Idris Elba is in final negotiations to play the main villain in “Hobbs and Shaw,” the “Fast and Furious” spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.
Lingering beef results in one big absence from the grand opening of Universal Studios' new attraction in Orlando, Fla.

As millions of moviegoers now know, The Fate of the Furious pairs Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson’s Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw on a mission to stop Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto. As you may remember, Shaw is the man responsible for Han’s death in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift — although, in the twisted timeline of the series, this wasn’t “revealed” until the end of Fast & Furious 6. A new piece in the Los Angeles Times addresses this perplexing about-face for Dom, who’s nothing if not consumed with loyalty to family. While it seems like this is a glaring inconsistency, cast and crew members seem to be indicating that perhaps Han will factor in some way in future installments.
Warning: This post contains big spoilers for The Fate of the Furious. Contrary to what the early trailers have shown (and what Vin Diesel has suggested), it’s not Cipher’s kiss that has Dom under her spell. Rather, she’s secured his services by kidnapping…well, his kid — a baby boy brought into this world by former flame Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky), the Brazilian police officer who temporarily filled the Letty-sized hole in Dom’s heart back when his longtime lover (and, as it later turned out, wife) was missing and presumed dead.
It’s hard to believe it has been 16 years since the Fast and Furious crew first hit the big screen. The series about street racing has produced eight feature-length films and two short films and has become one of the biggest movie franchises of all time. Despite numerous cast changes, turmoil on set, and the unprecedented tragedy of Paul Walker’s untimely death in 2013, this series just keeps on going. With The Fate of the Furious opening on April 14, we thought we’d take a look back at all eight of the movie premieres.
The sequel — which opens in theaters on Friday — features a sequence (seen in its latest trailer) in which Charlize Theron’s cyberterrorist Cipher and her team hack the high-tech electronics in a fleet of newer cars on the streets of New York City. Innocent drivers suddenly lose control of their rides and parked cars come to creepy life, as Cipher operates them remotely, sending swarms of vehicles after a limo carrying a high-level Russian official. “There’s thousands of cars in this city,” says Cipher.

Earlier this year, director Scott Derrickson tweeted: “Wish more online diversity activists had aggressively celebrated ROGUE ONE. Praise can be as effective as criticism.” That’s ‘Doctor Strange’ director Scott Derrickson, himself no stranger to issues of diversity after he was accused of ‘whitewashing’ by casting Tilda Swinton as an Asian character.
The eighth episode in the fuel-injected blockbuster franchise ‘The Fast and the Furious’ is just over four months away – and now we have our first brief glimpse of the action. The troubled seventh film in the series managed to rise from the tragedy of star Paul Walker’s untimely death to become the biggest ‘Fast &Furious’ by far, grossing $1.516 billion worldwide (making it the sixth highest grossing film of all time at present). Naturally this very brief glimpse of the eighth film doesn’t give us any huge insights plot-wise, but we do get brief glimpses of most of the key stars – Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and the new villain of the piece Charlize Theron.
The cast and crew of Fast 8 would like to remind us: It’s all about family. In a Facebook message to commemorate the end of filming, the cast of the next Fast and Furious film (coming to theaters in April 2017) put their recent disagreements aside and extended a big thank-you to the actors, producers, crew, fans, and of course, the late Paul Walker.
In-production blockbuster sequel ‘Fast & Furious 8′ is currently making history by shooting in Havana, Cuba - and now we have an on-set video to prove it. It’s the first time a Hollywood blockbuster has been able to shoot on the Communist-ruled Caribbean island, whose infamously troubled relationship with the US has relaxed in recent months, notably with a state visit from President Obama. The team on the high-octane sequel shared the brief video on Instagram, noting, “#F8 is making history in Cuba.
Nowadays, being really, really ridiculously good looking just isn’t enough for supermodels, they want to be multi-hyphenate model-singer-actor-fragrance-peddlers too.
Vin Diesel thought Furious 7 deserved to win Best Picture at the Oscars, a statement that was largely laughed off despite the sequel’s monster box-office haul. Director James Wan agreed that “See You Again” was snubbed by the Academy, but he took larger issue with the film being left out of the Best Visual Effects category, particularly for what VFX house Weta Digital was able to accomplish in seamlessly keeping Walker’s character Brian O'Connor “alive” until the film’s poignant end. “One was for the song, and the other one was for the visual effects.
