Vin Diesel returns in the ninth Fast & Furious instalment on March 18, while Malaysian Henry Golding leads first Hollywood action blockbuster as Snake Eyes on March 26
PHILIPPINES, MARCH 10, 2022 – Two adrenaline-pumping blockbusters, F9: The Fast Saga and Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins will premiere on Friday, March 18 and Saturday, March 26 respectively on HBO GO.
The high-octane Fast and Furious movie franchise continues with its ninth chapter F9: The Fast Saga with acclaimed filmmaker Justin Lin (The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast 5 and Fast & Furious 6, Star Trek Beyond) back at its helm. It reunites the original cast members and a number of the creative minds who have worked on the franchise over the span of the last two decades.
Vin Diesel’s (Chronicles of Riddick, The Last Witch Hunter) Dominic Toretto is leading a quiet life with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez – S.W.A.T., Resident Evil: Retribution) and his young son Brian. However, danger lurks in the form of Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena – The Suicide Squad, Peacemaker), the best assassin and high-performance driver the crew has ever encountered. Also with the manipulative Cipher (Charlize Theron – Mad Max: Fury Road, Bombshell) wreaking havoc once more, Dom must choose between his responsibility as a father, loyalty to his chosen ‘family’ and the need to confront the sins of his past.
F9: The Fast Saga welcomes back Tyrese Gibson as Roman, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges as Tej, Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey, Jordana Brewster as Mia, Sung Kang as Han, Helen Mirren as Queenie and Kurt Russell as Mr Nobody, with new faces Anna Sawai as Elle and Thue Ersted Rasmussen as Otto.
Written by Daniel Casey and Justin Lin, F9: The Fast Saga is produced by franchise producer Neal H. Moritz, Vin Diesel, Justin Lin, Jeffrey Kirschenbaum, Joe Roth, and Samantha Vincent.
In Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians, Last Christmas) is Snake Eyes, a tenacious loner welcomed into an ancient Japanese clan, the Arashikage, after saving the life of their heir apparent. As the Arashikage trains him in the ways of the ninja warrior, it also provides something he has been longing for: a home and the closest thing he has to a family. However, when secrets from his past are revealed, Snake Eyes’ honour and allegiance will be tested, which could mean losing the trust of those closest to him.
Based on the iconic G.I. Joe character, Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins also stars Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Úrsula Corberó as Baroness, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Takehiro Hira as Kenta and Iko Uwais as Hard Master. The film is directed by Robert Schwentke and produced by Brian Goldner, Erik Howsam, and Lorenzo di Bonaventura with the screenplay by Evan Spiliotopoulos, Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse.
