The tenth installment of the “Fast and Furious” franchise has been released on home video this Tuesday. If you tune in just for Helen, you might be disappointed. Her annual cameo has been dialed down this time to only one short scene with Vin Diesel. The blink-and-you-miss-it appearance in the trailer was pretty much all there is. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery.

Yesterday, the first official premiere for “Fast X” was held at The Colosseum in Rome, Italy. The choice of the Italian capital as the first city in the world where the 10th installment in the “Fast & Furious” saga would screen honored the fact that some of the film’s most high-octane action scenes were shot in Rome and its surrounding cities. The film releases theatrically worldwide next week, so I’m sure there’ll be much promotion in the coming week. Also added is a press junket interview with Helen that was conducted in Rome on Friday as well, and a lovely behind-the-scenes featurette on the film, in which Vin Diesel and Helen Mirren are interviewed on the set during filming in July of last year.
Universal Pictures on Friday debuted the new trailer to “Fast X,” the penultimate movie in the “Fast and the Furious” saga. The action packed trailer shows off series newcomers Brie Larson, Alan Richtson and Daniela Melchior, as well as anticipated returns by Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw, Helen Mirren as his mom Magdalene and Charlize Theron’s baddie Cipher. The coming attraction also teases a start to where it all began: a climactic street race between Dom, Dante and the Toretto clan. “We raced for respect,” Dom says of the past. “Today I race to stop the bloodbath.” “Fast X” races into theaters May 19.

According to Digital Spy, new set photos from the set of Fast X have confirmed that Dame Helen Mirren will reprise her role in the street racing action franchise. Mirren will play Magdalene ‘Queenie’ Shaw once again, as confirmed in filming photos with Fast & Furious protagonist Vin Diesel, who plays Dom Toretto. The two actors were photographed as they filmed scenes for the upcoming movie at the Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome. Mirren first appeared in the role of criminal mastermind Queenie – the mother of Owen and Deckard Shaw – in 2017, with an uncredited cameo in The Fate of the Furious. She reprised the role in Hobbs & Shaw and F9 and was expected to return in Fast X, but her involvement hadn’t been officially confirmed until now. The tenth film in the main franchise, Fast X is directed by Louis Leterrier, from a script that’s been written by Fast & Furious director Justin Lin and Dan Mazeau. Alongside Diesel and Mirren, the film will star Michelle Rodriguez as Letty, Tyrese Gibson as Roman, Ludacris as Tej, Jordana Brewster as Mia, Charlize Theron as villain Cipher, and Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey. Fast X has also welcomed a few newcomers to this new instalment, namely The Suicide Squad’s Daniela Melchior, Captain Marvel star Brie Larson, and Titans’ Alan Ritchson, cast in undisclosed roles. Fast X is out in cinemas on May 19, 2023.
