It's the bro-down of the sequels, but Fast & Furious 6 has way more left in its tank than The Hangover Part III.
Here's what to see and what to skip at the movie theater this weekend.

Vin Diesel: an action star and a gentleman.
After showing off his vocal range with a cover of Rihanna's "Stay" on Friday, The Fast and the Furious star is revealing the inspiration behind his touching performance (and his re-cut clip, below).
After seeing Rihanna perform the song at the Grammy Awards, Diesel, 45, decided to record himself singing the tune and dedicate it to his longtime girlfriend, Paloma Jimenez, in lieu of a traditional Valentine's Day card.
With the help of his daughter, Diesel obtained a mic and an amp while Jimenez was on a flight and "the rest is history," he tells PEOPLE.

This video could break the Internet, and there aren't even any cats in it.
On Feb. 14, Vin Diesel posted a video of his heartfelt cover of Rihanna's song "Stay" to his Facebook page – and in a matter of hours, the video was shared more than 26,000 times, because who doesn't want to watch the musclebound Fast & Furious star sing?
In the clip, a shadowed Diesel says, "Happy V day amore," before launching into a karaoke-style rendition of the ballad as the video (where a nude Rihanna sings in the bathtub) is projected on the wall next to him.

You like Vin Diesel. You really, really "Like" him.
The actor, 43, demolished the competition in PEOPLE's first-ever Sexiest Man Alive on Facebook poll, earning 56 percent of the vote in a five-way race, with lots of help from his 18 million Facebook fans.
So, now Vin can brag that he's not just an attractive guy – he's the hottest man in social media.

As an action hero Vin Diesel spends his time chasing bad guys and dodging explosions – but in real life he's just happy changing diapers.
The star of the upcoming Babylon A.D. – who welcomed his first child, a daughter, in April with girlfriend Paloma Jimenez – says fatherhood has given him a whole new perspective.
"Someone once told me that, when you have a child, it opens up parts of your heart that you never knew existed. And it is so true," Diesel told Parade magazine. "It's like you have a child and you think, 'Everything that I've done up until this point is insignificant in comparison to being a father.' It's a beautiful, beautiful thing."

Though the old Hollywood adage says never work with animals or children, Vin Diesel, who costars with a brood of tykes in the hit comedy The Pacifier, disagrees. "I think that it's so inaccurate because when you work with kids, all you have to do is step out of the way and let them shine. It was so easy," he tells us. Easy, but also hard to shake. While filming his next movie, the Sidney Lumet-directed drama Find Me Guilty, "I would be standing on-site rocking back and forth," Diesel recalls. "Sidney said, 'Why are you rocking back and forth? You're (playing) a 48-year-old attorney that's living in prison. Why are you doing this?' I was so accustomed to having a baby that I kept going back and forth like this. I couldn't stop it. I kept doing this like I had a baby on me."
