It’s not coming out until next summer, but we’re FINALLY getting a look at the new Fast & Furious trailer.
You know what, fair enough. I was going to make a joke about how they never gave us the updated price point on a gasoline train after you sideswipe the cab and lead tanker over a cliff in a raging fireball, and I was going to make a joke about how we can’t seriously still think of Vin Diesel as a threatening hoodie-wearing hooligan now that he’s 41 years old and was in Find Me Guilty. But I’m not going to make any of those jokes because I think this movie is going to do exactly what it set out to do. Would you criticize the sun for shining in an unimaginative way? Would you ask the stars not to be such a cash-grabbing rehash of a worn out idea? Would you tell the ocean not to open with one of the least thrilling stunt sequences you’ve ever seen, and that’s coming from someone who loves stunt sequences? It is what it is.
I do think that they should change the tag-line to “Summer 2009 Can’t Come Fast And Furious Enough,” and give me a million dollars thanks.
