‘Fast & Furious 6′ Trailer: 7 Moments That Take the Franchise to New Heights

Credit: Universal Pictures

The Fast & Furious franchise has always been about sleek sports cars that barrel down streets at lightning speed… but it hasn’t always paid much mind to physics. The first film was a small-scale, polished look at the underground racing scene. A few installments later, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, and a ragtag team of drivers were pulling off on-the-road heists and outrunning Brazilian police by whatever means necessary.

In Fast & Furious 6, director Justin Lin appears to have escalated his automotive series to near-fantastical levels. Judging from the new trailer, everyone and everything in the new movie can fly. Fast & Furious 6 is going toe-to-toe with Man of Steel — it makes sense Lin would have to take his franchise to the sky to contend with summer’s biggest blockbusters.

Watch the trailer and keep an eye out for these moments.

:56 – A police car does a double barrel roll over Owen Shaw’s (Luke Evans) souped up roadster. Didn’t Dick Dastardly’s car have that same catapult trick on Wacky Races?

1:00 – This looks like Gina Carano suffering from a close contact explosion. Also, some mad air.

1:53 – One of the movie’s biggest stunts is bringing down an airplane with some savvy car tricks. To make up for the lack of air, Lin finds a moment to send a tank sailing into the sky.

2:09 – The Rock’s Luke Hoobs must have learned from the warriors of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. We doubt a person could actually leap to this height for a punch advantage. Then again, this is The Rock.

2:14 – Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty returns for this FF6 after previously having been presumed to be dead. Having been thrown from her car off a freeway, she might once again be on death’s door.

2:20 – But not if Diesel’s Dominic has anything to say about it. What is the plan here? Is Walker driving a truck full of pillows on the road beneath them? We’ll have to wait until May 24 to find out the answers.
