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 »

Some of these names are totally plausible. Some are wishful thinking. Others are here just because the thought of them directing a big-budget superhero movie makes me giggle uncontrollably. Most of all, this an excuse for us to just goof off and daydream while Warner Bros. figures everything out.

Universal doesn’t want their Fast & Furious franchise to end anytime soon. Fast & Furious 7 made over $1.5 billion dollars at the box office, and even aside from the money, this series shows no signs of slowing down. Director Justin Lin raised the bar with Fast Five, making these movies more popular than ever before. Understandably, Universal wants to keep the brand going outside of the main franchise, and they may plan on doing that with spinoffs.
A new rumor indicates Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) will return for Fast & Furious 8, following her brief post-credits cameo in Fast Five and possibly ahead of her own spinoff film. Learn more about the potential Fast and Furious spinoff after the jump.

The Fast and Furious films are essentially superhero movies at this point, with Dominic Toretto and his family as the Avengers, if the Avengers’ one shared superpower was the ability to break the laws of physics in really expensive cars. So it was probably just a matter of time before they borrowed another page out of the superhero movie playbook. Specifically, the one titled “Marvel-style shared universes.”
Star Vin Diesel has revealed that the team behind the franchise is in the early stages of developing prequels and spinoffs. But the focus for now is on getting three more proper sequels out (including Furious 8, to be directed by F. Gary Gray). More on the Fast and Furious shared universe plans after the jump. Read More »

However, that doesn’t mean that Disney has given up the hunt for someone to step up and replace Trank in the director’s chair for the project being developed by Simon Kinberg. Reportedly, Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray (who just signed on to direct Furious 8) was being considered for the Star Wars Story, and along with that, he said there’s a possibility of seeing Michael B. Jordan as Boba Fett.
