Forget numbers - after nine instalments of Fast and Furious, the franchise is now back with the first trailer for Fast X.
The highly anticipated 10th movie in the franchise is set to be released later this year, but an explosive new trailer has got fans hyped as it introduces Jason Momoa and Brie Larson as well as welcoming back star Vin Diesel.
The upcoming movie will see Momoa taken on the role of a villain named Dante, whose vehicle of choice is the motorcycle.
Fans can't wait to see the new movie in all its glory, with one fan responding to the trailer to say: "This looks a lot more grounded than the last one and that’s what we needed. Looks promising."
Another commented: "This looks absolutely fire. Love the connections to Fast 5 and Jason Mamoa looks like he’s having a blast as the villain. Can’t wait to see the movie!"
The 'connection' referenced by fans comes thanks to Dante, who is revealed to be the son of drug kingpin Hernan Reyes, who Dom and Brian (Paul Walker) went up against in the 2011 movie.
Dante has been spending the last 12 years plotting his revenge, and he now threatens to tear apart the thing that means most to Dom - his family.
"That’s the problem with having such a big family,” Dante says menacingly. “How do you choose which ones you save?”
Momoa's villainous character is set to 'scatter Dom’s family from Los Angeles to the catacombs of Rome, from Brazil to London and from Portugal to Antarctica'.
"New allies will be forged and old enemies will resurface. But everything changes when Dom discovers that his own eight-year-old son is the ultimate target of Dante’s vengeance," the film's synopsis explains.
Larson takes on the role of a new character called Tess, but she and Momoa are far from the only fresh faces in the upcoming film.
Joining the stars in Fast X are Michael Rooker, Daniela Melchior, Alan Ritchson and Rita Moreno, while returning cast members also include Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang and Scott Eastwood.
Jason Statham will also be back as former baddie Deckard Shaw.
Fast X is set to kick off a two-part finale to the long-running series, with the characters noting in the trailer that the 'end of the road' is beginning.
Fast X will be released in cinemas on 19 May.
