Ever rewarding his fans, Vin Diesel (The Fast and the Furious) has debuted yet another image from his upcoming film Riddick. It looks like Riddick may thrown in his lot for the rule of Westeros, because that seat looks every bit as uncomfortable as the Iron Throne. The third installment from director David Twohy features the return of the titular anti-hero, who must fight for his survival against deadly alien predators and bounty hunters with a personal stake in bringing him down. Riddick, also starring Karl Urban, debuts on September 6th. Hit the jump to check out the full image, along with what Diesel had to say about it.
A new theatrical trailer for Fast & Furious 6 has been released online. Though the supervillain for Fast & Furious 7 may have already been spoiled, we still have director Justin Lin’s eminent sequel to look forward to in the immediate future. The film moves the action of the franchise across the pond to Europe, where Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) is trying to stop a group of mercenary drivers led by an unnamed mastermind (Luke Evans) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). Hobbs recruits Dom (Vin Diesel) and his crew to help bring down the criminal outfit, and in exchange will provide pardons for the Rio heist. This trailer is essentially a shorter, edited version of the first full trailer, but it’s still a fun watch if only for the reminder that we’ll be seeing a car explode out the front of a plane in the film.

With just a couple of months to go before release, Universal Pictures has finally kicked the marketing campaign for Fast & Furious 6 into high gear. Fresh off the film’s explosive Super Bowl spot, the first full trailer was released this morning. Now the studio has unveiled a batch of new images from the film, giving us a look at the pic’s diverse ensemble and insane stunts. We’ve seen a few of the images before, but everything is now presented in glorious high-resolution. Director Justin Lin looks to have put together one massive action/heist/car chase film, and judging by what we’ve seen thus far, audiences are in for a very fun ride.

The full trailer for Fast & Furious 6 has gone online. It looks like this movie has everything fans could want and more. I’m curious what the runtime on this flick will be considering you have the whole team trying to get pardons, fighting a rival carjacking crew (a clever idea for a new foe), and the return of Dom’s love, Letty. But more than anything, it looks like director Justin Lin has pulled out all the stops to make the sixth installment the biggest and best one yet. Take it from someone who hasn’t been a big fan of the series thus far: this trailer left a big smile on my face.

Judging by my Twitter feed, people I follow absolutely lost their minds when they saw the Super Bowl spot for Fast & Furious 6. As I said in my write-up, it looks like the series has finally come into its own, and I’m eager to see what the new movie has in store (other than a car exploding out of a plane). I’m also eager to see how fans will react when the full trailer goes online later today. A sneak peek has been released, and it features Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Dom (Vin Diesel) having a conversation. It’s the vegetables before the triple-fudge-muscle-car-tank-explosion-sundae.

Over the past few months, we’ve heard a number of different titles (Fast Six, Furious 6) for the 6th installment in the Fast and Furious franchise. But thanks to the studio releasing the first poster, we know it’s officially called Fast and Furious 6. While I understand the logic in that title, I think Furious 6 sounds a lot cooler.
As we learned the other day when we posted the synopsis, the new film has Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) trying to stop a group of mercenary drivers led by an unnamed mastermind (Luke Evans) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). Hobbs recruits Dom (Vin Diesel) and his crew to help bring down the criminal outfit, and in exchange will provide pardons for the Rio heist.

Vin Diesel is ridiculously popular on Facebook (37 million likes), and he’s done a good job at using his page to promote his upcoming projects. Today, he has revealed a new image from Fast & Furious 6, and he also provided a confirmation that the first trailer will premiere during the Super Bowl on February 3rd. That’s a scant three months before the film opens, but the Super Bowl is the perfect place to show off a trailer for a movie like Fast & Furious 6. Presumably, we’ll start seeing some posters soon, and since Super Bowl ad time is ridiculously expensive, a longer trailer should debut online or in theaters soon after the Super Bowl spot.

Vin Diesel likes to talk about projects well in advance of them ever happening (if they even do), so take the following news with a grain of salt for now. The actor has been trying to get a trilogy of films about Carthaginian commander Hannibal off the ground for years, intending to make his directorial debut on the projects. Now the actor says he recently had a meeting with a studio that is keen on making all three films in his trilogy. Hit the jump for more.
We’ve got a couple of release date announcements to attend to this evening. First up, Universal Pictures has set a September 6, 2013 release date for the upcoming sequel Riddick. Directed by David Twohy, the Chronicles of Riddick follow-up finds the titular character, played by Vin Diesel, left for dead on a deserted planet filled with predators. In addition to the release date announcement, Universal has revealed that the sci-fi film will also be released in the IMAX format when it hits theaters. Currently no other films are slated for that September date.
Additionally, the 2013 White House actioner not directed by Roland Emmerich—Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen—is undergoing a slight release date shift. FilmDistrict has moved its release up to March 22, 2013 from its previous April 5th date. Gerard Butler stars as a disgraced Secret Service agent called back to duty when terrorists attack the White House. The film now squares off against DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods. Emmerich’s similarly-plotted film, White House Down, stars Channing Tatum and opens in June.
Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, two members of the writing team for Skyfall, have been set to pen the Kojak feature for Universal with Vin Diesel attached to star in the title role. The picture is based on the 1970s crime drama television series of the same name, which starred Telly Savalas as a tough and witty New York City detective with a bald head and a penchant for Tootsie Pops. Diesel, who has just wrapped on Fast and Furious 6, will also produce with Samantha Vincent for their Universal-located One Race Films. “Who loves ya, baby?” Hit the jump to find out more.
