Extended Fast & Furious 6 trailer is basically what you'd expect it to beTue, 05 Feb 2013 00:00:00 -0800
At 3 minutes, 22 seconds, the newly released Fast & Furious 6 trailer is exactly 3.2 times longer than the Super Bowl commercial, but it seems to contain roughly the same amount of plot. There are tense moments between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, a tank, a Euro Ford Escort and various Fiat/Mopar products.
There is a Jensen Interceptor.
Fortunately, both teasers seem to hint at enough action to fill a 90-minute feature, because we don't think the plot is going to get any more complex than The A-Team with cars. Put the team back together, stop some criminal masterminds, save the world. For all we know, Fast & Furious 6 could represent the first in a lucrative series of cross-franchise series reboots. Fast Hard and Fast Hard 2: Furious Harder, anyone?
We realize that it's very formulaic, but then, so is every blockbuster romantic comedy. And romantic comedies aren't known for their automotive eye candy.
Look for much, much more on this Oscar-bound cinematic experience as its May 24 release date approaches.
Editor's note: The press release notifying us of the new trailer began with the phrase, "Boom! FAST & FURIOUS 6 Extended First Look is here and we've graduated to a whole new level." Indeed.
