Check This Out: Sleek First Poster for Universal's 'Fast Five' Arrives

Zoom! I tried not to use a cheesy opener, but couldn't help myself. Universal has debuted the first poster on IGN for their upcoming sequel Fast Five, the fifth movie in the Fast and the Furious franchise that brings back Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris, and also introduces Dwayne Johnson into the mix. The first car-chase-packed trailer debuted in December, and now we have a poster to go along with it. This is seemingly inspired by that Buried poster that topped a lot of Best of 2010 lists, but I still like the design, it's simple and sleek and doesn't have any floating heads. Check it out below!
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.
I've so far liked the Fast and The Furious films, but only the ones pertaining to Brain and Dom not the sequels in between, and Dwayne Johnson vs. Vin Diesel will be a sight to see.

Am I the only one that liked 2Fast2Furious??? Paul and Tyrese had great chemistry together, which was the only reason 2F2F didn't (totally) suck. Not to dump on Hauser or Mendes but the "bad guys" were oh so lame... in ALL the sequels.

Eh nothing special really. Nice to see them back in their cars.. why is Walker in a muscle car? He's been all about the Asian models for the most part. I want a Tokyo Drift 2. That was the funnest in the series.

Awful poster, but I'm looking forward to the movie.

Ludacris was already introduced in the 2nd movie.

looks so photo shopped... especially all that text over that picture. what were they thinking?

It's called a movie poster.. if they didn't put text on it.. it would defeat it's purpose. It's not one of those movies where you can just throw up a picture of Capt. America's shield and everybody will recognize it. It does suck as a poster but not because they "used photoshop".

If you look at this in the right context, you totally dig into it.

This film is amazing, best one yet and whats even better is writer chris morgan has been assigned to write a sixth even before this one was released. Went to see it last night. As for those of you questioning the appearance of Han who died in tokyo drift, either tokyo drift was set further in the future than the year it was released because theres some pretty new cars in this film. I beleive it is anyway. At the end of this film Han says "what shall we do now" and a girl says to him
