Fast and Furious 9 Details

It’s hard to believe, but we’re coming up on the ninth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. What started off as a throwaway action movie in 2001 has become a muti-billion dollar film franchise that is popular around the world. But the Fast and Furious franchise has never forgotten its roots, especially when it comes to family. Now it seems like Fast and Furious 9 might take us back to an event in Dom’s life that was first mentioned in that original movie from 18 years ago. Read More »

Francis Ngannou

Since Dwayne Johnson won’t be returning for Fast and Furious 9, the sequel needs to find some muscle elsewhere. They’ve already brought in John Cena for a role in the franchise, but instead of reaching back into the world of wrestling for another cast member, they’ve snagged a UFC fighter to get in on the action. Francis Ngannou, the #2 fighter in the heavyweight division of UFC, is joining the Fast and Furious 9 cast. Read More »

michelle rodriguez justice for han

There’s more trouble brewing in the Fast and Furious family.

Michelle Rodriguez, who plays Letty, has voiced her displeasure with the way the franchise has treated its female characters in the past, though she seemed to resolve that dispute earlier this year. But now she’s taken to Twitter to dismiss the contributions of writer/producer Chris Morgan, who has been the architect of the Fast franchise since 2006’s The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Specifically, Rodriguez says that Morgan has nothing to do with the “Justice for Han” narrative. Take a look at her comment below. Read More »

Hobbs and Shaw trailer

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is now in theaters and it is a bonkers action movie that brings the street racing franchise into soft sci-fi territory and a step closer to their inevitable movie set in space. Who would have thought back in the early 2000s that a franchise that started with petty criminals and street racing would one day introduce superhuman cybernetics and a programmable virus? With the franchise’s first spin-off (unless you count Tokyo Drift) feeling like such a departure from the early years of the Fast & Furious movies, let’s take a scroll down memory lane to see how we got here.

Hobbs and Shaw Spoiler Review

Spoiler alert: It’s about family.

And that’s it? We can end this article there, right?

Okay. We’ll go beyond that. When taking about Hobbs and Shaw, the latest film in the Fast and Furious saga, it helps to step back a bit when reflecting on the ridiculousness of the first spin-off from what I’ve dubbed the Fast and Furii (I’ll keep going ‘till it catches on, dammit). And here’s your real spoiler warning: all plot points are on the table from here on out.

Fast and Furious male stars

In the early 1980s, William Goldman spent a considerable portion of his beloved screenwriting book Adventures in the Screen Trade writing about how important it was in that era to protect a movie star’s image and cushion their egos, giving them the best lines and making sure they always seem like the heroes.

More than three decades later, the film industry has changed in ways Goldman probably never thought possible – but there’s one thing that remains the same.

A new report from The Wall Street Journal goes behind the scenes of the Fast and Furious franchise and examines the demands and behaviors of its male leads – specifically Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Jason Statham – and the lengths they’ll go to in order to avoid looking weak on screen.

Justice for Han in Hobbs and Shaw

Han Seoul-Oh, the constantly snacking, effortlessly cool Fast and Furious character played by Sung Kang, was killed on screen by Jason Statham‘s Deckard Shaw, a character who has since ingratiated himself into Dominic Toretto’s “family” even after murdering one of its best members. That sparked the #JusticeForHan movement, something that franchise writer/producer Chris Morgan is very aware of.

“You should know, in terms of Justice For Han, nobody feels that more than us,” Morgan told me in a recent phone interview promoting this week’s spin-off, Hobbs and Shaw. Our full interview will be published soon, but below, you can find out how this film addresses that death and what Morgan is planning for Deckard Shaw’s arc going forward.
