Han Seoul-Oh Fast and Furious

One of the biggest fan-favorite characters in the entire Fast & Furious franchise is Han Seoul-Oh, played by actor Sung Kang. The character died in Tokyo Drift, but he was such a hit with fans that writer Chris Morgan decided to alter the entire series’ timeline in order to incorporate him into more movies in the saga.

The franchise has since closed the loop and passed beyond Han’s death, but Morgan has hinted that there’s a chance we might see him again.

Dan Trachtenberg directing 10 Cloverfield Lane

In 2011, Universal acquired a pitch for a sci-fi movie called Crime of the Century from Fast & Furious screenwriter/producer Chris Morgan. He’s producing that film, which is based on an original idea from Dan Trachtenberg (Black Mirror) and writer Daniel Kunka (12 Rounds). Trachtenberg has been on board to direct from the very beginning, long before he made his feature directorial debut last year with 10 Cloverfield Lane.

Crime of the Century has been shrouded in mystery for years as it’s inched through the development process, but I spoke with Morgan and Trachtenberg and managed to get a couple of updates about the movie. This sounds like it’s going to be huge.

The Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift Honest Trailer

Next week brings us The Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment of the surprisingly long-running action franchise from Universal Pictures. The fact that we’ve come this far in the film series is impressive, especially when you look back at the film that nearly killed it all: The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.

While the third sequel in the franchise that started out with Paul Walker and Vin Diesel in their own street racing version of Point Break removed almost everything fans liked about the first two movies, it did feature some pretty badass car action sequences. But still, as Honest Trailers points out, that’s not enough to save it from the Southern robot that is Lucas Black.

creature from the black lagoon remake

This summer’s new take on The Mummy doesn’t even open for a few more months, but Universal keeps on digging in their heels and doubling down on their new monsters universe. And while the studio waits with bated breath to see if there’s a blockbuster-sized audience for this new venture, they keep on hiring writers to shepherd new characters to the screen. And for their new take on The Creature From the Black Lagoon, a writer already very familiar with lead characters who are more able in water than on land has nabbed the job.

fate of the furious early buzz

UPDATE: We have added a new video review courtesy from our own Peter Sciretta and Collider’s Steven Weintraub.

While CinemaCon is technically the place where movie studios entice theater owners and other industry professionals with trailers and footage from their upcoming movies, sometimes they go all-in. Last night, Disney screened Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales nearly two months early. And today, Universal surprised attendees with a screening of The Fate of the Furious, offering the assembled crowd a first look at the eighth film in the long-lived (and somehow, still good) Fast and Furious series.

Our own Peter Sciretta was in attendance, so you can find his reaction as well as responses from other critics below.
