Epic trailer has action, thrills and flying cars

It's been so long since Fast and Furious 9, or F9, was due to be released, you'd be forgiven for forgetting about it completely.

With cinemas around the world back in action in some form, the two-month countdown begins today. With its June 17 Australian release so tantalisingly close, F9 wants to whet your appetite with

After being pushed back for more than a year, the studio has released another epic trailer for the ninth instalment in the $5 billion mega-franchise, teasing all the gangbuster, gravity-defying stunts and action set pieces.

Fast & Furious 9 is in cinemas on June 17
