Fast & Furious 6 Gets An Official Plot Synopsis

The latest installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise is coming out this May, but you may have noticed that there are still a few missing details about the movie - namely all of them. Not only do we not have a trailer yet, we have zero clue what the film is about. But we are starting to learn a few more details about the movie. For one, the film is officially called Fast & Furious 6 (not Fast Six as had been predicted after Fast Five) and this Sunday the Super Bowl broadcast will include the first ever footage from the film. Even better, you don't have to wait until then to find out about the plot.

In advance of the big game spot, Universal has revealed the official synopsis for the new Justin Lin-directed action flick. As previously reported the movie will be taking the infamous crew led by Paul Walker and Vin Diesel to Europe, but what you may not know is that they're missing home something fierce. Check out the details below.

Vin 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.

There are still some mysteries left to be solved, including how Gina Carano's character will play into the plot, but if that question isn't answered by upcoming trailers or the Super Bowl ad then perhaps it will just be a cool surprise left for the theatrical release.
