Lame New Poster for 'Fast Five' Will Probably Have You Fast Asleep

As someone who mostly hates this speedy franchise, I'll be the first to admit that the first full trailer for Fast Five is full of some pretty ridiculous, but mighty cool action sequences. And while the first poster for the film wasn't exactly thrilling, it was still pretty slick. However, new poster uses the same dead space approach from the first one, but combines it with some terrible photoshop that makes the entire cast of the film, including Paul Walker and Vin Diesel, look like they're just hanging out in some kind of parking lot in the sky. I'd like to think that maybe this has some deeper meaning behind it, but not for this franchise.
Here's the boring poster which showed up at the official Facebook page for Fast Five:
Dom (Diesel) and his team of top racers find themselves on the wrong side of the law again as they try to switch lanes between a ruthless drug lord who wants them dead and a relentless federal agent (Johnson).
Fast Five is again directed by Taiwanese director Justin Lin, who previously helmed Better Luck Tomorrow, Spotlighting, Annapolis as well as Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and 2009's last sequel Fast & Furious. The screenplay was written by Chris Morgan, of Cellular, Wanted, Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious as well as the upcoming 47 Ronin. Universal is bringing Fast Five to theaters everywhere 3D on April 29th this summer.
