Fast Five official synopsis Fast Five Image   Vin Diesel vs. Dwayne Johnson

Tomorrow brings the Fast Five trailer to your computer screens, but today we have an official image from the film to wet your appetite.

I’m sure the ladies more than the fellas will appreciate the sight of two of cinema’s leading tough guys – Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – standing face to face ready to throw down; for us guys, the photo hints that Fast Five is going to feature just as much action outside the fleet of sleek cars as it will behind the wheel.

For those who don’t know, here’s the Fast Five official synopsis:

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five. In this installment, former cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race.

Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they 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 he’s not the only one on their tail.

Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey…before someone else runs them down first.

Below you can check out the image of Diesel and Johnson (pretty hilarious name for a duo, BTW icon wink Fast Five Image   Vin Diesel vs. Dwayne Johnson ) getting all machismo on one another.

Am I the only one who can practically hear Diesel’s growling Dom Toretto voice? “You wanna take me in? You’ll have to total me first!” Oh yeah… allusions to hot rods, testosterone-fueled braggadocio – everything you could want in an entry from The Fast and the Furious library.

I’ve admitted before that these films are a guilty pleasure of mine. Those who read my review know that I felt that the last film, Fast & Furious, got the franchise back on some stable legs after the slight misfires that were 2 Fast 2 Furious and Tokyo Drift. I especially like that Fast Five is going to incorporate a lot of the characters and…er, “mythos” that has been established thus far, and having Johnson onboard as a pissed off bounty hunter speeding around in an armored Humvee… well… things could be (and have been) a lot worse.

Check back tomorrow for the Fast Five trailer and keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks for exclusive reports from our visit to the set of the movie.

  1. One word can sum up this movie:

    unnecessary

    • agreed

  2. I liked everyone I have seen which is the 1st, 2nd, and 4th. I’ll see it, sounds good at least.

  3. haha, look! it’s Dwayne “The Diesel” Johnson!

  4. Damn Vin looks PUNY next to The Rock

  5. Actually they look pretty close in size; I thought Dwayne was going to tower over Vin, but it’s not too big a difference. Either way I’m siked to see this movie now, love that this to big guys were willing to share the screen together.

    • I think u need to take another look, THa Roc’s arm is significantly bigger than Diesel’s torso

      • lol agreed

        • LOL

  6. I can’t wait for this. Same story line but diffirent place. But at least they are doing an all star cast this time.

  7. Who would win in a real fight? Hmmm….

    • Neither, Dolph Lundgren could whoop both their asses.

      • He’s no match for The Peoples Elbow let alone The Peoples Eyebrow man.
        Then again, Chuck Norris…’nuff said ;)

        • Chick Norris’s Stunt Double From walker u mean

        • The Rock would destory that jabroni. He’s the pie eating, scene stealing, people’s champ, the Rock! Man, I wish he was wrestling again.

          Honestly, the Rock looks like he could palm Vin’s head and dunk it in the basketball hoop

  8. Total guilty pleasure!

    These films are ridiculous fun.

  9. Same here man, I love this franchise simply because they’re movies made for men.

    But this all star cast seriously has me more excited than I was for the last movie. I hope at some point Vin and Dwayne have a bad ass fight, like two giants battling it out.

  10. Think Vin is wearing platforms in that shot.

  11. I want to call them “Diesel Johnson.” ;-)

  12. Fast & Furious (#4) was one of the best comedies of the year it was released. It was hilarious from start to finish. Hopefully this one will have even more laughs than all of the previous entries combined

  13. I was an extra in this movie!

  14. “You’ll have to total me first”…

    Please please let that NOT be a line in the movie. If it is then someone definitely needs a lesson in talking smack… But yeah still watching this movie regardless lol.

  15. The Roc would fold Diesel like a lawn chair

  16. I’ll be seeing this movie when it comes out, love the Fast and The Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious NEEDED Dom in it, Tokyo Drift was a pile of garbage, Fast and Furious the only part I didn’t like in that movie was when they killed of Michelle Rodriguez’s character, but other than that The whole serious has been a good way to kill a couple of hours.

  17. They jz want to make more money by casting The Rock, they should show more Japanese cars cuz they look more elegant than muscles…

  18. Am i the only that enjoyed 2 Fast 2 Furious?

  19. Ok Way to have Vin and Rock eye to eye, Rock is 6’5″ and Vin is 6’0″ 6’1″ on a good day. The Rock would Rock Bottom him thru the hood of his Daddys 69′ Challenger. I liked all of the movies i dont think Tokyo Drift was great but it was watchable, im glad they are bringing people from all the movies into this one, i guess since Han is in it that means its before Tokyo Drift in the timeline. this one will be sweet. Also I think the only place your gonna hear “Your gonna have to total me first” would be in a Gay Porno.

    • ROFL..

  20. And the winner for this years Outfest, Man on Man action film,,,

    Fast Five!

  21. I think an appropriate title for this movie would have been “The Pacifier VS. The Tooth Fairy”, that way they could appeal to the kids as well…

  22. Look all the man beef lol Yummy!!!

  23. mannn so cant wait this is gonna be awesome
