Extended cut of Fast 9 coming and Fast 10 gets official release date…

August 18th, 2021 by Marc Comments

If, like us all here at FTN HQ, you’re a sucker for more Fast & Furious, then we have a double dose of great news for you tonight.

First up, F9: The Fast Saga is coming to home release on September 21st and if the 143-minute runtime wasn’t enough for you, then rejoice… there’s a director’s cut included with a whopping seven minutes extra; so, on the disc, you’ll have F9: The Fast Saga: the original theatrical release and F9: The Director’s Cut as well as over an hour of bonus stuff.

Co-writer/director Justin Linn says the new cut includes: “A deepened sibling rivalry between Dom and Jakob, more of Dom’s evolution as a father, a never-before-seen-flashback featuring some of the franchise’s most beloved characters, extended sequences featuring Tej and Roman, an additional Cardi B appearance, and an expanded action climax featuring the infamous Armadillo tank.”

We’re so on board for this, so there are no complaints this end.

Oh, and if that’s still not enough Fast & Furious for you, we now have a release date for Fast 10… see you all at the cinema on April 7th, 2023.

Bring the family.

F9 is available to purchase or rent on digital on September 7, while the 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD versions come to stores on September 21.

Here’s the full line-up of extras:



F9: ALL IN: The Fast family invites you to be part of the crew as they give you an intimate look at how F9 propels this epic franchise to even greater heights. This bonus feature, with more than 46 minutes of content, includes returning characters, new cast members, huge stunts, big surprises, and so much more.

PRACTICALLY FAST: When it comes to stunts, it seems each film in The Fast Saga outdoes the last. In this piece, we examine how Justin Lin and his team go to great lengths to shoot as many stunts as they can in-camera and practically, giving the film an authenticity that cannot be achieved solely through visual effects or CGI.

SHIFTING PRIORITIES: We first met many of these characters when The Fast and the Furious was released in 2001. In the 20+ years since, not only have the characters themselves grown and evolved, but so have the actors that portray them. Art often imitates life, and we look at how that’s particularly true in F9.

JUSTICE FOR HAN: Han is back! Sung Kang and Justin Lin discuss the genesis for the return of this beloved character, while the cast reveals how much it means to them to have Kang back along for the ride.

A DAY ON SET WITH JUSTIN LIN: The job of a director on any movie production is huge. The job of a director on a production the scale of F9 is immeasurable. Spend a day with Justin Lin and see just how demanding it is to navigate a production day when you’re the one with all the answers.

JOHN CENA: SUPERCAR SUPERFAN: John Cena is a real-life car expert, and no franchise does cars like Fast. Watch John jump from exotic car to exotic car like a kid in a candy store, giving you a true fan’s look at some of the rarest and most expensive automobiles in the world.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
