Universal Pictures have brought forward the UK release date of the new Fast & Furious 9 movie.

The much-delayed F9 blockbuster was due to hit cinema screens in the UK from July 8, 2021.

However, Universal Pictures UK confirmed on Instagram today (May 20) that the latest instalment of The Fast Saga starring Vin Diesel as Dom Toretto will now arrive in the UK on June 24.

Universal posted: "ANNOUNCEMENT 🚨 Strap in as #Fast9 is now coming to UK cinemas earlier on June 24"  

The ninth movie in the main Fast franchise includes scenes filmed on location in Hatfield.

Vin Diesel was on set at Hatfield House in the summer of 2019 to shoot the movie's tuner party.

The sequences shot in Hatfield saw cars worth millions parked at the Hertfordshire estate for the party.
