Dwayne Johnson reveals the first sequel to Fast Five will begin shooting in May. However, it won't be filmed back to back with the seventh installment of the high-octane franchise.
As we prepare to say goodbye to 2011 for good, let's take one last look back and see if there's anything we can learn from the movies that made it big this year - and the ones that really, really didn't. What lessons can we learn from 2011's box office?
Star Vin Diesel explains that the story of the sixth installment of the Fast and Furious action franchise is so big that a seventh movie is being written.
The Kenneth Branagh-directed film, which has already grossed more than $108 million internationally, is on track to open north of $60 million this weekend in the United States. That's considerably less than Marvel's 2010 tentpole Iron Man 2.
Universal plans to jump genres for the sequel to Fast Five and any future follow-ups, re-creating the series within the heist genre.
The new trailer for Fast Five gives the fans what they want: fast cars, big explosions, loud noises and top-shelf one-liners.
