If the 3.5-minute version of the trailer for Fast & Furious 6 was simply too much to handle for you, Universal Pictures has done the kind act of giving us a truncated theatrical trailer. Likely showing ahead of A Good Day to Die Hard starting today, this one simply takes the structure of the previous look, filled with car mayhem, and condenses it to just over two-and-half minutes.
But that’s not the only thing we have from Justin Lin‘s upcoming blockbuster. This can be considered major spoilers for the upcoming sixth film, but Ain’t It Cool News has learned of an action star who will be featured briefly in this upcoming film before taking on the main villain role in Fast & Furious 7.
Turn away now if you don’t want to know (seriously, stop reading if you must), but it is none other than Jason Statham, who was previously rumored for this film. One can head over to their site to see all the details and just exactly how he ties into this upcoming film, but for now, check out the new trailer below for the film starring Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, Gina Carano, Michelle Rodriguez, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Luke Evans and Elsa Pataky.
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in Fast & Furious 6. Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by badass series newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano.
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.
Building on the worldwide blockbuster success of Fast Five and taking the action, stunts and narrative to even greater heights, Fast & Furious 6 sees director Justin Lin back behind the camera for the fourth time. He is supported by longtime producers Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel, who welcome producer Clayton Townsend back to the series.
Fast & Furious 6 arrives on May 24th.
