A new F9 video shows Vin Diesel addressing the hardships of 2020 and how fans are finally returning to movie theaters thanks to the COVID-19 vaccine. Diesel speaks directly to fans about the importance of theaters and shows off several clips from the latest Fast and Furious film.
“It’s been a while,” Diesel tells fans in the new F9 video. “The roads were a little empty. Places where we used to gather went quiet. We’ve gone through a year that tested us, but we’re starting to see the promise of a new day.”
“For more than 100 years, there’s one place where we all came together to be entertained. To escape, to go someplace new… the movies. There’s nothing like that moment when the lights go down and the projector ignites, and we believe. It’s time to come back together. To laugh. To cheer. We’re ready to make you believe again. Because nobody does a comeback like the movies. We’ll see you soon.”
