Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
Sky Movies Premiere, 8.00pm
Though the hugely successful 'Fast and Furious' franchise suffered a heavy blow in November of last year when Paul Walker died, there's a new film on the way and talk of more in the pipeline.
In this entertaining sixth instalment, Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Walker), Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and the team travel to London to investigate a possible sighting of Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). With them goes Agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), and the reason they're all so interested is that Letty is supposed to be dead, killed by Mexican drug dealers at the end of Fast & Furious 5.
Alive and well and living in London, Letty is now working with a deadly new crew led by a maniac called Shaw (Luke Evans). Hobbs wants Shaw caught, and only Dom can do it. Captain Corelli's Mandolin (2001)
