2 Fast 2 Furious Legacy Trailer Released
We're taking things back to 2003 for a legacy trailer for 2 Fast 2 Furious. The countdown to the release of the Fast X trailer is upon us, and Universal Pictures is driving the hype train with a new Fast and Furious trailer each day until we reach February 10th. Yesterday brought the legacy trailer for The Fast and the Furious, the movie that introduced car enthusiasts to Paul Walker's Brian O'Conner and Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto. The follow-up to that film was 2 Fast 2 Furious, which replaced Vin Diesel with Tyrese Gibson's Roman Pearce. As the legacy trailer demonstrates, 2 Fast 2 Furious welcomed several characters that would play important parts in Fast and Furious moving forward.
California kid Brian winds up in Miami, where he meets Tej Parker (Ludacris) and Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes). They work together with the FBI to take down a notorious drug lord named Carter Verone (Cole Hauser). Each Fast and Furious legacy trailer has ended with "In __ days, the end of the road begins," signifying Fast X as the lead-up to the end of the Fast and Furious franchise as we know it.
Universal Pictures Holding Fast X Trailer Fan Event
