‘Fast and Furious 6′ trailer: The Rock and Vin Diesel team up for ‘vehicular warfare’

- February 5th, 2013

During Sunday’s Super Bowl, we got a snippet of the action that awaits when Fast & Furious 6 hits screens May 24. Insane car flips, explosions and witty puns were just the tip of the iceberg.

And if you liked the little taste, an extended trailer that debuted this morning shows stunts that border on the ridiculous. We get tank action and exploding planes as well. All matter of “vehicular warfare” ensues.

I’ll have seconds, thanks.

At the end of the fifth film, DSS Agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson) had given Dominic Torretto (Vin Diesel), Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and the rest of their outlaw crew from the the series a running start. A post-credits scene revealed Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Dom’s girlfriend, who he thought was dead, is very much alive.

But if you thought No. 6 would be one long chase with Hobbs tracking Torretto’s gang (cough, me), you’d be wrong. In the new film, Hobbs and Torretto team up to go after former spec-ops soldier Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) who runs a criminal organization.

Torretto agrees in order to get back Letty, who may not be the Letty we all remember. Sorry, who was she again?

It’s not Star Wars, but the Fast & Furious series has gotten better with each new release (OK, there was a hiccup in the middle).

I’m also loving Gina Carrano as Hobbs’ kick-ass partner.

Check out the trailer below and let us know if you think this series is played out.
