Buckle up! The sixth chapter in the adrenaline-fueled franchise will burn rubber on Blu-ray in limited edition Steelbook packaging this December!

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal has slated 'Fast & Furious 6' for a Blu-ray release on December 10.

The latest blistering addition to one of Hollywood’s greatest action-movie franchises, 'Fast & Furious 6,' roars into the holiday season as the unbeatable choice for “Highest-Octane action yet!” (Meriah Doty, Yahoo!) A transcontinental caper that reunites fan-favorite stars from the blockbuster franchise’s earlier films, Fast & Furious 6 earned almost $800 million at the box office worldwide.

Fast veterans Vin Diesel ('Riddick,' 'xXx'), Paul Walker ('Takers,' 'Flags of Our Fathers') and Dwayne Johnson ('Pain and Gain,' 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation') lead an all-star cast that includes Jordana Brewster ('The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning,' “Dallas”), Tyrese Gibson ('Transformers,' 'Death Race'), Chris “Ludacris” Bridges ('Crash,' 'RocknRolla'), Sung Kang ('Ninja Assassin,' 'Live Free or Die Hard'), John Ortiz ('Silver Linings Playbook,' 'American Gangster'), Gal Gadot ('Night and Day,' 'Date Night'), Elsa Pataky ('All Things to All Men,' 'The Wine of Summer') and, for the first time since 2009’s 'Fast and Furious,' Michelle Rodriguez ('Resident Evil,' 'Turbo'), plus series newcomers Luke Evans ('Immortals,' 'The Three Musketeers') and MMA-champion Gina Carano ('Haywire,' 'Blood and Bone'). Director Justin Lin and screenwriter Chris Morgan team up for their fourth 'Fast & Furious' collaboration, hailed “Fun, entertaining and sexy” by Jake Hamilton of FOX-TV, and packed with “bigger fights, badder villains, bolder chases,” according to Elizabeth Weitsman of The NY Daily News.
