Fast & Furious 9 director Justin Lin has unveiled a behind-the-scenes look at one of the film’s crazy moments – one that took months and months to craft for just a few seconds of screen time.
The scene in focus looks to involve magnates, which we saw villainess Cipher (Charlize Theron) using in a bonkers plane/car sequence featured in the big F9 trailer that dropped way back in February 2020 (yeah, the delays for this one have been substantial). As shown off in the Super Bowl spot released yesterday, this new scene has a car drawn in by a magnetic device, flying off the road, right through a store, and caught in a truck that’s driving along on a parallel road. Nuts.
“One 4 second shot in #F9. 8 Months of prep. 4 days of production. 3 cars destroyed,” Lin captioned the behind-the-scenes video. Take a look below.
Fast & Furious 9, also starring Vin Diesel, John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, and Helen Mirren, among others, will (hopefully) be heading to Australian cinemas on May 27th and US cinemas on May 28th.

No matter how fast you are, no one outruns their past.
Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena, next year’s The Suicide Squad).
F9 sees the return of Justin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster. The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tblisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.
