Tuesday’s Top Trailer: Fast and Furious 6

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

Fast and Furious 6 – Opening May 24, 2013

If there’s one film series for which I am wholly enthusiastic that does not match up with the rest of my cinematic tastes, it’s this one. The main reason for my excitement for this sixth installment is that the fifth was the best in the series so far, a rare feat for a franchise a decade old. This trailer only offers up more reason to get pumped for the only summer blockbuster which I write about that I’ll be sure to actually see. Not only is director Justin Lin, who helmed the previous installments, but so is the entire cast, including Dwayne Johnson, and, as previewed in the last scene of “Fast Five,” Michelle Rodriguez as Letty, who appeared to have died at the beginning of “Fast and Furious,” the fourth entry. Having Johnson’s Agent Hobbs enlist the help of Vin Diesel’s Dom and his crew to stop an international criminal organization committing what Ludacris’ Tej describes as “vehicular warfare” is the perfect setup to get the whole gang back together. Enhancing the already thrilling action sequences from “Fast Five” are the fact that the criminals have a tank and the awe-inspiring scene from this trailer in which the crew manages to hijack a plane. I’m sure that’s just the tip of the iceberg, and you can count on me to get in line for this one as soon as it comes out at the end of May. I couldn’t be more stoked.
