Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
Fast & Furious 6 SynopsisVin 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.

Why Fast & Furious 6 And 7 Featured Way Less Of One Character
The Fast and Furious movies seem to only be getting bigger as time goes on. Bigger stunts, bigger dollars, and bigger stars have been hallmarks of the latter movies in the series. This made the fact that one actor’s role seems to have been shrinking recently seem odd.

This Week In Home Entertainment: Fast & Furious, Despicable Me 2 And More
There can’t be any talk about this latest Fast & Furious release without a nod to the late Paul Walker. I watched the Blu-ray edition for the latest movie in the franchise, Fast & Furious 6, just a short time after news of Walker’s untimely death hit the press.

The Purge Runs Wild On Way To Huge Friday At Box Office
The history of Hollywood is littered with low budget horror movies that wildly exceeded expectations. From Paranormal Activity to Saw, these films have not only generated incredible returns on initial investments, they’ve launched lucrative franchises, and if this weekend’s early estimates hold up, it seems a new horror movie may add its name to that pool of brilliant and bloody successes.

Fast & Furious 6 Featurette Explores The Breathtaking Finale
Visual Effects Supervisor David Vickery steps us through the marriage of in-camera stunt work and CGI effects that were blended to create the movie's most mind-blowing moments. See, Lin knew that part of the magic of Fast and Furious is that the audacious stunts look like they were actually performed, not constructed with computer imaging.

Now You See Me Tops After Earth At The Thursday Night Box Office
It looks like Now You See Me has already pulled a box office rabbit out of its figurative hat, by topping After Earth at the box office on Thursday night. The Summit film arrived in theaters last night and managed to bring in $1.5 million for its Thursday night haul, a half-million more than was earned by After Earth, which took in $1 million.

Do Fast & Furious Stars Still Look Cool In Kiddie Cars?
The Photoshops are pretty damn funny, with the stars of the franchise added to the plastic kid cars we all stared practicing on when we were children. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson firing a gun over the smiley face of on the Little Tike car is mildly disturbing. But Paul Walker seems to fit right in with the concept.

Fast & Furious 6 Comes Out On Top At Memorial Day Weekend Box Office
Fast & Furious 6 roared into theaters this weekend, and if the estimates hold true, the film has secured itself a high spot on the list of successful Memorial Day openers. It hasn't quite topped Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End or Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but it's in that ballpark, with reports putting the action film's 4-day estimate at about $120 million.

How Fast & Furious Used A TV Trope To Make The Most Exciting Movie Universe
After a sequel that brought back Paul Walker but not Dominic Torretto, Lin was charged with continuing the series with a film set in Tokyo, featuring none of the characters from the original The Fast and the Furious. Lin played most of the movie straight, setting up a story about an American kid getting into the drift racing scene of Tokyo, and getting away from the original film entirely… except for the last shot

Watch Fast & Furious 6 Directed By Sofia Coppola, Jim Jarmusch And Terrence Malick
From mimicking the pink pantied opening shot of Lost In Translation to aping Jarmusch's offbeat aesthetic, and spoofing Malick's dreamy visuals and heady voice over, Benjamin nails these mismatches with sly style. And, yes, the choices are absurd, but also kind of awesome.

Hear Me Out: Is Fast & Furious 6 Hinting At The Rock Joining The Avengers?
Why all The Avengers references? I would assume the superhero flick's sheer popularity was reason enough for these references, if it weren't that each one is directed at The Rock. 'Want does it mean?' I wondered. The more I thought about it, the more I suspected that Lin and his cast might be tipping a bit of potential casting news.

So, seriously 2013 blockbusters, what do you have against London? The city has replaced New York as the go-to metropolis for destruction seemingly overnight, and for no particular reason we can discern. Sure, London has been having its own cultural moment lately, hosting the Summer Olympics last summer, bringing James Bond back to home turf in last year's Skyfall

Fast & Furious 6 Final Trailer Destroys A Highway And Shows Off New Villain
Well this second and final trailer for Fast & Furious 6 certainly gets its payoff from the CinemaCon footage Eric got to see a couple of weeks ago. Lots of great action scenes take place with all amounts of Hell breaking loose in the middle of a busy highway, and the end of this trailer puts this large-scale sequence front and center.

The Rock Ponders The Road In His Own Fast And Furious 6 Poster
Sure, there's probably something written in the contracts for Fast & Furious 6 that The Rock is not the only star, that he and Vin Diesel and Paul Walker share top credits, or that the cars are somehow the leads. But let's be real. It's not a coincidence that Fast Five jolted the franchise into the stratosphere at the exact moment that The Rock joined the team, and it's not a coincidence that The Rock is part of the best moments of the film we've seen so far

So now we all know that Justin Lin, after directing four of the films that fall under the racing franchise that is mostly fast and also furious, will not be back to direct Fast & Furious 7: American Shenanigans, or whatever it ends up being called. I mean, the sixth installment in this seemingly endless string of films hasn’t even come out yet – that happens on May 24 – but news about the sequel is already zipping around corners and leaving other film rumors in its dust.

How Fast And The Furious Is Using The Internet To Take Over The World
Since its inception back in 2001, the Fast and Furious franchise's path of success has taken the shape of the world's wildest roller coaster. While the first movie was a big hit, making over $200 million worldwide on a tiny $38 million budget, but the series stalled with its second and third installments, which broke normal Hollywood trends by making less money with each new movie. And then the bounce back came.

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?

Vin Diesel Reveals New Look At Fast Six
Vin Diesel loves his Facebook page. Throughout production on the upcoming Riddick movie the actor constantly posted photos from the set, and while we don't know if he was actually given permission to post the images, the real question is, who is going to stop him if he doesn't have permission? Something tells me that there aren't many lawyers out there that would be up for the gig. So, naturally, he's keeping the stream of on-set pictures coming, but now he's working on a whole new movie: Fast Six.

Dwayne Johnson Causes Destruction On The Set Of Fast Six
Dwayne Johnson is pretty damn badass. Of course, it's kind of hard to make the determination about just how badass he is. There's no number scale to determine it and ranking him against other badasses isn't the most accurate way to go about it. Instead it's best to judge a badass by his actions, and I'll tell you this: doing anything so awesome that the ceiling falls down is totally badass.
