There is no car-filled franchise more widely known, widely loved and even widely reviled than the Fast and the Furious movies. Everyone has seen at least a couple of them. And today, the first film of the franchise celebrates its 15th anniversary. (You can catch it one more time on the big screen tonight.) Fifteen…
Open on an aerial shot of some famous skyline as an orchestral score sets the tone. Intercut dramatic slider shot of the grille and headlights as we hear the rumble of an old Chevy big block. Jump to a dark close-up of eyes as they gaze intensely, ever so slightly off the camera’s center. Engine revs as we see an…
By now, like most people on earth, you’ve probably seen Captain America: Civil War, a film where a simple misunderstanding leads to a gigantic fistfight at an airport. But what you may not have seen at that airport fight was one of the best movie Easter Eggs in a long time.
One of the best things about Batman as a superhero is that he actually has a need for a car. Superman just doesn’t need one, Spider-Man is too broke, Aquaman has the wrong address, Wonder Woman has that invisible jet, and on and on. Batman is unique in his need for a Batmobile, which is why it’s such a shame so many…
This summer both the DC Comics cinematic universe and the Marvel universe are going to war. Batman will fight Superman (with others), while team Tony Stark and team Captain America fight over America’s coveted macho superhero leadership. It should be awesome, but just how much collateral damage can we expect?
Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham and the rest of Universal’s Fast 8 crew is currently relocating to Iceland to blow up the peaceful island using multiple Ripsaw ATVs and armored trucks. Here are more of their stunt cars.
I might have been wrong about the plot of Vin Diesel’s Fast 8. As it turns out, the most furious film crew of them all is planning to blow up Iceland instead of just cruising around Manhattan, using custom built ATVs, military vehicles and heavily armored Dodge trucks. Our reader caught them at the port.
They say the Gotham City comes alive at night, and what better way to clown around town than in the back of a flat black taxicab, as set photos from the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice film reveal.
Perhaps you’ve already heard, but the American hero better known as P.W. Herman has his first actual new movie coming out since Big Top Pee-Wee back in 1988. Not too surprisingly, there looks to be a really interesting collection of cars in this new, Netflix-produced adventure.
Perhaps you’re familiar with the artwork of Scott Park. He takes famous cars from movies and TV shows and turns them into adorable cartoon prints. Now his stuff is back again, in animated form!
I lost count of just how many hours I spent on planes trying to get to where I needed to be to drive this car, but if Jaguar calls me again, I’m ready to fly to the moon and back for it, no problem. If it involves the Jaguar C-X75, the magical prototype supercar that stars in Spectre, I’m there.
Griff Tannen’s hover-converted BMW 633 CSi was actually a non-running 1976 model the film crew purchased for about 400 bucks from Germany. Today, she stays in first gear around Connecticut.
To be fair, so can your car, and it doesn’t even have to be an Aston Martin. But it sure as hell won’t do it this gracefully.
Being in SPECTRE is a huge deal for both Jaguar Land Rover and Aston Martin, and both companies did their best to supply the producers with the most amazing vehicles James Bond has ever seen. But they are for your eyes only.
Did you go see Fantastic Four this summer? No? Don’t worry, nobody else did either because apparently it was an epic dumpster fire and a new low for superhero movies. Here’s one way it could have been better: this sweet-ass flying FantastiVan. I need one of those HARD.
Have you always admired the giant sheepdog van from Dumb and Dumber, but felt as if the Mutt Cutts Shaggin’ Waggin could be improved somehow? By, perhaps, chopping off the roof and adding a loud sound system? Dream no longer. It’s real, it’s spectacular, and it’s for sale.
What is the point of life? Is it all ultimately meaningless? Yes. But there are ways to be happy. Like watching this video mashup of The Cannonball Run with Mad Max: Fury Road. That is all you need to be happy.
