We're only two months away from racing into theaters to watch Dom Toretto and his family defy the laws of physics once again with the premiere of Fast X. Ahead of its release, Universal Pictures is ramping up the marketing. This time around, the studio released a new movie poster featuring the entire cast of the upcoming film.
The new movie poster has Vin Diesel’s Dominic at the center, flanked by two villains in Charlize Theron’s Cipher and one of the series' newcomers, Jason Momoa’s Dante Reyes. Reyes is the son of Fast Five villain Hernan Reyes.
The Fast and Furious mainstays like Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Nathalie Emmanual, Ludacris, and Sung Kang are all returning for the series' tenth installment as well. Also in the poster are John Cena’s Jakob Toretto and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw alongside new faces, Brie Larson, Daniela Melchior, and Alan Ritchson.

Larson will be playing Tess, a representative of Mr. Nobody, and allies herself with Dom and the crew. According to director Louis Leterrier, Tess is "connected to the franchise in a very strong way. But she also brings so much life, and something that we’ve never experienced before in this franchise."
The director adds that Tess help Dom in Fast X. On the other hand, Melchior plays as a Brazilian street racer with ties to Dom’s past. Finally, Ritchson has been cast as Agent Aimes, the new leader of Mr. Nobody’s agency.
The plot for Fast X
In Fast Five, Dom and the crew take down the drug lord Hernan Reyes, who is then executed by Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs. Unbeknownst to the protagonists, Reyes’ son Dante watched the events unfold and vowed to take revenge. The younger Reyes masterminds a plan to make Dom and his cohorts pay for his father’s death.
Dante’s plot will see the crew separated with Dom being forced to make new alliances. Old enemies also emerge from the shadows, threatening the safety of everyone. Dante’s ultimate target is Dom’s 8-year-old son, Brian.
Will there be a post-credits scene?
We previously reported that there may be a post-credits scene for Fast X and it may or may not be feature a guest cameo. There are speculations that Gal Gadot’s Gisele will return in Fast X similar to Sung Kang’s Han returning in F9. We might be seeing a new character introduced in the end-credits scene.
"Well, it was important for me to bring my flair," Leterrier shared during a recent interview with Comicbook. "My flair is reality, is physics, is bringing the actors into the action, never separating action and storytelling and emotion. Everything is doing a little bit of stirring the pot and bringing everybody into this controlled chaos."
Fast X will premiere in theaters on May 17.
