‘Need For Speed 2’ Heads to the Starting Line

Furious 7 is the number one movie in the world, breaking box office records left and right. In a totally unconnected and hugely coincidental bit of news, a sequel to last year’s racing film Need For Speed is in the works from Electronic Arts and a bunch of Chinese partners. Get ready: Here comes Need For Speed: Second Gear! No? Okay, how about Need For Additional Speed? Wait, I’ve got it! 2 Need 2 Speed! Oh yeah, that’s the winner right there.

‘Furious 7’ Review: One Last Ride, and It’s a Good One

Furious 7 almost certainly won’t be the last Fast & Furious movie. But at times it feels like a series finale. There are numerous callbacks and homages to the franchise’s entire 15-year history. The setpieces are bigger and crazier than ever; it’s hard to imagine anyone topping them. And before the chases really get rolling, the mood is often downright mournful. Two different scenes are set in graveyards, and characters talk about taking “one last ride” together.

25 Incredible Movie-Inspired Tattoos

I don’t have any tattoos. I have trouble committing to a pair of shoes in the morning; committing to something that would stay on my body for the rest of my life would be impossible. Maybe that’s why I’m in awe of movie tattoos, and the lengths some folks go to to show their love of film. Forever! You’ve got to be a pretty big fan of a movie to plaster it across your chest for eternity. What if your tastes change? When I was 14, I was really into Police Academy. Can you imagine if 20 years later my wife woke up every morning to this etched into my back?

Jason Segel Is Working on a ‘Lego Movie’ Spinoff

The LEGO Movie proved audiences’ appetite for charming, mildly subversive animated movies about talking toys. Now Warner Bros. is testing that appetite with a whole line of LEGO movies. There already announced Ninjago film in 2016, a Lego Batman Movie in 2017, and The Lego Movie 2 in 2018. Per The Hollywood Reporter, that onslaught will also includes a fourth film, a LEGO spinoff titled The Billion Brick Race, which will be co-written and directed by Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Muppets’ Jason Segel.

‘Maggie’ Trailer: Get Ready For Schwarzenegger Versus Zombies

As one of the biggest Arnold Schwarzenegger nerds on the planet, I might be biased about this (okay I am definitely biased about this) but I think Maggie looks like one of the most interesting movies of the year. It’s a horror drama about a father trying to protect his daughter after she’s infected with some kind of zombie virus. The daughter is Abigail Breslin; the father is Schwarzenegger. Admittedly I don’t see (or hear) much of a family resemblance, but the themes this story touches on — parental responsibilities, broken families, an aging hero fighting against an increasing sense of irrelevance — jive perfectly with the stuff Schwarzenegger continues to explore throughout the latter half of his career.

Vivica A. Fox Will Return For ‘Independence Day 2’

When Bill Pullman dumped that big “We will not go quietly into the night!” speech at the end of Independence Day, he really wasn’t kidding. Even though Will Smith will not return, Independence Day 2 is still moving forward, like an enormous alien spaceship slowly approaching the Golden Gate Bridge. Late last night, Roland Emmerich tweeted the latest original Independence Day cast member to join the film:

The Russo Brothers Reportedly Close Deal to Direct ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Joss Whedon returned to make the sequel to The Avengers, but he’s also said that shooting Age of Ultron was “a nightmare,” and if it hasn’t officially been announced yet, it’s been pretty clear for a while that he would not return to direct the next Avengers saga, the two-part Infinity War in 2018 and 2019. The rumor for months had the Russo brothers, Joe and Anthony, replacing Joss after their very successful stint directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier and next year’s sequel, Captain America: Civil War, which will also feature Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and lead directly into Infinity War. Now Badass Digest says the rumor is basically confirmed. Says site editor Devin Faraci:

‘Deadpool’ Production Begins, Superhero Lineup Officially Confirmed

It’s fitting that Deadpool’s main super-power is his accelerated healing factor; you just can’t kill this guy. For years, they talked about making a Deadpool movie featuring Ryan Reynolds (who played a largely unrecognizable version of the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine). For years, Deadpool languished in development; long enough to kill most projects. But that damn healing factor kept Deadpool alive.
