Usually it's pretty easy to figure out what will happen in The Fast and The Furious franchise. It's kind of hinted at in the name. Someone will invariably get at angry at someone else and then drive a souped up car at perilously high speeds. Don't get me wrong, it's a great formula. Despite this, information about Fast & Furious 6 has been pretty short-coming. In fact the whole production has been shrouded in some secrecy.
On Sunday, a lot of that shroud will hopefully be blown away. Cinemablend is reporting that Fast 6's first trailer will be shown during the Superbowl. This will be the first time any actual footage from the film has been seen by the public. BUT, if you want to check out the entire official synopsis, you don't have to wait long. Seriously, you've got to wait about 3 seconds. I've pasted it just below:
, and 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 , , , , , Chris "Ludacris" Bridges and are joined by badass series newcomers and .
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 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.
Ok, that sounds pretty cool, right? Seeing Johnson team up with Diesel again is certainly a surprise. After Fast Five, I kind of assumed they would be taking each other on. I mean, they do have some unfinished business. There is still one thing we've yet to see or hear about: The cars. We got a short video of Diesel burning some rubber in a nice looking muscle car, but apart from that we've hardly seen anything. Let's just hope the upcoming trailer pushes it up a gear.
