Fast And Furious 6 Super Bowl Trailer Brings Down An Airplane In Flames

The Fast and Furious franchise is all about unlikely friendships, and now it looks like we'll be getting a new one in Fast and Furious 6, with Dwayne Johnson's character reaching out to his former enemy, Vin Diesel's Dom Torretto. Naturally, a lot of car chases and mayhem ensues. Get your first look at it all in the first-ever trailer for Fast and Furious 6, which debuted during the Super Bowl.

I admit it: I laughed with glee when that car drove out of the front of the airplane. I have no idea how that's possible-- and I strongly suspect it's not--but it's exactly the kind of madness we've come to expect from the Fast franchise. And while Michelle Rodriguez's return as Letty isn't exactly a surprise, since it was teased at the end of Fast Five, it's good to see her have such a badass comeback, gun in hand.

Fast and Furious 6 is coming to theaters on May 24, with director Justin Lin returning along with most of the key members of the cast. Check out the official synopsis below, and for everything else we know about it, click here.

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.
