First “Fast X” Trailer Unleashes Jason Momoa’s Villain Dante

The Fast family is facing their toughest challenge yet, and his name is Dante.

In the first trailer for Fast X, Jason Momoa’s villain Dante is front and center and he’s furious. Dante’s beef with Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) goes back years, and the trailer reveals that his vendetta against Dom and the family began way back during the events of Fast Five (2011) when Dom and the crew took down the Brazilian drug kingpin Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida) in Rio de Janeiro. Unbeknownst to them, a blood feud began then, because Reyes’ son Dante (Momoa) watched the entire thing go down, and he’s spent the past dozen years planning his revenge on Dom.

The tenth installment in Universal’s mega-popular franchise will once again find Dom and the crew scattered all over the globe, from LA to Rome, Brazil to London, Portugal to Antarctica. Dante’s vengeance is so intense that no one, man, woman, or child, is safe. This includes Dom’s 8-year-old son, Brian (Leo Abelo Perry).

Fast X comes from director Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk) and boasts a stellar ensemble. The returning champions are Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Jason Statham, John Cena, Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren, and Charlize Theron. Newcomers joining Momoa include Brie Larson (Captain Marvel, Room) as Tess, a rogue representative from the Agency; Alan Richtson (Reacher) as Aimes, the new head of the Agency; Daniela Melchior (The Suicide Squad) as a Brazilian street racer connected to Dom’s past; and the icon Rita Moreno as Dom and Mia’s Abuelita Toretto.

Check out the trailer below. Fast X zooms into theaters on May 19.
