Furious 7

Eight installments in, the Fast & Furious franchise keeps growing. Not only have the movies gotten bigger, but they’ve also gotten better. Universal wants to keep the series going after F. Gary Gray‘s The Fate of the Furious, and possibly with spinoffs. Another way of strengthening the Fast & Furious brand? By making Fast & Furious Live, a global live arena tour featuring a reaction of downtown Los Angeles, big stunts, and action that’s meant to make audiences feel like they’re living life a quarter mile at a time in a Fast & Furious movie.

Below, learn more about Fast & Furious Live, which, sadly, is not a Broadway musical.

John Boyega in Pacific Rim Uprising

Ready for some jaeger-on-kaiju action? John Boyega sure looks like he is, in the first official look at Pacific Rim: Uprising. He plays Jake Pentecost, son of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba’s character from the first film), and we already know he’s a jaeger pilot like his dad. The picture doesn’t show him suited up just yet, but he looks like he’s thinking deep thoughts canceling the apocalypse and whatnot. Feast your eyes on the John Boyega Pacific Rim: Uprising image below.  Read More »

The Fate of the Furious Super Bowl spot / BTS group shot

There’s only one thing Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) cares about more in life than fast cars, and it’s family. He talks about family all the time, and goes to great lengths to show his loved ones just how much they mean to him. So what on earth could compel him to turn against them? And what’ll happen when he does? That’s the question at the heart of The Fate of the Furious, the latest entry in the ridiculously lucrative Fast & Furious series.

Whatever happens, though, what’s clear is that it’s going to involve a lot of ridiculous, over-the-top action, exotic vehicles, and glamorous locations. It’ll bring the rest of Dom’s family closer together, and might even force them to forge some unlikely alliances. Check out the Fate of the Furious Super Bowl spot below.  Read More »

John Lithgow in Pitch Perfect 3

The cast of the first Pitch Perfect already had quite the ensemble with Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittan Snow and Anna Camp leading the Bellas, with Adam DeVine, Skylar Astin and Ben Platt playing Treblemakers, not to mention Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins as the dedicated a capella commentators. Pitch Perfect 2 beefed up things ever so slightly with Hailee Steinfeld and Chrissie Fit joining the ranks of the Bellas. And now another fantastic addition is coming to Pitch Perfect 3.

Now he’s taking a role in Pitch Perfect 3. Read More »

Mortal Engines

Peter Jackson‘s adaptation of Mortal Engines was one of those projects that I always assumed would never actually happen because we’ve been hearing about it for so damn long with no signs of actual progress. The film was first announced back in 2009, with Jackson on board to direct. Then he was promptly sucked back into Middle-Earth for those three Hobbit movies, leaving everyone to wonder if this was going to turn out like The Dam Busters, a World War II drama that Jackson announced and never got around to actually making.

And then the wheels starting turning last year: Mortal Engines got the go-ahead from Universal and MRC, with Christian Rivers (one of Jackson’s longtime collaborators) sitting the director’s chair. Now, the film has gone and cast two actors, offering further evidence that this movie will actually exist one day.

Find out who joined the Mortal Engines cast after the jump.

michael fassbender

Nothing can stop Michael Fassbender. Assassin’s Creed is a box office bomb? He’ll still headline major movies. Steve Jobs becomes one of the most criminally overlooked movies of the past few years? He’ll get an Oscar nomination. X-Men: Apocalypse is an incredible disappointment? He’ll still make each and every one of his scenes sing because he’s pretty darn great at that acting thing. So yeah, I’ll take a look at Michael Fassbender as Norwegian detective Harry Hole in Tomas Alfredson‘s upcoming film adaptation of the novel, The Snowman.
