Fast Five made $626 million back in summer 2011, delivering the world's first car chase involving two muscle cars tied to a giant safe. So what's Fast & Furious 6 got in store? Allow this new featurette to explain...
Unlike many other featurettes like it, this little gem boasts a decent chunk of brand new footage, with snippets of a Moscow helicopter attack, Dom relaxing in his extradition-free hidey-hole and plenty of Luke Evans in his Robot Wars-a-like tumbler-wannabe as he scoots around London, making cop cars fly into each other. Boom, and, indeed, kablammo.
Key lines: "So now we work for The Hulk?" (Tyrese Gibson talking about The Rock" and director Justin Lin on why supercop Luke Hobbs has turned to the Fast crew for help: "To catch wolves, you need wolves."
In case you hadn't got your head around the plot already, here it is:
This time around, Dom (Vin Diesel) and the gang have gone their separate ways after the big Rio job in Fast Five left them wealthy. But money, it seems, can’t buy happiness, a normal life or the chance to reconnect with family.
So when Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) comes to them with a proposal – help him take down a gang of skilled, mercenary drivers led by Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) in exchange for full pardons – they’re back in action. And the action, as you can see, is pretty damn huge.
Fast & Furious 6 hits UK cinemas on May 17. Start making "Brrrrrrm!" noises... now.
saw some of this being made at Canary Wharf - seems like they were also using it to sub for NYC or something as there were loads of fake yellow cabs hanging around.
Glad to see they're not going for the easy-sell Brit villain though - that'd be sooo tired! More
