, which began with 2001’s “The Fast and the Furious” and is now in its third decade.

“It’s been a wild ride, we’ve grown up together,” Menounos said. “Fast-10 your seatbelts,” I’ve been waiting to say.

Through a video message, “Fast X” villain and “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa welcomed Diesel to the stage.

“It’s been an honour to be a part of this iconic franchise and to be the next bad guy to tear this beautiful family apart,” Momoa said.

What happens in the first ‘Fast X’ trailer?

Without giving anything away, the trailer depicts a family and fast car-centered tenth film. Dante, played by Momoa, instills emotional hatred and pain in Diesel’s Dom Torreto by kidnapping his child.

“Never accept death when you are owed suffering,” Dante says before threatening. “That’s the issue with having such a large family; you have to pick and choose who you love.”

Rita Moreno (who plays Grandma Toretto in the franchise) is seen at a family gathering. In a screen fight, Brie Larson’s mysterious character demonstrates power moves.

And you can count on Torreto to fight back at high speeds in his classic Dodge Charger, blowing up beautiful parts of Rome, Italy.

“You will never be able to break my family,” he says emphatically.
