Fast Furious Six Official Images First Fast 6 Set Images Feature Cars, Guns, Diesel & The Rock

With more than half a dozen stars (admittedly, some more past their prime than others) joining forces for the upcoming Fast and Furious 6, the series that started in response to the popularity of import car culture looks poised to match even Harry Potter‘s staying power.

In case fans were worried that the sixth installment would be the one that strayed a bit too far from the formula, new photos from two of the leading men on set show that the film will still be focused on what made it popular to begin with: guns, cars, and fighting.

After successfully pulling off the shift from street racing to heist film with last year’s Fast Five, director Justin Lin is taking things even farther into the realm of caper films, putting the assembled team of street racers’ thieving skills to use across Europe. The exact plot of the film – tentatively referred to as Fast Six - or that of its sequel have yet to be explained in-depth. But a set of official images (courtesy of mainstay Vin Diesel) and a candid snapshot from newer star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson do provide a few hints for the analytical among us.

The first photo comes courtesy of Johnson’s Twitter account, after snapping a set photo with the caption: “On set. FAST 6. Take 1: Rock throws man into table so hard entire ceiling crashes down. #MyBad.”

Unfortunately, the ‘thrown man’ in question isn’t pictured, so fans will need to wait until the film is released to see how such a poorly-constructed ceiling is explained in-fiction.

Not to be outdone, Vin Diesel has released two higher-quality publicity photos via his Facebook page, captioned “Proud of Our team. P.s. You really see the difference in the finished product when everyone, from crew to cast is striving to make magic. Blessed.” The images not only show just how positive Diesel is about the current production, but also categorize one of the photos as “from the trailer,” implying that early footage may be on its way before long. Take a look:

The photos confirm that Dominic Torreto (Diesel) is sticking with the white t-shirt and jeans look, so it appears some things will never change. The photos may confirm little that wasn’t already assumed – cars shall be driven, guns shall be held threateningly – but a few of the finer points are a bit more intriguing. For starters, the official photo shows Toretto, Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and Agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) collected in a single room, without guns pointed at one another’s heads.

The closing moments of Fast Five may have shown that Hobbs’ character wasn’t as bound by jurisdiction or morality as most federal agents, but he still wasn’t about to let O’Conner or Torreto off the hook. If they are capable of carrying on a conversation at all, it would seem that the stakes have been raised for both the ever-growing Torreto family and those hunting them. And if the set The Rock destroys with a single man-throw is, as it appears to be, an interrogation room, then who knows how far his character is willing to go.

The Rock’s character obviously needed some more development to justify his newfound role in the series, since it was partly his enthusiasm for Fast Five that convinced director Justin Lin the franchise still had legs. The still-living Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) is likely behind whatever plot twists writer Chris Morgan has come up with, as her character is one of the few that could pull the gang of racers-turned-master-criminals from their happy retirement. Conflict and motivation will be in great supply for Fast Six, with MMA fighter Gina Carano (Haywire) signed on as Hobbs’ new partner, and the likes of Luke Evans (The Hobbit, Immortals) and Joe Taslim (The Raid: Redemption) acting as new villains.

Diesel has commented in the past that the personal relationships between the characters fans have come to love will be a priority for the next two films, so hopefully the first trailer will give some insight into which grudges – or presumed lost loves – will be dealt with first. Not to mention, we still need an official reveal of the title for what we can only now refer to as Fast Six.

Fast Six (the unofficial title) opens in U.S. theaters on May 24th, 2013.

  1. i hope this is better then the last b/c the last one was all over the place in terms of genre. i’m all fine with action, but simply adding it to draw in more viewers ruins what the franchise has been about all this time (up until 4 >) – FAST CARS AND HOT GIRLS, we barely got either in 4 and 5 so here’s hoping they bring the 2 main attractions back.

    • I thought the last on was the best in the series… it was brilliant. Cant wait for this and im glad the rock is back and maybe a decent fist fight with diesel should happen

      • agreed the fifth was the best in the series, though i found that i was missing the car races and chases. there was basically only one race and one chase in the fifth so i hope the 6th has a little more. other then that though the fifth was extremely awesome!

        • yeah but i think its evolved from that. it cant really just be about the races anymore because it was the 5th one, it would just get too repetitive and less maybe is more if you understand what i mean. Cant wait for 6th too.

    • This is going to be coolz ANYBODY WANT FREE TICKETS

      • I want free tickets

  2. Tokyo Drift killed it for me. I never got around to seeing #4 until my brother convinced me I should see #5. Personally, #3 should never be considered part of the fast and furious series. 6 should be super cool. The Rock and Vin Diesel fighting is cool, but the two working together. What an unstoppable juggernaut that is. They should also have a part in Expendables 3. They’ve earned it.

    • I always like to think that Tokyo Drift is a stand alone movie and of different universe than the rest of the series. I refuse to accept Han died in Tokyo Drift and the rest of the movies after are prequel to it as a fact.

  3. I’m excited that Gina Carano will be in the movie :)

  4. Fast Five was the best one. And it’s good to see Diesel getting somewhat back in shape l.

  5. Hopefully this time they don’t dub over Gina Carano’s voice

  6. I can’y help it. I love these films.

    Given Eva Mendes little cameo at the end of the last one, I assume she’ll be coming back at some point.

  7. Come on Guys we’ll know the Hollywood break down.

    1 – the Fast & the Furious
    2 – 2 Fast 2 Furious
    3 – TORQUE
    4 – BIKER BOYS
    5 – the Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift
    6 – Fast & Furious
    7 – Fast Five
    8 – ‘Fast 6′ ——————- (which I will see) .

    Torque and Biker Boys is part of the Motorcycle story with all of the Fast & Furious trilogy and I have them all.

    If you want to ADD –

    Gone in 60 seconds?
    the Transporter?
    the Italian job?

    Is up to you, But I do love them all.

  8. P.S.

    TORQUE is FROM the Producer of “the Fast & the Furious” and “XXX”

    But not BIKER BOYS.

  9. I think the 5th installment of the series was the best by far. I also like the idea that they are moving towards a heist crime genre type of movie instead of just fast cars and women because that just got old.

  10. They should call it furious 6 because it makes since fast five furious six DO IT! lol

    • True that!!

      Furious 6….It is.

      Forget — “Fast Six”??

  11. This better be good

  12. i just hope that they do a little more racing in this one and a little less conversations

  13. nah it should be called “Fast and Furious:Redemption” and i also wanna comment on the cars.since they’re moving up to europe,dom and brians main car brands(DODGE AND NISSAN)should move up to there luxury versions(CHRYSLER AND INFINITI).

    Dodge Charger-Chrysler Crossfire(Roadster)
    Nissan Skyline-Infiniti G37 ipl
