Not sure you were aware of this, but Fast & Furious 6 will apparently involve some slick cars.
A crop of nine new pictures from behind the scenes of the latest fast/furious adventure is making the rounds online, and it includes many automobiles to clear up any possible confusion.
It's not all cars, though. We also get not one but two images featuring "franchise Viagra" Dwayne T.R. Johnson, a look at Paul Walker, and even the Fast 6 tattoo of an unidentified crewmember.
Not many novelty street-racing movies with plots eerily similar to Point Break spawn five sequels, but the sixth installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise is but a few months from squealing into theaters.
With a Super Bowl TV spot kicking off the promotional effort for this summer's demolition derby today, Universal Pictures has unveiled the first official one-sheet and, in doing so, revealed that this latest sequel is entitled Fast & Furious 6.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is a movie star.
Actors disappear into their characters and the world of their films. Riding their charisma, movie stars dictate both and are, to a certain extent, themselves onscreen. The almost eight years Schwarzenegger spent as the improbable Governor of California meant that he was limited exclusively to brief cameo roles, but now that his gubernatorial tenure is over and he's kept his head low after a public scandal, Arnold Schwarzenegger is once again properly starring in action movies.
In The Last Stand, Schwarzenegger plays a small town sheriff who wrangles the town's eccentrics to stop a wanted drug lord from making it to the U.S./Mexico border. IAR's Jami Philbrick participated in the movie's press conference, and we'll have plenty more The Last Stand goodies coming your way closer to its January 18th release. Today, we're looking further into the future. While promoting his first cinematic vehicle since Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Schwarzenegger shed some light on his new Conan adventure, the Twins sequel Triplets, and even the possibility of teaming up with fellow muscle-mountain Dwayne Johnson.
In the last weekend of April, Fast Five opened to a huge $86.2 million, ensuring that we would see a sixth entry in the Fast and Furious franchise sooner as opposed to later, particularly given that star Vin Diesel and producer Neal H. Moritz have publicly stated their intent to continue vigorously milking this cash cow. Universal Studios has announced a release date for as-yet untitled Fast and Furious 6, so presuming we survive the imminent Mayan apocalypse, we can look forward to more automotive mayhem on May 24, 2013.
By now, you're probably well aware that Fast Five director Justin Lin is attached to direct a fifth Terminator film that will see 63 year-old monosyllabic actor and former bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to the indestructible franchise. Though the potential film does not yet have a studio or a screenwriter, there are naturally plenty of unsubstantiated rumors. Not only that, but Lin's desire to make a sixth Fast/Furious picture adds some uncertainty, too. Well, Lin himself has commented on his plans on the film, elaborating on where it will fit into both the Terminator mythology and his own busy schedule.
