'Fast And Furious 6' plot details revealed
The film's trailer is set to premiere during the Super Bowl this Sunday (February 3)
The official plot synopsis for Fast And Furious 6 has been released.
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez have all reprised their roles from previous films in the series, while British actor Luke Evans has joined the cast for their latest adventure. Filming began in London last July (2012) and other locations used included Liverpool, Los Angeles, Scotland and the Canary Islands.
Explaining the set-up of the new movie, Universal Pictures' synopsis begins: "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."
The synopsis continues: "Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organisation 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."
The first trailer is set to premiere during the Super Bowl this Sunday (February 3). Fast And Furious 6, whose official title has yet to be confirmed, will open in cinemas on May 24. The five previous F&F movies came out between 2001 and 2011 and collectively grossed over $1.5 billion (£950 million) worldwide.
