Universal has sent over 10 clips from director Justin Lin’s Fast Five which stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar.  The latest chapter in the franchise is set in Rio de Janeiro and features a federal agent (Johnson) hot on the trail of a jail-skipping Dom Toretto (Diesel).

Even though I know exactly how this film is going to play out, I’ll admit the trailers and clips have definitely sold me.  What can I say, I like my popcorn movies.  Also, with an April 29 release date, the film is one of the first big summer movies and it’s going to make a ton of money.  After all, who doesn’t want to see Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson fight?  As producer Neal Moritz told me:

“They beat the shit out of each other, we shot for probably four days of them literally beating the shit out of each other. The audience is gonna be like ‘wow’.”

I can’t wait.  Hit the jump to watch the clips.

Finally, for those wondering about the future of the Fast and the Furious franchise, Moritz also told me:

“In Vin and my mind we already know what the sixth movie is, we’ve already been talking about it.  Vin and I have had numerous conversations about what that might be. And we’re starting to get serious about it right now. We just finished the movie like 4 or 5 weeks ago and we just needed a break, and now we’re gonna start focusing on that.”

Keep in mind he told me this info a few months ago, but it’s pretty clear the fifth installment is not the end.  Especially if the movie makes a ton of money.

Here’s the official synopsis followed by the clips.  Here’s everything we’ve posted on Fast Five.

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five. In this installment, former cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Matt Schulze, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race. Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) 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 off 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 (Johnson) 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.
