I’ve hosted many shows but never the world premiere of a blockbuster film from a very successful franchise like that of The Fast and The Furious! As I write this sitting on my flight to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the show of the premiere will take place, and I can barely contain my excitement! We’ll be coming to you LIVE from the waterfront Cinepolis in Rio where the cast will arrive in cars from the film so even the red carpet will be fast and furious : )
The 5th installment in the franchise, Fast Five, is set in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where the original cast comes together for one last, action packed heist that is sure to keep your booty on the edge of the seat at the movie theater. Fast Five is the best action flick I’ve seen in a long time. It’s entertaining every step of the way weather it’s with tons of action or the drama and passion that the main characters bring to the film. It’s an action film with love, friendship and freedom being the driving forces which I loved!
One of my favorite scenes is the epic fight scene between Dom (Vin Diesel) and Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and the awesome twist/shocker at the very end of the film which of course I’m not giving away.
After watching it, the world seemed to be going 5MPH and I left the screening wanting to race cars LOL! Fast Five hasn’t officially come out yet and already I can’t wait for #6!
Be sure to catch Tyrese Gibson and I co-hosting the LIVE red carpet show for the world premiere of Fast Five TONIGHT at 5pm PST/8pm EST. The show will be streaming LIVE on the following website:
Here’s the Fast Five trailer starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Dwayne Johnson (The Rock), Gal Gadot (Miss Isreal Universe ’04 for all you pageant fans), Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges (Ludacris), Tego Calderon, Don Omar, Sung Kang, Elsa Petaki, Matt Schulze and Joaquim de Almeida!
If you’re already a “Fast” fan, you're in for the best film in the franchise yet and if you’re not a fan…well, you will be. Fast Five is THAT good so, do yourself a favor and go see it on the big screen when it premieres on April 29th.
I also decided to stay in Rio a few extra days to explore so check back next week to see photos of my trip!
Lots of love,
