The action-drama Faster failed to rev up movie audiences last year (it made a little over $23 million domestically), but Dwayne Johnson should reach a wider audience with Fast Five, the latest installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. The 2009 picture Fast & Furious took in over $350 million worldwide, and the addition of Johnson could see those numbers substantially increase.
Johnson, who put on 30 pounds of muscle for the picture, is Hobbs, a federal agent tasked to take down Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker), who have teamed up to orchestrate a $100 million heist. Shooting locations on Fast Five included stops in Rio de Janeiro, Puerto Rico, and Atlanta. The 2009 Nissan 370Z, 1972 De Tomaso Pantera, 1993 Toyota Supra, and the 2007 Corvette GS Roadster are among the vehicles featured in the film.

Fast Five, which also stars Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Tyrese Gibson, opens Friday.
