Last week, it was leaked and subsequently confirmed that Jason Statham was in deep negotiations to play the villain Bullseye on the upcoming season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. This news was probably the greatest moment of my whole life. Then not even 48 hours later, the talks broke down for whatever mystical Hollywood reason. Statham would not be playing the iconic villain of Bullseye, which was probably the saddest moment of my whole life, because we missed out on an opportunity to watch Statham be an action villain again.
The only thing better than Action Hero Jason Statham is Action Villain Jason Statham, and that’s a side of him that only 2 films have explored to date with 11 years between the two. We could have gotten up to Thirteen Whole Hours of Action Villain Jason Statham, and even more so on a show that had surprisingly great and excitingly choreographed action scenes. »

Just in case you somehow missed it, Furious 7 spent the weekend totally obliterating the international box office. It earned $384 million worldwide, in a single weekend. We already assumed that, even after the tragic death of star Paul Walker, more movies were on the way, and whenever Fast & Furious 8 drops, you can expect to see a familiar face. According to Umberto Gonzalez, the next installment in the supercharged action franchise may bring back Eva Mendes. Right now this is obviously just an unconfirmed rumor, so make sure to take it with a grain of salt, but the report indicates that whether or not Mendes returns could have a big impact the plot of the upcoming sequel. Mendes played undercover U.S. Customs Agent Monica Fuentes in 2 Fast 2 Furious, where she helps Brian O.Conner (Paul Walker) and Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) take down a ruthless drug kingpin (Cole Hauser). She »
I mentioned in my review of Furious 7 (read the review here) how 2 Fast 2 Furious just might be my favorite movie in the entire Fast franchise. In fact, I went so far as to write, "By the way, what's the deal with not bringing Eva Mendes back and isn't Carter Verone (Cole Hauser) out of jail yetc" Well, it appears I may have hit on something. readmore postid="172784" We already know Fast & Furious 8 will be heading to New York with Kurt Russell's character expected to return, but a new rumor from Latino-Review.com scooper El Mayimbe suggests the story will depend on whether or not they can get Eva Mendes back as U.S. Customs Agent Monica Fuentes. Mendes made a brief appearance in the Fast Five credits alongside Dwayne Johnson, but she hasn't been seen or heard from since. As far as my curiosity as to the whereabouts of 2 Fast villain Carter Verone, »

“Ride or die.” Those words only appear a few times in the franchise – most famously out of Vin Diesel’s gravelly baritone in Fast & Furious 6 – but they have become the personal motto for how this franchise has continued, grown, succeeded and become greater with each film. Today, Furious 7, the latest in the series will be released, and it’s a mark of achievement not only that they’ve made it to seven films, but that it only feels exciting for a seventh film about criminals racing cars to be released. The Fast and the Furious franchise is unlike any franchise out there right now, as it has evolved from perfectly adequate popcorn films about criminals racing cars to superb and exhilarating blockbuster action films. No other franchise can say that they only began to hit their creative stride with the fifth film. To understand how we arrived at this point though, »

Having chopped up the ratings with a 2014 movie, Lifetime shrewdly returns to the scene of the crime with “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles,” an eight-episode limited series whose success seems virtually assured on the strength of those blood-soaked billboards alone. Christina Ricci reprises her role as the notorious parent-slayer who became the subject of a children’s rhyme, now dealing with the aftermath of having been exonerated while still finding, ahem, permanent solutions to the impediments life throws her way. Joining series like “Hannibal” and “Bates Motel,” also built around antiheroes, “Lizzie” somewhat dubiously gives female psychopaths equal time.
Like the movie, the series derives some of its kick from the period, while giving Ricci a chance to play a role uniquely suited to those great big eyes of hers, offering the audience a chance to see what Wednesday Adams would look (and probably act) like all grown up.

What happens when our blockbusters become wholly self awarec The reality of the cinematic singularity has been alive and well for some time now with Marvel taking the bull by the horns with its Cinematic Universe of films and now the Fast & Furious franchise has fully consumed itself. The difference being, I guess, every installment in the Fast franchise has become The Avengers, it's a superhero team-up rather than settling for lackluster individual episodes in-between. Like 'em or not, the Fast movies are just that, they're movies, not installments or episodes. They can be hit and miss and, in the case of Furious 7, are now bumping up against becoming more "disaster porn" than ever before as Los Angeles is blown to bits and skyscrapers in Abu Dhabi (not to mention ancient artifacts) are vandalized by a $3.4 million sports car. But hey, you have to ratchet up the stakes somehow. »

Later on this week, the Fast and Furious franchise brings their seventh installment to the big screen with Furious 7. The sixth sequel in what is now a juggernaut of a series, we find things coming to a sort of fork in the road. Obviously, the death of Paul Walker has removed the long term dynamic of Vin Diesel and Walker leading the team, but the show goes on, as it were. The question that I had, as someone who only saw the first film and was more than a little surprised to see how the popularity of the series balloon, was just how this franchise became what it is today? For the few of you out there who aren’t familiar with the franchise, here’s a quick refresher now. The first film was The Fast and the Furious, directed by Rob Cohen and starring the group of Vin Diesel, »
