Vin Diesel shares the first look at the Director’s cut for the F9 that will be on the digital and home media release.
Vin Diesel, star of the Fast and Furious series shared the director’s cut of the F9 which will be released on digital and Blu-Ray. F9, the tenth movie in the series, was one of the most-watched movies that came out during the pandemic. Since its release, it has grossed around $700 Million worldwide. There are also rumors that the tenth installment of the series will be released sometime in 2023.
The latest film in the franchise revolves around Dominic Toretto played by Vin Diesel and his other family members as they have to face off against Jakob Toretto, Dominic’s younger brother played by John Cena. Although the critic score has been low, the fan’s reviews are still quite positive, hence Universal may see another success with its home release.
Vin Diesel shared a sneak peek at the director’s cut on his Instagram handle. However, there is not much shown in the post, he mentioned how he was excited for director Justin Lin to return to the franchise. Have a look at the post below:

Diesel also mentioned that the movie will have more “Fast DNA” which will most likely be more of the insane action that the series is known for. The above video mostly suggests that there will be more action sequences in space and be with Dom on a large tank. It also shows a final faceoff between Dom and Jakob. Although there will be more scenes with the brother, the deleted scenes will not affect the film’s narrative a lot.
The Fast and Furious isn’t known for studio interference, so it’s not very predictable as to how different the director’s cut of F9 will be. Mostly, scenes are deleted for the best, but it will be interesting to see what Lin really had in mind for the movie. Diesel promoting the movie’s home release as a director’s cut also increases the reach and is a good way to get more people to buy the film.
The director’s cut of F9 releases on digital on September 7 and 4K UHD and Blu-ray on September 21 this year.
