We haven’t seen too much from Fast & Furious 6 yet, but Universal has apparently chosen Super Bowl weekend to get the marketing push started in earnest. A few days ago, they revealed the full synopsis, and earlier this weekend they unveiled the first poster. Now, in the middle of the big game, we’ve finally gotten our first look at some footage in the form of a 60-second TV spot. Check it out after the jump.

Fast Five wound up being one of 2011’s most unexpected pleasures, so hopefully we’re in for a treat when the first footage from Justin Lin‘s Fast and Furious 6 (or whatever it winds up being called) airs during the Super Bowl this weekend.

To prep fans for the unveiling, Universal has finally released an official synopsis explaining just what Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker), Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), and the rest of the gang will be up to in the new film — and how exactly Luke Evans‘ villain and the presumed-dead Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) factor in. Read it after the jump.

With Jack Reacher releasing in just a couple of weeks, that film’s writer/director Christopher McQuarrie is finally back on screens with a directing credit to follow his debut The Way of the Gun, which hit in 2000. McQuarrie is the lead choice to direct Tom Cruise (and presumably Jeremy Renner) in Mission: Impossible 5, and talked about the job recently to Graffiti Without Punctuation:

We’ve just started talking about it. He [Tom Cruise] is very busy with ‘All You Need is Kill’, JJ [Abrams] is very busy with ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, I’m busy promoting this movie. Obviously, I love working with him [Cruise] and would love to do it, it’s daunting in that I would have to follow Brad Bird… you know, the biggest movie of the genre. At the same time that’s kinda what I like about it, I like to come from a place of lowered expectation and I have to imagine that when they find out a filmmaker like me who feels, as someone put it earlier today ‘street level’… between ‘Way of the Gun’ and ‘Reacher’ and movies like that, I have to imagine that when it becomes real that people’s expectations could not be any lower.

After the break:

  • Fast and Furious 6 moves to LA for more shooting,
  • Additional effects footage shows up from The Host 2,
  • Rodrigo Santoro talks about the 300 prequel/sequel,
  • and new international posters hit for Riddick and G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
