fast five teaser poster

IGN just premiered the brand new poster for Fast Five. It's a teaser poster, so it gives you just a simple taste of what the big budget blockbuster is promising. Stars and fast cars -- isn't that all you really need to know? I'm digging it. Click below to see the full version:

They've also posted a brief interview with director Justin Lin, who talks about what you can expect, both familiar and new, from the fifth installment of the auto action franchise -- including the big addition of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to the cast: Fast Five Poster Premiere.
But Brian doesn't exactly make a clean getaway. That's where Johnson comes in. He plays a federal agent named Hobbs, who follows the fugitives down to Brazil and will stop at nothing to bring them back to justice in the U.S. Lin says that having The Rock on board elevated the project to epic status for him, as both a director and a fan.

"When I'd heard that he was interested in potentially joining, I jumped at it," Lin says. "I'm a huge fan of Dwayne and I've always felt like for me as a movie fan, if you want to equate it to the '80s, it's almost seeing Schwarzenegger and Stallone together in their prime in a film. I've always wanted to see something like that and I feel like these are two big action stars that I've always wanted to see on screen together. And I think The Rock, or Dwayne, he definitely has the presence to become the real antagonist to our characters."
Can you believe it's been a whole decade since the start of the Fast and the Furious series? I hated that first movie. Never bothered to see the second one. But now none other than Justin Lin is pretty much responsible for making this movie brand what is -- one of Universal's biggest, most profitable franchises.
