Warning: You'll Need to Take a Breather After Watching Scott Eastwood Swim in His Jeans in This Sexy Cologne Ad

6 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The world would probably judge anyone else who swims in their jeans, but when Scott Eastwood does it, it's oddly hot. The actor, who took over for the late Paul Walker as the new face of Davidoff's cologne earlier this year, stripped down to just his denim for its Cool Water commercial. The ad, which was revealed on Tuesday, shows Scott staring into the camera before diving off a cliff into the ocean's rough waves. "Before I even hit the water, I can feel it," Scott says in his smoldering voice. "This incredible rush of power running right through me. It makes the ocean. It makes the man." Scott, who is also a fan of working out in his jeans, couldn't be more excited about his new partnership. "The ocean has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember," he said in a statement in February, »

Are the 'Furious 7,' 'Pitch Perfect 2' soundtracks among the best ever?

31 May 2015 3:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Two recent soundtracks made big waves for pop music lovers this spring, but are they good enough to be among the all-time greatest? The " Furious 7" soundtrack hit No. 1 on the albums chart when was released in March, and yielded what may be among the Summer Songs of 2015: Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again," a Paul Walker tribute. "Pitch Perfect 2" hit the a-caperfect notes with fans of the first film, and its soundtrack similarly bowed at the top of the Billboard 200 late this month, giving the Barden Bellas another chance to enchant crowds (and composer/musician Mark Mothersbaugh another prime spot to show off his chops). These flicks are up against pretty fierce competition if they ever hope to be considered one of the best soundtracks of all time, however. Check out our most up-to-date list of the best collections. »

The best competitive kids on TV, including... a young Paul Walker?

28 May 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Get out your Oed, because the National Spelling Bee is back. Let's celebrate by revisiting some awesome competitive kids on TV. Get ready for an amazing Paul Walker cameo.  1. Rebecca Sealfon screams to victory in the 1997 National Spelling Bee Rebecca Sealfon owned the '97 National Spelling Bee when she correctly spelled "euonym." The delirium is so damn special and unforgettable. Sealfon has since denounced the Bee because she says it devastates losing contestants, and while I sympathize, I'm glad she gave us this one-of-a-kind moment. 2. Leonard Cooper decimates the "Jeopardy!" Teen Tournament with the greatest Final Jeopardy! ever. This is how you win a tournament. Leonard Cooper didn't know the answer to the World War II-themed Final Jeopardy! clue, so he just responded with, "Who is some guy in Normandy but I just won $75,000." Alex's response is perfect: "You did indeed!"  3. Remember when Paul Walker was on "I'm Telling"?  He certainly was. »

Vin Diesel is one of the most social media-savvy stars out there today – over the past few years, he’s used it to tease us with his involvement in superhero movies (he ultimately ended up voicing Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy), pay tribute to his co-star and friend Paul Walker in a touching musical performances and of course, plug the Fast & Furious franchise.

Now, even as Diesel and company are taking a well-deserved victory lap in the wake of Furious 7‘s smash success, he’s taking to Instagram to unveil a new teaser poster for Fast & Furious 8.

Fast & Furious 8: Vin Diesel Shares Promo Poster Teasing New Location

28 May 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This April’s Furious 7 is currently the fourth highest grossing movie of all time, with a worldwide take of $1.499 billion. Yes, you read that right. The seventh film in the Fast & Furious franchise is only bested by The Avengers, Titanic, and Avatar on the all-time worldwide chart, which I’m still having trouble wrapping my head around that fact. With this kind of take, it was no surprise that Universal Pictures quickly announced Fast & Furious 8 for release in 2017, and now star/producer/franchise godfather Vin Diesel has offered a tease of what fans can expect in the form of a promo poster. Revealed on his Instagram account (Diesel loves social media, natch), the unofficial promo poster offers a look at New York City with a hint of blood. Diesel and Co. have actually been teasing the NYC setting of Fast & Furious 8 for a while now, and the »

Vin Diesel Teases New York As Fast & Furious 8's Main Locale

28 May 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Fast & Furious 7 is still roaring away at the box office and the eighth instalment of the car-happy franchise has only just been announced. But it’s never too early for Vin Diesel to get the hype train rolling (and jumping its tracks, then slamming into reverse before driving through a mountain) for the new film, so he’s hit Instagram to offer a new tease.  #TorettoTuesdayA photo posted by Vin Diesel (@vindiesel) on May 26, 2015 at 12:26pm PDTYes, New York, New York, the city that never sleeps will probably have more trouble getting a good rest with Dom Toretto and the gang tearing through its streets. And if they can manage to pull off car chases in traffic-heavy cities such as London and Los Angeles, they should be fine in the Big Apple. But what could that blood splatter on the eight mean? While the original ending of Fast »

Is DC Comics About To Change Its Movie Schedule?

26 May 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The biggest problem with attempting to plan out a massive cinematic universe in the mold of Marvel is that you have no idea what changes could be on the horizon. Sony, for example, might send Spider-Man back to your universe. Or, if you are the Fast & Furious franchise, you might lose a cornerstone like Paul Walker. DC and Warner tried to catch up with Marvel and Disney recently by mapping out their movie plans through 2020, but comments by The Rock have us thinking that changes may be on the way. While out promoting his upcoming blockbuster San Andreas, the media savvy Rock has been fielding questions about Black Adam, the anti-hero that he.s expected to play opposite the Shazam movie that has been pegged for 2019. Except, when a reporter complained about having to wait that long to see the massive movie star assume the role, Dwayne Johnson clarified: No, »

Tove made headlines recently when she flashed her nipples to the audience during a performance at the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Al.

Just this week, actor Vin Diesel sang the song in a moving video posted to his Facebook page, and Tove covered the Paul Walker tribute "See You Again" during a visit to the BBC 1 "Live Lounge" last month.

The ever continuing process of healing...All love...Posted by Vin Diesel on Wednesday, May 20, 2015Vin Diesel's latest tribute to his late friend Paul Walker may be one of the most moving yet.

21 May 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Vin Diesel, human karaoke machine, has released his latest cover video, but this time it has a much more somber tone. "The ever continuing process of healing," he writes in the video's description. And what follows is an emotional cover of Tove Lo's "Habits," sung in front of a montage titled "Brotherhood," featuring clips of Vin and Paul Walker on various Fast and Furious sets. Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" is touching and all, but we really wish this had played over that Furious 7 closing scene instead. »

Dwayne Johnson confirms Hobbs will return in Fast & Furious 8

18 May 2015 6:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dwayne Johnson will be back for more Fast & Furious.

The actor has confirmed that his character Hobbs will appear in Fast & Furious 8, which is set for release on April 14, 2017.

Asked about his involvement, he said: "Of course. It can't go on without Hobbs!"

He joins Vin Diesel and Paul Walker's brother Cody in the next instalment, but it is not yet known if Michelle Rodriguez will return due to cast options expiring.

Meanwhile, Johnson has teased the possibility of a solo Hobbs film.

"We all are interested in it. I just had a big conversation with the studio. So we'll see," he said. "I still think for me personally we've created a little bit of space for him in 7 and the gauge is set for what the audience will want.

"That's my take on it, you know, but a lot of other people have to have input."

Dwayne Johnson Returning For Furious 8

18 May 2015 6:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite ending up a little worse for wear during this year’s Furious 7, Hobbs is ready to ride again for the recently greenlit Furious 8, actor Dwayne Johnson has confirmed.

During a Q&A for his upcoming summer tentpole San Andreas, Johnson, one of the most bankable actors working in Hollywood today, was asked whether or not he would be reprising his role in the next Fast & Furious entry, which will have to retool the franchise slightly now that stalwart Brian O’Conner (the late, lamented Paul Walker) has been given a touching send-off. Johnson replied, “Of course. It can’t go on without Hobbs.”

Well, there you have it. News of Johnson’s enthusiasm for Furious 8 surely comes as a relief to fans, given that Hobbs has secured a place as one of the franchise’s most popular characters since first appearing in Fast Five. Universal is »

If you haven't cried over the music video for Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" recently, perhaps a live performance will do the trick.

Dwayne Johnson Says Hobbs Will Be Back For Fast & Furious 8

17 May 2015 5:40 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

He only bodyslammed into the franchise with the fifth instalment, but it’s hard to imagine the Fast & Furious movies without Dwayne Johnson’s imposing Interpol officer Luke Hobbs. So it should come as little surprise to learn that, following the announcement that an eighth entry is in development, the artist also known as The Rock has confirmed that he’ll be back for more action.Asked whether Hobbs will be on duty for the movie at the San Andreas press junket this weekend, Johnson answered in his inimitable style: “Of course. It can’t go on without Hobbs.” But what we really want to know is whether the schedule will allow him to show up for more than a couple of scenes this time. Fast & Furious 7 was affected by the death of Paul Walker, which meant a production shutdown and a timing shift, so there was less Hobbs to be found. »
