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

Sakyo on Dec 13, 2010
Rock looks bigger than normal. This should begood!
judasbarron on Dec 13, 2010
Rock looks like a badass! Vin has met his match!

Guess I'm the minority, but this pic confirms I (still) have no interest in these movies whatsoever.
Voice of Reason on Dec 13, 2010
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.
LINKFX on Dec 13, 2010
ok NOW i am excited

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.

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.
Chocolate Supra on Dec 13, 2010
I actually enjoyed the last Fast and Furious film. Part II and III; not as much. I will definitely see this.
Josef on Dec 13, 2010
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.
KING on Dec 13, 2010
@ 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.
Mayhem on Dec 13, 2010
I really hope they kiss in that scene, it'd be perfect.
Crapola on Dec 13, 2010
@19 are you on crack? Dwayne's father is the former WWF afrcian american wrestler Rock Johnson! His mother is Samoan!

No CGI cars, no CGI cars! NO CGI CARS!!!!!
Xerxex on Dec 13, 2010
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.
Jimmy Love on Dec 13, 2010
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!!!
Lacey on Dec 13, 2010
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.)
Marc McKenzie on Dec 13, 2010
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.
Xerxex on Dec 13, 2010
@ 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.
Akirakorn on Dec 13, 2010
Ah! Don't remind me of those claws in Wolverine Akriakorn! *shudders* horrible.
Xerxex on Dec 13, 2010
LMAO at # 19 ....example of idiot speaking and acting like he knows what he's talkin about...#21 FTW
TRUE BLUE SPIDER-MAN FAN on Dec 13, 2010
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.
