Okay, this is a notice that what follows will be a spoiler. If you read it in full and complain about it, then that’s your problem. As the adage goes, “Don’t say I didn’t warn you.”
Now then, on to the Fast & Furiousix tidbit.
This summer we’ll get plenty of action-heavy sequels, but probably none will have the masculinity of Fast & Furious 6 (just as long as Dwayne Johnson refrains from doing the “Peck Pop of Love.”) You may be recall the ad that ran during Super Bowl only to have a bro-rific three-minute trailer play in the days that followed. And if that wasn’t enough of a testosterone-filled preview, well maybe the surprise after the end credits will be the piece that puts the Vin Diesel muscle car franchise in overdrive.
The guys at AICN are claiming that Jason Statham, who was at one time rumored to be the villain for F&F6, makes a cameo and will actually serve as the villain for Fast & Furious 7. AICN has the entire breakdown of the scene, which serves as both a tease for the next installment and ties in to Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift!
Like all spoilers, seeing is believing, but personally I am totally on board with this. While most action series seem to run out of steam (as the reviews of A Good Day to Die Hard seem to indicate), Fast & Furious seems to be hitting its stride of late. It’s rare that a late entry into a franchise can be considered the best of the lot, but that was achieved with Fast Five. And once the F&F series comes to an end, I can only hope that director Justin Lin continues to push the limits as an action filmmaker and also tell stories as good as his debut Better Luck Tomorrow.
Oh, and if that spoiler wasn’t enough, here’s a new trailer.
