Yes, a tricked-out, revved-up Pontiac Fiero is cool.

As movie trailers go, if you’re a fan of the Fast & Furious series, it can’t get much better than the new nearly four-minute trailer for F9: The Fast Saga.  The film is the tenth in the franchise and ninth in the main storyline following Vin Diesel’s action hero car driver Dominic Toretto.  Diesel returns with all the major players from the last film, 2017’s The Fate of the Furious: Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty Ortiz (who already died once in the series), Jordana Brewster as Dom’s sister Mia, Tyrese Gibson as Rome Pearce, Ludacris as Tej Parker, plus Charlize Theron (sporting a Seven of Nine vibe with that earring) as Cipher, the franchise’s ultimate villain.

There’s been nothing definitive released yet about the next return of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham after last year’s hit tie-in film, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.  But Helen Mirren, who played Shaw’s mom, will be back in the new film and is featured in the first trailer for F9: The Fast Saga (below).

Surprise sibling trope alert!  New to the series is a surprise for fans of the series, a brother to Dom played by John Cena.  And good news: Lucas Black is back as Sean Boswell (we haven’t seen him in the series since Furious 7) and, after an even longer break from the series, look for Sung Kang’s surprise return as Han Lue, who we haven’t seen since he was supposedly killed by Shaw in Fast & Furious 6 (it’s not a spoiler if it’s in the trailer!).

Here is the great, new, over-the-top (and we love it that way) first trailer for F9: The Fast Saga:

The pay streaming platform CBS All Access has posted the first episode of its latest Star Trek series free on YouTube.  That’s right, Star Trek: Picard episode one is available right now.  Unlike plenty of things on YouTube this is a legitimate, authorized release, but according to the studio it will only be available for a limited time.  So take a look before it’s gone.

Star Trek: Picard takes place twenty years after the events in the movie Star Trek: Nemesis, which resulted in the death of Brent Spiner’s character Data, and also after the events of Star Trek (2009), which resulted in the destruction of the planet Romulus.

Returning to the Star Trek universe is Patrick Stewart as now Admiral Jean-Luc Picard, along with Spiner, Jonathan Frakes as Riker, Marina Sirtis as Troi, Jonathan Del Arco as Hugh, and from Star Trek Voyager, Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine, along with a next generation of new characters.

Take a look at the first episode of Star Trek: Picard on YouTube below:
