Click above to see a gallery of stills from The Fast and The Furious 4

Amazing what a huge opening weekend at the box office can do. After debuting with a record-breaking $72.5 million haul in its first few days, the fourth installment, Fast & Furious tapered off a bit last week at $28 million, but that hasn't slowed the franchise one little bit.

In an interview on Friday with Los Angeles radio station 104.3MYfm, star Paul Walker said that a fifth installment is practically a sure thing now: "This was supposed to be it – but without question, Vin and I will be coming back, we're making the fifth one and we're going to Brazil." We hate to say we told you so, but... well, we did.

Based on the results of our previous poll, we're guessing that most of you will be up for another go assuming the trailers and buzz show it to be at least as good as the current film. But what do you think? Is a fifth installment with some Brazilian flair worth doing? Will you see it if they make it? Take our poll after the jump and let us know.

      I like the current film, it's not a serious movie by no means, it is what it is a time waster with cars and egos and some female eye candy.. Wonder what the next installment is going to be called? Mo' Faster and Ferocious "The Brazilian Link"
      • 5 Years Ago
      Looks like bio-diesel will take a huge role in this next film.
      • 5 Years Ago

      the translation of the last scream is sensational !!!

      GO , this sh*t never ends ....

      PLEASE...NO MORE F&F MOVIES!!!

      I was the biggest fan of the first movie (Because it contained a level of lowkey authenticity to the culture and reality), but all the rest have been progressively worse, but not in order (if that makes any sense).

      2Fast, 2Furious & Tokyo dirft where WAY too Hollywood. Not authentic to the entire underground street racing genre.

      I honestly cannot take the onslaught of the "B-Level & below" acting, and all the Hollywood style stunts. That's not an accurate representation of why the culture exist in reality (Fast & Furious Producers --> please get your hands on a copy of Super Street Magazine, you'll find good stuff there). It exist because there are people who are talented, and can build some very fast, very well-handled machines. Not because I have the loudest sounds system, most colorful paint job, and 50 bad-@ss girls hanging around (The girls are very nice eye candy though!)

      It sickens me that my $18 added to that phenominal box office weekend for F&F, but that movie was complete garbage. Either do it right or please stop making these movies.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Accurate or not, looks to me like they ARE doing it right. I mean, they got you to spend $18, didn't they?

        Now here's someone that's taking the franchise WAY too seriously.
        • 5 Years Ago
        @ Aprime

        All I'm saying is, if you're gonna do some'n, do it right or don't do it at all. That's the one thing the franchise continues to get wrong.

        As far as the acting, I'm not looking for "Ocsar-level" work here. I'm just sick of the corny one-liners from Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. Just make the movies about the cars, do it right, and that's it. Not so much emphasis on all storyline BS that's no one cares about anyway. If one were to watch pornography, I'm sure they're not looking for a great plot, it's always get to the good stuff. Same here, this is a car movie, I could care less about the background story drama they keep tryna create, just show me the cars, and moreover, do it right.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Guess I'm alone in my thinking the fourth was actually a helluva lot better than I thought it would be. The ironic part is, it was the same role for Diesel that he played in "A Man Apart", but he did a much better job in "F&F" than I think he did in "A Man Apart". I've seen the first three F&F movies (yes, I do own them among my 600+ DVD collection). I think having the backstory with all of the previous characters helped involve you more emotionally than when his wife died after 10 minutes of screentime.

      It was also nice to seen Han in all his calm, wise coolness and my girl, being Puerto Rican and into Reggaeton, thought it was fun to see Tego and Don Omar provide a little comic relief (Vin's spanish was HORRIBLE though). I don't expect F&F to ever win an Oscar, but nonetheless, I was pleasantly surprised I didn't feel I wasted my $7.

      People's number one bitch about the F&F series has always been "the story sucks". If you've seen the movies, you've likely seen them for the cars, not the story. They finally manage to get a decent, involving storyline together, and people bitch "it's not supposed to be about the story." Then people bitch, "I don't see those movies because they're for stupid people and I'm not stupid." I have an education in material science and engineering and a background in both electrical and mechanical engineering as well as a previous history in computer science. I watch movies to be entertained. Everything from "On the Waterfront" and "Casablanca" to "Memento" and "Gladiator" to "Half-Baked" and "Scary Movie". Some of you need to grow up. Nobody says you HAVE to like mindless entertainment, but it's unnecessary to think you're better than somebody else because you choose not to watch them. Your opinion is valid like everybody else's but respect other people's choice to do the opposite of what you do.

      Oh...and I'll go see a 5th one if it looks decent.

      Brazil has hot girls....

      i vote for option 4 - Its a renter...not worth my $10 bucks and having to listen to dumb little kids laugh at every corny joke

      • 5 Years Ago
      why Brazil, I wonder...!??
      .
      Brazil has nothing interesting to show when it comes to cars....
        • 5 Years Ago
        There are beautiful women everywhere in the world for sure, but Brazil has probably the highest concentration of them anywhere. Take a stroll along Ipanema or Copacabana beach and you'll get whiplash just trying to keep up with them.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Meh, You can find pretty girls just about everywhere, Europe and again Japan or East Cost would be more better, and I can't think of a good story to fit Brazil.

        I've seen a silicone processing plant, does that count?

        @the_MVP_X

        Since when do F&F movies have good stories?
        • 5 Years Ago
        combine movies and make it a Canonball Run from daytona beach to South Padre Island over Spring Break.

        Paul Walker's long lost little brother is in over his head and owes 5 10-second cars to some druglord's son vacationing at S. Padre Island.

        and some local cracker dimwit sherriff in AL is chasing them the second 1/2 of the journey
        • 5 Years Ago
        Some of you guys are so gay.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yeah, but this it's not a decision factor, after all it's a movie about cars, with the girls as accessories.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I have to say that Brazilian girls are ...on another level. You don't find those at your local supermarket.
        Derek
        • 5 Years Ago
        Have you not seen the girls in Brazil?
      • 5 Years Ago
      The fourth sucked (it's not meant to be about drama/the story, it's meant to be retarded), I'm not wasting any money on the fifth.
      • 5 Years Ago

      This is gonna get as repetitive as Harry potter/Lord of the rings/ Ghostbusters.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Ok Urine so you dont like the movies. I can dig that but how did the movies do "irreparable damage" to the originals?

        Can one no longer read the original works?
        Have the original works been edited to match the films?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Sea, Urine,

        "LOTR is a classical book that suffered irreparable damage from the movies"

        You really are a simple person.

        How did the original work suffer irreparable damage from the making of 3 amazing, critically, and popularly acclaimed films?

        The films sufficiently played homage to the art of the original work in a new medium.

        Whatever you'd like.
        • 5 Years Ago
        How do you compare LOTR and all that other BS you listed. LOTR is a classical book that suffered irreparable damage from the movies, Fast and Furious is a BS as is Ghostbusters.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I'm not talking about how bad or good the movies are. I'm just talking about how there is sequel after sequel. geez. That's why I used the word 'repetitive'.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Epyx, to begin with movie has no Old Tom Bombadil and his song, they have cut out certain characters and parts alltogerher, thereby butchering a work of art.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Ghostbusters is a classic, and a good movie. It also had only 1 sequel, 1 ongoing comic, 2 cartoons, and about 5 different games.

        Compared to LotR, which has had at least twice as many games in the current generation, as well as comic book adaptions and a few attempts at animated versions in the past.

        And there was no way in hell they could have included everything in LotR. Bombadil alone would have been a couple hours, and all 3 movies were pushing it as far as times go.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Oscar wins do no equate to greatness.

        That said, the LOTR movies did a decent job of depicting the books. Sure, they didn't show 100% and took out elements of the books (and made Gimli a bumbling idiot) but at the end of the day, they did a good job.

      I never even paid to see the fourth one...just downloaded a crappy quality CAM, and after seeing it, I'm glad I didn't pay $10 for the theatres....
