Brie Larson, a croc-wearing, axe-throwing ballerina, would not be a Friday without some news. According to the filmmaker of the upcoming Fast X, Larson's energy is the perfect complement to Vin Diesel's menacing disposition in the film.
Louis Leterrier, the director of Total Film, presented the latest trailer for the film, and he touched on Brie's role in the film. We see a lot of Larson in the trailer, but we don't know too much about her beyond the fact that she is Tess and that she kicks serious butt.
Our guess is that she is a law enforcement officer of some sort attempting to crush Jason Momoa's ego (he plays bad guy Dante).
Also worth mentioning is that the trailer was released six hours ago (as of this writing) and has already had 3 million views.
Ok, back to Leterrier and Larson. While he didn't exactly give away her role, he did mention why she's there and what her purpose will be in the film.
Diesel's character Dom is impacted by that somehow so much and also so little, but we can certainly infer she's not a bad guy in the film. The filmmaker then discussed the roles of women in the film and how they impact on him.
Another cool little fact: the metal ball in the teaser is actually a practical effect.
“It's practical! A practical metal ball in real Rome, 100%. It's a one-tonne, metal ball, rolling through the real streets of Rome with real fire,” Leterrier said.
On May 19, Fast X will hit theaters.
