Universal Pictures has released the first movie trailer for the latest installment of the Fast and the Furious series, Fast Five. The film stars Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris. Justin Lin, who has directed the last couple of sequels (beginning with The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift in 2006), directed this latest installment. I havent really enjoyed a film in this series since the original movie. I must admit, this trailer actually makes the new sequel look like it could actually be fun. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Chances are it’s going to be a good day when you wake up with a trailer description for the new Transformers movie in your inbox. And that’s what happened today. Our friends at the Italian site Bad Taste saw the teaser trailer for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, starring Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel and Patrick Dempsey, and want to tell everyone about it. The teaser played in 3D at a large convention called the Giornate Professionali di Cinema di Sorrento in Sorrento, Italy which also, reportedly, screened footage from Paul Anderson’s The Three Musketeers 3D and the trailer for Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon will be released on July 1 and this teaser is rumored to be attached to The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader and TRON: Legacy in the coming weeks. Read the description after the jump. Read More »

One would think after Universal dropped the definite article from the title of The Fast and The Furious movies, that would be the end. But then Fast and Furious, the fourth film in the series, went on to gross $155 million including an insane $70 million opening weekend and everyone knew the fifth one was coming. And now it’s almost here.
Fast Five, starring Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster and Dwayne Johnson will hit theaters on June 10, 2011 from director Justin Lin, who also directed the previous two films. And though it has been rumored for a long time, the official plot synopsis finally confirms that not only will the film be set in Brazil but that it will incorporate characters from 2 Fast 2 Furious played by Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Tyrese Gibson and more. Hit the jump for the full cast list and plot synopsis. Read More »

We’ve been hearing about a possible Luke Cage movie for a few years now, and with Marvel Studios gearing up for some lower budget comic book adaptations, could it be soon before we finally see Cage on the big screen? The Los Angeles Times mentioned that Marvel has already begun talks with “a notable Hollywood star” about the property.
Not that we didn’t expect him back for another go around, but Tyrese Gibson has confirmed that he will be reprising his role as Sgt. Epps in Michael Bay‘s Transformers 3. In a post on Twitter, he confirmed by saying that “Yes I will for sure be in Transformers 3.. Get Ready!! Epps is here to STAY!!”. Written by Ehren Kruger, Bay has described the screenplay as “feeling very different from the other two”, promising that the story will be much more about character, and will feature a lot less robots than Revenge of The Fallen. The film is being prepped for a shoot later this year, with an announced July 1st 2011 release date. Last we heard, Paramount was pushing Bay to shoot the film in 3D. Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox are both expected to return for the threequel, reprising their roles as Sam Witwicky and Mikaela Banes.
Maximum PC has a bunch of spy shots from the still-being-set-up Comic-Con show floor, most of which isn’t too interesting (boxes being unpacked, displays being assembled). The one that caught my attention is this advertisement for the Screen Gems film Legion. The image of an angel holding a knife and a gun is very striking.
Bay promised that the sequel will feature a lot more actual Transformers, but he certainly isn’t dialing back much on the human components. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that a bunch of the original Transformers cast has signed on to return for the sequel. Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro will reprise their roles in Michael Bay’s Transformers 2.
I think it has always been assumed that Fox would return as Sam’s girlfriend (or possibly ex-girlfriend). I’m also not surprised that Duhamel and Gibson are being brought back as the human faces of the military, especially since they have tactical experience battling the big robots (or at least that’s what I hope the storyline military’s explanation is, because if Duhamel and Gibson’s characters just happen to be in the right place at the right time, that would be really sloppy screenwriting). I am somewhat shocked that Turturro is being brought as his s7 role seemed to polarize audiences. Some people loved him, some thought he was annoying and took away from the film.
