Launching the careers of Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and more, the teen musical rom-com spawned two sequels, including a theatrical release for the third film, which brought in over $250 million worldwide at the box office.

Over the weekend, Vin Diesel shared the first promotional image for Fast & Furious 8, which is set to see director F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job, Straight Outta Compton) picking up the baton from Fast & Furious 7 helmer James Wan for what’s said to be the first instalment of “one last trilogy to end the saga”.
Speaking to Collider to promote the home-entertainment release of Straight Outta Compton, Gray has been discussing his plans for the eighth instalment of the action series, stating that he plans “to bring something different to the franchise while still satisfying what the fans want.”
“[Vin and I] talked about all of the Fast movies up to this point, and where could we go,” states Gray. “I think he was really happy with the vision I have for the franchise and I was really happy about where he sees not only his character going but the franchise itself, »

Fast & Furious franchise star Vin Diesel has unveiled the first official Fast 8 photo on his Instagram account. Interestingly enough, the picture not only is a nice tease for fans anxiously awaiting the eight installment, but it also confirms that the film will primarily be shooting in New York City, considering that the image shows many of the city’s skyscrapers, including the Empire State Building. The tagline “New Roads Ahead” goes to show that the series will be heading in a different direction with its next entry. See it for yourself here…
On top of NYC, reports also suggest that the film will do some shooting in Cuba.
Last year, Furious 7 defied expectations at the box office and further confirmed that »

If you’re going to fill the role of one of the most attractive comic book characters to live under the sea, you may as well hire one of the hottest women to live on land. The Hollywood Reporter are spreading the good word that Amber Heard (Magic Mike Xxl, Machete Kills) is in negotiations for the role of Aquaman’s wife (and queen of Atlantis), Mera.
Not only would Heard appear in the Aquaman film that Jason Momoa is headlining in 2018, she would also apparently be given screen time in Justice League: Part One, due out next year. With a release date for DC and Warner Bros. Avengers-beater approaching so rapidly, expect a lot more casting updates such as this to crop up as the studio get all their ducks in a row.

Amber Heard is an actress who's always been right on the cusp of breaking out in a much bigger way. She's pretty fantastic in genre movies (see Drive Angry, Zombieland, Machete Kills), and lately she's been flirting with more prestigious fare (see The Danish Girl). Now comes confirmation that Heard's star status is about to take a more heroic jump, with The Wrap reporting that she's in talks to star as Aquaman's (Jason Momoa) love interest Mera in the 2018 Aquaman movie, with her introduction coming in 2017's Justice League film. Mera is kind of a big deal and Queen of Atlantis, not to mention Aquaman's main squeeze. Among her powers is the ability to control water, and she's been a central figure in the Aquaman comics since the '60s. Zack...

Inexcusably self-indulgent. Tarantino gratifies his enormous self-love and his amusement at his own genius at the expense of all else. I’m “biast” (pro): loved Tarantino’s last two films…
I’m “biast” (con): …but really hate some of his films, too
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Damn. So after the marvels of Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino has swung back to the Kill Bill style of filmmaking, which I described in my review of Basterds as a cinematic “circle jerk in which he and his fans get off on one another and how clever they all are to be such rapacious film geeks.” With the inexcusably self-indulgent The Hateful Eight, Tarantino has returned to the gratification of his enormous self-love and his amusement at his own genius at the expense of all else.
There are no characters to like in Eight. »

Walton Goggins is excited about The Hateful Eight. The film is really good, he’s terrific in it and, as one of the lead characters in the new Quentin Tarantino film, it’s perhaps his most high profile role to date. He has a lot to be excited about.
Even his hair looks excited, jutting up wildly. He’s animated and moves a lot, but he’s not wired and out of control. He just exudes enthusiasm and seems happy to be where he is, talking about his work. He’s great fun to talk to; enthusiastic and warm interview subjects are something of a gift. Here’s how our chat with Walton Goggins went.
How do you respond, when you get that script (for The Hateful Eight)?
You know, Quentin doesn »
