Fast cars, big muscles and scantily clothed women might be distinguishing aspects of the Fast and Furious movies, but they’re not what makes them good. What makes (some of) the five previous films good are the human relationships. At its heart, the Fast and Furious films are about family and in the first featurette for Fast and Furious 6, that’s prominently on display.

In the following video, co-stars Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez discuss the relationship between their characters, the reveal that Rodriguez’s character, Leddy, would be returning, and how that messes with Dom’s state of mind. It’s a very different look at the May 24th release from Justin Lin. Read More »

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. Read More »

Super Bowl Sunday was a great day if you were a Baltimore Ravens fan, but it was pretty damn good day for Fast and Furious fans too. Universal dropped their first look at the upcoming Fast and Furious 6, the latest film in the action franchise about crime, fast cars, and huge set pieces. It blew away the competition. Today we get more.

Justin Lin returns for his fourth go-round in as director, and seems to have crafted an even faster and furious (er…) film this time around. Fresh off their massive heist in Brazil, Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) are back. This time, though, the special agent hired to bring them down (Dwayne Johnson) has a favor to ask. He needs to team up with Dom and Brian to bring down an even worse bad guy, played by Luke Evans. Throw in the return of Michelle Rodriguez‘s thought-to-be-dead character and May 24 can’t get here fast enough.

While the Super Bowl spot was great, below we have an “extended first look” at the film which combines the mind-blowing action from the Super Bowl with more story and explosions. Read More »
