This news literally made me jump out of my seat with pure, franchise-linking excitement. Lucas Black, the actor who played the lead character Sean in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, will reprise his role in James Wan‘s Fast and Furious 7. But that’s not all. His contract installs him as a new series regular and he’ll be back for not only the 2014 installment, but at least two more after that. Yes, we’re likely getting at least three more Fast and Furious movies. Read More »

There really is no better title for the sequel to 2010′s Insidious than Insidious Chapter 2. Like a book filled with intense cliffhangers, the final moment of the first movie begged for more, and in this sequel we get that moment and so much more. This is the story of the Lambert family, including Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne, and it picks up right at the end of the first film. But the sequel also delves into the past, helping to complete the puzzling and frightening story co-created by director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell. (The team that created not only Insidious, but Saw too.)
Back in July, before Wan got to work on Fast and Furious 7, I got to chat with the writer and director of Insidious Chapter 2. We discussed how the sequel goes deeper into this universe’s mythology, the choices made to get there, how footage from the first movie was incorporated, what they knew and didn’t know going into the sequel and much more.
Check it out below but beware. There are minor spoilers and the interview is best read after seeing the movie. Read More »
