The trailer for the 10th installment in the blockbuster action franchise debuted in February, which features throwback footage of the late Paul Walker and reframes events from 2011’s Fast Five.

In that movie, “Dom and his crew took out nefarious Brazilian drug kingpin Hernan Reyes and decapitated his empire on a bridge in Rio De Janeiro. What they didn’t know was that Reyes’ son, Dante (Momoa), witnessed it all and has spent the last 12 years masterminding a plan to make Dom pay the ultimate price.”
