10 Most Twisted Quentin Tarantino Movie Characters

3 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

When it comes to portraying aberrant psychology on the screen, it’s all too easy to create a cartoon villain with a checklist of traits instead of any real personality. And many filmmakers have. Take a bit of Hannibal Lecter, add a dash of generic Bond villain and – presto! – you’ve got a bland and anonymous antagonist.

As a disciple of Elmore Leonard, Quentin Tarantino isn’t having any of that. Like Leonard, he knows the importance of character, and the best way to reveal character is through dialogue. The person in question might be a hitman, and a sadist to boot, but he won’t do anything until we’ve heard him speak.

In twenty years and eight movies, as well as three pictures he wrote but didn’t direct, Tarantino has created a rogues gallery that’s the envy of most crime novelists, never mind his fellow filmmakers. »

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See Furious 7

25 March 2015 1:43 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It took me a while to get on board with the Fast & Furious franchise, but after the last couple of films, I am buckled in and ready to drive out the back of a plane. Furious 7 had a difficult production to say the least, and it will likely be an emotional film due to the death of Paul Walker. However, that doesn’t mean the film also won’t be the enjoyable blockbuster, and it pulled it ecstatic buzz when it premiered at SXSW (click here for Perri’s review). I know I’m ready for another ride. I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 admit-two passes to an early screening of Furious 7. To enter for a chance to win, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “Furious 7”.  The screening is on Tuesday, March 31st at Regal Atlantic Station at 7:00Pm, »

'Furious 7': Learn How Weta Created a Digital Paul Walker

25 March 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Furious 7 hits theaters next weekend, it will be the last time the late Paul Walker will ever be seen on the big screen. The actor passed away in November 2013, while on a brief Thanksgiving hiatus from shooting Furious 7, which lead to the production shutting down for several months, not only for the actors to mourn their friend, but for the filmmakers to figure out how to give him a proper send-off. We reported last April that the actor's brothers, Cody Walker and Caleb Walker, served as stand-ins for Paul when production resumed, but now we have new details about how visual effects artists re-created the late actor.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Peter Jackson's Weta Digital effects house took unused footage from previous Fast and Furious movies to re-create a digital version of Paul Walker for the rest of the Furious 7 production. The process is »

'Furious 7' Featurettes Explore Origins, Cars & Locations

25 March 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Vin Diesel and several other cast members take us back to the origins of the Fast and Furious franchise in one of three new featurettes for Furious 7. What you may not remember is the original 2001 action-thriller The Fast and the Furious is actually based on a 1998 Vibe magazine article entitled Racer X (clickHere to read the full article) that focused on the New York street racing scene. From those humble roots, a blockbuster franchise was born.

The second featurette showcases one of the most exotic cars in the entire franchise, the Lykan Hypersport, a car that sells for $3.4 million, since only seven of them were ever made. This is the same car that is shown in the trailers and TV spots, when Vin Diesel's Dom literally jumps from building to building behind the wheel. Car supervisor Dennis McCarthy reveals that this car is the most expensive ever used in the entire franchise. »

A Look at the $3.4 Million Car Used in Best Picture Winner 'Furious 7'

25 March 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you want to win Best Picture at the Oscars it's good to have a variety of stories to tell. Yesterday we learned Vin Diesel believes Furious 7 pretty much has Best Picture at the 2016 Oscars all locked up and one story he'll be able to recount was that time they featured a $3.4 million car as it drove out the window of a skyscraper. The car is the W Motors Lykan, there are only seven of them in the world and should you have the ducats to purchase one you'll be able to decide between using rubies and diamonds embedded in the headlights as well as the option of integrating rubies, diamonds, yellow diamonds or sapphires into the vehicle at purchase. This is the first car to have diamonds in the headlights, which are made up of titanium Led blades with 420, 15 karat diamonds. Want morec Check out the Furious 7 »

Watch: Get In The Last Word With This Supercut Of Cinematic One-Liners

24 March 2015 3:05 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

What do Simon Pegg and Clint Eastwood have in common, other than handsome looks? Both actors have had the pleasure and privilege of saying something cool and clever before knocking off a bad guy. A new supercut from Plot Point Productions — via Live For Films — serves up the cool pre-mortem lines in a nice digestible five-minute chunk. Split into two halves, the supercut gives equal weight to both the line spouted by the heroes and the carnage that happens directly after. Some actors show up multiple times, like Kurt Russell and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and even a filmmaker like Christopher Nolan has two entries on the list. It goes to show you that no matter how cerebral you are, it’s hard to escape the allure of saying something cool right before killing off a villain. Watch “Supercut: The Pre-Mortem One-Liner” below and let us know what your second-favorite one-liner is, »

Fast & Furious 7 review: Series bids emotional farewell to Paul Walker

24 March 2015 4:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: James Wan; Screenwriter: Chris Morgan; Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Lucas Black; Running time: 137 mins; Certificate: 15

From small beginnings as a plucky street racing drama, the Fast & Furious series has transformed itself into a juggernaut tentpole franchise that delivers jaw-dropping vehicular carnage and testosterone-soaked fist fights. Cast members aside, the Fast movies of recent years bear little resemblance to the early outings.

It wasn't until the arrival of Dwayne Johnson in 2011's Fast Five that the films really found their feet - now they're competing for serious box office bucks with the likes of Marvel and Transformers. In short, the Fast franchise now produces the kind of action movies you wished The Expendables would.

Picking up straight where Fast & Furious 6 left off, the storyline this time around is driven by Deckard Shaw's (Jason Statham »

Fast & Furious 7 review

24 March 2015 2:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

High-octane sequel Fast & Furious 7 satisfies as an action film and a moving send-off for the late Paul Walker, Ryan writes...

Fifteen years ago, a magazine article about illegal street racing left a producer with dollar signs in his eyes, and the result was the trashily entertaining The Fast & The Furious - a high-speed reworking of Point Break with a title taken from an old Roger Corman movie (director Rob Cohen got the title from Corman in exchange for a few reels of stock footage).

That Universal now has such a huge franchise on its hands is no small thanks to director Justin Lin, who managed to take the series from its increasingly niche street racing roots and into new, colossally over-the-top action territory with Fast Five. But Fast & Furious 7 sees Lin replaced by a new director, James Wan - a filmmaker more closely associated with his Saw films than high-octane stunts. »

Ludacris And Vin Diesel Take You Behind-The-Scenes of Furious 7 In New Featurettes

23 March 2015 6:27 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Director James Wan’s Furious 7 opens in less than two weeks and fans of the franchise can’t wait for the latest chapter of the franchise.

“Ticket pre-sales have been robust, with Fandango reporting that Furious 7 is outpacing the sixth “Fast & Furious” film at a similar point in its sales cycle, and MovieTickets.com saying the new film’s reservations are three times that of its predecessor,” according to Variety. Estimates have the film at $115 million at the box office when it debuts on April 3rd.

The sleeper summer hit of 2001 racked up $207 million at the worldwide box office. Over the course of six films that have successively stoked passion in an ever-expanding, die-hard audience and an astounding $2.4 billion in receipts, Universal Pictures’ record-smashing homegrown franchise has become the studio’s most-profitable and longest-running. Impressively, on social media platforms, fan following for the movies and cast has grown »
