Sit tight and brace yourself for the trailer of Fast and Furious 9 is dropping right before you bid adieu to the first month of 2020. The cast of this action franchise will start the new year with a bang and we hope they match up to our sky-high expectations. Though Dwayne Johnson won't be a part of this sequel, John Cena's addition to the cast has taken our expectations a notch higher. While the trailer will be enough to boggle our minds, the makers plan to make the entire experience a lot more special by organising a live concert. You'll Be Blown Away: Vin Diesel on John Cena's Character in 'Fast and Furious 9'.
