The first trailer and poster for John Stockwell’s In the Blood, starring Gina Carano, are now available for you to enjoy.  The actioner finds Carano’s character on a violent path to track down the people responsible for kidnapping her husband during a tropical vacation.  The interesting thing about this first look at In the Blood isn’t so much the plot (we’ve seen similar stories in decades of male-fronted action films), but the fact that the gender roles have been inverted.  You can see for yourself after the jump, but Carano isn’t just playing the action star – she’s the real deal.

Also starring Cam Gigandet, Luis Guzmán, Amaury Nolasco, Ismael Cruz Cordoba, Treat Williams, Stephen Lang, and Danny Trejo, In the Blood opens April 4th.  Hit the jump to check out the first trailer and poster.

FAST & FURIOUS 6 Blu-ray Review

It’s now nearly impossible to watch Fast & Furious 6, and not reflect on the passing of star Paul Walker.  Surely this big fun summer movie will now be tinged with a melancholy that it will be the last time Walker got to play Brian O’Conner in total.  But removed from the context of grief, Furious 6 (as it’s titled on screen) is a lot of fun, for the most part.  Vin Diesel, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez co-star in this tale of underground racers turned crime-fighters.  My review of Fast and Furious 6 follows after the jump. 

Gina Carano Developing AVENGELYNE Adaptation with Rob Liefeld as Star Vehicle

While the proposed female Expendables movie may or may not come to fruition, MMA fighter/actress Gina Carano is making moves to topline an action vehicle of her own.  Heat Vision reports that Carano and comics creator Rob Liefeld are teaming up to develop a feature film adaptation of Liefeld’s comic Avengelyne.  The story of the comic centers on the titular angel who fights off demons, monsters, etc., and the proposed film is said to be in the vein of the Underworld series.  Carano and Liefeld are working together to reconceive the property as a starring vehicle for the actress, and one imagines plenty of ass will be kicked.  The two will be onhand at Comic-Con on Saturday to meet with fans and sign posters that portray Carano as Avengelyne.

Carano only recently made the move to acting with a solid debut in Haywire and a supporting role in Fast & Furious 6.  A search for a writer or writer/director to put on Avengelyne will begin next week, but there doesn’t appear to be a studio attached just yet.

FAST & FURIOUS 6 Review

Fast & Furious 6 is a machine running close to peak performance.  The Fast & Furious franchise has been stripped down and rebuilt through six iterations.  It’s gone from racing to revenge to a heist and now it’s forced to find its own identity.    After finding a good group of characters and upping the stakes in the action scenes, there’s finally a level of confidence instead of simply watching fast cars drive around.  The new movie struts into the room and proudly proclaims, “If we’re going to be goofy and loud, we’re going to be the goofiest, loudest movie we can be!”  It’s almost admirable in its own twisted way.  After four films, Justin Lin‘s direction has finally matched the ambition of his set pieces, and aside from indulging in the “family is everything” treacle, Fast & Furious 6 is easily the best film in the franchise yet.

Universal Pictures has released a final trailer for Fast Five director Justin Lin’s sequel Fast & Furious 6, and it’s chock-full of summer blockbuster goodness. This trailer does a great job of showing off the film’s ginormous scale, as we get some extended looks at Lin’s many action sequences.  Car chases through the streets of Europe, brutal fistfights in which The Rock pulls some legit wrestling moves, and a car chase/fight sequence involving a tank are all things we can look forward to with Fast & Furious 6.  Producer Neal Moritz recently told us that the film features two or three of “the best action sequences you will ever see” and noted that Fast 6 is the best film of the series yet.  We’ll get a chance to judge for ourselves in a few short weeks, but this trailer definitely makes the film look like one hell of a ride.

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.

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  The film also stars Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris Bridges, Elsa Pataky, and Gina Carano.  Fast & Furious 6 opens May 24th.

First Poster for FAST AND FURIOUS 6

fast-and-furious-6-poster-slice

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.  The film also stars Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky, and Gina Carano.  Hit the jump to check out the first poster and come back tomorrow to check out the first footage from the film.

EXPENDABELLES Lands LEGALLY BLONDE Scribes; Richard Wenk to Re-Write MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE

Kirsten Smith-Karen McCullah Lutz-expendabelles-richard-wenk-masters-of-the-universe-slice

It looks like the all-female version of The Expendables (the one produced by Adi Shankar and written by Dutch Southern) now has some competition:  Millenium Films’ The ExpendaBelles, an action picture which recently landed a pair of scribes.  Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah Lutz of Legally Blonde will pen the script for the mercenary movie.  The writing duo is responsible for past films like 10 Things I Hate About You, She’s the Man and The House Bunny, so we’ll see if they can up the action in their interpretation. As Deadline reports, The ExpendaBelles should be the first film in an expected franchise.  The other as-of-yet untitled all-female version of The Expendables currently has ass-kickers Gina Carano (Haywire) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) on board.  Are there enough action heroines to go around for two of these films?

In related actioner news, Richard Wenk, who co-wrote the screenplay for The Expendables 2, has been tapped to re-write the Masters of the Universe treatment.  Hit the jump for more on that story. 

Katee Sackhoff Fights Alongside Gina Carano in Female EXPENDABLES

Action veteran Katee Sackhoff will put her Battlestar Galactica skills to the test alongside Gina Carano in the all-female version of The Expendables.  We previously posted Carano’s attachment to the Adi Shankar production and the news about Sackhoff comes as a welcome addition for sci-fi fans.  We’ve yet to see a veteran action heroine added to the cast (ie Sigourney Weaver, Linda Hamilton, etc), but the picture is building a solid young core of experienced action stars to carry what will hopefully be a successful franchise.  Hit the jump for more on Sackhoff’s addition and the reaction from Shankar.

Gina Carano to Topline Female EXPENDABLES Movie

by     Posted 2 years, 35 days ago

Just a short while ago we announced the production of a female version of The Expendables Now, we have word that up-and-coming action star Gina Carano (Haywire) is set to topline the untitled picture.  Carano was briefly mentioned in our fantasy cast for Adi Shankar’s production, which Dutch Southern is writing. The former American Gladiators star certainly has the goods to be the face of the ladies’ version of the franchise, but it would be a missed opportunity not to include some of cinema’s classic action heroines.  Hit the jump to see what Shankar had to say about Carano joining the picture.
