F9 Trailer

The Fast and Furious franchise hit a couple of speed bumps over the past few years with The Fate of the Furious and the series’ first spin-off, Hobbs and Shaw, but this year, we’ll see the latest entry in the primary ongoing storyline, which is officially being referred to as The Fast Saga. That means no Dwayne Johnson or Jason Statham, but instead a renewed focus on Vin Diesel‘s Dominic Toretto and his eclectic group of racers-turned-international-spies. (God, I love these movies so much.)

And thankfully, there’s one very important #family member who’s returning after a multi-year absence: Justin Lin, who directed the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth movies in this series and was really the person who hit the NOS button on this franchise and turned these films into the globe-spanning, high-octane, over-the-top action extravaganzas they are today. And hot damn, it looks like he hasn’t missed a beat getting back in the driver’s seat. Check out the first full F9 trailer below.

Community movie

The final episode of Dan Harmon‘s brilliant sitcom Community aired on Yahoo Screen – an entertainment service that doesn’t exist anymore – back in 2015. The show sort of limped across the finish line as it lost key cast members in the lead-up to its finale, and though the series ended with a whimper, the first few seasons are some of the funniest, cleverest, and straight-up best television of the past decade.

Harmon has been talking about making a Community movie for years (remember when #SixSeasonsAndAMovie was a big deal?), but things have been quiet on that front for a while. In a new interview, the showrunner explains that he’s been meeting with The Russo Brothers (Avengers: Infinity War) and director Justin Lin (Fast Five) about the possibility of actually making the movie.
