Last night, I finally saw Incredibles 2 at the local drive-in theater. While this already provides the tenuous car connection necessary for me to write about it on Jalopnik, it turns out Pixar’s latest creation is filled with dope vehicles that deserve recognition.
Let’s be honest: even for a series of movies based on a line of plastic toys, the Transformers movies have generally sucked, pretty dramatically. So, my expectations for this new Bumblebee movie are pretty low. That said, there’s been some decisions that have given me the barest bit of hope: Bumblebee is a Volkswagen…
You’d think that if anyone would be able to crack the problem of flying cars, it’d be Einstein, right? I mean, after all, you don’t have to be some kind of Copernicus to know that Einstein’s a real Einstein. Even so, it seems improbable. That’s what makes this recently re-discovered film of Albert Einstein flying…
Are you excited for the weekend? Do you have any big plans? Whether or not you do, find time to watch Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie steal cars in the Gone In 60 Seconds remake this weekend for Jalopnik Movie Club!
Did you enjoy our review of the original 1969 The Italian Job last week? Well, good news! We’re watching the 2003 remake this week, which is also called The Italian Job despite being mostly set in Los Angeles.
Are you excited for the weekend? Do you have any big plans? Whether or not you do, find time to watch 1969's The Italian Job this weekend for Jalopnik Movie Club!
Stunt driving is an extremely intense, high pressure and dangerous profession, but it’s extremely rewarding for both the audiences that get to enjoy the crazy action on screen and the people that get to do the driving.
Movies have been around just about as long as the motorcar, so it’s only natural that there would end up being a lot of cars in a lot of movies! We at Jalopnik love arguing about cars, and we love arguing about movies. So, we figured it’s about time we started arguing about cars in movies.
In December 1977, Steve McQueen wrote the owner of one of two Mustangs used in the iconic chase scene from Bullitt. “Again,” McQueen wrote, “I would like to appeal to you to get back my ‘68 Mustang.” But he was rebuffed and, for nearly 40 years, the car pretty much disappeared.
Last year wasn’t so great for cars in movies, but 2017 more than made up for it. Here’s a rough list of our favorite cars in the movies that came out this year.
If “Ocean’s 11 but rednecks and NASCAR” sounds appealing to you, then you’ll be interested to find out that the director of Ocean’s 11 is making Logan Lucky, another heist movie but with dumb, slightly offensive southern stereotypes plotting to rob Charlotte Motor Speedway during the Coca Cola 600.
Edgar Wright is one of the most distinct directors working today, tackling the zombie, buddy cop, video game, and superhero genres. Now focusing he’s made what should be an epic heist movie with plenty of insane car chases in this year’s Baby Driver. Check out an exclusive video on how the actors prepared for their…
Gloriously wedge-shaped and with a starring role in Back to the Future, the DMC-12 is one of the most iconic cars there is. But perhaps what isn’t as well-known is the story behind the company’s founder, the late John DeLorean. Fear not, though: there’s a movie about him called Driven in the works.
Most film directors will probably tell you they studied Hitchcock and some weird Russian movies growing up before they made it big time. Edgar Wright, director of movies like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, was cutting together car chase compilations on VHS.
Many people know of movie director Edgar Wright for the cult hit Shaun of the Dead. For me, my favorite movie ever is Wright’s tragically underappreciated buddy-cop satire movie Hot Fuzz from 2007. Now he’s doing a movie about a baby that’s a bank heist getaway driver, which is perfect.
Charlize Theron has been a Jalopnik fixture for awhile now, showing up in good and great movies including The Italian Job reboot, Mad Max: Fury Road, and this year’s The Fate of the Furious, where she plays a super no good cyber hacking person who turns cars into zombies. But the first trailer for her other action…
It’s taken a good 24 years, but Hollywood has finally accepted the magic, mystery, and glory that was the Geo Storm, and has seen fit to make a blockbuster film all about the little cheap yet sporty crap-rocket. Based on this teaser trailer for Geostorm, it looks like they really do understand the raw power of the Geo…
If you want to feel old, the Coen brothers’ phenomenal dark comedy/murder mystery Fargo turns 20 today. It’s great for a ton of reasons: the accents, Frances McDormand’s quietly badass police chief character, and TruCoat.
Top Gear, as we know it, is now off the air. A replacement show, with a new format and a different cast, is coming out God knows when. The original guys are making the transition to Amazon, but their show, too, seems like a long way off. So if you’re like me, you’re having withdrawals.
