FURIOUS 7 Trailer: Vin Diesel and the Family Return

by     Posted 18 days ago

Universal Pictures has released the first Furious 7 trailer for director James Wan’s (The Conjuring) action sequel.  I really dig how it starts off with an extended action sequence and think that’s a fantastic beat where Walker has to grab the rim of the car giving him an extra few feet of purchase on that clip.  Aside from that, the movie looks huge!  It definitely seems like more fun than the sixth installment and I’m hard pressed to think of an entry that looks as vibrantly colorful as this one (they seem to be leaning in to the humor as well).  It definitely looks like Wan successfully pulled off the transition from horror to action without missing a beat.  As a recent fan of these movies (my love for them got ignited with Fast 5), it’s nice to have something unabashedly fun to look forward to.

Hit the jump to watch the Furious 7 trailer.  The film stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Jason StathamTyrese GibsonKurt RussellLudacrisNathalie EmmanuelDjimon HounsouLucas Black, and John BrothertonFurious 7 opens in theaters on April 10, 2015.  I’ll most certainly be there.  “I don’t have friends.  I got family.”

Poster For The Newly Titled FURIOUS 7, Trailer Hitting In Seven Days

So strange.  I was just watching Fast & Furious 6 on HBO Go last night and noticed that the title card actually just read Furious 6, which I thought was a nice compliment to the fifth installment (which was officially titled Fast 5).  So now that Fast & Furious 7 seems to formally be titled Furious 7, I don’t know what to think.  Actually, I do know what to think, which its not worry about the title so much and to look forward to some insanely fun ridiculousness next year.   Though director James Wan described the shoot as a challenge when I spoke to him recently, he also said he was incredibly proud of the film and that sentiment is definitely echoed in the text accompanying the poster reveal.

The film also stars Vin Diesel, Paul WalkerDwayne JohnsonMichelle RodriguezJason Statham, LudacrisTyrese GibsonRonda RouseyTony JaaNathalie EmmanuelLucas BlackJohn BrothertonDjimon Hounsou, and Kurt Russell.  Furious 7 opens in theaters on April 3, 2015.  Hit the jump for a better look poster and a note accompanying the trailer announcement.  It will be an interactive event that fans can participate in as well. 

FAST & FURIOUS 7 Wraps Production; Shares Heartfelt Note and New Image Commemorating Tough Shoot

by     Posted 132 days ago

fast-furious-7-wraps

Shooting has just officially wrapped on Fast & Furious 7.  The tumultuous, to say the least, production faced innumerable hurdles following the tragic death of star Paul Walker in November.  I imagine those involved are glad they pushed on but relieved that the ordeal is drawing to a close.  I also imagine director James Wan has a bear of a post-production schedule ahead of him. Assembling the film in the proper manner to respectfully work around Walker’s death (and the various methods employed in replacing him) has to be a pretty intense juggling act.

FAST & FURIOUS 6 Blu-ray Review

fast-and-furious-6-images-slice

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. 

Watch: Trailer for MACHETE KILLS AGAIN… IN SPACE

by     Posted 1 year ago

When Robert Rodriguez first announced firm plans for a Machete sequel at Comic-Con a few years back, he added that he was envisioning a trilogy that would be capped by a space-set Machete film.  Judging by the poor box office receipts for Machete Kills (it finished with a paltry $14 million worldwide), a third film seems highly unlikely, but we have a little preview of what might have been by way of a trailer for Machete Kills Again…In Space.  The fake trailer played in front of Machete Kills, but seeing as how very few people actually saw the sequel in theaters, it has now landed online for all to see.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer, which features appearances by Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Alex Vega, Lady Gaga, and a couple of other celebrity “cameos.”

Vin Diesel has been very open with sharing photos from the set of Fast & Furious 7.  It’s a nice way to connect with fans, and proof that just because a movie is highly anticipated, that doesn’t mean the set has to be locked down like Fort Knox.  Of course, there’s nothing in here that will spoil the movie, but it’s fun to see Diesel and Jason Statham, who plays the film’s heavy, looking over the script. It’s also funny to see a glass of wine between them even though it’s a prop.

Hit the jump to check out the set photos.  The film also stars Paul Walker, Tony Jaa, Tyrese Gibson, Kurt Russell, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Djimon Hounsou, Lucas Black, John Brotherton, and Dwayne JohnsonFast & Furious 7 opens July 11, 2014.

A new trailer has been released for Robert Rodriguez’ Machete Kills.  The film centers on Machete’s (Danny Trejo) quest to stop an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has plans to spread war and anarchy across the planet.  This new trailer provides more of a “plot” synopsis, but mostly gives us a look at the supporting cast, which includes Lady Gaga, Cuba Gooding Jr., Antonio Banderas, and Mel Gibson as the villain.  Judging by this new trailer, Rodriguez has run out of ways to make Machete fun and interesting, and is now just making a really long Funny or Die video where celebrities briefly take on ridiculous roles.

Yesterday, we saw the first trailer for Machete Kills, and today, a new character poster has been released featuring Michelle Rodriguez as “Shé”, the taco-truck operator/revolutionary who becomes a one-eyed avenger.  Along with Danny Trejo (Machete) and Jessica Alba (Sartana Rivera), Rodriguez is the only returning cast member from the first movie.  The cast for the sequel is filled with new faces including Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Charlie SheenLady GagaAntonio Banderas, Demian BichirAlex VegaVanessa HudgensCuba Gooding Jr.William SadlerMarko Zaror, and Mel Gibson.  I’m sure each of them will get a character poster, which is great for everyone who has been hungering for a Cuba Gooding Jr. poster.

First Trailer for MACHETE KILLS [Updated]

Open Road Films has released the first trailer for director Robert Rodriguez’s sequel Machete Kills.  The film centers on Machete’s (Danny Trejo) quest to stop an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has plans to spread war and anarchy across the planet.  This trailer was released on Yahoo!’s Spanish-language site, but the dialogue is in English.  It looks like fun, but so did Machete, which made Trejo a supporting character in his own movie.  A large cast is fun, but Rodriguez always seems to have trouble finding the right balance (he had the same problem with Once Upon a Time in Mexico).  Hopefully, Machete Kills will be an improvement on the first film. [Update: We've added the English-language version, which is the same except now English-language speakers can understand the narration]

FAST & FURIOUS 6 Review

by     Posted 1 year, 180 days ago

fast-furious-6-tyrese-gibson-slice

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.

Final Trailer for FAST & FURIOUS 6 Teases the Film’s Massive Amount of Action

fast-furious-6-tank-slice

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.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film stars Vin DieselPaul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Joe TaslimSung Kang, Gina Carano, and Luke EvansFast & Furious 6 opens on May 24th.
