“Fast & Furious Six” debuts new poster and Super Bowl TV spot

The newest “Fast and the Furious” movie, “Fast & Furious 6,” is going to feature more cars, more ladies and way more of The Rock. A special testosterone-filled TV spot and official poster were released for the film just in time for the Super Bowl, and they show exactly what we expect (and hope) from an installment in this franchise.

The minute-long TV spot debuted during football’s big day, and star Vin Diesel revealed the poster — which can be viewed in full below — on his Facebook page. Both tout the tagline, “All roads lead to this,” but our guess is those same roads will lead to future sequels as well.

Featured in the trailer are many recurring “Fast” faces including Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, and the big reveal, Michelle Rodriguez. Luke Evans and Gina Carano mark new additions to the cast, and “Fast & Furious 6″ looks to feature the biggest ensemble of the series.

Director Justin Lin reprises his role at the helm of the franchise after also directing “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,” “Fast & Furious” and “Fast Five.” The movie picks up after the events of “Fast Five,” and it looks to be just as fun as its predecessor. For a great take on why the “Fast and the Furious” movies are still relevant, check out Pulitzer Prize winner Wesley Morris’ 2011 article on the franchise, “Fast Forward.”

“Fast & Furious 6″ is due out on May 24. Here’s it’s official synopsis:

Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian’s (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete. Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (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.

Vin Diesel debuts new “Riddick” image

Vin Diesel’s excitement about the new “Riddick” movie is palpable. He’s been almost single-handedly promoting the film since its inception, and has had no shortage of set photos and stills from the movie to share with his fans.

He recently uploaded a new image to his official Facebook page that shows Riddick as we’re used to seeing him: Somber, alone and with an awesome vehicle. The “Riddick” lead sits in the rain looking forlorn and is likely trying to figure out how to face the next challenge ahead of him.

The still gives as much away about the movie as its recent poster does, but that’s cause to be excited. It’s clear that the movie is going to put Riddick front and center, if that wasn’t already obvious from the title and every other image that’s been released from the film. Riddick is a great anti-hero, but it will be interesting to see if he’s changed at all since “The Chronicles of Riddick” came out in 2004.

“Riddick” follows the title character after he’s been betrayed by his fellow humans and left for dead on a desolate planet. While he stays busy fighting for his survival against alien predators, bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy flock to the planet to try to kill him. But they’re actually all pawns in his quest for revenge, and he attacks them before returning home to Furya to save his planet from destruction. The film stars Vin Diesel, Karl Urban and Katee Sackoff, and was directed by David Twohy. It’s due in theaters on September 6.

“Riddick” debuts new international poster

“Riddick” has arrived. The movie has debuted a new international poster that teases the return of Vin Diesel’s sci-fi franchise, which doesn’t yet have a release date.

The film is expected to hit theaters at some point next year, and stars Karl Urban, Katee Sackoff, Jordi Molla and Matt Nable. Diesel has been tweeting and Facebooking inside looks at the movie frequently, but this is the first bit of promotional material we’ve seen.

It doesn’t give much away, but it does hearken back to the poster for the first Riddick movie, “Pitch Black.” Whether or not the third installment of the “Chronicles of Riddick” will be more like that film, its sequel or something else entirely it yet to be determined. All we know is we’re intrigued at Diesel’s earnest attempt to keep the franchise alive. If it works, we’ll be thrilled.
