Full Trailer for FAST & FURIOUS 6

After sporting an exciting 30-second spot during Sundays Super Bowl Universal has finally released a full length trailer for the upcoming sixth installment in the suddenly darling Fast & Furious franchise. I actually didn't see the The Fast and the Furious in theaters back in 2001, but have since seen each of its sequels during their theatrical run. Needless to say, I never had a huge sense of investment in the first film and would strongly agree with anyone that says these films get better as they go along. Having found a way to expand the universe and incorporate characters and storylines from each installment has allowed the films themselves to become more of their own entity and carve out something of a place for them in action movie history. They are big, loud, dumb, full throttle B-movie fun but they don't let that out of their mind and they deliver on the promise and premise of what these movies sit on. I was genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed Fast Five in 2011 and was anxious when plans were set to continue the series with at least two more films. The inclusion of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson also added to the fun and the hype that pitted the former wrestler and heir to the action movie throne against long time rival Vin Diesel. Their hand to to hand combat scene was worth the price of admission alone and it is good to see him back here. Appearing for the first time in the franchise is Luke Evans as the main antagonist who looks to be more memorable than any other typical Bond-like villain we've seen before as well as Gina Carano (Haywire) as an ass-kicking DSS Agent who assists The Rock. The film also stars Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Elsa Pataky, and Joe Taslim. Fast & Furious 6 opens May 24th. Hit the jump to watch the extended trailer.

Synopsis: 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.
