All roads lead to this: Vin Diesel and Paul Walker starring in "Fast and Furious 6." The first "Fast 6" trailer debuted during the first quarter of Super Bowl XLVII.
Also starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster and other stars turned reckless drivers, "Fast and Furious 6" is a follow-up to massively successful "Fast Five." That film earned a surprising $626 million worldwide after its release in April of 2011, the highest total of any "Fast and Furious" film. All told, the "Fast and Furious" franchise has earned over $1.5 billion at the global box office, which is why we're on Vol. 6.
Directed by Justin Lin, his fourth spin in the director's chair of a "Fast and Furious" film, "Fast and Furious 6" takes place after the events of "Fast Five." The plot synopsis is below:
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.
Building on the worldwide blockbuster success of Fast Five and taking the action, stunts and narrative to even greater heights, Fast & Furious 6 sees director Justin Lin back behind the camera for the fourth time. He is supported by longtime producers Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel, who welcome producer Clayton Townsend back to the series.
