The IMAX Corporation and Universal Pictures today announced that Fast & Furious 6 will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX format and released in select IMAX theatres internationally starting May 22.
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars alongside Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Elsa Pataky as well as newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano.
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.
“Director Justin Lin and stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson have already proven to be a turbo-charged combination for IMAX,” said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Entertainment. “We can’t wait to provide our fans with the most immersive way to experience the excitement of the next chapter of this high octane movie franchise this summer.”
Building on the worldwide blockbuster success of Fast Five and taking the action, stunts and narrative to even greater heights, Fast & Furious 6 sees director Justin Lin back behind the camera for the fourth time. He is supported by longtime producers Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel, who welcome producer Clayton Townsend back to the series.
