The first official images from Fast X have been released, teasing the “beginning of the end” for the Fast and Furious saga while revealing Brie Larson’s mysterious character.

Fast X first images reveal Brie Larson

Brie Larson will play Tess in Fast X. Whether she’s a friend or foe, or somewhere in-between, remains unclear.

In an interview with Empire, where the images were shared ahead of the first trailer tomorrow, director Louis Leterrier said: “When you have fought so hard to keep your faith and protect your family, and literally change the world, which is the case of Dom Toretto, there is a price to pay.

“His enemies are coming after him. There’s a total sum of enemies that are coming after him.”

Larson, Momoa, and Theron round out a typically stacked cast, with all the familiar faces returning: Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Jason Statham, John Cena, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, and more.

Leterrier, who joined the movie following Justin Lin’s departure over creative differences, has assured that while he brought the series “back to Earth… you will see: as long as Dom Toretto is behind the wheel of a car, there’s nothing he cannot do.”
