The Fast and Furious franchise is racing towards the finish line with only two movies left to go before fans will have to bid farewell to Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family, at least that's the plan. The first part of this final chapter is Fast X which was released in cinemas in May 2023 and will become available to Sky Cinema and NOW subscribers in January.

Fast X sees Dom and the family facing their deadliest enemy yet, Dante (Jason Momoa) who has been preparing to exact his revenge on them ever since the events of 2011's Fast Five.
