Why mess with a good thing? That seems to be the strategy when it comes to the Fast and Furious movie franchise. The fifth (yes, fifth) installment of the movie so-uniquely named Fast Five is coming next summer, and a trailer for it was released today. Basically, it looks like more of the same, but with some new talent and more intense action.
It's also got more cheesy lines like: "This just went from mission impossible to mission freakin' insanity." But hey, you know what you're going to get when you go to one of these flicks.
And since they have raked in half a billion dollars in the last decade, clearly fans are more interested in the driving than the dialogue.
The most interesting change in the latest one comes from the addition of Dwayne Johnson, aka "The Rock," to the cast. He plays a cop who's out to catch Brian and Dom (Paul Walker and Vin Diesel).
"If you're going to do a Fast and Furious movie, you've got to go bigger each time," director Justin Lin told USA Today. "People thought it would be impossible to get Dwayne. But he didn't show up looking to cash a paycheck. That's pretty amazing, for a star like him to join the fifth part of a franchise. That says a lot about him and the fans."
A "star like him"? Hmmm ... but really, who else could better fit in with this cast?
In the clip, Diesel promises to do just this one last job and "then we'll disappear forever." Somehow I doubt it.
