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

March 17, 2011

Fast Five

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:

Fast Five Theatrical Poster

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 like how the size of the actors reflects their importance in the movie. This way even audiences not familiar with the franchise yet get to know that Vin Diesel is the big shot, closely followed by Paul Walker, and while Tyrese Gibson is not -as- big of a deal as Dwayne Johnson, he at least comes out on top on the other people in the background. I mean, shit, Jordana Brewster couldn't even make it past that car!

lol, that's an excellent way to put it. Even though I really don't get why Gibson is in it...2F2F seemed more like a spin-off if you ask me.

at first glance i thought it was a poster for LOST or something.

Roderick on Mar 18, 2011


I don't know guys... the logo should probably be smaller.

Wouldnt be so bad if half the poster wasnt the friggin they even look at these things before they release em? As for the movie, its F and F its dumb to expect anything deep from it, but the trailer has got me thinkin it could be one helluva popcorn action flick.

Worse photoshop I've ever seen for a movie poster - and that's coming from a photoshop amateur.

Zhu_chuan on Mar 18, 2011


"Takers" wa the worst photoshop poster ever

Grendel on Mar 18, 2011


I'm sure if they tried harder, they could have made that logo much smaller.

At least don't cut off the feet, move the bottom images up an inch! Man how did these people get these Design jobs!!!???? Sign me up please!!!

Nate on Mar 18, 2011


Hahaha, omg, that is terrible. xD They really wanted to feature eeeevery character of movie on this poster, completely throwing perspective and proportion out of the window. But hey, at least it's not a floating heads poster, right? And it still isn't as bad as those unfinished looking X-Men: First Class posters. *shudder*

Yeah, pretty weak looking poster.

Snears on Mar 18, 2011


How can a movie have cool trailer, yet a lame poster?

Lamar on Mar 18, 2011


Just another bad poster. Vin diesel looks like he is suffering from back ache.

Aniruddha Chowkidar on Mar 18, 2011


damn it seems like they are giving a crap less about posters these days...with this and those lame Xmen posters

Croniccris on Mar 18, 2011


Just throwing it out there, I don't think Fast Five will be in 3D just says "Imax" not "Imax 3D".
