Before, when we said we have a premiere night of a Hollywood film here in Manila, a lot of people raises eyebrows for we are giving them a misleading statement. True enough, how can a premiere night be a premiere night without at least one of the cast. Maybe it is just a dream to expect Hollywood stars grace our local "advance screenings" for they are probably super busy to accommodate Manila. But sometimes dreams are meant to come true as the cast of Fast and Furious 6 is coming in country for the grand Premiere Night for the Philippine audience in SM Mall of Asia on May 15.
It has been already a rumor last year that the cast is coming here but since most of us are in doubt, we don't really expect too much so that we will not be disappointed. But here we are confirming the attendance of cast for the Manila red carpet premiere. Joining us are Vin Diesel (Dom Toretto) and Michelle Rodriguez (Letty Ortiz). Joining the two Fast and Furious veterans are Gina Carrano (Haywire) and Luke Evans (The Immortals). Also on the entourage are Fast and Furious 6 Producer Neal Moritz and Director Justin Lin.
Too bad we will not see Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson and Sung Kang for they will be joining other red carpet premiere across the world. Also I'm still wishing that Jason Statham will join this Manila Premiere. Definitely crossing my fingers.
Opening in May 24, Fast and Furious 6 will be locally distributed by Solar Entertainment through United International Pictures Philippines.
Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian's (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin's empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.
Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
