The Fate of the Furious director's cut

The director’s cut of The Fate of the Furious is 13 minutes longer. This franchise has a more-is-more attitude, which generally works in its favor, so even more of Dom and the family probably sounds all right for fans of the series. Director F. Gary Gray says his cut has more action and humor, but also punches up some of the characters and provides some breathing room.

Below, the Straight Outta Compton director discusses The Fate of the Furious director’s cut.

jumanji

How do you go about updating Jumanji for 2017? By transforming that magical (and dangerous) board game of the title into a video game, of course. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a sort-of sequel to Joe Johnston’s 1995 film, with Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan stepping in for Robin Williams. Since that film has its fair share of nostalgic fans, the first trailer for this sequel/reboot is surely going to undergo some scrutiny.

So let’s get the scrutinizing started.

Skyscraper synopsis

Here’s something I didn’t see coming: Scream star Neve Campbell has signed on to star in Skyscraper, the new Dwayne Johnson-led action film from Dodgeball and Central Intelligence director Rawson Marshall Thurber. Plus, there’s a new synopsis that fills in a bit more of the movie’s plot, which involves Johnson’s character’s quest to rescue his family from a burning building.

Robin Williams casts a large shadow on Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the upcoming sequel to Jumanji, the 1995 adventure film for which the now-passed comedian was beloved by many a ’90s kid.

While we knew that the sequel starring Dwayne Johnson planned to pay tribute to Williams, we weren’t sure if it would be in a passing reference or line of dialogue. But co-star Jack Black has revealed exactly how Williams’ character Alan Parrish will play into the plot of the Jumanji sequel. Hit the jump to learn about the Jumanji 2 Robin Williams tribute.

Dwayne Johnson is on the hunt for one big silverback gorilla. The nearly nonexistent story of Midway’s classic arcade game, Rampage, has been adapted into a story about primatologist Davis Okoye and his best friend, a gorilla named George. Brad Peyton‘s (San Andreas) film is all about one beefy animal lover trying to save the day and his closest pal.

simon and garfunkel universe

With the uncanny coincidence of two Simon and Garfunkel-inspired movie titles, Marc Webb‘s The Only Boy Living in New York and Edgar Wright‘s Baby Driver, coming out this summer, Wright made a tweet for the asking of others to join this accidental Simon and Garfunkel Song Title Cinematic Universe.

Amazingly, Wright managed to recruit Rian Johnson, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Dwayne Johnson, in what possibly might be the best imagined cinematic universe ever. Though who knows, with projects started on Twitter now becoming a thing, the Simon and Garfunkel movie universe may not be a fake premise for long.

baywatch sequel

Baywatch has faced a tsunami of middling to bad reviews, but that won’t stop the comedy-action movie from jetting forward to a sequel, and possibly, a franchise.

Producers and writers are already planning a sequel to Baywatch with the cast, led Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, returning in their roles. Baywatch itself is a big-screen reboot of the popular ’90s TV show starring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, and a sequel would somewhat follow the footsteps of the successful movie reboot of 21 Jump Street. Though, according to reviews, that’s the only thing they have in common.

Baywatch Review

It’s time for the second big studio comedy of the summer to hit theaters in the form of Baywatch, the big screen adaptation of the popular TV series from the 1990s that starred David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson.

Hitting the beach are Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as a couple of musclehead lifeguards who get caught up in some high stakes action and danger. All the trailers have teased an action comedy in the same vein of 21 Jump Street, but if the first Baywatch reviews are any indication, then it’s nowhere near as good, and it barely keeps itself afloat.

Read on for the Baywatch review round-up after the jump. Read More »
