Fast Five 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.

Why You Should Rethink The Fast & Furious Franchise Why You Should Rethink The Fast & Furious Franchise
Katey, I was most surprised to find that the second trailer to completely blow me away (after the Iron Man 3 spot, which was fantastic) was the trailer for Fast and the Furious 6. That series has completely shifted gears -- pun intended -- from the dregs of Tokyo Drift and the bland fourth installment. Fast Five put it back on the right track, and I'm not ashamed to say that I'm genuinely looking forward to a F&F sequel. Are you with me?

Dwayne Johnson Shares Updates On The Next Two Fast And The Furious Movies Dwayne Johnson Shares Updates On The Next Two Fast And The Furious Movies
And with news of how to watch the fifth film for cheap, we also have an update on the status of what’s ahead for the franchise. We knew that the sequel to Fast Five would be split into two films, and there was apparently talk of the movies being filmed back-to-back, however, from what Dwayne Johnson says, that's no longer the case.

Fast Five Leads List Of 2011's Most Pirated Movies Fast Five Leads List Of 2011's Most Pirated Movies
Justin Lin’s lucrative sequel, Fast Five, roared to a $626.1 million worldwide take, making it the highest-grossing film in the franchise’s history. Imagine how much more it could have made, though, if 9.2 million people didn’t illegally download Five to their computer, robbing Lin (and Universal) of some hard-earned cash?

Vin Diesel Says The Next Fast And Furious Sequel Will Be Split Into Two Films Vin Diesel Says The Next Fast And Furious Sequel Will Be Split Into Two Films
If you’re up to date on the Fast and Furious movies, or at the very least, if you saw Fast Five, you’re aware that the franchise, which hit the decade-mark this year, took a turn with the last film, veering away from the street racing element that played a large role in the earlier films, and aiming more for an action thriller, as the characters attempted to pull off a heist.

It wasn't a surprise that Fast Five made a lot of money. With the exception of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, all of the other films in the franchise made over $100 million at the domestic box office and the fourth installment, Fast and Furious, had made the most money yet.

Fast Five Amps Up For DVD Release With Cast Interviews Fast Five Amps Up For DVD Release With Cast Interviews
Universal Home Entertainment is currently readying for an October release of Fast Five. It’s a late release for a movie that hit theaters mid-spring, but that’s only because Universal is unveiling a new app with the release. To tide its hungry fans over, the company has released some short cast interviews, which mostly just prove how irrelevant Paul Walker has become in pop culture.

The box office has been hungering all year for a hit to help break its ticket sales slump. Leave it to the fourth sequel in a hit and miss franchise to get the run up to summer jump started. Fast Five sped into theaters this weekend, hauling away over $83 million. That's the biggest opening for a movie in the Fast/Furious franchise. It's also more than the third film, Tokyo Drift made in US sales during its entire run.

I checked out on the Fast and the Furious franchise after the second one. I had a good time with the second one, Tyrese makes the movie, but for me that was enough. Until now that is. The new entry, Fast Five, brings all the franchise cast members together in one big mega-film and, that seems like a lot of fun.

I'm not sure there are too many people out there who could tell you with a straight face that the Fast and the Furious movies are particularly well-written. Are they full of action? Absolutely. Is there plenty of eye candy for both men and women? Of course. Is the dialogue amazing and the story well crafted? Not so much.

Second Poster For Fast Five Isn't Nearly As Exciting As The First Second Poster For Fast Five Isn't Nearly As Exciting As The First
Back in February the first poster for Fast Five debuted. Surprisingly filled with a lot of negative space with all of the action happening at the bottom, I thought it was a pretty cool poster, particularly because it was flashy without being stupid and didn't contain any dumb floating heads. The second time around they've kept the negative space idea, but removed what was really interesting.
