Netflix announced today that it’s teaming up with Dreamworks Animation to create a spinoff show based on the popular feature film franchise, The Fast and the Furious. Hint: It’s about family.
The heroes of The Fast and the Furious series have taken on the Yakuza, hordes of self-driving cars, and a goddamn submarine. Given that each Fast & Furious movie has gotten increasingly more insane, there’s only one way the franchise’s next installment is going to be able to top its predecessors: by blasting off.
It probably won’t but it’s not totally, hypothetically, 100 percent off the table. And that’s good enough for us.
Thanks to YouTube, the easiest way to score your 15 minutes of fame is to buy an expensive machine, master its capabilities, and film yourself using it. Some go with high-speed cameras, while others go with hydraulic presses. William Osman, on the other hand, went the laser cutter route, and used one to make a…
The sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, opens this weekend. As Universal started to screen the film, one minor, beautiful detail became the focal point for discussion online: the fact that Christian Grey’s childhood bedroom has a Chronicles of Riddick poster in it.
It’s almost the weekend, time to jump into it like you were Vin Diesel skiing in a jungle.
“Did you ever think you’d betray your family the way you did today?” the villainous Cipher—played by Charlize Theron with extremely questionable white braids, which verge on dreads—asks Vin Diesel in the first trailer for The Fate of the Furious a.k.a. Fast and Furious 8.
On Sunday, Mark Zuckerberg interviewed Vin Diesel on Facebook Live before they took the stage together at the Breakthrough Awards—Silicon Valley’s own sort of Nobel prize-Oscars hybrid, which gave $25 million to scientists this year.
You may wonder what the man who’s able to breathe every possible shade of meaning to “I am Groot” thinks about having to voice the character as a tiny sapling. And the answer is that Vin Diesel thinks there’s a lot of differences between baby Groot on Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and full-grown Groot in the original, and…
I’m confused. Vin Diesel has a new movie coming out. In it, he rides a jet ski motorcycle. That’s a motorcycle... that turns into a jet ski, and that makes it pretty obvious the movie should be called Jet Ski Motorcycle: The Movie. Apparently, though, it’s something called xXx: Return of Xander Cage.
One of the coolest things about the first Guardians of the Galaxy was how director James Gunn had Vin Diesel voicing Groot. The character has two lines so to bring in an actor with a voice and presence like Diesel gave everything gravitas. But, things may be changing for Vol. 2.
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.
The filmmakers behind 2018's Avengers: Infinity War probably aren’t ready to talk too much about its secrets but Vin Diesel doesn’t give a fuck. On Facebook Live, the voice of Groot revealed that, yes, he and the Guardians of the Galaxy will be in the next Avengers film.
Earlier this week we learned that Jet Li will join star Vin Diesel in director D.J. Caruso’s xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. Now, here’s more intriguing news: Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior, Furious 7) has signed on, too.
xXx: The Return of Xander Cage has added Jet Li to its cast, and our interest in Vin Diesel’s latest project just became exponentially stronger. While not much is known about the martial arts legend’s character—is he the main villain, or what?—he will definitely get to “square off” against Diesel’s Cage.
Is there anything Vin Diesel can’t will into existence? His 2009 return to the Fast and Furious fold helped turn that franchise into a monster. He’s got a xXx sequel on the way, and has already made two sequels to Pitch Black. Now, that latter world will expand into TV.
There are some action movies that just embrace the total absurdity of their own existence, and invite you to come along for a crazy silly ride. These are among my favorite sorts of movies out there, and I’m happy to report that The Last Witch Hunter is a pretty good addition to this canon.
Fantasy legend J.R.R. Tolkien means a lot of things to a lot of people. To Vin Diesel, what’s really inspiring about Tolkien is the way he writes about death. Tolkien is a touchstone for Diesel, and he was a huge influence on Diesel’s new film The Last Witch Hunter.
Long before Vin Diesel was Groot, he teased fans about joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So few thought saying a few words as a talking tree would be enough for the star. In a new interview with io9, Diesel teased something very different could be on the horizon.
Vin Diesel is an incredibly busy guy. He’s got The Last Witch Hunter coming out this month; a director just signed for Fast and Furious 8, and he’s long teased a return to the world of XXX, too. We recently spoke to Diesel about all those things and he offered up some new, exclusive, information.
