Back in February this year, when we couldn’t even comprehend that our entire year was going to be ruined, Vin Diesel talked about the likelihood of ending the Fast and Furious franchise with Fast 10. However, rather than being one final movie, the franchise star and producer floated the idea of creating a two-part finale, not unlike the end of franchises like Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and Twilight. Now that plan has been confirmed by Universal Pictures, and Justin Lin will be at the helm of both of the final installments of the multi-billion dollar franchise. Read More »
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.

For a series so big on togetherness, there seems to be a lot of bad blood involved behind-the-scenes of the Fast and the Furious franchise. At least where Tyrese Gibson and Dwayne Johnson are concerned. The internet beef between the two stars just got even more intense, with Gibson threatening to quit the franchise entirely if Johnson continues to be involved.

Who would have ever thought there’d be more Fast and Furious drama off screen than in all of the franchise’s movies combined? The latest shots fired come from Tyrese Gibson, who recently begged Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson not to make a spin-off movie and then flew into an Instagram rage and specifically blamed Johnson when Universal announced Fast 9 was being delayed and the spin-off was indeed happening. Apparently not even franchise paterfamilias Vin Diesel could smooth things over.
It’s clear Tyrese has no love for The Rock at this point, and now he’s posted a video of Johnson shredding Tyrese’s 2015 R&B album Black Rose. But is Johnson just kidding around in this video? Take a look and judge for yourselves, because there’s obviously nothing more important you can be doing with your time than diving into the insane feuding of the stars of one of the world’s most successful movie franchises.

It’s been quite a week for fans of the Fast and Furious franchise.
There’s officially a Fast and Furious spin-off in the works that will focus on Dwayne Johnson as Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham as former villain Deckard Shaw. The film is slated to arrive in the spring of 2019 with the possibility of Shane Black directing, but not everyone is happy about this expansion of the Fast and Furious franchise.
Tyrese Gibson took to Instagram (again) this week to complain about Dwayne Johnson’s efforts to veer off from the primary Fast and Furious franchise, claiming that he’s splitting up the “family” they’ve built over the years and that none of the characters should be going solo. Now the patriarch of this makeshift family, Vin Diesel, has basically told everyone to chill out and grow up.
Find out what the actor had to say about this Fast and Furious spin-off feud below. Read More »
Well, it’s official: there’s more beef in the Fast & Furious family than you’ll find at a butcher shop.
First, there was the feud between franchise producer/star Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson on the set of The Fate of the Furious. Tyrese Gibson, who plays the fast-talking Roman Pearce, has set his sights on The Rock in a new Instagram post in which he blames the movie star for the recent delay of Fast 9.

Is more trouble brewing behind the scenes in the Fast and Furious #family? In a now-deleted post on Instagram, Tyrese Gibson, who first joined the racing-turned-heist-movie saga in 2003’s 2 Fast 2 Furious, essentially begged Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson not to make a Fast and Furious spin-off until Fast 9 is completed. His language is particularly strange (even for Tyrese), so this deserves a much closer look.

This weekend will bring another blockbuster trailer debut, this time for the eighth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. It’s hard to believe that we’ve come this far with Vin Diesel and the rest of the crew, but here we are. So far we’ve been calling the film Fast 8, but the movie has just gotten a brand new title, and it’s both kinda silly, but still pretty cool. The sequel will be called The Fate of the Furious, but sadly not The F8 of the Furious.
In addition to the new title announcement, the first footage from the sequel has just debuted online before the full trailer arrives sometime on Sunday. It has all the insane action you’d expect, but this time in Cuba and the bitter cold of Iceland. Some of this action looks like Mad Max: Fury Road on ice, and that’s just awesome.
