The latest installment of the FURIOUS franchise, F9: The Fast Saga, premiered at TCL Chinese Theatre on Friday (June 18). Vanessa Bryant and her daughter, Natalia Bryant, joined the stars of the film at the Hollywood screening.


The mother-daughter pair posed on the red carpet in their colorful outfits that fit the season. Both mother and daughter made sure to pose with a couple of the F9 cast members before heading inside to watch the movie.

Tyrese, who stars as Roman in the film, also posed for several photos. The celebrity dad had his oldest daughter, Shayla Gibson, with him in the spotlight. “My daughter Shayla wants to grow up so badly I just won’t let her,” Tyrese told his social media fans. “Yup,” he continued, “she’s 13 and wearing J’s but in my mind, she is and will forever be my baby.”

F9: The Fast Saga shows the element of brother against brother as Jakob (John Cena) is pursued by Cipher (Charlize Theron) to take revenge on Dom (Vin Diesel). Will Jakob remember the good times that he and his older brother have enjoyed? Or, will he work with Dom’s arch enemy to exact revenge on his older sibling? You will have to watch F9 when it is released to the public to find out!

The FURIOUS franchise was birthed out of the film, Fast & Furious (2001). The film was such a hit that Universal returned two years later with 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003). The success of the FURIOUS franchise has indeed been overwhelming. Tyrese, however, recently shed light on the saga’s impending end.

“We’re tapping out after 11, officially,” Tyrese said during a recent appearance on LIVE With Kelly and Ryan. “Every story deserves its own ending,” the celebrity continued. “I know people are going to feel like it doesn’t have to end, but I think all good things should. There are reasons for a finale. I think this franchise has deserved it.”

F9: The Fast Saga comes to the public sphere on Friday, June 25, 2021.
