Justin Lin returns behind the helm for his fourth outing in the series. And all that we’ve seen so far suggests it’s going to be absolutely immense.
Yesterday brought with it the news that Fast and Furious 6’s UK release date has been moved up a week. And to sweeten the deal, it came with an extended TV spot, too.
And with the weeks counting down, Sung Kang has now debuted the latest character poster on Twitter, featuring himself alongside Gal Gadot.
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.
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker take the lead of a brilliant cast once more. And they’re joined by Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Dwayne Johnson, Luke Evans, Joe Taslim, Tyrese Gibson, Gina Carano, Gal Gadot, Elsa Pataky, and the brilliant Sung Kang.
Lin is behind the camera once more, directing from a script penned by Chris Morgan, who’s written all the films Lin’s directed in the series.
Fast and Furious 6 will be released in UK cinemas on 17th May, following a week later with its US release date set for May 24th. For now, here’s the great new poster. I still can’t get enough of that tagline.
