BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Continuing the Fast & Furious saga makes all of the sense in the world. In an industry where studios are starving for viable franchises, Vin Diesel and his friends – sorry, family – are coming off of a massive hit in Furious 7, which so far has banked $1.51 billion dollars worldwide.
You can understand why plans are sort of up in the air. At the time of its announcement, Furious 7 was scheduled to launch a trilogy of new stories that would pit Dom (Vin Diesel) and his crew against a fresh set of bad guys.
As plans begin to rev up for Fast & Furious 8 one of the world’s greatest living actresses, Helen Mirren, has said that she wants in, and star Vin Diesel is all for it.
He's been talking about it for years, but Vin Diesel still intends to make a Kojak movie. In fact, the production has even hired a new screenwriter.
We’ve only received a peek of The Last Witch Hunter, the supernatural action film starring Vin Diesel as an ageless warrior against these magic-wielding shitheads. However, the studio is apparently so enthralled by the franchise, it’s potential and their leading man that they are already developing The Last Witch Hunter 2… at least according to the Diesel.
After battling a devestating earthquake in San Andreas, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is getting ready to play Black Adam in the DC superhero movie Shazam. The hulking actor is so confident in his strength and powers that he believes he could best a Marvel hero with a similar name: Black Bolt.
Furious 7 has just etched its way into movie history by passing another monumental milestone.
The Fast & Furious franchise has made tremendous use of its locations over the years, from the favelas of Brazil to the deserts and skyscrapers of Abu Dhabi. New York should be an incredible playground for Dom Toretto (Diesel) and the members of his crew.
Last month, Vin Diesel took the stage at CinemaCon to announce that he and the folks at Universal Pictures are currently developing Fast & Furious 8 to be released in April 2017. Unfortunately, he didn't add any details about who else would be returning for another ride... but now one of the biggest stars has chimed in on the subject.
What would happen if you tried Furious 7's stunts? You'd instantly die, that's what would happen.
The Last Witch Hunter has Vin Diesel transforming from buff baldy to hard assed and hairy. After the jump, see if the transformation works or if the studio is more interested in scaling back .
Not only did Furious 7 kill it at the box office, but it’s trailers are also award worthy. The latest installment of the high speed car racing movie franchise has just picked up a Golden Trailer trophy for Best of Show.
Fast & Furious Franchise Has Always Tried To Up The Ante With Casting, According To Universal Chairman
After the tragic death of Paul Walker, the future of the Fast and Furious franchise seemed up in the air — at least, in the minds of the fans. But according to Universal, the franchise can continue to thrive, even in light of Walker’s passing.
The first trailer for Vin Diesel’s upcoming action-fantasy event, The Last Witch Hunter has the star “furiously” battling evil in what is being called, “a war between our world and the next.” He will apparently do so with A FLAMING BROADSWORD! As if this needed further explanation beyond that, check out the trailer in all its glory.
Movies that earn $1 billion worldwide tend to produce sequels. Fast & Furious 8 is be a no-brainer. Yet, the ridiculously lucrative Furious 7, ended with real closure, and raised some burning questions. Let's discuss.
Since Furious 7 roared past the $1 billion at the box office, Fast and Furious 8 seemed like an inevitability, and now we know when to expect it to hit theaters.
Furious 7 is apparently doing a little more than well at the box office. In fact, it continues to do phenomenally, as evidenced by the fact that the film crossed the $1 billion mark this past weekend. Additionally, this high-octane accolade also comes with another achievement since it has distinguished itself as the quickest film to have ever accomplished this feat, only having been released a bit over two weeks ago.
Furious 7 was a massive hit for Universal. Though these numbers essentially mean another sequel will be green lit, how far will the studio ride this cash cow?
While Furious 7 continues to dominate, the emotionally bittersweet component regarding the tragic passing of Paul Walker continues to define the film’s broader narrative. However, according to co-star, Vin Diesel, words from the late franchise star may be all the motivation necessary to carry on with an eighth film. (Although, the current film making a bajillion dollars also kind of helps.)
Given that Ang Lee has won two Academy Awards for Best Director, it’s not exactly a shock that the guy has the ability to bring together a talented ensemble. Still, it’s pretty fascinating to watch the eclectic cast of his latest project, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, grow.
