You can run but you can’t hide. The fifth instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise is hitting cinemas April next year and the trailer is already revving it on the interwebs. Dubbed Fast 5, the fifth instalment of the franchise manages to pull back all the lead characters from the previous four movies so you get Paul Walker and Vin Diesel reprising their roles as Dominic Toretto and Brian O’Conner with Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris and Sung Kang keeping them company while running the streets ragged.
Considering that Sung Kang’s character Han is here, we’re presuming it’s a prequel to Tokyo Drift as well, much like the fourth instalment was. This time around, the action takes place in Rio de Janeiro that sees the entire crew having to pull one last job for their freedom. Of course, the boys in blue stand in their way, led by none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
Judging from the trailer, the movie actually looks like it could be a decent watch with plenty of action, insane driving and disregard for blatant laws of physics. If you’re eagle-eyed enough, fill us in on any of the cars we might have missed but from what we can see, there’s an E39 5 Series, a pair of matte black Charger cop cars, a modded 350Z, the mandatory Porsches, a Ford GT, a Mongoose Motorsports Corvette Grand Sport Roadster replica and a Nissan GT-R.
Now remember to live your life two minutes at a time, because that’s how long the trailer is.
