Seemingly every Fast & Furious movie builds up to one moment: Vin Diesel fighting the big bad guy. Usually, that big bad guy is also, well, big—someone like the Rock or Jason Statham. And as cool as that moment usually is, a new video proves one word can make it so much better: lightsabers.
Fun fact: Jason Statham has kicked more people than he has punched people in his movies. I’m glad that information occupies a part of my brain, and I’m so glad that I can share that with you so that it’ll take up a wrinkle in your brain now too.
Forget that movie where Blake Lively hides from a shark on a rock. Give us, instead, Jason Fuckin’ Statham going up against a bloodthirsty, 60-foot-long Megalodon that’s somehow been chilling in the Mariana Trench for millions and millions of years.

Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig teams up with actress Melissa McCarthy once again for the new espionage comedy Spy. McCarthy plays a CIA analyst who snags her first mission in the field. As it turns out, spying isn't easy — though it is pretty funny.
Neill Blonkamp's first movie, District 9, was a sardonic, gut-punching masterpiece. His new movie, Elysium, is just a crazy over-the-top action movie. There's none of the depth or complexity of District 9, but there are cyborgs punching each each other in space. And that's awesome.

Total Film asked a wide variety of actors and directors if they'd like to be involved in J.J. Abrams' upcoming Episode VII. As it turns out, yes, most actors would like to be part of a movie that will likely make $1 billion... except for Jason Statham, who is far too important to lower himself to Ewok-level.
There's a must-read interview with Jason Statham in the new issue of Details, in which he explains succinctly why greenscreen effects totally suck:
As you can probably guess from their movies, Crank: High Voltage directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have sort of a different filmmaking philosophy that's as dangerous and awesome as what they produce.

We shared a few minutes with Jason Statham's main Crank lady, and she spilled on upping the insanity-sex ante from the original, beating up Bai Ling, and a possible third Crank movie.
Crank 2's script may have been the "most offensive" Jason Statham ever read - but that was before costar Bai Ling rewrote it. Bai told us about catfights, upskirts and the craziest movie ever. Spoilers!
The brand new Crank High Voltage spot shows the not-dead-yet Chev Chelios sporting a robotic heart with the battery power of one hour. When the power's out, it's time to taste a power cable.
The number one question on everyone's mind with Crank 2 is, How the heck is Chev still alive and kicking? This trailer lays it all on the line.
Pain, violence, gross pulsing veins — yep, Crank 2 is delivering all the goods I want from this cracked-out Jason Statham flick. Check out each poster separately below.
