From the arrival of cinema and a train steaming into La Ciotat Station cinema audiences have long been in love with both the fast and the furious. The adage ‘the car’s the star’ has long been evident in Hollywood’s annals with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Herbie, the Batmobile or the family of Minis (Minions?) in The Italian Job taking centre stage and linger in the memory.
In association with the people from Van Monster we stood atop our internet tower and gazed at the past, then plucked five of the most iconic vehicles to appear in movies.
5) 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
As featured in: Smokey And The Bandit (1977)
Registration plate: Ban One

Is it just me or are the MTV Movie Awards trying to be a little more respectable? Yeah, stuff like "Identity Thief" and "We're the Millers" picked up multiple nominations this morning, but prestige Oscar players "American Hustle" and "The Wolf of Wall Street" led the field with eight each, besting even "The Hunger Games." And Best Picture Oscar winner "12 Years a Slave" is in there for Movie of the Year. Color me surprised, that's all. No, no one around here is taking the MTV Movie Awards too seriously. I find myself endlessly fascinated by them, though, as a marker for, I don't know, youth progression? The "Twilight" years are thankfully behind us and we can all be happy for that (and boy was it a s**t-show for fans of that franchise when the final installment was mostly snubbed last year). The "Hunger Games" era doesn't seem to be so oppressive, »

Of course, he'll have to go through Matthew McConaughey again, who's up for Dallas Buyers Club – the role he just won an Oscar for – though if DiCaprio plays his cards right he might pick up Best Shirtless Performance.

"Never throw down with Mema when peaches are involved." — Mema
Our hit reality series Hollywood Hillbillies follows internet sensation Michael "The Angry Ginger" Kittrell, his Mema and other kin as they attempt to navigate the shark-infested waters of Los Angeles, their down-home Georgia sensibilities constantly at odds with Hollyweird culture. Kittrell may be the most rural Georgian to make the long trek to Tinsel Town in pursuit of fame, but he's certainly not the first; many of the hottest actors and actresses of yesterday and today hail from the Peach State, from the Pretty Woman to the Terminator (1000, that is). We've put together a list of the most famous actors and actresses from Georgia and now it's up to you to rate your favorites.

Cameron Crowe is an absolute favourite of mine but he still doesn’t have a title for his new film starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, although, maybe it’ll just become Untitled for some clever marketing reason? No? We don’t know either.
Anyway, the Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire director has also plucked the talents of John Krasinski, Danny McBride, Rachel McAdams, Jay Baruchel, Alec Baldwin, Michael Chernus and Ivana Milicevic for his Hawaii-based narrative, and Bill Murray was also previously rumoured. All we know so far is that Cooper plays a contractor named Brian Gilcrest who lives on the island and ends up working with Emma Stone – an Air Force pilot of some sorts and maybe called Ng – to stop a weapons satellite. We also know that they might well have a bit of a past and a connection to Jack Johnson and the Dharma Initiative. Those »

It's been a while since we've heard anything about The Weinstein Company's planned Knight Rider movie, but now a new casting rumour has surfaced from Schmoes Know claiming that both Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation, The Lego Movie) and Danny McBride (Despicable Me, This Is the End) have both received offers to star in the film.
The site goes on to speculate that Chris Pratt is up for the role of Michael Knight, made famous of course by David Hasselhoff in the classic 80s TV series, while McBride could be set to voice K.I.T.T., Knight Industries' trusty artifical intelligence. If true, it would be another major leading role for Pratt, who's set to follow August's Guardians of the Galaxy with the Jurassic Park sequel Jurassic World next year.
Are you looking forward to the return of Michael Knight and K.I.T.T., and if so what »

After a years-long stint in development hell, award-winning director Cameron Crowe’s latest film is finally getting ready to reveal itself to the world.
The currently untitled project – which initially bore the moniker of Deep Tiki – is a Hawaii-set romantic comedy starring Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) as a defense contractor sent to the “Aloha State” to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite. While there, Cooper’s character falls for a beautiful Air Force pilot played by Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man).

In other release date news, Sacha Baron Cohen's action comedy "Grimsby" about a 007-style spy on the run with a moronic soccer hooligan who is also his long-lost brother, has scored a July 31st 2015 release.
Sony Pictures is now handling distribution, taking over from Paramount where it was initially developed. »

Each year, studios like to cram their best offerings into the Christmas season, and 2014 is shaping up to be no different. With "The Hobbit: There And Back Again," Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken," Ridley Scott's "Exodus," the star-studded musical "Into The Woods" and more, all coming within weeks of each other, another film has entered the fray. Sony has dated Cameron Crowe's still-untitled next movie for Christmas Day, where it will face off against Disney's musical and Jolie's WWII flick. Starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Alec Baldwin, the film will tell the wacky story of a military contractor (Cooper) on a top secret military launch mission assignment in Hawaii who teams with an Air Force pilot (Stone) to kibosh the operation. This star power plus a screwball setup looks like a match made in heaven, and Columbia Pictures certainly think so. »

Writer/director Cameron Crowe’s untitled next film will serve as a nifty Christmas Present this year. Sony Pictures has slated the untitled picture for release on December 25, 2014, where it will square off against Disney’s musical Into the Woods, the comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2, and director Angelina Jolie’s war drama Unbroken. Crowe’s picture is described as a romantic comedy and stars Bradley Cooper as a defense contractor overseeing a weapons satellite launch from Hawaii who teams up with (and falls for) an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone) to scuttle the launch. The very solid ensemble cast is filled out by Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin, Rachel McAdams, and Danny McBride. Crowe’s last directorial effort, 2011’s We Bought a Zoo, also opened on Christmas Day, and I’m eager to see what the filmmaker has cooked up this time around. »
