Here’s a quick spot of career advice for any readers in our audience who are—or might someday be—Fast And The Furious B-lister Tyrese Gibson: If you’ve reached a point in negotiations where the sentence “You can either have me in your movie, or The Rock, but not both” has passed your lips, we regret to inform you…
Two years ago, two pilots—Alan Purwin and Carlos Berl—were killed while working on Tom Cruise’s upcoming film American Made, after their plane crashed in the mountains of Colombia. (A third, pilot Jimmy Lee Greenwood, survived, but was left without feeling in the lower half of his body.) Over the course of the last…
You may already know what a BMW M2 with the performance package decals looks like. Here’s what it looks like on film, if you are so inclined.
A little over a year ago I bought a somewhat oddball old film camera from a British dude off Craigslist trying to unload his collection of, worryingly, the same kind of cameras I was buying up. Along with the camera, he gave me a free lens and a 1998 World Cup commemorative roll of FujiFilm. I’d been saving this…
Last week, I was on a flight to California, flipping through the various movies I could watch on the headrest. Boogie Nights was available. Great movie! Thing is, more than a few parts of it might have made the family sitting next to me a little uncomfortable.
Welcome to Titanic Thursday. It is what it sounds like—a day to talk about the 1997 Academy Award-winning film Titanic.
Suburban dirtballs of the 1980s are a lost culture, worthy of academic study, that disappeared abruptly, leaving mysterious artifacts for future generations to work over. Think of them as, say, the ancient Mayans, only with mullets.
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.
The 1970s is often called the era when the racing was dangerous and sex was safe, and no one lived that more than motorcycle racer and World Champion Barry Sheene. This new biopic seeks to capture his story to share it on the big screen.
Bumblebee, the Transformers Autobot based on a Chevy Camaro that started out as a toy and then became a savior of the Earth in a slew of horrible, mindless action films will be getting his/its own spin-off film, because Hollywood is dead and the Camaro is doing really well.
The little red Mini Cooper featured in the signature car chase from 2002's The Bourne Identity once had its own little corner on the Universal Studios lot. The fifth film in the franchise, tentatively titled “Bourne 5", is currently shooting.[Robert Taylor via Flickr, taken in 2005]
Stop motion artist PES just released Paper, a short film turned ad depicting just some of the iconic vehicles throughout Honda’s history. How many of the motorcycles, cars, boats, and planes can you name?
When you trace any of the extreme sports from the X-Games back, almost all roads lead to this man: Evel Knievel. He was the original dare devil - a man made famous for having no fear and taking no caution. Being Evel dives into his past, what drove him to pursue one more jump, and everyone he touched along the way.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. opens with a stylized newsreel depicting the rising tensions between the Communist East and Democratic West during the height of the Cold War, and a world that seemed to teeter on the edge of nuclear apocalypse. It then spends the next two hours depicting it as a funky good time. And it just…
There is a new trailer for SPECTRE, the upcoming Bond film, and it seems the quartermaster has been very busy arranging all sorts of vehicles for scenes from Mexico to Morocco, including planes, trains, and (mostly British) automobiles. Here is a handy breakdown with plenty of pretty pictures.
This neat concept trailer has been flying around the internet the last couple of days: it’s a story of a hover car racer who has to choose between his family and the potential for fame, and it features some pretty cool flying cars.
Most movies, especially big blockbuster action movies, look embarrassingly awkward when you strip away the CGI and special effects and expose it in real life. It’s because so much is fake these days! Not Mad Max: Fury Road though. That movie’s action sequences still look so bad ass in real life. Check it out.
Believe it or not, the James Bond movies have been around for just about fifty years now, spanning 23 films. Global Watch Shop has an nifty guide to all of the tactile gadgets of the British spy presented in the only way people view facts on the internet - an infographic!
You may think it strange, but I enjoy listening to the type of soundtrack music you might find on a film like Get Carter, Bullitt or The Ipcress File. Much crime drama TV produced during the ’70s used these films as their model, and a huge number were produced all requiring incidental music. Amazingly, this music was…
I’m not sure that CineFix included all the most visually awesome aerial dogfight scenes in their top 10 video for best dogfights of all time, but I do know that it’s always fun as hell to see two flying killer bird machines try to take down each other in an incredible array of skill, weaponry, quick reflexes and oh…
