Fast Five wound up being one of 2011’s most unexpected pleasures, so hopefully we’re in for a treat when the first footage from Justin Lin‘s Fast and Furious 6 (or whatever it winds up being called) airs during the Super Bowl this weekend.

To prep fans for the unveiling, Universal has finally released an official synopsis explaining just what Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker), Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), and the rest of the gang will be up to in the new film — and how exactly Luke Evans‘ villain and the presumed-dead Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) factor in. Read it after the jump.

With a worldwide gross of $296 million, 2010’s Resident Evil: Afterlife was the best office performer yet of the video game-based Resident Evil film franchise. That made a fifth Resident Evil a no-brainer, so over the past year and change there’s been a steady stream of news, casting announcements, and set photos from the movie that would eventually be titled Resident Evil: Retribution.

Today we finally have the first real trailer for the Retribution, and it should be a treat for Resident Evil fans — once you get past the first 20+ seconds of Sony commercials, that is. Yep, Sony electronics ads actually make up over a third of the trailer. Watch it after the jump.

  • Shawn Levy and Hugh Jackman are confirmed for Real Steel 2 — a week and a half before Real Steel 1 has even hit theaters.
  • Michelle Rodriguez becomes the latest former Resident Evil star to board the upcoming fifth installment.

Mark Wahlberg is starring in Contraband right now — the film is a remake of the well-regarded thriller Reykjavik-Rotterdam, with Baltasar Kormakur, an actor in the original, directing the new version. The film follows a one-time smuggler (Wahlberg) who has taken a straight job as a security guard, but gets pulled back into illegal activity.

Now the ever-reliable J.K. Simmons is on board as a captain. The also-reliable Ben Foster is the brother-in-law of the main character and the guy that pulls him back into the Life; Kate Beckinsale, Giovanni Ribisi, Diego Luna and Lukas Haas are also on board. [AV Club — this interview is wonderful and a must-read for fans of the actor.]

After the break, Michelle Rodriguez goes to The Home and Robin McLeavy joins Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter after all. Read More »
