With all the Fast & Furious 6 character posters we've seen over the last several months, we've been waiting to see just what kind of car Dwayne Johnson would be paired with on a poster of his own.
The Luke Hobbs character poster has finally arrived, and it doesn't disappoint.
Question: Where do all roads lead?
That's according to the posters for next month's Fast & Furious 6, two new examples of which are now making the rounds online.
The action lunacy hinted at in a new TV spot for this summer's Fast & Furious 6 has us thinking about how far this franchise has come.
Synopsis: "New Year's Eve" celebrates love, hope, forgiveness, second chances and fresh starts, in intertwining stories told amidst the pulse and promise of New York City on the most dazzling night of the year
Actress Taryn Manning is clearly no stranger to starring in films with musical themes but she is also an accomplished singer-songwriter in her own right. The actress is best known for her roles in the Oscar winning hip-hop films 8 Mile and Hustle & Flow, as well as starring opposite Britney Spears in her film debut Crossroads. But Manning has also licensed her own music to movies like Mean Girls, The Hot Chick, and The Italian Job. Now the actress/musician returns with a new film that seems tailor-made for her unique talents entitled The Perfect Age of Rock ‘n’ Roll, which opens in theaters on August 5th.
Written and directed by Scott Rosenbaum, the film revolves around a group of childhood friends who reunite their former band and must come face to face with their own “rock ‘n’ roll demons” (sex, drugs & booze) while on a cross-country trip that compels them to face their past, present, and future. In addition to Manning, the film features an excellent cast of actors including Kevin Zegers (Fozen), Jason Ritter (W.), Lauren Holly (Dumb & Dumber), Lukas Haas (Brick), and living legend Peter Fonda (Easy Rider). I recently had a chance to speak with Taryn Manning about The Perfect Age of Rock ‘n’ Roll and we discussed the film; it’s themes, music’s infamous “27 Club,” the recent passing of Amy Winehouse, Manning’s musical lineage, and working with the great Peter Fonda. Here is what she had to say:
If you're familiar with Michael Rapaport, it's a consistently solid, dependably funny character actor, not as a documentarian. With Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest, however, Rapaport makes his directorial debut. The doc, which premiered at Sundance this year, is all about the legendary alternative hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest, and it has earned rave reviews. It focuses principally on a 2006 reunion tour between Phife Dawg, Q-Tip, Jarobi White, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, but as the first trailer indicates, it is also a thoughtful examination of their music and impact. Do yourself a favor and check out the newly released trailer, complete with an intro from Rapaport himself.
Much like Vin Diesel's character in The Fast and the Furious franchise, I live my life a quarter mile at a time. That's why these two fun-sized behind-the-scenes featurettes from Fast Five are just my style. The videos provide our best look so far at the team-up film, which features pretty much every major surviving character from the previous four installments, as well as new addition Dwayne Johnson. Of interest to action aficionados: the featurettes contain glimpses at the brawl between the two bald musclemen. Check out the videos, including interviews with Diesel, Johnson, and Paul Walker, thanks to Yahoo! Movies and Movieweb.
The first one sheet poster for Fast Five confidently used negative space and color to sell the primary ingredients of The Fast and The Furious franchise: fast cars first, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker second. A new poster, which debuted on the movie's facebook page (via Cinemablend), retains the negative space, but replaced zippy cars and pretty colors with the entire cast awkwardly photoshopped together around some cars. Some cars that aren't even driving, which is neither fast, nor furious. Take a look.
Universal Pictures has given all you Fast and the Furious fans a treat and unveiled the official synopsis for Fast Five, the fifth - yes, fifth! - film in the highly-lucrative series. The film, which features returning stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker as well as imposing newcomer to the franchise Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, will hit theaters next summer.
