As promised, the boys and gals from Justin Lin’s “Fast and Furious 6”, the sixth installment in the vehicular mayhem franchise, has premiered its first trailer during the Super Bowl. What’s there to say except that yes, it’s as ridiculous and nonsensical as you thought it would be. Mind you, not that that’s a bad thing. This is the sixth movie in the franchise, after all, so why not have Vin Diesel driving through a plane and pitting him against a tank? That’s just basic sequel writing right there, folks.

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.
Starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Luke Evans, Elsa Pataky, and Gina Carano.
