    Fast X

    Release date: May 19, 2023

    Dwyer's OTHER Movie Pick

    "As much as a bear on cocaine would be funny, I'm actually excited to see the new fast and furious movie coming out," said Dwyer.

    Fast X, the tenth film in the Fast & Furious Saga, launches the final chapters of one of cinema’s most storied and popular global franchises, now in its third decade and still going strong with the same core cast and characters as when it began. In this movie, Dom Toretto and his family must confront a terrifying new enemy who's fueled by revenge.
