Where did you watch this movie?

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.

Trivia:
The use of a tank in the action set-piece came out of a joke where Lin asked what could top the vault sequence in Fast 5. Eventually, they got access to a tank and tested it by running it over cars to see what would happen.

Lin credits an executive at Universal named Jay (possibly Polidoro) for the idea of making Riley the mole in Hobbs’ team. The obvious nature of this plot twist is clear evidence of why Jay is an executive rather than a writer.

Like their introduction in the film, Han and Giselle’s motorcycle attack during the tank sequence was shot off the schedule to save money.

The tank sequence was originally designed to take place in London, with the production building Piccadilly Circus on a sound stage. However, they found a highway that wasn’t opened yet that they could have total access to. They chose the open highway because it allowed them to put more money on the screen rather than spend too much money duplicating the buildings of London in the background with CGI.

The production could only close down Piccadilly Circus for seven minutes at a time to shoot those scenes.

The young child looking out of the window of the double-decker bus as Letty and Dom speed by is Lin’s son.

The inclusion of Rita Ora at the start of the street racing sequence was done as an afterthought because Vin Diesel met her and thought she embodied London. Her shots were completed after production of the scene had wrapped.

The hand-to-hand fight between Letty and Riley took three days to shoot. The one with Roman and Han fighting Jah (Joe Taslim) took only one day to shoot, which is why it consists of less complex, wider shots.

When Giselle shoots one of Shaw’s men on his motorcycle while Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Riley (Gina Carano) run into the London Underground was meant to be a far more elaborate motorcycle chase. However, Lin had to scrap the scene and re-design it in five minutes to keep production on time.

The snobby man at the auction who says that Tej (Ludacris) is “clearly not a baller” was meant to originally say “clearly not a rapper.” Everyone thought it was hilarious, except for Ludacris, which is why the line was changed.

The flip-car chase takes place in London, but it was impossible to shut down the streets there to shoot the scene. Glasgow was used to double for London on the street portion of the chase, and the tunnel sequence was shot in Liverpool to take advantage of the arcs and turns underground.

Each film in this trilogy featured a custom-built vehicle. Fast 5 had the truck in the train sequence; Fast & Furious had Han’s orange truck; and Shaw’s flip-car was built from the ground-up for this film. Originally, it was larger, with Lin comparing to a Mercedes SUV. In the end, they designed small and minimal, and it would actually flip vehicles better than special effects ramps.

During prep, the production spent two weeks shooting photos of the characters in different situation to be used in surveillance photos throughout the film.

Tyrese Gibson had “It’s Roman Bitches!” printed on his chairs during the previous films, and Lin continually teased him for leaving out an essential comma. This led to Lin putting the quote on the tail of Roman’s private plane in the beginning of the film.

Lin was originally told they did not have the budget or time to shoot all the character intros in the beginning of the film. However, he made it work in the schedule, resorting to shooting the Hong Kong intro with Giselle (Gal Gadot) and Han (Sung Kang) on a two-hour break in a separate sound stage at the end of production.

The actor playing Shaw’s man that Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) beats up in the interrogation room is a magician by trade.

Originally, the film was conceived as two separate films to be shot simultaneously. They would have been named The Fast, which would end with the tank sequence, and The Furious, which would have ended with the airplane sequence.

The original title of the film was Furious 6, resulting from naming the previous two films Fast & Furious and Fast 5. However, Universal’s marketing department stepped in and demanded it be given a title that included both words.

The post-credits sequence is Han's death from "Tokyo Drift", while using new footage to introduce Ian Shaw.

An early leaked version of the Superbowl TV spot showed the title "Furious 6" as the title of the film. The later released teaser poster and TV spot showed the final title of the film.

Michelle Rodriguez (Letty) did not have a driver's license before she began filming for the first part in the series.

Dennis McCarthy, the man behind building the vehicles used in the fast car franchise says that they used "a whole fleet of BMW M5s" in order to complete one sequence. McCarthy also said "We pretty much destroyed every single one later on in other scenes."

The Dodge Daytona that Vin Diesel is driving was made custom. The actual car used in production was rebuilt by McCarthy and his team from the old $5,000 piece of junk that they first acquired.

The second Fast & Furious film to end on a cliff-hanger.

Several hero cars for the new film are being procured from California-based Lucra Cars.

Rihanna was rumored for a role.

Jason Statham and David Tennant were at different points considered to play the film's antagonist before Luke Evans signed on.
