Oh, “Fast & Furious 6” – I knew that your Superbowl teaser trailer wouldn’t let me down. Go watch it here. You’ll know it when you see it – it’s the one where everything is (A) blowing up (B) about to blow up or (C) is newly recovering from having recently been explodified.
The word “AmazeBananas”, which I’ve just coined in reaction to this teaser, is the only possible response to it. Well, that and ‘remember when they just used to nick the odd DVD player or six – talk about changing your career trajectory’. The “Fast and Furious” crew, having stolen and wrecked most of downtown Rio in the last movie (spoilers!) armed with only a couple of muscle cars and some comedy bickering, have now graduated to the world stage. Witness the trailer, which zips from London to Ibiza and thence Germany with nary a breath taken between awesome car stunts and shots of the cast looking super-buff. We’re through the looking glass, people – it’s heist time, global style.
Expect stunts, more stunts, some gratuitous booty shaking which reminds you that the import tuner scene doesn’t exactly pass feminist analysis with flying colours, Vin and Mr The Rock buff-bonding in a wholly non-homoerotic fashion (clothes-line!), European locations (oh, hai there, London Village!) and the most ludicrous, trailer-capping action sequence that I’ve seen since the train job in, oh, “Fast Five“. Cargo plane – that’s all I’m saying.
By the looks of things, the only way to ramp up the seemingly inevitable seventh entry in the series is to set it on Mars (Don’t give Justin Lin any ideas).
Want now. Is it May yet?
