First Look: Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson in 'Fast Five' Sequel

Fast and Furious

While I've found the Fast & the Furious franchise losing a lot of speed and fury over the years, apparently fans and Universal still think there's enough gas in the tank for another sequel (maybe even two). That train of thought brings us to Fast Five, another fast-paced sequel from director Justin Lin with franchise stars Paul Walker and Vin Diesel on the run from a legendary law man played by Dwayne Johnson. Now we have our first look at the tough guy face-off with the first image from the sequel where Diesel and Johnson don't seem to be very fond of one another. Also, be sure to check back tomorrow around noon for a trailer.

Here's the first image from Fast Five courtesy of USA Today:

Fast Five first look

Since Brian (Walker) and Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster) broke Dominic (Diesel) out of custody, find themselves backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro and 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 hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) is also on their tail and he never fails. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them, but soon learn they can't separate the good guys from the bad. Fast Five is slated to race into theaters on April 29th, 2011. Sound good?

  • I'm actually excited about this.
  • I dug the last film, in fact I think it's the best of the series. I didn't like 2, thought that 3 had a lot of style, but was out of place... but the 4th was a blast. I also like the idea of these two manly men going head to head... DREAMY! LOL
  • Wow...the Rock's career has swerved out of control and hit the wall (no pun intended)
    trailer you say 😀 tommorrow you say 😀 now this i like 😀 hahhaa
  • A5J4DX
    yhh mn looks sik!
  • sam
    woot woot... cant wait for tomorrow
  • McWilly
    Im In! Ive always wanted these two to clash.... Dwayne looks like the big brother
  • JT
    The Rock trying to look like Stone Cold Steve Austin here....maybe because Austin's career isn't as bad 😛 relax, only kddin!
  • Want to see the damn trailer!!!
  • judasbarron
    Rock looks bigger than normal. This should begood!
  • Sumit
    Rock looks like a badass! Vin has met his match!
  • Voice of Reason
    Guess I'm the minority, but this pic confirms I (still) have no interest in these movies whatsoever.
    So they gave The Rock a Goatee because from a marketing standpoint, two bald, muscular half-black guys will confuse people hahaha. These two guys look like they are about to make out. I only saw the first film...I'm kind of just kidding with the shit talk, I liked the first one for what it was...extremely dumb fun...I've always wanted to sit down and watch the whole series.
  • Jericho
    ok NOW i am excited
  • SkaOreo
    I'm down. The Fast and the furious series are admittedly stupid films, but that's kind of the reason why I enjoy them. Also I dug the last one, so I'll probably catch this one On Demand or something.
  • Chocolate Supra
    Waiting for the trailer for this one, as my excitement for this movie hinges on the cars they use. I want to see the Supra return to the franchise with a bodykit/color that doesn't induce vomiting, and the NSX that Jordana was driving in the end of the last one should come back, too. If there's another Evo, however, I'm out.
  • Josef
    I actually enjoyed the last Fast and Furious film. Part II and III; not as much. I will definitely see this.
  • KING
    nice. cant wait to check out this trailer finally it seems. i prefered the 4th one. hopefully this one will be good. the 2nd one jus sucked. didnt make sense, 3rd one had sumtin different. 1st was an orginal. we'll see bout this one. cant wait to catch it tomorrow.
  • Mayhem
    @ 13, LINKFX, Dwayne Johnson is NOT half black. He is Samoan. As far as the Furious Five goes, I am interested to see, just to see the cars and the amazing race and chase sequences you KNOW will be in it.
  • I really hope they kiss in that scene, it'd be perfect.
  • jah p
    @19 are you on crack? Dwayne's father is the former WWF afrcian american wrestler Rock Johnson! His mother is Samoan!
  • Xerxex
    No CGI cars, no CGI cars! NO CGI CARS!!!!!
  • Jimmy Love
    I just wanna see more of the chick in the white shirt from the last movie! she was hot! even thought it was obviously cold.
  • Lacey
    This made my day! I can't wait to see the trailer!! LOVE me some Paul Walker!! And the Rock is going to be the icing on the cake of this movie! SO looking forward to it!!!
  • Works for me. Look, the FATF films aren't high art, but dammit, they're a hell of a lotta fun, and the fourth film was great. Plus, Vin and the Rock together in one film....yeah, I would go to see that. @22: Sorry Xerxex, but sometimes they gotta put 'em in there or use CG to enhance the scene. But hell, I guess screaming "NO CGI CARS!!" on a website will change things, right? (Hint: it won't.)
  • Xerxex
    IT WILLL MARC!!!!! IT WILL. by no cgi cars I'm talking about the scene in Fast and Furious where they go through the mine, worst cgi ever.
  • Akirakorn
    @ Xerxex... worst CGI in F&F franchise maybe, but not worst CGI ever. I'm not even talking early CGI, I'm talking Wolverines adamantium claws in X-Men Origins, and even worse Pettigrew's super shiny new liquid metal T-1000 hand in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
  • Xerxex
    Ah! Don't remind me of those claws in Wolverine Akriakorn! *shudders* horrible.
    LMAO at # 19 ....example of idiot speaking and acting like he knows what he's talkin about...#21 FTW
  • lamar
    Yeah, the two guys who should've been in The Expendables going head to head. Vin is still clipping Bad-A coupons from Riddick and Dwayne is still cool (albeit The Tooth Fairy was just...ugh) because the Rundown is a great movie.
  • freudian slip
    Brahama Bull lmao
