Explosive New F9 Clip Takes You Behind The Scenes Of Some Epic Car Chases

Leave it to Universal Pictures to fire up your humdrum Thursday with a jolt of energy. 

The film studio has just released a new clip from the ninth "Fast & Furious" movie, succinctly titled "F9," that takes fans behind the scenes of the upcoming film's epic car chases. 

What the footage lacks in length (it clocks in at just under a minute and a half), it more than makes up for in intensity. In the first few seconds alone, the clip shows vehicles crashing into things, getting set on fire, flipping in the air, blazing along city streets, and narrowly escaping explosions on a dirt road. The two main men involved in these eye-widening sequences are the Toretto brothers: Dom, played by Vin Diesel, and his long-lost, very-evil brother Jakob, portrayed by John Cena. 

"F9" will center around Dom and Jakob's rivalry, as the latter partners with the Fast Family's nemesis Cipher (Charlize Theron) to exact revenge on his brother. The two will, as Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) says in the new clip, drive like "bats out of hell" when they take their troubles to the streets. Like the new footage promises, the result will be "total car-nage."

Buckle up for the penultimate Fast & Furious adventure

Though it may seem like the "Fast & Furious" franchise is one that can never die, the film series is indeed eyeing its ultimate conclusion. "F9" will technically be the penultimate story but the third-to-last entry in the franchise that kicked off back in 2001; a planned tenth "Fast & Furious" installment will be split into two movies to wrap everything up, as reported by Deadline. (Hey, if "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" can do it, why can't "Fast & Furious"?)

With the end in sight, the minds behind the "Fast" franchise know that they have to go out with a bang — starting with "F9." Not only will the Justin Lin-directed movie bring John Cena's Jakob Toretto into the fold to work alongside cyberterrorist Cipher, but it will also see the return of Sung Kang's Han Lue, who was presumed dead following a fiery car crash at the end of 2006's "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift." Additionally, there's been chatter that "F9" will take the characters to space, so fans potentially have that to look forward to as well. 

All in all, "F9" looks to deliver the same adrenaline-pumping action that its predecessors did, while also taking the franchise to new heights (possibly literally) before it ends for good.

"F9" is set to hit U.S. theaters on June 25.
