From the creators of Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet The Spartans and more, comes the hilarious comedy spoof of the mega-popular The Fast and the Furious franchise, Superfast! – released on DVD and On Demand on Monday 30th March 2015; and we have 3 copies to giveaway on DVD!
This laugh-a-minute spoof centres around a not particularly smart or streetwise undercover cop, Lucas White (Alex Ashbaugh), who’s never driven a manual car before, but somehow still manages to infiltrate Vin Serento’s (Dale Pavinski) La gang of illegal street racers. They are Superfast! and they are a little furious; watch as they plot to double-cross La crime kingpin, Juan Carlos de la Sol (Omar Chaparro), who hides his cash in Big Ass Tacos establishment downtown. The gang’s outrageous plan is as daring as it is ridiculous and will see them towing the whole damn restaurant at crazy speeds.
Along for the Superfast! »

Vin Diesel and several other cast members take us back to the origins of the Fast and Furious franchise in one of three new featurettes for Furious 7. What you may not remember is the original 2001 action-thriller The Fast and the Furious is actually based on a 1998 Vibe magazine article entitled Racer X (clickHere to read the full article) that focused on the New York street racing scene. From those humble roots, a blockbuster franchise was born.
The second featurette showcases one of the most exotic cars in the entire franchise, the Lykan Hypersport, a car that sells for $3.4 million, since only seven of them were ever made. This is the same car that is shown in the trailers and TV spots, when Vin Diesel's Dom literally jumps from building to building behind the wheel. Car supervisor Dennis McCarthy reveals that this car is the most expensive ever used in the entire franchise. »
For this week’s cover story, Variety sat down with Vin Diesel for a lengthy interview in Los Angeles about “Furious 7.” In this exclusive video, Diesel offers seven secrets about his life and “The Fast and the Furious” franchise — including how he felt about the script for the 2001 original, the fastest he’s ever driven and what he thinks about the latest movie, which memorializes his friend Paul Walker.
“Coming from New York theater, I was very particular about scripts and expected them all to be works of creation,” he says in regards to the first “Fast and Furious” script. “And I had a meeting with them and said we have to make this script a whole lot better.”
For more about Diesel and “Furious 7,” which opens on April 3, check out our cover story.

Since 2001’s “Fast and The Furious,” Michelle Rodriguez has played Letty Ortiz, the girlfriend of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) who pulls double duty as a speed racer and mechanic. As part of this week’s cover story on “Furious 7,” Rodriguez spoke to Variety about how she almost walked off the set of the first film, why Diesel and Paul Walker became close friends and if there will be more “Fast and Furious” sequels.
How did you first meet Vin?
It met him on set of the first movie, actually. It was his fault I was in the movie. He saw my indie film “Girlfight,” and requested me to play his girlfriend in “The Fast and the Furious.” They read me in New York, and I got cast right away.
I heard at the table read at Universal Studios, Vin had a lot of suggestions to improve the script.

Like many of you, I wasn’t fully won over by The Fast And The Furious franchise until Fast Five; a film which was completely ridiculous but also an incredible amount of fun. Fast & Furious 6 didn’t quite reach the heights of Fast Five for me, but there was enough off the walls action to keep my enthusiasm for the series going. Everything we’ve seen from Furious 7 thus far leads me to believe that we’ll be getting another great installment of »

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.
John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately. He might not be known as being the most heavyweight of actors but you have to admit the man knows how to make an entertaining movie, and he’s not bad to look at. Even if everything else about the film is terrible or ridiculously over the top, Keanu is always awesome – Jonnhy Mnemonic and Chain Reaction would be nothing without him.
Every Friday between now and the release of John Wick on 10th April, »

I don’t have friends. I got family.
These seven words have come to exemplify the very heart of the Fast & Furious franchise, both for the faithful team of characters on screen and the band of actors, filmmakers and crew who have grown as tight as any bloodline over the course of seven movies together. At its outset, 15 years ago, no one could have foreseen that the destiny of this story about a team of street racers in East L.A. would transform into one of the most popular and enduring motion-picture serials of all time.
Now, Furious 7 arrives as the crowning achievement in this ongoing saga—the best, biggest and most fulfilling Fast & Furious movie yet. For every person in the Fast & Furious family—those on screen, those behind the camera and those who count themselves among its vast and varied fans around the world: This one is special. »

The roasts on Comedy Central are designed to push the envelope - but not this far. The cable network has decided to cut references to the late Paul Walker of The Fast and the Furious fame in its upcoming Justin Bieber roast after jokes about the deceased actor were met with audible groans. During the taping Saturday, roast veteran Jeff Ross made a reference to the "Move Bitch" song by Ludacris, who also participated in the roast, by saying, " 'Move bitch, get out of the way' is what Paul Walker should've told that tree. Too soon? Too fast? Too furious? »

Michelle Rodriguez is clarifying her comments about minorities playing traditionally white superhero characters. Hours after “The Fast and the Furious” actress slammed Hollywood for casting actors of color in roles originally conceived as white, she issued an apology. “I stuck my foot in my mouth once again,” Rodriguez said in a video posted on her Facebook page. “I have a tendency to speak without a filter, sorry about that.” Also Read: Michael B.

She sings, she dances, she's on the American Idol judging panel and, on the odd occasion, she acts. Considering the super-busy Jennifer Lopez only makes a film once every couple of years (her last screen outing was 2013's second-tier Statham vehicle Parker), you'd think she'd be a little more discerning in her choice of roles. After watching the abysmal Boy Next Door, that red-hot breakthrough in Out of Sight feels firmly out of mind.
Her latest has aspirations to be the kind of slick and stylish adult thriller popularised in the '80s and '90s, but ends up imploding thanks to a clunky script, off-key performances and a tone that swings wildly between ultra-serious and camp comedy. If Gone Girl was the perfect example of how to make »
Congratulations are in order for Vin Diesel and his girlfriend! The Fast and the Furious actor is expecting his third child with model Paloma Jiménez. The stars already have two kids, 4-year-old Vincent Sinclair and 6-year-old Hania Riley. In a previous interview, the private dad opened up about his daughter's birth and said that his costar Paul Walker encouraged him to be in the delivery room: "I say to Paul, 'You know, should I be in the delivery room, or how's that going to work?' And he says, 'You know, so many guys will tell you, "Don't do it. . . . You can't stomach it. . . . You'll never look at the girl the same," [but] it's the best thing you'll ever do in your life.'" Vin will definitely be an entertaining dad to his third child. After all, he can serenade anyone and pull off some awesome dance moves to Beyoncé. Congrats to the happy couple! »
Joseph Kahn is one of the most accomplished and ambitious directors working in the music video and TV commercial industries. To date, he’s also made two feature films, with extremely different results. The first of those pictures, Torque, is almost an art object, the result of a filmmaker who isn’t interested in popcorn spectacle making the most ridiculous motorbike action movie you can imagine. It might well be to The Fast and the Furious what Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain is to a urinal.
And then there’s Detention, a film Kahn made ‘outside of the system.’ It’s a teen time travel horror movie – sort of. It’s also a head-first dive into pop culture ephemera. I’ve seen Detention at least a half dozen times in the last three or four years, and now I’m writing about it, I’m tempted to go get the Blu-ray »

Talk about a change in momentum! For months, 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot seemed dead in the water — in no small part because the studio had given us almost no information about it. After all, we’ve been trained to follow superhero-movie publicity cycles that offer a steady drip of tantalizing details and images as much as a year before the flicks hit screens. The Fantastic Four (complete with a definite article, à la The Fast and the Furious or The Wolverine), by contrast, had spawned almost no confirmed and fleshed-out details since its casting announcements. We were left with vicious rumors about a troubled production plagued by clashes with the studio and riddled with questionable plot choices. (Dr. Doom being some kind of hacker? Hoo, boy.) But our information drought abruptly came to an end last night, and now we’re flooded with details, footage, and ideas »

Title: The Boy Next Door Director: Rob Cohen (‘The Fast and the Furious’) Starring: Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, Ian Nelson, John Corbett and Kristin Chenoweth The initial observations into a person’s seemingly well-meaning actions and decisions can be deceivingly unreliable, as people can often be skillfully hiding the actual motivations behind their true intentions and feelings. The new independent thriller, ‘The Boy Next Door,’ intriguingly sets out to prove that first impressions aren’t always the right ones, as people often harbor darker secrets and intentions as they strive to achieve their true ambitions. The film, which was directed by ‘The Fast and the Furious’ helmer Rob Cohen, brilliantly features a [ Read More ]
