If you've been wondering just how happily ludicrous the action is going to get in next month's Fast & Furious 6, a new featurette is here to answer, "Very."
With just about one month until the sequel's May 24th release date, Universal Pictures has unveiled a new three minute, fourteen second featurette that mixes talking head interview snippets of the director, producer, and cast with a huge haul of wholly new footage. Basically, it's our best look thus far not just as the next-level action movie silliness Fast & Furious 6 has to offer, as well as a concise and revealing overview of the story and characters.
After plenty of public speculation over the last week, Universal Pictures has selected a director to take over the Fast & Furious franchise after the long tenure of Justin Lin.
The lucky helmer getting the job of directing next summer's Fast & Furious 7 is none other than James Wan, stepping up to his first franchise action movie.
It's been a busy quarter mile for Fast & Furious 6 as of late, but that stop Dominic Toretto from rounding up all his friends and heading to their local Sears for a big group photo.
That photo – with a background conveniently informing audiences that the new sequel heads to London and a few fast-looking cars reminding audiences that Fast & Furious 6 will indeed boast fast cars going fast – adorns the new one sheet for the sequel, in theaters this May 24th.
It's been a hell of a run, but Justin Lin's tenure with the Fast & Furious franchise apparently comes to an end this May with Fast & Furious 6.
The action lunacy hinted at in a new TV spot for this summer's Fast & Furious 6 has us thinking about how far this franchise has come.
A new featurette confirms what we already knew with a certainty: Fast & Furious 6 will have lots of action.
The first featurette promoting Fast & Furious 6 is not about the logistics of vehicular warfare.
Instead, it focuses on the return of Letty, a character who was thought to have met her demise a few movies ago.
Taking the promotion of this summer's Fast & Furious 6 a quarter mile at a time, Universal Pictures has jabbed the nitrous button, sending two substantial goodies from the automotive epic speeding online today.
These treats consist of the full theatrical trailer and a poster that puts Paul Walker's Brian O'Conner front and center.
Even thought we're going to emphasize it again shortly, let's get this out of the way: potential SPOILERS of the highest order for Fast & Furious 6 await you here, spoilers that would give away the upcoming sequel's ending and more.
After Fast Five showed that there's still plenty of gas left in this particular franchise tank, Universal Pictures wasted no time mobilizing another sequel. As the recent trailer demonstrates, the studio is going bigger on Fast & Furious 6, and it's in no way surprising that everyone concerned would like to hit the ground running on Fast & Furious 7. The studio even reportedly considered shooting the sixth and seventh installments simultaneously, but scrapped that plan, with Dwayne Johnson citing "weather issues."
So unless Fast & Furious 6 proves commercially disastrous, which is highly unlikely, we'll be getting Fast & Furious 7 in a few summers. And according to a new, wholly unverified rumor, director Justin Lin may already have cast the heavy for the seventh adventure so as to slide an ominous cameo into this May's Fast & Furious 6.
Dominic Toretto and Brian O'Conner have come so far in the four movies since they first lived life a quarter mile at a time in 2000's The Fast and the Furious. And now we have a pretty good idea of just what their next adventure will entail, as Universal Pictures has released the first official synopsis for the sixth installment, hitting theaters this summer.
