As part of their 2009 preview, Universal has released new images from their upcoming movies for the new year, and one of them is the latest installment of “The Fast and Furious”, titled simply, “Fast and Furious” for reasons unknown and, I suppose, unimportant. All the boys and girls are back for this one, with Justin Lin returning behind the director’s chair after helming the last sequel, “Tokyo Drift”. Expect a lot of cars, guys with muscles, and hot girls in skimpy nightwear waving at said cars as they go vroom-vroom by them. And did I mention the cars?
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.
Starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, John Ortiz, Laz Alonso, Wilmer Calderon, Gal Gadot, and directed by Justin Lin.
The boys (and gals) are back April 3, 2009.
