Fast & Furious 6: Dec. 10

photo for Fast & Furious 6 Since Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian’s (Pauk Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, the “Fast” gang has scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and the angst of living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete. Meanwhile, federal agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Luke Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
