So does this mean there will be some high-kicking fun in James Wan’s “Fast and Furious 7″? That seems pretty likely, giving this is the training video Vin Diesel just posted on his Facebook page. The man has over 49 million fans, and slowly heading towards 50 million, did you know that? Damn. Thems lotsa fans. Anyhoo. Diesel has posted this latest video, showing him and Thai action star Tony Jaa doing some crazy high-flying kicks and training. Does this mean there will be a scene between the two men? Quite possibly. Jaa was added to the movie a while back, but we have no idea what kind of role it is. Probably as one of bad guy Jason Statham’s henchmen, I’m guessing, similar to Joe Taslim in the last movie. By the way, the franchise is such a juggernaut now, that I don’t think they’re even going to waste time with subtitles. »

Vin Diesel has been teasing a role in an upcoming Marvel movie for a long time now. Just today, he all-but-confirmed to EW the rumors that he was voicing a character in one of the superhero-studio’s movies — probably Guardians of the Galaxy, probably Groot. This may be surprising, but it’s actually simply the next phase in an ongoing evolutionary process that dates back to the dawn of the new century. You see, way back in 2000 2001, Vin Diesel headlined The Fast and the Furious, a movie about fast cars and the furious people who drive fastly. Diesel left; in respone, »

Jaa will star as a henchman to Jason Statham's villain in the car heist drama. This marks Jaa's English-language debut.
It's likely the role will be similar to Indonesian action star Joe Taslim's part in the sixth film.
In an email, Jaa says: "I have been a big fan of the Fast and Furious franchise. The films are fast-paced, fun and keep the audience involved. There is a great mix of humour and action, something I really appreciate. There is no better film to be involved in for a first Us studio production.

Fast & Furious 6 cars, Star Trek into Darkness spaceship pass $200 million milestone at North America box office According to weekend box-office studio estimates released Sunday morning (June 9), two blockbusters passed the $200 million milestone in North America this past weekend: Justin Lin’s actioner Fast & Furious 6, starring fast and furious cars, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, and Vin Diesel, and J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek into Darkness, starring the star-trekking spaceship Enterprise, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Benedict Cumberbatch. However, box-office actuals released on Monday revealed that Star Trek into Darkness studio Paramount had been a bit too optimistic. (Photo: one of the Fast & Furious 6 cars, with Vin Diesel at the wheel.) At no. 2 this past weekend, Fast & Furious 6 added $19.62 million (down 44%), cuming at $202.81 million according to figures found at Box Office Mojo.

The first three films in the Fast & Furious franchise had almost nothing to do with each other. Cars were driven quickly, usually by radically different groups of people. In a weird twist, the next three Fast movies suddenly became rigidly focused on continuity, uniting the disparate Fast casts into a big old-fashioned Super Adventure Squad. At the same time, the franchise also added in Dwayne Johnson (a.k.a. The Rock), who brought his own action-star flavor to the series. Well, the conclusion of Fast & Furious 6 — Spoiler Alert, natch — features the franchise’s neatest continuity trick yet, while also introducing »

Fast & Furious 6 weekend box office: Biggest Fast and Furious domestic opening ever? (Photo: Dwayne Johnson in Fast & Furious 6) Fast & Furious 6 will easily top Memorial Day weekend at the North American box office. According to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo, the Justin Lin-directed action thriller featuring Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, and Jordana Brewster earned $38.2 million at 3,658 locations on Friday — including $6.5 million from 2,409 late Thursday and midnight screenings. Fast & Furious 6 vs. Fast Five Reportedly budgeted at $160 million, Universal’s Fast & Furious 6 will in all likelihood boast the biggest opening weekend ever of any Fast and Furious movie. In its first three days out in late April 2011, Fast Five scored $86.19 million at 3,644 locations. Fast & Furious 6 could easily reach $92-95 million and possibly go as high as $100+ million by Sunday evening. For the four-day haul, Fast & Furious 6 could score $120 million. Is Fast & Furious 6 on its way to becoming a major blockbuster? »

Fast & Furious 6 box office: Best opening ever of a Fast and Furious movie? (Photo: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker in Fast & Furious 6) Fast & Furious 6 will easily top the North American box office on Friday, May 24. According to very early, very rough estimates found at Deadline.com, the Justin Lin-directed action thriller starring Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, and Vin Diesel, should collect $35 million at 3,658 locations — including $6.5 million from late Thursday and midnight screenings. For comparison’s sake: Fast Five, which opened in late April 2011, earned $3.8 million at midnight screenings. (Check out: Fast & Furious 6 Memorial Day Weekend Box Office: $120 Million?) Oh, but wait. Fast & Furious 6 had the advantage of late-Thursday, pre-midnight screenings, and although the latest Fast and Furious movie is clearly ahead of its predecessor, we’re comparing melons and watermelons here. That’s much like claiming that Fast & Furious 6 will have by far the biggest opening ever of a Fast and Furious »

There are plenty of traditions associated with Memorial Day: barbecues, the return of white pants, massive sales, and, of course, the release of long-awaited blockbuster flicks. We get two this weekend, both hailing from impressively resilient franchises. Plus, there's the highly anticipated next chapter in the "Before [insert time of day]" series. But maybe you're not a sequel person, in which case you can indulge in a 3D animated feature for the kiddies (in all of us), probing documentaries, dark comedies, and a biopic. Because what's more American than variety? Happy Memorial Day, cinephiles: let us know how you'll be celebrating at the theaters! "Fast & Furious 6." Directed by Justin Lin. Starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Gina Carano, Luke Evans, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Gal Gadot, Joe Taslim, and Shea Whigham.

With the film already in cinemas on our shores, a great new 60-second UK TV spot has been released, teasing some of the brilliant action you can expect from what promises to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the year.
Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian’s (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.

An assortment of news rolling in from Cannes like the waves on the beach (see what we did there?) Anyway, "The Raid" helmer Gareth Evans is currently in production on his most-likely bone-crunching follow-up "Berandal," and while he's got some Hollywood projects in development, he isn't going to be abandoning Indonesian martial-arts pictures altogether; Screen Daily report that the Welsh ex-pat will serve as action director on "The Night Comes For Us," a vehicle for "The Raid" vet, and "Fast & Furious 6" stand out Joe Taslim. The film will see Taslim as a Triad enforcer who accidentally causes a massacre, and will be properly directed by Timo Tjahjanto. Screen Daily also report that James Marsh, the man behind the sublime "Man On Wire," the excellent "Red Riding" and the 'yeah, it's ok I guess' "Shadow Dancer," is lining up another project.

My horror adventures always take me to such interesting places, so I suppose it was only a matter of time before I ended up in an old WWII Japanese underground bunker found in the wilds of Indonesia. Go hunting for Yamashita’s Gold they said. It’ll be totally safe they said. Well what they didn’t say was mutated science experiments still inhabit the mine who aren’t too keen on accepting visitors. Damn, the treasure hunting game sure is getting dangerous these days, but it’s not that unexpected as Dead Mine is just another “greedy young dick leads a crack team of specialists into a dangerous location looking for riches but instead finds evil monsters who don’t take kindly to their presence” film. You know, the usual.
