Taking us back to where it all began, the film tells the true story of how these cultural rebels – armed only with their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent – stood up to the authorities that meant to keep them down and formed the world’s most dangerous group, N.W.A.

Tara Reid has hinted a new 'American Pie' film is in the works. The 39-year-old actress starred in the 1999 original but has now suggested a fifth theatrical film could be added to the series, with the movie set in Las Vegas. Speaking on Kiis FM's 'Kyle & Jackie O Show', she said: ''There's actually talks about [a fifth movie], they may be doing it in Las Vegas.'' The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star - who played Vicky in the films - added she is eager to return to the franchise, as the theatrical films have grossed more than $989 million worldwide. It was previously believed 'American Reunion', which hit cinema screens in 2012 following a nine-year hiatus, would be the final film in the series, but bosses were reportedly impressed by how it performed at the box office and are keen to capitalise on its success. However, the ' »
The fourth American Pie film to make it inside a cinema - American Reunion - may not have been a huge hit in America, but it certainly delivered elsewhere in the world. The movie took $57m in the States, adding a more than healthy $177m elsewhere on the planet. It would be fair to say its $234m box office haul more than paid for the film's production. And for a decent party afterwards.
Around the time of the movie's release, there was chatter about a potential American Pie 5, although things have been quiet on that front for a while. However, in a new interview, Tara Reid - who played Vicky in the films - has hinted there may be some progress.
"There's actually talks", she confirmed to the Kyle & Jackie O Show in Australia, »
Tara Reid has hinted that a fifth theatrical film in the series is in the works, and will go down the Hangover route by taking place in Las Vegas.
"There's actually talks about [a fifth movie], they may be doing it in Las Vegas," she told Kiis FM's Kyle & Jackie O Show today (May 11).
Reid played Vicky in the American Pie films, and when asked if she would return for a fifth, she responded with a passionate "yes".
Not including the straight-to-dvd spin-off films, the American Pie series has grossed a combined $989 million worldwide.
In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.
We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.
News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).
Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »

When a crew wraps on the shooting of a film, a cinematographer's work is still far from finished -- he has to color correct the whole thing. In this video, cinematographer Daryn Okada ("Mean Girls," "American Reunion,") demonstrates how he did the color correction for the film "Dolphin Tale 2." He compares the digital process to completing a piece of wooden furniture; once you've carved the shape and constructed the design you want, the piece still needs the color and varnish to give it a rich sheen. That's what Okada is doing with images. With color correction, a cinematographer can manipulate colors and contrasts, completely changing the light in an image. With split screens showing both the raw and final images from "Dolphin Tale 2," Okada shows how easily he is able to manipulate the time of day, add a glow in the sky, or simply make everything look more lush and appealing. »
