2011’s Fast Five was one of the action flicks I enjoyed the most (along with Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) and reassured me that there is hope for over the top action entertainment. Maybe I enjoyed Fast Five so much because I had little to no interest in seeing it beforehand but anyways it is still on hard rotation in my Blu-Ray drive.
Therefore I am naturally looking forward to the sixth installment: Fast and Furious 6.
There will be a Super-Bowl spot but until then Vin Diesel has released a poster for the film:
Yesterday’s Super Bowl brought us a one-minute trailer promising us over the top action that might rival the safe-scene from Fast Five:
Furthermore there is now a synopsis promising us “one last job (this time for real unlike the very last job in Fast Five)” for Dom (Vin Diesel) and his team:
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in “Fast & Furious 6.” Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by badass series newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano.
Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian’s (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.
Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
Building on the worldwide blockbuster success of Fast Five and taking the action, stunts and narrative to even greater heights, “Fast & Furious 6? sees director Justin Lin back behind the camera for the fourth time. He is supported by longtime producers Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel, who welcome producer Clayton Townsend back to the series.
