Fast & Furious 6 Poster Puts The Characters Ahead Of The Cars
The latest poster for the next installment to the Fast & Furious sequel reminds us that the movie arrives in theaters in a little over two months, right around the time when the Summer 2013 movie season will be roaring its engine, and hopefully already delivering on all of the potential and hype teased in the months leading up. In the case of Fast & Furious 6, all roads apparently lead to this.
Aside from the excellent tough-guy(/girl) poses, what I like about the latest poster, which was shared by Coming Soon, is that it literally puts the characters first, ahead of the cars and what appears to be a London backdrop. Sure, the Fast & Furious films offer some of the more exciting car chases and racing scenes we might see on the big screen that year, but there's also a character story involved, and a little investment in the likes of Dom, Brian, Mia and the rest of the crew goes a long way. Six movies - with a seventh possibly starting production this summer - is a long way for a franchise that hasn't required a reboot yet. Though, one could argue that Fast Five refilled the tank and pumped a bit of air into the franchise's tires.
Fast & Furious 6 appears to be the "all stars" edition, bringing actors from previous films - among them, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges - back together for one mega-crew of characters who will attempt to help Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) take down an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers in exchange for the opportunity to return home with full pardons. What do you offer a group of drivers whose last take was $100 million? Freedom is a priceless commodity.
Fast & Furious 6 arrives in theaters May 24. Check out the previously released posters and trailer here.
