    Sort of a variation on Five Fast motherfuckers which is what some matchcutters felt the fifth movie should have been called.

    Quote Quoting Fat Diesel
    "With the success of this last one, and the inclusion of so many characters, and the broadening of scope, when we were sitting down to figure out what would fit into the real estate of number six, we didn’t have enough space..."

    "We have to pay off this story, we have to service all of these character relationships, and when we started mapping all that out it just went beyond 110 pages,” Diesel explained. “The studio said, ‘You can’t fit all that story in one damn movie!’"

    I wonder if someone told Vin that nobody enjoyed Fast Five because of the character relationships.

    The characters, their ridiculousness, and the continuity is why I watch those movies.

    Has there ever been a franchise to move this fast to 6 movies that wasn't horror?
    The Thin Man series with William Powell and Myrna Loy? IIRC, they pumped out six of them in less than a dozen years.

    Jim Varney made 8 of the 'Ernest' movies from 1987-1998 (9 if you count the made-for-TV one).

    "We eventually managed to find them near Biskupin, where demonstrations of prehistoric farming are organized. These oxen couldn't be transported to anywhere else, so we had to built the entire studio around them. A scene that lasted twenty-something seconds took us a year and a half to prepare."

    There were 48 "Bowery Boys" movies in between 1946 and 1958.

    Wikipedia says 4 dozen, but that was across a few decades and swapping out the actor multiple times, a la James Bond.

    So now Joe Taslim from The Raid has joined the cast. Another intriguing addition. I can't believe I'm actually looking forward to a Fast & Furious film.

    Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in Fast & Furious 6. Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by badass series 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.
    Michelle Rodriguez: the actor franchises cannot kill!
    Quote Quoting Donald Glover
    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Somehow, of all the movie-related Superbowl ads, this became the only one to not have any trailers or anything already out. So it's obviously the most anticipated one now. America has spoken.

    By the way, the official title is apparently Fast & Furious 6. I really hope they title a future one Faster & Furiouser.

    That would be swell, but this, or another fast and furious thread, has already seen the suggestion "Six fast Motherfuckers!!" So you can imagine that "Faster & Furiouser" is downright generic by comparison even if I may have embellished with the exclamation marks. :P
