han in f9

The death of Han (Sung Kang) in the Fast and Furious franchise is one of the series’ single most important moments. It sparked the #JusticeForHan movement, has been depicted numerous times from several different angles across multiple movies, and Han’s impending doom cast a melancholy shadow over the films set before that event on the franchise’s complex timeline.

But somehow, Han is back in F9, and early reviews suggest that his return is handled in a satisfying way. So how exactly does that resurrection happen? Actor Sung Kang is not telling – in fact, he wanted to preserve the reveal so badly that he didn’t even share the secret with his wife. Read More »

Jurassic World Dominion Villain

The IMAX extended preview for Jurassic World: Dominion is, unsurprisingly, chock-full of dinosaurs. What kinds of dinosaurs, you may ask? Well, I have answers for you!

Director Colin Trevorrow worked with Industrial Light and Magic to create a sequence that shows seven new species of dinosaurs in their natural habitat circa 65 million years ago. Those dinosaurs go by pretty quickly — it’s a short piece of footage, after all — and for dinosaur enthusiasts who, like avid birders, want to chronicle each sighting, I’ve put together a dino-spotting checklist.

Before you check out the preview this weekend, give this list a careful read (or print it out and bring it to the theater with you!). When it comes to dino-spotting, it’s best to be prepared.

justin lin f9 interview

When Justin Lin was directing 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, the idea of bringing the action series to an end was a pipe dream. Lin was preparing to exit the Fast and Furious franchise, moving on to direct a Star Trek film and episodes of prestige TV like True Detective, and the concept of bringing the Fast and Furious movies to a satisfying close was something better suited to casual chatter with star Vin Diesel, not something that was actually on the table. Cut to nine years later, and Lin is preparing to bring the first part of Fast and Furious‘s closing trilogy to theaters. But the movie has been long in the works, with the story stemming back to those conversations that Lin had with Diesel and Paul Walker, before the latter’s death in 2013.

“Vin [Diesel] would come in and talk and Paul [Walker] was actually part of that conversation,” Lin told me in an interview ahead of the U.S. theatrical debut of F9. “And I’ve always thought it was just an exercise, I was thinking, ‘We’re never going to realize it.’ And then when I came back for this, Vin said, ‘Well, now that I got you back, you’re not leaving. We’re gonna finish this thing together.'”

In our interview, Lin talks about the idea that inspired him to return to direct F9, which he co-writes with Daniel Casey, being bullied into sticking around by Diesel, Justice for Han, and the scrapped practical stunt that he regrets not using his own money to pay for.
