Forget every Michael Bay or Fast and Furious whatever you’ve ever seen. This Kollywood scene from last year is more over-the-top amazing than any of them.
There’s a new Star Wars.
The new Suicide Squad movie is getting a ton of buzz, but what’s that crazy purple sports car the Joker drives in it? Turns out it’s something pretty unusual called a Vaydor: a custom made body mounted to the chassis of a ten-year-old Infiniti.
I have a good idea that you can NOT steal, but which you may hear. Are you ready? Here it goes:
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just posted a picture of his Fast 8 character’s vehicle: a Ram truck on treads with what looks like a weaponized farm implement hanging off the back. Looks like the studio released a few more vehicle shots from the Icelandic snow scene as well.
The Fast & Furious franchise has evolved way past highway hijinks in Honda Civics. We’ve known the 8th movie is shooting on location in Iceland and Cuba, but these behind-scenes clips give us a good idea of just how much they’re actually blowing up. Spoiler alert: a lot.
Channing Tatum, Katherine Heigl, Daniel Craig, Riley Keough, Adam Driver and Seth MacFarlane have all signed up to be in Logan Lucky: a heist film set at NASCAR’s Charlotte Motor Speedway due out in 2017. So yeah, Ocean’s 11 plus NASCAR, get it?
On June 22 the very first Fast and Furious movie, actually called The Fast And The Furious, will be back in about 1,500 movie theaters around America in honor of the movie’s 15th anniversary. Insert car-related excitement pun!
Jason Bourne knows who he is now. And he still drives like we all wish we could– unleashing motorized hell on Las Vegas, chasing a Bearcat SWAT truck in a manual-shift Dodge Charger.
Vin Diesel and friends are filming the eighth Fast & Furious movie on Iceland’s frozen Lake Mývatn right now. In a strange and sad happenstance, it sounds like one of their styrofoam ice-props blew away and hit a live horse so hard that the animal had to be euthanized.
The Jeep Renegade is a lovely car that totally pulls off its “off-roader” costume. But Batman driving it through an action scene with a dinky-ass blinker light on the roof is officially trying too hard.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
