"While '6' usually translates to franchise fatigue, this series doesn't play by the rules, and Universal has done a great job beefing up each installment," Exhibitor Relations senior box-office analyst Jeff Bock said of Fast 6 to MTV News. "In 'Fast Five,' they added Dwayne Johnson and in '6' they brought Michelle Rodriguez's character back from the dead. Plus, instead of a car-racing series, 'Fast & Furious' has morphed into a heist-film franchise, extending its audience and lengthening its play-ability."
- Fast 6 is also garnering good reviews. The movie is currently at a 73% on movie aggregator site RottenTomatoes.com (a 60% is considered good). Of the 108 critics reviews counted as of this writing, 79 were positive and 29 were negative. It's faring better with critics than Rock's other recent releases: GI Joe: Retaliation (28%), Snitch (58%) and Pain & Gain (46%).
- WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley will be performing his comedy act at Rivalry Championship Wrestling's Fan Fest 3 on June 22nd at 11pm at the Seaport Inn and Marina in Fairhaven, MA.
