F9 was one of the first films to pump the breaks on a 2020 release date with the emergence of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Producer and star Vin Diesel recently expressed to our sister publication Total Film how important it was to ensure the release of F9 would be a big theatrical event.
"I'm so committed to the theatrical experience," Diesel said. "Obviously, I've dedicated my life to [the cinema]. It's a wonderful feeling to know that we're going to be there on May 28 with a movie that everybody is going to want to see together."
