Industry insiders (you know, the people who get paid to make up this stuff?) are predicting a $45 million or more opening weekend for the latest “Fast and Furious” sequel, officially known as “Fast & Furious”, because calling it “The Fast and Furious 4” would be just too pretentious. Directed by Justin Lin, who also helm the previous installment, the fourth outing reunites the franchise’s original stars, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, and Michelle Rodriguez. The film opens tomorrow April 4th, and this is your “Fast & Furious” Open Discussion Thread.
Heading back to the streets where it all began, two men rejoin two women to blast muscle, tuner and exotic cars across Los Angeles and floor through the Mexican desert. When a crime brings them back to L.A., fugitive ex-con Dom Toretto reignites his feud with agent Brian O’Connor. But as they are forced to confront a shared enemy, Dom and Brian must give in to an uncertain new trust if they hope to outmaneuver him. And from convoy heists to precision tunnel crawls across international lines, two men will find the best way to get revenge: push the limits of what’s possible behind the wheel.
