One would think after Universal dropped the definite article from the title of The Fast and The Furious movies, that would be the end. But then Fast and Furious, the fourth film in the series, went on to gross $155 million including an insane $70 million opening weekend and everyone knew the fifth one was coming. And now it’s almost here.
Fast Five, starring Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster and Dwayne Johnson will hit theaters on June 10, 2011 from director Justin Lin, who also directed the previous two films. And though it has been rumored for a long time, the official plot synopsis finally confirms that not only will the film be set in Brazil but that it will incorporate characters from 2 Fast 2 Furious played by Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Tyrese Gibson and more. Hit the jump for the full cast list and plot synopsis. Read More »

Universal Pictures has released a new poster for Fast & Furious on ComingSoon. Normally I wouldn’t care enough to cover such a poster (we just don’t care about the movie, at all), but the image made me laugh (plus there is a lack of news due to the holiday). Is it just me or does Vin Diesel‘s head look extremely huge, especially in comparison to co-star Jordana Brewster? Is Vin Diesel’s head really that big in real life?
Universal has also released a new television spot for Fast & Furious, the fourth film in the Fast and the Furious series. While the last film focused on the art of drifting, it appears, at least from this commercial, that the fourth film is about cars and trucks insanely flipping over each other. Watch the tv spot after the jump.

The teaser trailer for Fast and Furious was attached to Death Race, and is now available online. We also have some new production photos above and after the jump. Original cast members Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster return, allowing Universal to use the tagline “New Model, Original Parts”. I think the truck hijacking is a clever but totally unbelievable callback to the original film. The montage that follows however, looks like more of the same. As always, tell me what you think in the comments below.

I’m about to make an admission that might make you question my overall taste in movies…
I didn’t hate the first Fast and the Furious movie. I actually thought it was a bunch of fun, in a don’t take it serious, laugh at the cheesiness type of way. That said, the other two films sucked worse than a Martin Lawrence movie. And this is coming from a guy who was actually looking forward to Tokyo Drift 1. because of the setting, and 2 because of the director Justin Lin, who had such a promising early start with the indie Better Luck Tomorrow. I always felt that one thing the sequels really lacked was the complete return of the original trio.
Well good news my friends, Michelle Rodriguez has signed on to reteam with Paul Walker and Vin Diesel (in more than a cameo) in the yet to be titled Fast and the Furious 4. It should be noted that Jordana Brewster is also returning for the fourth film. Does this mean the film has any chance of being good? Probably not… But it offers the hope of such.
The Fast and the Furious 4 hits theaters on June 5, 2009.
Discuss: Do you care more about Fast and the Furious 4 now that Michelle Rodriguez, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are all on board?
