Click above to watch video after the jump

The Fast and Furious franchise started off with a monumental bang, but quickly became a bit of a drag. OK, the original Fast and Furious was pretty darn good, but the other two actually removed brain cells from all who watched them. Did the script go bad, or was it just a lack of Shaq Vin Diesel? Universal Studios is hoping for the latter, as Mr. Clean is back for the fourth installment of the tuner car series.

We've shown you a couple trailers so far, and after the jump are a few teaser minutes of the film that haven't been seen yet. Brian O'Connor's GT-R is fast and Dom Toretto's Chevelle SS is furious enough to magically flip some dude's ride over a bridge. We're pretty sure we won't be quoting Vin and Paul lines from Furious 4 after we see the movie, but some pretty sweet rides and the return of the Diesel should be enough to get us back into the theater.

      If it features a Chevelle, I'm there.

      That new trailer actually looked pretty decent. I like Justin Lin's directing style when it comes to the car scenes. The ones in this trailer are kind of reminiscent of the Tokyo Drift. Hopefully, this won't be let down by terrible acting and a completely balls storyline like 2Fast 2Furious and Tokyo Drift.

      why do all the drag races featured, include smashing the hell outta their cars in the race?

      if im racing someone, the last thing im gonna do is try to slam my noZZed out civic, and risk bending my rear trunk spoiler! that would screw up my aerodynamics lol

        • 5 Years Ago
        I don't get the irony; a crash would ruin aerodynamics, even if they didn't serve a function in the first place. Mangled body panels=drag that wasn't there before. Here's another equation for you B16+a 50 shot of nitrous in a a 2500lb Civic> V6 mustang mulleted out and a 4 speed automatic coming in at 2 tons.

      Tokyo Drift was actually an entertaining movie (first two were terrible), because though CG was used, a lot of the stunts were done for real. For example, the Z drifting on the parking ramp was actually done by Rhys Millen, and he did it in one try. Plus they had cameos from the likes of Dori-Dori (Keiichi Tsuchiya) which catered to more dedicated JDM enthusiasts.

      This next one is also directed by Justin Lin, but who knows how it'll turn out. Looks goofy so far, and it already has a lot of cheesy cliches--like the "omgz I'ma go faster by downshifting!" gimmick, and the ricer one-hand-on-top-of-the-steering-wheel pose. Yeesh. Plus turning an AWD R34 GT-R into a RWD pretty much defeats the purpose of the GT-R...

      Tokyo Drift did use CGI a few times, the most obvious was the final touge race when the camera goes off the cliff and picks them up at the base of the large curve.

      It's just a much cooler Dukes of Hazzard.

      the first one was terrible and you will find most people agree. 2nd one was the worst. Tokyo drift was only any good because they didnt use any CGI, all real stunts.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Pretty sure there was some fairly obvious CGI at least a couple times. One that I can think of off the top of my head was when they were in the girl's RX8 and drifting around a mountain with a bunch of cars at night. Either they figured out how to turn off Earth physics for the purpose of filming movies, or those cars were CG. I also remember one particular drift that used some heavy CG until the car came close to the camera, then it abruptly shifted to reality.

        Regardless, I don't think CGI can single-handedly make or break a movie unless it's, well, a CGI movie. A bad movie is going to be a bad movie even if you strip out all the CG scenes.
        • 5 Years Ago
        There was plenty of CGI it Tokyo Drift-o, yo.

      I have yet to see a trailer for this movie that makes me think it might be even a little bit good. It looks just awful, it's the same feeling I got when seeing previews for 2F2F. I have a sneaking suspicion that 4 Fast 4 Furious is going to be another boring crime movie with slightly more cars than normal crime movies. Even these driving scenes look sub-par compared to 3 Fast 3 Furious or even 1 Fast 1 Furious, which at least had an epic cheese factor to its credit. I think I'll be waiting to catch this one on Netflix.

      Vin Diesel and improvement are mutually exclusive.
