'Fast and Furious 6' speeds into theaters this weekend, so we thought it would be fun to take a drive down memory lane to look at the cast of the film way back when the franchise started back in 2001. (For those actors/characters who weren't in the earlier films, we found photos of them from back when 'The Fast and the Furious' debuted.) Read on to see what your favorite cast members looked like then and what they're up to now.
Fast and Furious 6
One of the biggest stars in the 'Fast and Furious' movies isn't just Vin Diesel or Paul Walker - it's the location. Whether it's Tokyo or Brazil or Spain or London, each installment has upped the ante to a new, exotic locale. So what does 'Fast and Furious 7' have in store for us? Today we learn from star and producer Diesel that the next film will take place primarily in the Middle East.
'Fast and Furious 6' hits theaters next week, May 24, bringing back some of your favorite franchise mainstays to go up against Luke Evans' band of vigilante auto-mercenaries. But, without a doubt, one of the best parts of this new adventure is the epic "cat fight" between Michelle Rodriguez's Letty and Gina Carano's Riley. To prep you for the awesome action you'll see, check out this new behind-the-scenes footage of the bombshell-filled sequences.
'Fast Five' attempted - and quite successfully I might add - a reboot of sorts for the entire 'Fast and Furious' franchise, turning a series of movies about car racing into one exciting heist film. It was big and brash and sweaty and a complete success. So where do you go from there? 'Fast and Furious 6' attempts to answer that question by adding an -er suffix to all those adjectives above. Bigger, brasher, sweatier.
'Fast and Furious 6' is like 'Fast Five' on nitrous - director Justin Lin hits that proverbial turbo boost to go bigger, faster, stronger - and at times, that is a great thing. But when the NOS runs out, the drag race just turns into a drag.
This latest 'Fast and Furious 6' trailer is the most intense one yet! You don't wanna miss this...
If there's one thing that we know for sure, it's that there is no way that 'Fast and Furious 6' won't be one of this summer's biggest crowd pleasers. A new featurette about the latest entry in this seemingly unstoppable franchise has arrived and it's only managed to get us more excited about seeing this crew get back together.
A few days ago, we learned that director Justin Lin was bowing out of the 'Fast and Furious' franchise after directing four films in the series. While fans of the amazingly ridiculous action series wiped away their tears, Universal has been hard at work tracking down a new director for 'Fast and Furious 7,' which needs to get shooting as soon as possible if it wants to meet its Summer 2014 release date. And now a shortlist of filmmakers has emerged!
