One of the world’s first public screenings of Fast & Furious 6 – and the first South African screening – is taking place this week at Ster-Kinekor Sandton City, on Thursday, 16 May from 19:00. Ster-Kinekor has declared May as ‘Man-Size Month’ – a month action-packed with adventure-filled and adrenalin-induced movie titles at all its cinemas across the country! In order to get maximum impact for the month, popular Springbok and Blue Bulls rugby player, Francois Hougaard, has been pronounced as the ‘Man-Size Month’ ambassador.

He will be making appearances, hosting special screenings and interacting with his fans about the great line-up of movies, and an even greater competition prize up for grabs for one lucky SK Club member.


Just one of the exciting things that Francois has lined up for May is the hosting of a special pre-release screening – for SK Club members only – of the fast-paced, a-thrill-a-minute action title, Fast & Furious 6. This exclusive event, especially for the speedsters, takes place at Ster-Kinekor Sandton City on Thursday, 16 May from 19:00. So, pump up the adrenalin and get ready for the ride of your life during ‘Man-Size Month’.


If you are not yet a member of the SK Club, sign up now - online at or at your nearest cinema. Then, if you watch at least three of the six ‘Man-Size Month’ titles, Fast & Furious 6 being one of them, as a SK Club member you stand the chance of winning a trip for you and three mates to Las Vegas for an adventure of a lifetime – and remember: what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!


Bookings are now open for this exclusive screening. This one is going to be a sell-out, so you’d better move fast to secure your tickets and join Francois at the movies! The title only releases on the big screen across South Africa on Friday, 24 May.


Fast & Furious 6 (also known as Fast Six) follows a professional criminal gang, led by Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), who have retired following their successful heist in Fast Five (2011), but remain wanted fugitives. U.S. Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) offers to clear the group's criminal records and allow them to return home.


In exchange for this favour however, the gang needs to assist him in taking down a skilled mercenary organisation led by Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) and his second in command, Dominic's presumed-dead lover, Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez).


Fast & Furious 6 stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez and Luke Evans. The film is directed by Justin Lin.
