Fast and Furious Supercharged, the new attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood, is like a shot of Nos. It lays dormant, you know it’s there, then when it comes up unexpectedly, it’s crazy fast and great but over very quickly.
“Nos” is a brand of nitrous oxide used in the Fast and Furious movies to give the cars a boost of speed, which is exactly what Fast and Furious Supercharged does for an already classic ride. You see Supercharged is the finale of the Universal Studio Tour, the iconic tram ride that takes you on the back lot of Universal Studios Hollywood, through a ton of memorable locations and settings. Jaws, Psycho, King Kong, there’s a bunch of stuff here. And for a while, you almost forget Fast and Furious is part of it all. But then, it hits you hard and it’s a super exciting ending to the ride.
Fast and Furious Supercharged opens to the public June 25 but, below, you can read more about it. Read More »

Dwayne Johnson is having a hell of a year, with Furious 7 and San Andreas already behind him and his new HBO show Ballers ahead of him. And we’re hoping his winning streak will continue into 2016 with Central Intelligence, from Dodgeball and We’re the Millers director Rawson Marshall Thurber.
The new comedy stars Johnson as Bob, described by Johnson as “Tom Hanks in Big with an added twist.” The twist being that sweet, simple Bob is a super intelligent, extra deadly CIA contract killer. Get your Central Intelligence first look after the jump. Read More »

News of a beloved film being remade is rarely good news. The closest you can get, however, is something along the lines of Dwayne Johnson starring in a remake of John Carpenter‘s Big Trouble in Little China. I’m 100% behind the “Why remake a perfect movie?” argument but if it’s going to happen anyway, Johnson as the star is a major plus.
Johnson’s attitude toward the movie is an even bigger plus. In a new interview, the San Andreas star said he hopes they can be respectful to the original and even wants John Carpenter himself to come on board. Read the quotes below. Read More »

Later this month, Universal Studios Hollywood is going to launch a one of a kind experience called Fast and Furious Supercharged. Yes, it’s a ride inside a theme park based on the Fast and Furious franchise so you know there will be speed and mayhem. However, beyond that, Supercharged is very different from what you’re expecting. It’s a multi-stage story told through out the entire, world famous, Universal Studios Studio Tour tram ride culminating in a 360 degree experience that’ll have you racing through the streets of Los Angeles.
Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Luke Evans all filmed footage for the ride – which opens June 25 and /Film was lucky enough to get a behind the scenes tour. Below we’ll give you an idea of the craziness behind, and during, Fast and Furious Supercharged. Read More »

Maybe it just took a big opening weekend for a non-franchise movie for The Rock to get this one rolling, but here is is: Dwayne Johnson will star in a Big Trouble in Little China remake.
John Carpenter’s 1986 film, originally designed as a western but modernized to be a San Francisco-set martial arts action/comedy starring Kurt Russell, is one of the set of Carpenter classics that has yet to be remade. In fact, we hadn’t even heard much news of a developing remake. So while all side-eyes were on the slow-developing Escape From New York remake this one snuck in. What details we have on the Big Trouble in Little China remake are below. Read More »

Fans who were looking forward to Dwayne Johnson playing a comic book character were probably a little disappointed when Warner Bros. released their big, upcoming, DC schedule last year. Among all the huge movies and announcements was the fact Johnson’s Black Adam wouldn’t appear until 2019 when Shazam hit theaters.
A few months back though, Johnson suggested that release date might be moved forward and now he’s at it again. The actor believes Shazam will be released earlier than 2019. Read about the potential Shazam release date change below. Read More »

As of the beginning of April, there hadn’t been any public movement on Fast and Furious 8. However, once CinemaCon rolled around later that month, Universal Pictures got the hype machine started by announcing a release date on April 14th, 2017. And while there’s likely not a complete story developed for the sequel just yet, that hasn’t stopped one of the film’s stars from confirming that he will be back for more action. At a press conference for San Andreas (coming to theaters later this month), Dwayne Johnson revealed that we’ll definitely see him in Fast and Furious 8, and we may still get more Hobbs action in his own movie too.
