Vin Diesel Manhandles an Airplane in Fast & Furious Ride Behind-the-Scenes Video

28 April 2015 4:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Although it’s only been in theaters for four weeks, Furious 7 is now the fifth highest grossing movie of all time with a worldwide total of $1.32 billion and counting. Given the success of Fast & Furious 6 and Fast Five, Universal saw the writing on the wall and put the wheels in motion to bring the experience of these massively popular films to the people in the form of a ride at Universal Studios Hollywood. The result, Fast & Furious—Supercharged, is a 3D high-speed chase adventure in which Vin Diesel manhandles an airplane like it’s nothing while Michelle Rodriguez uses her mind powers to hold him steady. Or something like that. Universal Studios today released a new behind-the-scenes video for Fast & Furious—Supercharged that details the making of the ride, but more importantly, they unveiled a glorious piece of key art that brings to life the scenario detailed above. »

Don't Worry, There Will Be a Furious 8 in 2017

23 April 2015 3:32 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It looks like the Fast and Furious cast won't leave without saying goodbye, after all: Vin Diesel confirmed onstage at CinemaCon Thursday that, thanks to Furious 7 making a busload of money (that bus being perched precariously over a cliff), the long-promised Furious 8 is indeed happening. It even has a release date: April 14, 2017. That continues the every-two-years trend the series has followed since Fast Five — Dom Toretto lives his life a quarter-decade at a time. »

Strong Debut on Disc Chart for ‘Batman Vs. Robin’

22 April 2015 6:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner’s direct-to-video “Batman Vs. Robin” was the best-selling newcomer the week ending April 19, bowing at No. 1 on Nielsen VideoScan’s Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

But in overall disc sales, the animated “DC Universe Original Movie” was trumped by another Warner title, “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” which regained the top spot on Nielsen’s First Alert chart after spending two weeks at No. 2.

“Interstellar,” the Paramount sci-fi epic that occupied the No. 1 spot for the last two weeks, slipped to No. 3 on First Alert.

Rounding out the top five on the overall disc sales chart: Walt Disney’s “Big Hero 6,” repeating at No. 4, and 20th Century Fox’s “The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death,” a horror sequel that bowed at No. 5.

The original “The Woman in Black” came out in 2012 and driven by favorable reviews as well as Daniel “Harry Potter” Radcliffe in »

Star Trek 3 May Be Titled Star Trek Beyond

22 April 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a protracted development period, Star Trek 3 is finally moving full steam ahead, with Fast Five helmer Justin Lin behind the camera and series star Simon Pegg penning the script alongside Doug Jung, and today brings a possible title for the anticipated threequel.

According to TrekMovie.com (via /Film), it’s likely that the film, which will see the crew of the starship Enterprise into the deeper reaches of space on a five-year mission of exploration and discovery, is titled Star Trek Beyond. The site purportedly “has it on good authority” that the title is legitimate and has learned that Star Trek Beyond has been registered with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), a typical step that a studio takes once a title has been locked in.

It is worth noting that Bad Robot has quite a history of misleading audiences with regard to the content of its films (anyone remember this? »

Pegg: "Star Trek 3" Gets An Original Villain

21 April 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Simon Pegg is currently had at work with Doug Jung on the screenplay for the third "Star Trek" film which is slated to begin production in June.

As previously reported, Idris Elba is in talks to play the villain of the film and Pegg tells MTV that the plan is to avoid the 'Into Darkness' Khan problem and have Elba to play an original character this time out:

"It will be [an original character], yes. This is the five-year mission now, we're out there. We don't always have to keep bumping into the same people… So we're gonna try and reflect that in the movie."

Pegg goes on to say that the role is a "kick ass" one. He also says the hope is the new film will bring back the spirit of the show - something not really seen in the two rebooted movies outside of moments in the first film:

Furious 7 Box Office Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide in Record Time

17 April 2015 2:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s still baffling to me that a film franchise that began in 2001 with a fairly forgettable movie about cars is now seven films deep and stronger than ever. Not only that, but its latest installment—Furious 7—is one of the highest grossing films of all time. And it’s only been in theaters for 17 days. Universal Pictures announced today that with Friday’s grosses included, director James Wan’s Los Angeles-centric sequel will cross the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. It is now the fastest film to ever achieve that benchmark, as well as Universal’s first movie to ever reach $1 billion in initial release. Those are some crazy statistics. I thought it was a mostly Ok movie; it’s better than the forgettable Fast & Furious 6 but not as fun as Fast Five, though given the circumstances it's a miracle it works this well, and »

Holdovers ‘Interstellar,’ ‘The Hobbit’ Top Slow Home Video Sales Chart

15 April 2015 5:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After weeks of three or four high-profile new releases, the disc business is going through its usual pre-summer slowdown.

And with no new big theatrical releases arriving in stores last week, the two top spots on the national home video sales charts for the week ending April 12 are the same as in the prior week: Paramount’s “Interstellar” sci-fi epic, which earned $188 million at the U.S. box office, at No. 1, and Warner’s “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the third installment in the adventure fantasy trilogy, at No. 2.

Walt Disney again took the No. 3 and No. 4 spots, with returning titles “Into the Woods” and “Big Hero 6” on the Nielsen Videoscan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined. Both titles also finished the week in the same spots on Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray chart, albeit in the reverse order.

Patty Jenkins Will Direct Wonder Woman

15 April 2015 4:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

DC has found their new director. After Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones) departed the project two days ago over creative differences, it now appears as though Patty Jenkins (Monster) has come aboard to direct Wonder Woman for Warner Bros. This is a development made all the more interesting since Jenkins herself departed Thor: The Dark World because of those aforementioned creative differences before that Marvel project could begin shooting. I'm pretty impressed by how quickly Warner Bros. moved to secure a replacement. Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot (Fast Five) is scheduled to hit in 2017 and they needed a to hire someone quick. They also needed to hire a woman (not only for political reasons, it also feels like the right thing to do for this project). Jenkins is a real talent, and it's nice that she'll be able to play in a big sandbox (a sandbox her initial »

Box Office Democracy: Furious 7

13 April 2015 9:56 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

 

Justin Lin was the architect of the most dramatic film franchise turnarounds in my lifetime. When he signed on to make a third Fast & Furious movie the franchise was a laughing stock (I heard more jokes about the name 2 Fast 2 Furious than any movie before or since). He would, over the course of four films, turn the franchise in to the best original action movie franchise of the modern era. Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6 are the best action films of this decade and it isn’t particularly close. The mid-credits scene of Fast & Furious 6 revealing Jason Statham as the villain for the next installment was one of the happiest moments I’ve ever had in a movie theater.   If I knew anything in the world of cinema I knew Furious 7 would be a fantastic movie and that I needed to wait on the edge of my »

Weekend Box Office: Furious 7 Passes $252 Million to Become Biggest Entry in Franchise

12 April 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

At this point there’s little left to say about the overwhelming success of Furious 7. And with two weeks to go before Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theatres, we’ve got so much more time left to say it. We told you yesterday that it took just eight days for Furious 7 to top the final domestic gross of 2011’s Fast Five. Now, after ten days, F7 has officially become the highest-grossing entry in Universal’s fourteen year-old Fast and Furious franchise. According to studio estimates, Furious 7 earned a reported $60.5 million this weekend and brought its domestic total up to $252.5 million. That beats Universal’s previous franchise high of $238.6 million – earned by Fast & Furious 6 over the course of its 105-day run. If there’s a better illustration of F7’s box office prowess, I’m not sure what it would be. Though clearly fast out of the gate, »

Box Office: 'Furious 7' #1 Again with $59.5 Million, 'Ex Machina' Strong in Limited Release

12 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Furious 7 has, so far, defied the drop of its recent predecessors, taking home an estimated $59.5 million, which is a 59.5% drop from its record-breaking opening weekend and an improvement over the 63.9% drop of Fast & Furious 6 and 62.4% drop of Fast Five. It may sound like a small difference, but when you consider the fact Furious 7 opened with $147.1 million, that's actually a huge margin given it's $50 million higher than Furious 6. In fact, as the cume for Furious 7 has now grown to $251.5 million domestically, that's already $14 million more than Furious 6 made in its entire 105 days in theaters. Worldwide the Furious 7 is now up to $800.5 million as it opened in China and Russia this weekend, which included a $68.8 million opening day in China. Landing in second was Dreamworks Animation's Home with $18.5 million as its cume climbs to $129.5 million domestically. For newcomer The Longest Ride the result was »

Friday Box Office: Furious 7 Speeds Past $200 Million in Eight Days

11 April 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After claiming just about every record available last weekend - including the biggest opening of 2015 and the best April debut of all time - Furious 7 is about to make winning its second consecutive frame look ridiculously easy. The latest installment in Universal’s fourteen year-old franchise took in an estimated $19.1 million yesterday to bring its domestic total to $210.7 million in just eight days. That’s 44% ahead of the series’ previous eight-day record of $146.5 million for Fast & Furious 6. The film’s current total also tops the $209.8 million final domestic gross of 2011’s Fast Five. In slightly less positive news, yesterday’s estimate represents a decline of 72% over Furious 7’s opening last Friday. That’s pretty steep, although it does match the drop that Fast & Furious 6 took on its own second Friday two years ago. By comparison, American Sniper was off by just 40% on the Friday following its first weekend in wide release. »

First teaser trailer for True Detective 2 released

10 April 2015 3:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

HBO has debuted the first look at its massively anticipated second season of True Detective. While many hold the first season starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in high, high regard, the change of personnel for the second go-around has left many slightly bemused. But fear not, as the first look of the show lays many fans’ fears to bed.

Created by Nic Pizzolatto, True Detective Season 2 will see Colin Farrell (Seven Psychopaths) plays Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him; Rachel McAdams (A Most Wanted Man) plays Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves; while Taylor Kitsch (The Savages) plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the California Highway Patrol, running from a difficult past »

Box Office Predictions: 'Furious 7' Will Drive Over 'The Longest Ride'

9 April 2015 9:54 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Furious 7 can be counted on to easily scoop up a second weekend crown (only five more until it equals Avatar). Here are the previous second weekend drops: Fast and Furious 6 - 63.9 percent Fast Five - 62.4 percent million Fast and Furious - 50 percent So why am I going with only a 55 percent dropc Easy peezy, this is a franchise in ascension. There's still momentum, and people might be seeing it twice. Secondly, no Easter or Final Four to compete against. It all adds up to a decent holdover (at least in the modern age). Add another $67.8 million to the coffers. The only wide new release of the weekend is Nic Sparks' The Longest Ride. I'm so happy I didn't have to see this one. Generally these Sparkers open in the teens (and for the teens). I like a teen open here too, $14.9 million, which will only be good enough for a bronze medal. »

'Fast & Furious 8' and the Success of Backwards Filmmaking

8 April 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

When you are a studio executive and your latest blockbuster rakes in a cool $392.3 million worldwide in the matter of just three days, what do you do nextc You plan for the sequel, of course. But in a story published by The Hollywood Reporter, it seems Fast and Furious 8 isn't nearing production, or even pre-production, as quickly as one might think. "Honestly, we're just bathing in the success of this," states Furious 7 producer Neal Moritz. And frankly, why wouldn't Universal take some time to enjoy the ridec Studios are primarily concerned with making money through strong brands, sustainable franchises, and recognizable stars, and in recent years few franchises have been as lucrative as the Fast and Furious series, whose success only grows with each new entry. Fast Five grossed $626.1 million at the worldwide box office, Fast and Furious 6 pulled down $788.7 million in global receipts, and with a worldwide gross that currently stands at $406.3 million, »
