It took a half-hour or so for me to get over my comic bias and accept Matthew Vaughn.s Kick-Ass for what it was: the violent, expletive-laden stepchild of a really solid vigilante tale, and a pretty exciting ride through and through, especially since it contained one of Nic Cage.s most legitimately enjoyable roles of the past decade. And honestly, I.m pretty sure the above clip from Jeff Wadlow.s Kick-Ass 2, courtesy of Movieweb, got me just as excited as anything from that first film. The fact that it brings to mind Kinka Usher.s Mystery Men may have something to do with it. Ten eye gouges full of kudos to Universal for dropping a clip that seems to be at a highly pivotal point in the movie, with Dave .Kick-Ass. Lzewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Mindy .Hit-Girl.

Bits and pieces of this scene (involving the lair of Mother F’er) are shown in the trailer but it’s your call whether or not you want to see the (nearly) full scene out of context. To be fair, it’s not a Major spoiler, but it does raise some questions…
Check it out below if you don’t mind watching a scene that likely belongs in the middle or near the end of the movie.
The film directed and written by Jeff Wadlow will hit theaters on August 16, 2013.

The first clip from Jeff Wadlow's Kick-Ass 2 is now online. While I'm surprised that this massive fight scene between costumed heroes and villains is the first clip we're getting, I'm not complaining! Some of our old favorites are back but there is a host of new characters on both sides of the battle. Battle Guy, Night Bitch and Doctor Gravity get in on the action and it's not just Kick-Ass and The Mother Fucker who square off. Hit-Girl takes on a big challenge when she goes up against Mother Russia by herself. Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Clark Duke, Donald Faison, John Leguizamo, Jim Carrey and Olga Kurkulina, Kick-Ass 2 opens August 16th.

Bates Motel, Season 1, Episode 5: “Ocean View”
Written by Jeff Wadlow
Directed by David Straiton
Airs Mondays at 10pm Et on A&E
In this week’s episode, “Ocean View,” Norma shows more of her bitchy side, Dylan finds himself caught in the middle of a shooting, and Norman and Emma find clues that lead to a major discovery. For an episode so jam-packed with twists and turns, the highlight, as always with Bates Motel, rests on the way Norma manipulates Norman’s adolescent feelings. Recalling the pilot, Norman tells his mother, “We’re like two peas in a pod, there’s a cord between our hearts and we share the same blood.” Not much as changed since, and their relationship becomes increasingly more toxic, »
Man, it seems like only three days ago that we were discussing possible directors for "Fast & Furious 7" now that "Fast & Furious 6" auteur Justin Lin has decided to bow out, with most of the speculation centering on the trio of Harald Zwart, Brad Furman and Jeff Wadlow.
But a lot can apparently change in the course of 72 hours, because according to Deadline, it turns out that James Wan is actually Universal's pick.
We sure never "Saw" that one coming!
Okay, okay, so that was a lame joke. Hey, it's what we do best. But choosing Wan, who is best known for directing horror films like "Saw" and "Insidious," is definitely a bold move considering the almost completely horror-freeness of the "Fast & Furious" franchise. Will Wan's style translate to the high octane action sensibility of "Fast & Furious?"
Lin seems to think so anyway.
"I'm extremely proud to be part of the 'Fast' franchise, »

From atop, where the road curves around the bend and in view of a glimmering sea, “The Fast and the Furious” franchise is the dominant force in serving the public with visions of automotive mayhem. The continuous unbroken chain in the saga will be resuming with its sixth installment, but now director Justin Lin will be leaving the successful franchise. So, it’s up to the next director to keep the fuel-injected momentum going.
Universal Studios already has someone it wants at the helm of the seventh installment in the “Fast and Furious” line. Horror direct James Wan seems next in line for this lucrative job. The deal to put him in place is rumored to be in the works and finalized by the end of the week. Wan is familiar with long franchises such as the “Saw” movies and will be working on the sequel to his own “Insidious. »

Justin Lin might not be returning for "Fast and Furious 7," but he's signed off on the director he's happy to see at the movie's helm. It's being reported that "Insidious" director James Wan will sign a deal to helm the movie by the end of this week, and Lin has giving him a big endorsement.
"I’m extremely proud to be part of the 'Fast' franchise, it is an experience I will always treasure," Lin said in a statement to Deadline. "It’s time for me to move on to other things and I’m thrilled that Universal and Neal have selected James Wan to lead the franchise into its new chapter."
Wan cut his teeth on the first "Saw" movie, and went on to direct movies like "Insidious" and the upcoming horror movie "The Conjuring" (which looks awesome, by the way). He's currently in post-production on "Insidious Chapter 2" and, »

After having Taiwanese director Justin Lin take on the last four films in the Fast & Furious franchise, including this summer's Fast & Furious 6, Universal is looking to Malaysia for their next director. Deadline has word that Insidious and Saw director James Wan is currently in negotiations to take on the sequel Fast & Furious 7, which Lin recently decided that he was not going to direct, mostly because it was being fast-tracked so quickly. This comes after the studio talked to directors Baltazar Kormakur (of the upcoming 2 Guns), Jeff Wadlow (of this summer's Kick-Ass 2) and Karate Kid remake helmer Harold Zwart. Read on! Wan is an interesting choice considering he hasn't directed the kind of big action fans expect from the Fast & Furious franchise, but he has been a hit at the box office after making films with relatively low budgets. Insidious and Saw are his biggest successes and while one became a long-running franchise, »

Justin Lin, the David Yates of the "Fast and Furious" franchise, having directed the last four films in the series (Yates did four tours of duty himself for "Harry Potter"), is not returning for "Fast and Furious 7." (Yes, there's a "Fast and Furious 7.") So, on the eve of the release of "Fast and Furious 6," who will help Universal get that next film into racing shape for summer of 2014? According to Deadline.com, "Saw" director James Wan.
Wan is a surprise choice for the studio, as he's previously worked on horror films like the aforementioned "Saw," "Insidious," and the upcoming twosome of "The Conjuring" and "Insidious: Chapter 2." Per Deadline.com, Wan beat out other directors for the "Fast 7" job, including two names previously mentioned by Latino Review as contenders: Jeff Wadlow (who directed "Kick-Ass 2" for the studio) and Harold Zwart ("The Karate Kid" remake). "2 Guns" director Baltazar Kormakur was also reportedly discussed for the gig, »

Just last week it was announced that Justin Lin would not be returning to direct Fast & Furious 7. Now, Universal have selected horror maestro James Wan as their ideal candidate for the job. Wan has entered discussion with the studio to jump aboard, with talks expected to confirm his duties by the end of this week. One of the hottest franchises in Hollywood, the films have become big buck earners for all involved…as long as you can keep up with the pace.
Lin’s departure was announced after the studio made the decision to start shooting the next installment this Summer with the hopes of a Summer 2014 release. The director felt that the proposed schedule would be too rushed and so he dropped out. Besides, after helming four Fast And The Furious movies, it’s not a surprise that Lin is seeking newer pastures.
The studio’s announced shortlist earlier »

Yes, there's going to be another one. And despite directing the last four installments, and taking the series in it's current heist movie direction, Justin Lin has declined to return for Fast And Furious 7, leaving Universal on the look out for a replacement for their biggest franchise. Jeff Wadlow (Kick Ass 2, Never Back Down), Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband), and Harold Zwart (The Karate Kid remake) were all approached, but, according to Deadline, James Wan is expected to sign a deal by the end of the week. If the deal goes through, he will be an interesting choice as this will be serious departure from his previous films Saw, Insidious, and the upcoming The Conjuring. Personally, I think he is a great choice, and if he can turn his knack for creating genuine scares to conjuring insane action sequences (though he is going to be hard pressed at topping pulling a cargo »

After Justin Lin officially decided not to direct Fast And Furious 7 several names surfaced as potential replacements such as Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband), Jeff Wadlow (Kick-ass 2), and Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer). Universal has decided not to go with any of those directors and their selection is a little outside of the box. Deadline is reporting that James Wan and Universal Pictures are in talks to bring the director on board for the seventh film in the franchise. The two sides are »
