Vin Diesel Predicts Best Picture Win for 'Furious 7' as Academy's Board of Governors Meets

24 March 2015 1:35 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This evening the Academy's Board of Governors will meet to discuss the future of the Oscars with the possibility of going back to five Best Picture nominees on the table and something many believe will in fact be ratified. Well, if that's the case then we better start trying to figure out what the other four nominees for Best Picture will be as Vin Diesel assures us one of the spots is already locked up by his latest movie, Furious 7. "Universal is going to have the biggest movie in history with this movie," Diesel told Variety. "It will probably win best picture at the Oscars, unless the Oscars don't want to be relevant ever (Burn!)... There is nothing that will ever come close to the power of this thing." I have a hard time believing Diesel is serious with this and the last two paragraphs in that Variety piece are almost cringe inducing, »

Fast & Furious 7 review: Series bids emotional farewell to Paul Walker

24 March 2015 4:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: James Wan; Screenwriter: Chris Morgan; Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Lucas Black; Running time: 137 mins; Certificate: 15

From small beginnings as a plucky street racing drama, the Fast & Furious series has transformed itself into a juggernaut tentpole franchise that delivers jaw-dropping vehicular carnage and testosterone-soaked fist fights. Cast members aside, the Fast movies of recent years bear little resemblance to the early outings.

It wasn't until the arrival of Dwayne Johnson in 2011's Fast Five that the films really found their feet - now they're competing for serious box office bucks with the likes of Marvel and Transformers. In short, the Fast franchise now produces the kind of action movies you wished The Expendables would.

Picking up straight where Fast & Furious 6 left off, the storyline this time around is driven by Deckard Shaw's (Jason Statham »

Fast & Furious 7 review

24 March 2015 2:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

High-octane sequel Fast & Furious 7 satisfies as an action film and a moving send-off for the late Paul Walker, Ryan writes...

Fifteen years ago, a magazine article about illegal street racing left a producer with dollar signs in his eyes, and the result was the trashily entertaining The Fast & The Furious - a high-speed reworking of Point Break with a title taken from an old Roger Corman movie (director Rob Cohen got the title from Corman in exchange for a few reels of stock footage).

That Universal now has such a huge franchise on its hands is no small thanks to director Justin Lin, who managed to take the series from its increasingly niche street racing roots and into new, colossally over-the-top action territory with Fast Five. But Fast & Furious 7 sees Lin replaced by a new director, James Wan - a filmmaker more closely associated with his Saw films than high-octane stunts. »

Six new action-packed clips from Furious 7 have been released

21 March 2015 3:52 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

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 »

Watch The Rock And Jason Statham Do Battle In This Badass Furious 7 Clip

19 March 2015 8:59 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's one thing to hear about how awesome and insane James Wan's Furious 7 is, but it's a completely different thing to see that badassery at work. While the trailers have been pretty high octane, this clip with The Rock and Jason Statham trying to end each other is pretty... well, watch the clip yourself and you can finish that sentence. Machinima was the lucky group of bastards that scored the clip's YouTube premiere, and after watching it a good five or six times, it's easy to see just how Furious 7 plans to top the spectacular fight that raged between Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in Fast Five. While Statham doesn't have a size equivalent to that of Johnson's muscle bound frame, he does still have the speed and reflexes he honed during his time in the Transporter saga. It should be noted that while this »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Furious 7′

16 March 2015 5:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A new director at the helm and the sudden death of leading man Paul Walker might have spelled doom for the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, but rather like one of its own seemingly indestructible muscle cars, “Furious 7” has emerged miraculously unscathed. In taking over for longtime director Justin Lin (parts 3-6), horror auteur James Wan (“The Conjuring”) ably steps up to the big-action plate, orchestrating two-plus-hours of increasingly outlandish vehicular (and aerobatic) mayhem that revs pulses and engines in roughly equal measure. Completed under what were surely challenging circumstances, but (mostly) seamless to behold, “Furious 7” provides both a satisfying chapter in the movies’ preeminent gearhead soap opera and a tactful, touching memorial to Walker, whose final screen appearance will help ensure that this already $2.3 billion series is seven times lucky at the worldwide box office.

Furious 7 Review [SXSW 2015]

16 March 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this point, the entire Fast & Furious franchise has become nothing but an exercise in one-upping itself. Starting with Fast Five‘s gravity-defying cliff jump, Justin Lin took to Fast & Furious 6 with every intention to blow his previous film’s scope away in a haze of Nos residue – and he did. Lin’s antics cemented a fresh tone of absurdity for future filmmakers to follow, and first up is James Wan with his entry into the car-chasing, muscle-bulging, explosion-heavy franchise.

So how does Furious 7 stack up against Lin’s turbo-fueled ass-kickers? Let’s just say Wan makes a damn good case as to why he left the horror genre behind for a bit, silencing any doubters who thought his transition to be foolish. The boys and girls are back, and you’ll be glad that you are, too.

Smallville's John Schneider Wasn't A Big Fan Of Man Of Steel's Jonathan Kent

14 March 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Not only did 2013's Man Of Steel finish with a total box office gross of over $668 million, it also managed to successfully launch the DC Cinematic Universe, which will pick up again in 2016 with Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The cast features Henry Cavill (Immortals) and five-time Academy Award nominee  Amy Adams (Enchanted) returning as Superman and Lois Lane respectively, Academy Award-winner Ben Affleck (Daredevil) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast Five) as Wonder Woman, and Jason Momoa (Game Of Thrones) as Aquaman, amongst others. While it was financially successful, Man Of Steel managed to be one of the more controversial CBMs in recent memory. While many fans loved and enjoyed it, an equal number of fans were left wanting and weren't as happy with some of the liberties director Zack Snyder took in the film and it looks like we can add Smallville's John Schneider to that long »

Fast Five is a Unity 3D game tie-in from the movie of the same name.Although this game has been out a few years it is well worth a go, though we are not so keen on the engine sounds!Like the film the action takes place in Rio and see you racing through the streets to complete various tasks. These can range from time trials to pursuits.Use the Arrow Keys to control your car and the Spacebar to drift.See if you have the nerves for Fast Five and put the pedal to the metal. »

Furious 7 Extended Look Offers Up A Slice Of Airborne Chaos

6 March 2015 7:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a prolonged development that witnessed the tragic death of one of the franchise’s leading stars in Paul Walker, Furious 7 is now barreling down on its April release date. And to ensure excitement remains at fever pitch, Universal has unveiled a new extended look at one of the sequel’s key, show-stopping scenes: the skydive.

Given that this is a Fast and Furious film, though, the stunt isn’t your run-of-the-mill procedure; rather, on this instance we see Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto lead his crew and their cars out of the back of an airborne plane, presumably kicking off a top-secret mission. It’s a great scene that retains the gleeful, go-big-or-go-home nature of the franchise, and we’re excited to see what James Wan has in store once the full-length feature hits theaters in a few weeks time.

Picking up shortly after the events of Fast and Furious »

Fighting words from The Miz ... this time, the WWE superstar tells TMZ Sports he honestly believes he's the Greatest actor in wrestling history -- and specifically calls out The Rock.  In Miz's defense, it sounds like he'd been drinking on his way out of Warwick in Hollywood Wednesday night -- but he couldn't be more clear, "There is no WWE superstar who's ever been a better actor than me."
