12 Modern Day Movie-Duo BFFs

May 8th, 2014 5:00pm EDT
12 Modern Day Movie-Duo BFFs
We all need a friend to lie on now when faced with life’s toughest hurdles are thrust in our paths, and movie characters are no different. Friends provide wisdom and solace, a much needed supporting ear and voice to guide us through familiar relationship and financial problems.

And while movie characters' problems are much more dangerous, with alien evils, mutant xenophobia and death match competitions threatening their livelihood, they still couldn't have succeeded without the dedicated support of their secondary cast. These characters may have been well written, but they didn’t fully com...

February 6th, 2014 1:03pm EST
Fast & Furious Nissan Skyline GT-R R34
The Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 Paul Walker made famous in Fast & Furious can be yours - if you have $1.4 million to spend.

The car was originally listed for $400,000, but the price skyrocketed after the death of Walker back in November. The Wrap reports 50% of the proceeds will go towards Walker's Reach Out Worldwide charity.

The German seller claims the automobile is the real and promises the purchaser will also get the least agreement from Universal Pictures to prove its authenticity. Daily News has requested comment from Universal Pictures but has yet to receive a reply.

Paul Walker's 'Fast & Furious' Character To Be Written Out Of Se
Paul Walker’s character in the “Fast & Furious” franchise will be retired, not killed off, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Universal Pictures will use remaining footage of Walker’s character, Brian O’Conner, to complete his storyline.

Rather than kill off O’Conner, the script will write him out of the film. He will be "retired in a way... (which) will satisfy fans of the franchise and make use of the existing footage of Walker.

"(Movie bosses) devised a plan to tweak the existing script so that Walker would remain a part of the story but could be written out, allowing the franchis...

'Fast & Furious' Producers Post Touching Tribute Video To Late Star Paul Walker

December 5th, 2013 11:12pm EST
Fast & Furious
A two-minute tribute video to actor Paul Walker has been created by the producers of the Fast & Furious film franchise.

Walker starred in five of the six films in the series and had been working on the seventh when the car he was riding in with a friend over the weekend lost control and hit a tree, bursting into flames and killing both men instantly.

Filmmakers behind the series posted a video montage of film clips featuring Walker to YouTube on Wednesday. The tribute is set to Diddy - Dirty Money's "Coming Home" and features several shots of Walker's infectious smile. Things slow down to...

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Ike Maka' (2.09)

November 15th, 2011 2:08am EST
Hawaii Five-O
An admission: I love the Fast & Furious films. So give me Hawaii Five-0 taking after the Fast & Furious films, and I'm a happy girl.

The show opens big, with Honolulu Police cruisers trying to catch a speedy flame-red set of wheels and finding a whole host of beautiful cars inside locked shipping containers. One of them has a dead body sans fingerprints in the trunk. This allows us to use Hawaii's car culture as the episode's backdrop. (It also means Lauren German gets primped as if she's trying to channel Michelle Rodriguez - if Rodriguez's Letty had driven a bait car.) There are ...

Trailer Talk: 'Halloween II,' 'Taking Woodstock' & More

HALLOWEEN II
I have not had the chance to see "Inglourious Basterds" yet, but I'm hoping to catch it in the next couple of days. From the people I have spoken with that have seen it already, it's supposed to be really entertaining.

Other films in my current backlog include "District 9" which I've only heard positive feedback about, and the Paul Giamatti comedy "Cold Souls."

Two of the movies premiering this week are horror movies, and the other two are comedies. One of the films is another sequel annoyingly titled to resemble the first movie's title much like "Fast & Furious." Arriving at the b...

Tyrese Gibson Ready For 'Fast & Furious 5'

Tyrese Gibson
It took until the fourth Fast & Furious to get Vin Diesel back. By then, the family had grown in the two intermediate sequels. The gang wants to get Tyrese Gibson, star of 2 Fast 2 Furious, back for a fifth one and Gibson is ready to get behind the wheel.

"Listen, love Fast and the Furious, love the numbers it did, love the cast," Gibson said. "If my phone rings for 5 I'm right there. They were all beating the door down to try to get me in in 4. Would've loved to have been a part of it. Didn't work out for whatever reason so my phone is wide open for 5 and I would love to do it."

'Fast & Furious': A Love Story

April 17th, 2009 9:31am EDT
Fast & Furious
When I first heard that yet another installment of the "Fast & Furious" was coming out, I stifled a yawn and made a mental note to catch it on TBS 6 months later. But after watching the trailer and seeing a good amount of car chases, explosions, and Vin Diesel looking delicious as ever in that wife beater of his…I was convinced to see it in theaters. What I saw wasn't your run-of-the-mill action flick, but dare I say it, something deeper? The storyline is well crafted, with moments of laughable dialogue, but that's to be expected. I never saw a love and revenge plot coming out of a test...

Hyper-Masculine Action Films Are Violent, Ridiculous & So Much Fun

April 15th, 2009 12:52pm EDT
Fast & Furious
According to Hollywood and its demographic cinema box office soothsayers, the only people who have the ability to purchase tickets to and actively watch an action film are men and teenage boys. They believe that women, for the most part, cannot watch these films - unless their boyfriends, husbands, male friends, etc. have explicitly gave them entrance to the theater or made the magical DVD player start the film.

Either way, it is assumed that men are the ones with the keys to the magic that is "boom and vroom." Hollywood types with these lofty gendered assumptions are most definite...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

April 13th, 2009 8:57am EDT
17 Again
I must admit that two weeks ago, I grossly underestimated how popular "Fast & Furious" would be. The film captured the title of highest grossing opening weekend for a car-themed movie by taking in $72.5 million. I think it's important to note this, because I believe I'm an excellent judge of movies, but I admit the movies I recommend will not always reflect the average American movie patron's opinion.

Vin Diesel: Action Star, Father, Proud Geek & Heartthrob

April 3rd, 2009 9:16am EDT
Vin Diesel
The first thing anyone should know about Vin Diesel, AKA Mark Sinclaire Vincent, is that he is a huge Dungeons and Dragons nerd. The actor admitted with charming self-deprecation that he has been a fan of the game for over two decades. It is hard to imagine Riddick pretending to be a dwarf mage, but somewhat sweet and unique at the same time.

Born in New York City 41 years ago, Vin is biracial and was raised by his stepfather and mother with his three siblings. His mixed racial origins came back in a big way early in his career when Vin wrote, directed, and starred in a film called "M...
