Fast & Furious movies make no effort to hide what they are and certainly don't pretend to be something they're not. Brain checking at the door is a requirement which the franchise's millions of fans have proven time and time again is more than welcome to accommodate. Delivery of the expected "goods" is as predictable as rain being wet to the touch.
The successful formula Fast & Furious movies start with are scenes featuring shiny, colorful cars revving souped-up, after-market engines, shiny chrome - well, everything, Nos Nitrous canisters, and tires that will never, ever, ever go flat.
To further embellish the rides, add scantily clad women dancing to DJ-spun house music, usually in well-lit, well-attended public places, with zero-to-no interference from the authorities.
Now mix in a crime caper of some kind. Hollywood itself actually has a mathematical formula for this that says that if you have more than three leads above the title, »
Four talented magicians mesmerize an international audience with a series of bold and original heists, all the while pursuing a hidden agenda that has the FBI and Interpol scrambling to anticipate their next move in Now You See Me, a visually spectacular blend of astonishing illusions and exhilarating action from director Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans).
The Four Horsemen, a magic super‐group led by the charismatic J.Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of hightech, high‐profile magic shows, first amazing audiences by remotely robbing a Paris bank while in Las Vegas, and then exposing a white‐collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts, baffling the authorities with their intricately planned capers.

Flesh-eating squirrels? Ok, stick with it...'Squirrels' is the new project acquired from Bazelevs, the company that talented Russian filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov ('Night Watch', Wanted') is behind. Red Sea Media bought up the international rights tot he project and are currently shopping around for a director and an A-list cast. The flick will come from a script penned by co-writers Daniel Antoniazzi and Ben Shiffrin and is based on an original idea by Bekmambetov himself. Along with the announcement comes a cool piece of early teaser art featuring a hungry little fella and humourous strapline which you can check out below. Interesting that there's no mention whatsoever of Bekmambetov's most recent effort 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' on the poster. Something which perhaps doesn't hold as much cache as his past projects. Check it out. »

The 2013-14 primetime season is starting to take shape, with Fox handing out series orders to four dramas.
The new entrants encompass a legal vehicle toplined by Greg Kinnear, two cop shows — one set 35 years in the future, the other among present-day gang unit — and a time-travel fantasy “Sleepy Hollow.” Fox is clearly leaning toward guy-friendly fare to build on the momentum it has developed this season with the gory serial killer drama “The Following.”

Are prequels in the air this week or something? First, New Girl and now Community.
But while that New Girl episode used the extended flashback as a device to flesh out its characters' sexual and romantic hang-ups, "Heroic Origins" utilized the flashback to a more Community-appropriate end: to spin the tales of how each of the Greendale Seven hit the particular rock bottom that brought them to the school.
It was also a clever and tender tribute to the 2008 Angelina Jolie film Wanted (yes, that is definitely the first and last time that I, or probably any other human being, am going to write that sentence).
Late-aughts Angelina Jolie vehicles aside, the episode harkened back to the alternate timelines plotline of Community Season 3's classic "Remedial Chaos Theory," with its dextrous flipping between the past and present, and each of the Greendale Seven's pre-Greendale lives (well, except for that brief appearance by Pierce, »

A big screen adaptation of Epic Games' hit third-person shooter Gears of War has been in development since 2007, and after slipping into development hell, last October brought rumours that talent agency CAA was looking to revive the movie. Well, now comes word that Ted and 47 Ronin producer Scott Stuber has secured the film rights and will look to develop a new script alongside developers Epic.
According to Variety, Stuber is yet to appoint a screenwriter to the adaptation, which was initially written by Stuart Beattie (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), with Chris Morgan (Wanted) subsequently coming in to do a rewrite when director Len Wiseman (Total Recall) became attached in 2008. There's also no talent or distributor attached as of yet, although Stuber has a first-look deal with Universal and the report states that both parties will soon be shopping the project to potential studios.

The film is based upon Mark Millar (Kick Ass, Wanted) and Dave Gibbons’ (Watchmen) comic of the same name and will be Vaughn’s second collaboration with Millar following their enormous success with 2010’s Kick Ass.
Oscar winner for The King’s Speech, Firth recently played a spy in 2011’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Here he will play a veteran super-spy and James Bond-type named Uncle Jack who trains up his slacker nephew Gary to become his successor. The plot of the comic involves Jack and Gary investigating a series of celebrity kidnappings, among them Mark Hamill and Ridley Scott, though it’s unconfirmed yet whether either will actually appear in the movie. Vaughn and Miller certainly have suggested in the past they want Hamill to be involved.
Incidentally, Gary was originally »

British bloke Colin Firth (“The King’s Speech”) has never done a comic book movie before, which is surprising since it seems like all the major comic book movie characters are going to Brits these days. But if a deal goes through, Firth will be changing that when he enlists in Matthew Vaughn’s “The Secret Service”. The trades have Firth currently in talks to take the lead in Vaughn’s film, an adaptation of the comic book of the same name by the prolific Mark Millar (“Wanted”) and artist Dave Gibbons (of “Watchmen” fame). “The Secret Service” tells the tale of “a ruffian from the rough neighborhoods of London who gets recruited by his uncle into a British spy school of the sort that churns out suave, sophisticated gentlemen-agent types in the 007 mold.” I’m guessing Firth is in talks to play the uncle. Vaughn, who actually dropped out »
Anghus Houvouras reviews the first issue of Jupiter's Legacy...
"The comic-book event of 2013 finally arrives as superstar creators Mark Millar and Frank Quitely give us the superhero epic that all future comics will be measured by. The world's greatest heroes have grown old and their legacy is a poisonous one to the children who will never live up to their remarkable parents. Unmissable."
One of the aspects of modern comics that I find the most interesting is the meta style analysis of superheroes. Modern writers have spent a lot of time and effort analyzing the medium. There's a lot of comics out there that break down the medium to a microscopic level finding stories that say as much about the people writing them (or reading them in some cases) than the characters portrayed in them.
Mark Millar is a writer whose work I enjoy. Though there are familiar patterns woven »
