I am Lost in the Multiplex's resident Fast & Furious fanatic, so it's an understatement t say to say that Fast & Furious 6 is my most anticipated movie of the summer.
The previous trailers stuck to the same key moneyshots; the military convoy attack, the tank, the plane. This trailer changes it up, with the plane set piece no longer capping off proceedings, in favour of a greater focus on the heart of the story: The rift in the Fast family between Vin Diesel's Dom and Michelle Rodriguez's now villainous Letty.
Hatchet 3 is coming out. The trailer is fantastic, (if a little too gruesome for anyone who doesn't like exploding heads), and it proves that the series continues to raise the bar when it comes to shock and gore. This time around, Adam Green isn't going to direct, handing over shooting duties to one of the camera operators from the previous two, BJ McDonnell.
Director/writer of The Avengers. God-King to comic book fans. Bushy gingerbearded nerd-gent. One of these descriptions probably comes to mind when you think of Joss Whedon. Speaking at the Iron Man 3 premiere, he conﬁrmed that he had just ﬁnished the ﬁrst draft of his script for The Avengers 2. When asked if the success of the ﬁrst ﬁlm (which earned $1.5 billion worldwide) had any effect on his writing of the sequel, he replied: "I try not to think of it as topping 'The Avengers,' I try to think of this as its own movie."
Two more Star Trek Into Darkness posters have arrived, leaving my mind racing again.
21 Jump Street - based on a TV show of the same name from the late 1980's - took Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill back to high school as two under-achieving, undercover cops in order to bust a drug ring, in what was one of the most unexpectedly enjoyable films of 2012.
Producer Neal H. Moritz has confirmed that directors Chris Miller & Phil Lord – who also helmed the fantastic Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - will be jumping behind the camera once more for the sequel.
Ben Stiller's Razzie Award nomination for worst actor hasn't put him off venturing into the cut throat world of gym ownership and dodgeball once again. Not only was Dodgeball hilarious, but it was made a comedy classic by the performances of Ben Stiller and Rip Torn. Most of the memorable lines from the movie were delivered by the two actors. It also made a tidy profit at the box office. Dodgeball was rumoured to have a budget of only $20 million and raked in over $114 million in America alone. I obviously could not be happier by the news. What do the Razzies know anyway?!
Now that Iron Man 3 is here, the next big summer blockbuster is Star Trek Into Darkness, so expect the marketing to go into warp speed.
Neal Moritz caught a lot of shit over the years for his Fast & Furious franchise, to the extent that even the Moritz-produced Torque outright mocked the franchise after it was a mere two movies old. Until 2011, The Fast & The Furious was a joke to most, but then Fast Five changed the game completely.
After teasing audiences with the possibility that the contentious Rose Garden enthusiast Mel Gibson would direct The Expendables 3, series creator Sylvester Stallone has revealed that a calmer and more untested Australian will helm the picture.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier charts Steve Rogers continued troubles in adjusting to the modern world, while a face from the past threatens to destroy everything. Being set in the here and now, naturally SHIELD are going to be involved. Namely, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury.
The Marvel sequel is currently filming and we have already seen one batch of revealing set photos. These images highlighted Cap's new costume and Black Widow's new hairstyle. Important stuff, I'm sure you will agree.
