Fast and Furious Spin-Off Villain and New Character Details Revealed

With production to begin on Universal's Fast and Furious Spin-Off this fall, reportedly called Hobbs & Shaw, a casting call has surfaced revealing details about new characters. Among these characters are a new villain, along with another member of Deckard Shaw's family who will be introduced. While none of these details have been confirmed by the studio yet, there may be some potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

This report claims that the story will follow both Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) as they team up together to take down a new villain. This spin-off was rumored to be set up by a post-credit scene in The Fate of the Furious, but star/producer Vin Diesel reportedly had it removed from the final cut. There have also been rumors that The Fate of the Furious villain Cipher (Charlize Theron) will return, but

"Lost In Space: The Complete John Williams Collection" On Vinyl

  • CinemaRetro
By Darren Allison

Before inheriting the title "Master of Disaster", a perfectly justified honour for his reputation of creating some of the greatest disaster movies of the 1970s, Irwin Allen was also the man responsible for some of the classic TV shows to emerge in the 1960’s. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, The Time Tunnel, and Land of the Giants have all survived the test of time and become immortalised among the best in terms of cultural importance. However, above all others, Lost in Space (1965-1968) is arguably the series that endured. Very loosely inspired by Johan David Wyss's classic 1812 adventure novel “Swiss Family Robinson”, the premise for the show was fairly uncomplicated and followed the adventures of the Robinson family, a crew of space colonists who encounter a number of strange and otherworldly situations after their ship is sabotaged and thrown off its original course.

Kurt Russell Is Santa Claus in New Netflix Christmas Movie
Kurt Russell has signed on to play Santa Claus in an untitled Netflix Christmas Movie, joining young actors Judah Lewis and Darby Camp. Production is now scheduled to begin in January 2018, with Netflix eyeing to air this holiday movie around Christmas 2018, although no specific release date has been issued thus far. There is no indication about how many more cast members still need to be added before filming begins.

The story centers on a pair of siblings, played by Judah Lewis and Darby Camp, who try to get proof that Santa Claus is actually real, by catching jolly Saint Nick on camera. When they accidentally cause Santa to crash his sleigh in Chicago, they join up with Saint Nick to help get Christmas back on track before it's too late. The script was written by Matt Lieberman, who wrote The Addams Family stop-motion project that is in production for MGM.

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Toby Regbo

While most of the actors starring in popular films and shows have considerable talent, it often takes many years to hone the skills it takes to become a critically acclaimed performer. Some actors, on the other hand, seem to develop these skills very young. One such individual is the highly talented Toby Regbo. He is best known for starring in Mr. Nobody and Reign, and he also starred in the second season of The Last Kingdom. Those who know Regbo only for his performances are missing out on a highly interesting personal history. His background is arguably as interesting as

New to Streaming: ‘I Am Not Your Negro,’ ‘Three,’ ‘War on Everyone,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Beauty and the Beast (Bill Condon)

The near-ubiquitous familiarity with the majority of Disney animations make the financial proposition of a live-action remake a no-brainer greenlight. In aiming to appeal to those experiencing these stories for the first time, the generation prior, and the generation that brought that generation to the theater, it can also be as creatively risk-averse as one might imagine.

Family: Fast/Furious, 2001-2017

How can we not talk about family When family's all that we got?—Wiz Khalifa (feat. Charlie Puth), See You AgainWhat a long, strange ride it's been… and still some way to go. As I write, the eighth film in the Fast/Furious series (Ff) is still playing in thousands of cinemas worldwide. I won't concern myself here with the box-office performance of The Fate of the Furious—nor will I attempt synopsis of this or the previous installments—except to note that enough money was taken on opening-day alone to confirm we can expect the ninth and tenth in this prodigiously lucrative Universal franchise to hit our screens late spring or early summer, in 2019 and 2021.Ideally the 10th—and, presuming Vin Diesel's September 2015 comment about "one last trilogy" is honored, final—picture should arrive exactly 20 years after Rob Cohen’s The Fast and the Furious bowed on 22nd June,

Kurt Russell Wants In On Fast And The Furious 9

Screen Rant spoke with Kurt Russell recently about his involvement in the Fast And The Furious franchise. Starting with the franchise in the seventh movie as the character Mr. Nobody, he's been a part of the financial zenith of that film series. He commented about his previous reluctance to work on sequels.

"Well, all my life I’ve never been one for sequels and stuff. I’ve done it one time with Escape From La, which was from Escape From New York, which was 17 years earlier. But we live in a different time now. We live in a time where that’s the norm. I’ve never had anything against it, I just think that each time what I think they’ve learned now, is that you can’t just throw a sequel out there because you did good business.

Vin Diesel and The Rock End Feud, Both Returning in Fast and Furious 9

Vin Diesel and The Rock End Feud, Both Returning in Fast and Furious 9
Even before The Fate of the Furious took in a record-breaking global box office debut of $531.9 million, Universal had already put plans in place for the final two movies in the franchise. Fast & Furious 9 is set to hit theaters on April 19, 2019, with the franchise finale, Fast & Furious 10 hitting theaters on April 2, 2021. While the movie's box office take apparently wasn't affected at all, this new movie made headlines for a behind-the-scenes feud between stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, which reportedly even lead to both actors being separated during the movie's promotional tour. Today a new report claims that both actors have put their differences aside and resolved their feud, both now slated to return in Fast & Furious 9, while Kurt Russell also expresses his interest in coming back as Mr. Nobody.

Family First: Dwayne Johnson And Vin Diesel Reportedly Set For Fast And Furious 9, Kurt Russell Also Game To Return

The Fast and the Furious isn’t a franchise that takes itself too seriously. Whether it’s cars raining from the sky or Vin Diesel’s petrolhead Dominic Toretto rambling on about the importance of family for the umpteenth time, Universal’s series has developed a potent recipe of jaw-dropping, physics-defying action sequences and enough testosterone to sink a nuclear submarine.

And even though The Fate of the Furious marked the eighth installment in the franchise, the film’s record-shattering opening weekend – $532.5 million, to be precise, which is just north of Star Wars: The Force Awakens – proves that there’s still an almost insatiable appetite for the Fast and Furious recipe. However, midway through production on F. Gary Gray’s tentpole sequel, tensions bubbled to the fore, after reports emerged that Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson (Luke Hobbs) butted heads on set. The beef was allegedly due to the

Kurt Russell is in the lucky position where right after having been a part of a record-breaking global box office smash hit in The Fate of the Furious, he is about to be a part of another worldwide cultural phenomenon in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Speaking to Screen Rant, Kurt Russell expressed what would convince him to take part in Fast & Furious 9, stating: “Well, all my life I’ve never been one for sequels and stuff.

Review — ‘The Fate of the Furious’ Is Little More Than a Loud Family Reunion

The Fate of the Furious’ Is Little More Than a Loud Family ReunionThe only thing furious here is the slapping of keyboards as hackers wage war.

If you look up “unlikeliest franchises” in the dictionary, well, you’re a fool, because that’s not how dictionaries work. But if they did, and if you did, the picture you’d see staring back at you from what has now become a picture dictionary of some sort would probably be of Vin Diesel grimacing behind the wheel of a car while flaming semi-trucks do wheelies out his back window. What started with the simple joys of street-racing in 2001’s The Fast and the Furious has morphed into the biggest and silliest film series out there.

After peaking with Fast Five in 2011 the franchise left that film’s perfect balance of beautiful, ridiculous action and entertainingly silly writing to tilt further and further into full-on, regrettably

Literally Just 16 Insane Spoilers From Fate of the Furious

To put it simply, the eighth movie in the Fast and Furious franchise is f*cking insane.

Second Opinion – The Fate of the Furious (2017)

The Fate of the Furious, 2017.

Directed by F. Gary Gray.

Starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Helen Mirren, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky, Scott Eastwood, Kurt Russell, Luke Evans, and Charlize Theron.

Synopsis:

When a mysterious woman seduces Dom into the world of terrorism and a betrayal of those closest to him, the crew face trials that will test them as never before.

To call The Fate of the Furious a mid-tier entry into the series is to tempt confusion, given the clear line drawn between the more niche, petrolhead-baiting original four movies and the vastly superior heist movie reinvention that took hold with 2011’s Fast Five. Be sure that while number eight isn’t a top-shelf effort, it is a riotously entertaining ride all the same, one that remains largely consistent with the thrills of the previous three films in particular.

The Fate Of The Furious Review: Perhaps The Best Entry In The Franchise Yet

The Fast and Furious franchise is a damn interesting one to look at. Who’d’ve thought way back in 2001 that a little film about underground street racing would end up as one of the most profitable action franchises of all time? It was something that could not have been foreseen, and it’s been rewarding to see a series like this pivot from one thing to another when it realized certain aspects of its formula were working. Now, each film seems to have about as many explosions as your average Transformers flick. And it’s awesome.

Before I get started, I think it’s worth mentioning that, like many folks, I grew up watching these movies, from its lowly beginnings to its current iteration. I hated Tokyo Drift, and I was surprised to see its resurgence in Fast and Furious, the fourth film in the franchise. Fast Five was high point for the series,

The Fate Of The Furious Review

Throughout Universal’s engine-revving Fast And Furious franchise, Dominic Toretto’s crew has preached constant themes – family, respect and buckets of iced Coronas. So why does F. Gary Gray’s The Fate Of The Furious shift gears so jerkily? Chris Morgan’s latest script abandons fist-pounding #brotendancies for a bumpier, more handcuffed adventure that’s too reminiscent of blockbuster generics. It’s less fast, and not as furious – albeit outrageous and fan-friendly. Entire scenes seem lifted from Vin Diesel’s xXx: Return Of Xander Cage (like, the whole opening), except without tongue-in-cheek awareness. This is the dark(ish), consequence-first mission the detours into metallic blandness and automobile product placement (drink every time a different company logo enters frame). Torreto’s team goes from grease-monkey Robin Hoods to pistol-gripping anybodies – Dom oh Dom, what have you done?

Fate Of The Furious is one big fan-service buffet that begins with the exotic flavors of Cuba.

'The Fate of the Furious' Review: Vin Diesel Rides High on Fumes
It's party time for action junkies and auto-erotics. The Fate of the Furious, a.k.a. Furious 8, is a bolt of greased lightning that never lets up on the shake, rattle and hum. Is it as killer good as 2015's Furious 7? Don't get greedy. That thunderously exciting and surprisingly touching blockbuster would have made the ideal capper to the Fast and the Furious franchise that began in 2001.

Fast and Furious 8 review: Dir. F. Gary Gray (2017)

Fast and Furious 8 review: Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson return for more highway hijinks in the eighth instalment in the franchise. But, has the fate of the furious been sealed with a tired big-budgeter that finally runs of of steam? Not likely.

Fast and Furious 8 review by Paul Heath, April 2017.

Fast and Furious 8 review

What to do when you get to that difficult eighth movie? It’s undeniable that The Fast and the Furious series of movies have done really rather well over the 16 years that they’ve been present in local multiplexes, but really its success was only elevated to the next level for Universal back in 2011 when the franchise totally reinvented itself. The addition of Dwayne Johnson to the growing cast was arguably the biggest contributing factor to its successful rebirth – well, along with the ludicrous plot, well-crafted cartoon-like characters and witty one-liners too. Still, four years on

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of The Fate Of The Furious In St. Louis

On the heels of 2015’s Furious 7, one of the fastest movies to reach $1 billion worldwide and the sixth-biggest global title in box-office history, comes the newest chapter in one of the most popular and enduring motion-picture serials of all time: The Fate of the Furious.

As evidenced by last December’s trailer debut of the film—which currently ranks as the biggest ever, with more than 139 million views in the 24 hours after its unveiling in Times Square—audiences’ appetite for tales from the Fast & Furious saga has never been bigger, and the franchise has never been more popular or more global. Although this group has experienced much on the road that has brought them here—as they shot cars out of planes, through skyscrapers and down mountains—the core idea that drives them has never wavered: family. Now that Dom and Letty are married and Brian and Mia have
