Who knew that nearly ten years ago, The Fast and the Furious franchise would become so successful that a fifth movie would be made?! I guess Universal hoped it would happen but I don’t think anyone really thought they would. The first trailer for the fifth movie has just been released on this evening to follow in the succession of movie trailers which have been released over the last week with the run up to Christmas. If you’ve missed any of them, you can check them all out in our trailers section here.

Fast Five sees Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson,  Ludacris and The Rock himself, Dwayne Johnson all starring in the fifth movie which is helmed by Justin Lin who directed The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and Fast & Furious.

Synopsis: Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five.  In this installment, former cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law.  Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race.

Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities.  Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom.  As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead.  But he’s not the only one on their tail.

Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) never misses his target.  When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them.  But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad.  Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey…before someone else runs them down first.

Check out the brand new trailer below which is due out in the UK 29th April 2011.
