Universal Pictures has released 14 new hi-resolution images and four wallpapers for the upcoming sequel in the Fast and the Furious franchise called Fast Five, which is set in Rio De Janeiro, reteams original stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster and is directed by Justin Lin (Fast and Furious, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift).
In this installment, former cop Brian O’Conner (Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) 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 (Dwayne Johnson) 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.
The film also stars Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon, Don Omar, Elsa Pataky and Joaquim de Almeida.
Fast Five (Fast and Furious 5) hits theaters and IMAX April 29, 2011.
