'Fast and the Furious' franchise has been one of the most popular movie franchises. The legacy has lived on for almost 22 years and while some fans are super attached to it others are not finding a "justifiable" reason for the movie series to continue. Regardless, it is and it is coming back with the biggest bang ever. 'Fast X' is the sequel to 'F9' (2021), serving as the tenth main installment, and the eleventh overall film in the 'Fast & Furious' franchise. Although the last film was trolled by the audience a lot because of the number of times Vin Diesel's Dom mentions "family," however, 'Fast X' aka 'Fast and the Furious 10' marks to be the second film where the creators won't feature Dwayne Johnson, but Vin Diesel will be back with his family to woo you one more time. Apparently, it is the fourth most expensive movie ever made.
