Fast Five, Feel the Speed. Feel the Rush.Category: Entertainment
Finally, here’s a film worthy of breaking the box office slump.
Following its release on April 29, 2011, Fast Five broke box office records to become the highest grossing opening weekend in an April and the second highest opening weekend outside of the Summer season, earning $168 million.
Though it is the fifth entry in the series, the events of the film take place between the events of Fast & Furious (2009) and The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006).
Fast Five stars stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster and Dwayne Johnson.
Former cop Brian O’Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on their tail. Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey… before someone else runs them down first.
Fast Five is directed by Justin Lin and produced by Neal H. Moritz for a budget of $125 million.
