As much as you deny liking the Fast and Furious franchise, you’re probably going to go check out the fifth installment of the series in theaters on April 29, 2011. Director Justin Lin returns with Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, adding Dwayne Johnson and Ludacris to cast.
According to Universal Pictures, the storyline is as follows:
Former cop Brian O’Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on their tail. Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey… before someone else runs them down first.
