It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 15 years since The Fast and the Furious hit theaters. At one time, it felt like the franchise might run out of gas, but once Dwayne Johnson arrived on the scene to help beef up the action in Fast Five, the game changed. Since then, the franchise realizes its potential to become an over-the-top action franchise with just the right amount of heart, and we apparently have one whole trilogy left to go.
For those who are feeling a little nostalgic for the original 2001 movie’s 15th anniversary, we have good news. You’ll be able to see the movie in theaters again this summer on the exact day it hit theaters a decade and a half ago. Get the details on The Fast and the Furious in theaters after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Briefly: The sixth movie in the Fast & Furious franchise isn’t much more than an early script draft right now, but it already has a release date. Universal has just claimed May 24 2013, aka Memorial Day ’13, like Marvin the Martian spiking a flag into a planetoid, crying out “I claim this date in the name of cars!” (Shoot me now. I demand that you shoot me now!) Justin Lin is likely to direct, making this his fourth film in the series, and we know that it will carry forward the Ocean’s 11 vibe that was introduced in the most recent episode. Chris Morgan, who penned the last three films, is writing this one, too.
Fast & Furious 6 isn’t a very elegant title, though. Too bad The Fast and the Furry-ous is already taken. (Universal also dated R.I.P.D., with Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, for June 28, 2013.) [Deadline]
Universal is preemptively prepping the sixth entry in the [The] Fast and/or [the] Furious saga — having already hired on the series’ go-to writer to tackle the screenplay — and based on how well Fast Five is performing in the territories it’s already been released, their hubris will likely pay off. But that doesn’t mean they intend to just keep milking the franchise until it runs its course. Oh, they’ll keep milking it alright, but their strategy is to mix up the genre appeal of the films, hopefully generating interest among those who have previously written them off as being nothing more than dumb action films for car nuts.
