PR Newswire, London, July 6. This press release is transmitted on behalf of United International Pictures.

We are pleased to advise that RJ De Vera, who plays Danny Yamato in `The Fast and The Furious,' will be attending the MAX POWER LIVE event at Birmingham NEC this weekend, 6 - 8 July.

Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) drives the streets of LA as if he owns them. As far as his crew is concerned, he does. He spends most of his days putting wrench time into high performance racing cars - make and model matter less than the computer controlled fuel injection that makes them fly. At night, Dom pilots his own earth bound rocket, pocketing as much as $10,000 a ride when somebody has the nerve to race to him.

The races are a street theatre tribal gathering and battlefield, fuelled by adrenaline, sexual tension and raw, out of control speed. Throngs pack otherwise desolate streets to cheer and to jeer and to belong.

Universal Pictures presents `The Fast and the Furious,' the first feature film ever to depict the adrenaline charged world of import street racing. Directed by Rob Cohen and produced by Neal H Moritz.

`The Fast and the Furious' opened in the US and on June 22 to an incredible $41.6 million dollars, which took it straight to the top slot! It opens in the UK and Ireland on September 14 and is distributed by United International Pictures.
