Some movie franchises die harder than a Toyota Hilux, and as Vin Diesel announces the dates for the next three (!!!) Fast and Furious sequels to carry the franchise into the 2020s, it’s time for us to do our part by writing better scripts while they prepare their muscles lifting all those heavy NOS bottles.
It goes without saying that the next Bourne movie will take place after the last ones. At the end of 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, Jason Bourne went off the grid with his enemies assuming him dead. In 2016, he’ll be back, and Matt Damon recently talked about what’s happened in between.
Next year is already scheduled to have a bunch of great blockbusters. One, however, you’ve already seen, just never like this. Terminator 2: Judgment Day is been re-released in 3D for the film’s 25th anniversary.
The seventh Star Wars movie comes out this week (seventh!) and if you’re feeling a little behind, don’t worry: here’s how to catch up on the first few movies before the latest installment drops.
Even before Mad Max: Fury Road released (and promptly blew our socks off), Director George Miller was insistent that the film would best be viewed in black and white. After that version was sadly absent from the home release, we might be getting something even better: a chance to see the B&W version in theaters.
When the first Star Wars movie came out in 1977, Toyota had a Celica painted and sticker’d up with Darth Vader and friends (technically enemies, actually.) The car was given away, the creators got mired in legal trouble, and now that we’re riding a fresh wave of Star Wars PR somebody wants this thing back.
Movie awards season is upon us and the National Board of Review is first out of the gate with a huge, but amazing, surprise. They’ve named Mad Max: Fury Road the best picture of the year.
The James Bond movies and novels aren’t exactly short on weirdness—Bond’s villains tend to hatch crazy schemes that revolve around hypnotizing women to love chickens. But if you want real insanity, you have to reach beyond the movies and books.
Deeply questionable CGI. Continuity errors. Unrealistic stunts. These are the things that make automotive enthusiasts stand up in the middle of movies and shake their fists uncontrollably at the screen, or walk out. These ten movie blunders are the worst of the worst, as chosen by Jalopnik readers.
You might think a movie about faking the Moon landings would be mad enough—and especially once you throw in the idea of hiring Stanley Kubrick, director of 2001, to spearhead the project. But Moonwalkers looks much weirder than that.
Speed Sisters begins with a scene that feels like it could take place anywhere in the world: with humble hatchbacks and older BMWs ripping their way around an autocross course, blazing past bright orange cones while their drivers pull handbrakes to negotiate hairpin corners at speed.
It’s always fun to look back at movies set in the future and see what their vision of the future was. Even though it’s more a reflection of the time period the movie was made and their imagination is limited to what was around them, it’s cool to see what was right and what was totally off. Robert Jones made this…
I figured the crowdfunding campaign to make a sequel to the stoner classic cop movie Super Troopers was some kind of terrible, torturous prank. But they made more than twice their dollar goal, and here the actors are with cars and costumes filming for real!
I got an email from Michael Banovsky of Petrolicious with a link to what he described as a “surprisingly watchable” old doco. Somehow I ended up clicking on it and suddenly I’d consumed half an hour. Worth checking out even if you don’t speak Italian!
Land Rover is going to use the new James Bond movie to sell some cars because of course. This new trailer they cut together puts their Range Rover SVR and Defender crew cab in the limelight, and damn to these things look good attacking each other.
They don’t wear capes. They don’t have fancy suits of armor. They aren’t gods or aliens or scientific experiments gone wrong. They just drive cars. Really fast cars. But the characters of the hit Fast and the Furious movie franchise are superheroes, as much as any member of the Justice League or the Avengers—and their…
When people talk about the best, most perfect movies ever made, we all know the usual suspects: Citizen Kane, Chinatown, Casablanca. And I feel like Back to the Future should absolutely be on that list. The way this film is structured and feeds story to the audience is so seamless, it’s basically a clinic in how to…
We’re only a few days away from the day Marty and Doc arrived in 2015 and things are about to get very Back to the Future. Online, in stores, basically everywhere, fans will soon be celebrating the great film series.
I cannot imagine a better media campaign for an upcoming film than having the star repeatedly talk about how tired he is, how little he cares about the next film, and how he’ll only do it again for the money. Daniel Craig is the best possible salesman for Spectre.
