After a huge delay, we’re finally only a few months away from the release of F9, which will be coming out 20 years after 2001’s The Fast and the Furious. And according to producer/star Vin Diesel, this new sequel has a special connection to the film that kicked off this franchise: F9 actually goes back in time and gives audiences a peek into the origins of his Dominic Toretto character. Plus, Diesel revealed that F9 will revisit a scene from the original movie from a different angle. And did he just reveal a big surprise about who is going to show up in Fast 10? Get the details below. Read More »
The entire history of cinema has been leading to this moment. A Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots movie is on the way, and it will star Vin Diesel, because of course it will. The film is inspired by the classic toy fighting game from Mattel in which two clunky plastic robots punch each other’s heads off. Diesel will produce and star in the film, and he seems to think the property has “world-building, franchise making” potential – and who are we to argue?

Here’s a pitch for you: Furious Babies. It’s like Muppet Babies, but with the Fast and Furious crew. If no one wants to take me up on that idea I guess I’ll have to be content with F9, which is going to feature a mini-Dom Toretto played by Vin Diesel‘s son Vincent Sinclair. F9 is exploring Dom’s backstory even further and introducing his brother, played by John Cena. So it stands to reason we’re getting some sort of flashback to Dom’s youth, and maybe we’ll see him stealing bikes or remote control cars or something like that.

Universal was one of the first studios to shift gears on its biggest blockbuster last year when the pandemic hit, bumping its Fast and Furious sequel a full year down the calendar. Now that we’re into 2021, that means we’re closer than ever to finally seeing F9, and in a new interview, star/producer Vin Diesel teases the return of two major characters to the franchise, says Helen Mirren actually gets to get behind the wheel in this one, and more.

Christopher Nolan is one of the most acclaimed blockbuster filmmakers in the game, and he has a vibe that sometimes feels a little stuffy, even if he’s not necessarily cold in real life. For example, many were shocked to learn that Nolan is a huge fan of the goofy comedy MacGruber, so much that he even sent an e-mail wishing luck to everyone when production on Peacock’s sequel series pilot began. Now we’re learning that Nolan likes his junk food action cinema too, because he’s admitted to liking the Fast ad Furious movies, especially the original from 2001. Read More »
The Vin Diesel action film Bloodshot was one of the last big movies to debut in North American theaters before the coronavirus pandemic brought the entertainment industry to a standstill one thousand years ago. (That’s how long it’s been, right? Feels about that long.) But now, eight months after the first film was quickly shifted to VOD, the company behind it is moving forward with a sequel.
Yep, a new report says that Bloodshot 2 is officially in the works, and ol’ Vinny D is coming back for more. Read More »
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 »
Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, you won’t get to see Dominic Toretto and his high-speed crew back on the big screen and Fast and Furious 9 until next year.

Unfortunately, it does not feature Vin Diesel‘s recently released single. What’s that? You haven’t heard that Vin Diesel was making music? Prepare yourself. Read More »
