In the eight Fridays leading up to F9’s June 25 release, the Fast and Furious films will screen in chronological order across theaters nationwide — for free. The “Fast Fridays” will kick off on April 30, with the original The Fast and the Furious, and will end on June 18 with The Fate of the Furious.
“The Fast films are all about family, and Universal wanted to find a way to thank our huge family of Fast fans around the country for their passion and loyalty over the past 20 years,” said Jim Orr, Universal’s president of domestic theatrical distribution, in a press release. “We’re grateful to our theater partners for their help in making this screening series possible and we are delighted to welcome audiences back to theaters to experience the wild Fast ride all over again. And we cannot wait to blow everyone’s minds with the release of F9 on June 25.”
Participating theaters and ticketing information can be found on the Fast Friday website. The series will launch in over 500 theaters and eventually expanded to 900 — those joining the screening after The Fast and the Furious will pick up with whatever film is scheduled to screen that week.
The ninth installment of the franchise was originally supposed to debut in 2020, but due to COVID-19 was pushed to this summer.
