Graduation season is upon us. Across the nation, countless hungover students are sitting through long and drawn-out speeches that stress the importance of working hard, integrity... blah blah blah. And dotted throughout the sea of monochromatic graduation caps and gowns, bright spots of color catch the light like…
When Fast and Furious star Paul Walker died tragically and suddenly in 2013, he was in the middle of filming the seventh installment of the franchise, Furious 7. The event left the fate of the movie up in the air for a while, but eventually the crew was able to complete filming with the help of Paul’s brothers, Cody…
Yes, you read that headline right: An animated Fast and Furious show. Personally, I don’t even need to know what it’s about, nor do I very much care, but I guess I should go ahead and find out for your sake. Since most of you aren’t die-hard fans like I am.
Here at Jalopnik, we get a lot of press releases, marketing pitches, spam and emails. Most of them I half-heartedly archive, but one caught my eye today: a pitch with the subject line “David Leitch to direct Fast & Furious spin-off starring Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham.” And I got very excited because I initially and…
Does life imitate art or does art imitate life? Well, when it comes to Fast and Furious movies and the people who love them, the line between movie and reality seems to get a bit blurred. And you know what? I totally get it.
Paul Walker starred in most of the Fast and Furious movies until his shocking and untimely death in a fiery crash in 2013. Today, he’s remembered as a dedicated member of the F&F family, as a father, and as a deeply enthusiastic car guy when the cameras were off. Those aspects of his life will be the subject of a new…
I really did not think people needed to be told this, but apparently they do: Movies aren’t real and watching a Fast and Furious movie does not suddenly make you a drift king or a champion street racer. Sheesh.
Dude, look! DK’s ride is for sale!
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.
Well, isn’t this some good and happy Monday news!
Meadow Walker, the daughter of Fast & Furious franchise star Paul Walker, has settled the lawsuit against Porsche concerning her father’s death in 2013, according to The Blast.
You know those really awkward moments in movies where you, as the viewer, actually feel embarrassed that you’re watching them? Moments that make you cringe so hard that you feel like you’re about to turn yourself inside out? Well, Overdrive as a whole felt that way: a cringey, cheap and flat discount version of Redline
If you’ve been following along with our Fast and Furious coverage, then you’ll know that I will die defending those movies. I love everything about them: the bad acting, the science-bending stunts and the bullet-proof plot lines. And now Turn 10 Studios has announced a The Fate of the Furious car pack for the upcoming …
You guys are familiar with the “Everything Wrong With” film critiques that CinemaSins puts out, correct? They are typically on point and bring up thoughtful criticism about the films they review. But here’s the thing about the review on The Fate of the Furious: they completely missed the point of the movie.
Earlier this year, the eighth installment of the greatest franchise ever created hit theaters. The Fate of the Furious was fast-paced, grandiose and filled with explosions. Scott Eastwood was in it. He’s in this new movie, too, called Overdrive, which also has cars and explosions but, strangely, seems to have nothing…
I’ve watched the first Fast and Furious movie enough times now to basically know it line-for-line. And so the next logical step for this level of fandom is to recast the movie to include myself and my coworkers.
Jesse was such an underrated character in the first Fast & Furious movie, spouting such gems as “overnight parts from Japan” and his prayer to the car gods. Sadly, he didn’t survive to the sequels. But a shop in Canada recreated his car, and the stoke is strong with nostalgia all around here.
Quick cuts, fast shifts and engines at full chat: it’s not hard to make a slow car look fast. I swear this is how they do it in movies. Just ask Car Bros.
Look, we all know the Fast And Furious movies are not about “realism” in any sense whatsoever. But sheesh, another five seconds of proofreading could have saved this DVD box from eternal embarrassment.
It’s comedians, in cars, pulling heists and street racing. And getting coffee.
