Fast & Furious: How Long Is Fast X?

"Fast X" is now in theaters, and as expected, it brought in major bucks at the box office (even if it came in a little short compared to other "Fast & Furious" entries). Still, it's clear there's plenty of gas left in the tank when it comes to the passion from the fan base, which is an excellent thing because "Fast X" is kicking off a trilogy to close out the series. Some spin-offs and tangentially related projects may come down the pipeline, but it's obvious the mainstay series has its eyes set on the finish line. 

For those wanting to buckle into the latest installment, the question becomes how long is the movie "Fast X." It's natural to need to make a pit stop or two when watching movies at the theater, but viewers who don't want to miss a single second will have to hold it for a while. "Fast X" clocks in at 141 minutes and 41 seconds, putting it around two hours and 20 minutes. While it's certainly long, it's not the longest the franchise has produced yet.

Fast 9 beats Fast X's runtime by a minute

It seems as though the "Fast & Furious" movies are looking to up the ante in more ways than one. "Fast 9" remains the longest film of the franchise, with a runtime of 142 minutes and 50 seconds. That puts it just over a minute longer than "Fast X." Granted, if you really need to use the bathroom, you can deck out of the credits a little early. There's only one mid-credits scene, but it has significant ramifications for the sequels to "Fast X."

It remains to be seen if the runtime for "Fast X" is just a short sampling of things to come. Without giving away spoilers, it sets up plenty of plot points for the next two "Fast & Furious" movies to follow. If the series really wanted to go out with a bang, those two could be even longer, as was the case for "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers: Endgame."

Michelle Rodriguez predicted many people would be shocked at the ending to "Fast X," telling Digital Spy, "I think people are gonna be really, really surprised and we're gonna get a lot of open mouths at the end of Fast X. Let's just put it that way." "Fast 11" is set to come out in 2025, with director Louis Leterrier set to return. It remains to be seen if that movie will be even more of a marathon for fans to get through.
