The fifth installment of the high-octane, high-testosterone series comes to theaters April 29th.

In the film, Dwayne Johnson plays Hobbs, a cop on the trail of street racers Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson and the familiar crew of the Furious franchise.

"One of the things I've always loved about the franchise - the reason I think it's been so successful over the years - is that they never stop trying to up the action," Dwayne Johnson says.

Director Justin Lin says:

"If you're going to do a Fast and Furious movie, you've got to go bigger each time," says Lin. "People thought it would be impossible to get Dwayne. But he didn't show up looking to cash a paycheck.

"That's pretty amazing, for a star like him to join the fifth part of a franchise. That says a lot about him and the fans."

"I think what keeps it going is that it's not really about cars," Lin says. "I have to be honest: I'm not a big car guy. At the core, Fast and Furious is about family and how to create them."

"The vibe was electric when Dwayne walked on set. The whole crew was buzzing with him, Vin, and all these other huge action stars on one set. It was like having (Sylvester) Stallone and (Bruce) Willis in the same movie."

Fast Five was released April 29th, 2011.
