New Fast X Trailer: You Have To Respect A Dumb Franchise That Takes Itself So Seriously – /Film

Dubbed the “Open Road” trailer, the latest trailer showcases a variety of images from all of the “Fast” movies that focus heavily on the tumultuous relationship between Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez). .

Since the original “The Fast and the Furious,” Dom and Letty have been romantically linked, and their love bond has remained mostly intact despite a series of increasingly scandalous events that occur over the course of the franchise. Your relationship may have its ups and downs, but chances are you didn’t lose the love of your life in a car accident, find out the accident happened in part because she was working undercover for your FBI agent friend, hooked up with another woman while in hiding. in South America only to discover that his love, who he once thought dead, is actually alive but has amnesia, he traveled across the world to save her, he crashed a Dodge Charger into a helicopter to help her regain her memories, he discovered his other woman had her baby before she was murdered and subsequently asked her now-recovered love to raise this new child with you, and then had to deal with her long-lost brother trying to kill them both. I mean, it’s not likely, but it could happen.

The point is, there’s a lot to contemplate, and the “Open Road” trailer does some contemplation. The mood of the trailer is so reflective, in fact, that it uses a needle drop that is the Big Whammy of emotional needle drops: Max Richter’s “On the Nature of Daylight,” a piece previously used with a incredible effect on “Arrival” and, recently, HBO’s “The Last of Us.” Plus, this version is laced with blues legend Dinah Washington’s vocals from “This Bitter Earth,” giving the reel even more seriousness. featured from Dom/Letty.
