Plot Summary: From the producer of the worldwide blockbuster hits "The Fast and the Furious" and its sequel, "2 Fast 2 Furious," comes the latest installment of the adrenaline-inducing series built on speed-"The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift". Set in the sexy and colorful underground world of Japanese drift racing, the newest and fastest customized rides go head-to-head on some of the most perilous courses in the world.

Sean Boswell (Black) is an outsider who attempts to define himself as a hot-headed, underdog street racer. Although racing provides a temporary escape from an unhappy home and the superficial world around him, it has also made Sean unpopular with the local authorities. To avoid jail time, Sean is sent to live with his gruff, estranged father, a career military-man stationed in Tokyo.

Now officially a gaijin (outsider), Sean feels even more shut out in a land of foreign customs and codes of honor. But it doesn't take long for him to find some action when a fellow American buddy, Twinkie (Bow Wow), introduces him to the underground world of drift racing. Sean's simple drag racing gets replaced by a rubber-burning, automotive art form-with an exhilarating balance of speeding and gliding through a heart-stopping course of hairpin turns and switchbacks.

On his first time out drifting, Sean unknowingly takes on D.K., the "Drift King," a local champ with ties to the Japanese crime machine Yakuza. Sean's loss comes at a high price tag when he's forced to work off the debt under the thumb of ex-pat, Han (Kang). Han soon welcomes Sean into this family of misfits and introduces him to the real principles of drifting. But when Sean falls for D.K.'s girlfriend, Neela (newcomer Kelley), an explosive series of events is set into motion, climaxing with an ultimate high stakes face off.

"The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" is directed by Justin Lin ("Better Luck Tomorrow," "Annapolis") and written by Chris Morgan ("Cellular"), Kario Salem ("The Score") and Alfredo Botello. The film is produced by Neal H. Moritz ("XXX," "S.W.A.T.") and executive produced by Clayton Townsend ("The Skeleton Key," "The 40-Year-Old Virgin").

It's Initial D...starring Bow Wow. :roll:

Is there really anyone over the age of 17 excited to see the third installment to a stale series thats not even starring any of the original cast???
This film should have been titled "3 FAST, 3 FURIOUS".

Saw the first one in the theator, saw the second one on DVD that I rented for free when i worked in a video store. I'll wait till this one is on FX at 3am.
Is the Fast going Fast because the Furious is Furious after him or is the Furious Furious after the Fast because the Fast was going too Fast in his suburb?

Either way, I think this whole mess is about a hit and run. I hope the Furious catch the Fast and teach him a lesson. But he probably won't because the Fast is too fast.

This looked really lame in the preview. I'm guessing Bow Wow is going to "curse" or use ebonics in this movie to "street it up". These people should be shot.

Um, I believe you made it a prime 17.

This thread is now legal.

Back on topic, and that topic is a pointless movie.
