Posted on Thursday, February 14th, 2013 by Russ Fischer
Since Super Bowl weekend, Universal has been opening the doors on the Fast & Furious 6 garage. There’s the long Super Bowl spot and the 3 1/2 minute trailer that went online not long afterward. Now we’ve got a theatrical edit of that trailer, which you can check out below.
Along with that comes some potentially big spoiler info about the end of this movie, and the villain for the seventh film — and there will definitely be a seventh. We’ll keep quiet about that info until after the trailer embed below. And if you care about preserving some secrecy about where the sixth movie ends up, and what’s planned for the follow-up, just check out the trailer and be done.
Here’s the trailer:
And here’s the spoiler stuff. I won’t bold any names to prevent info jumping out at those who want to skip to the comments. AICN claims that Jason Statham will be the main bad guy in F&F7, playing the older brother to the character Luke Evans plays in F&F6. (You might recall that Statham was once rumored to play the baddie in 6.) What’s more, the site claims that this year’s film will loop back to the events of Tokyo Drift, finally explaining how that film fits into the overall timeline of the ever-more-extensive action series.
I’ll let you hit the source link for more details.
Fast & Furious 6 opens on May 24. Here’s a long synopsis:
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.
