By this time next year, our world will be home to seven Fast and Furious films. This is truly the golden age of franchise cinema, and bless the broken road the allowed a seemingly throwaway feature about muscle cars and macho dudes to spawn one of the world’s most beloved and ballsy film franchises. But although the Fast franchise has managed to easily pivot from chronicling car racing and backyard barbecues into a full throttle heist series, there’s one alteration they’ve never been able to nail: those titles. The franchise’s titling has never been uniform — like, at all — but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming one of the world’s highest grossing series. What’s in a name? When it comes to Fast and Furious, well, not much. The Fast and the Furious The first film came complete with a moniker that has frequently been chopped down, chipped »

2 Fast 2 Furious, The Fast and the Furious, Fast and Furious, Fast Five - the Fast and Furious franchise isn't exactly known for creativity in its movie titles.

Though the film was previously called Fast and Furious 7, the franchise's Facebook page premiered a poster for the film Sunday along with the new title. The Furious 7 cast includes Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham, Tony Jaa, and Kurt Russell. »

The Fast and the Furious series seems to be the last bastion of old school action movies still alive in the Hollywood system, particularly since the Die Hard films became a soggy old collection of catch phrases. Thank Christ then that not only is Son of a Gun a return to the old school action thrillers of the past, but is a Western Australian one at that.
This is a film of tough men doing tough things, of shoot outs and car chases, and of backstabbing double crosses. This is what has been missing from action cinema lately, and it is refreshing and exciting to see something so propulsive and unashamedly kick-ass. This is no slick Hollywood blockbuster though, so there is still room for great character driven drama amongst the set pieces and despite its lower budget, the film still looks and sounds the business.

Fury is a film about an American tanker unit during the last stretch of WWII in 1945. The Allies are well into Germany at this point and only the real fanatics, primarily the SS units, are the major problem. However, being fanatics the fighting is particularly intense as it is the phase of the war where the German soldiers are protecting the fatherland itself. Fierce resistance is an understatement. The film was written and directed by David Ayer, who also wrote Training Day (2001) and The Fast and the Furious (2001). He directed End of Watch (2012) and Sabotage (2014). In short, the guy knows action.
This film is intense – as it should be. War is indeed hell. Fury successfully shows us that. The opening is a jarring scene and sets the tone. Death comes quickly, like a shadow in the fog, and it is brutal.
The film begins with the tanker crew of the tank named Fury, »

Director David Ayer made his directorial debut with his original screenplay Harsh Times. The gritty drama, starring Christian Bale and Freddy Rodriguez, which was released in the fall of 2006. Ayer garnered widespread acclaim and accolades for his hyper-realistic portrayal of life behind the blue line in End of Watch (2012). He moved to Los Angeles as a teenager and the experiences of his upbringing shaped much of his artistic vision and his inside knowledge and affection for the culture surrounding law enforcement can be seen throughout his work.
Ayer joined the United States Navy, where he served as sonar man aboard a nuclear attack submarine during the Cold War. After an honorable discharge, Ayer began writing. He wrote and was a co-producer on his “calling card” spec script Training Day, which became a hit film and garnered Denzel Washington an Academy Award for Best Actor.
Ayer also co-wrote the submarine thriller U-571, »

At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. With the release of Fury this week, let’s examine the trademark style and calling signs of David Ayer as director.
David Ayer began his movie career as a writer, recalling on his experiences in the Navy to write the script for U-571. He worked on several other scripts, including The Fast and The Furious, and Training Day. His feature debut as director was 2005’s Harsh Times, which wasn’t well received. His follow-up was Street Kings (2008), which featured a number of big-name actors, yet didn’t receive too much attention from audiences or critics. End of Watch (2012) is his most successful film to date. It was highly regarded by critics and fit in well with his style and proficiencies as a filmmaker. Ayer got a »

If it wasn’t obvious from the desperation oozing from The Amazing Spider-man 2, Sony would really like a shared cinematic universe. Ever since Marvel stepped up their game and showed the big guys how it’s done, it is now necessary that films are not only single franchises, but expand their scope into new characters and realms. Hell, even The Conjuring has just received one thanks to Annabelle.
But despite all this, and the majority of shared universes being set in the world of superheroes who have shared their comic book pages for many a year, this has to be the absolute strangest. Sony are planning a film titled Hood, which will be a The Fast And The Furious meets Mission: Impossible take on the classic tale of Robin Hood. We assume from such comparisons that said film will take place in modern day.
Although that may not be too suprising, »

Dwayne Johnson has aptly been labeled “franchise steroids” for his ability to revitalize series like The Fast and the Furious, G.I. Joe, and even Journey to the Center of the Earth with his incredible charisma and screen presence. This will be put to the ultimate test very soon, as THR now reports that Johnson is attached to star in the Baywatch movie for Paramount Pictures. Moreover, the writing team of Sean Anders and John Morris have come aboard to direct the film after making their helming debut on the upcoming comedy Horrible Bosses 2. More on this development after the jump. Per THR, Johnson is now loosely attached to star in Paramount’s Baywatch movie as the studio is moving forward with the film by hiring Justin Malen to do a script rewrite and Anders and Morris to direct. The feature film adaptation of the delightfully cheesy 1990s TV series »

Dwayne Johnson has his sights set on revitalizing yet another series much like he did with The Fast And The Furious, G.I. Joe, and Journey To The Center Of The Earth if we want to get real here. He is a born entertainer and watching him transition from the ring to the big screen has been a pleasure for everyone. So why not get him to jump start that Baywatch movie that has been talked about for years? It makes perfect sense and comes at a time when self-aware comedy and spoofing needs some »

Dracula has been a popular draw for cinema audiences since the earliest days of cinema. Just the mere mention of the name will conjure up a variety of actors who’ve made the Transylvanian blood sucker their own, from Bela Lugosi and Christopher Lee to Gary Oldman and, er, Dominic Purcell. Very little screen time has been devoted to Dracula’s origins, though, so in keeping with the year one (Untold’s original title) trend that’s punctuated many a movie re-launch over the past decade or so - in the likes of Casino Royale and X-Men: First Class - the prince of darkness finally has a little light shone on how he came to be.
