Whether it’s through the series’ approach to physics, plot mechanics, or paying continued homage to the late Paul Walker, all things are possible through the Fast Saga. That’s the attitude that Vin Diesel and the entire family have when it comes to telling the right sort of story to close out this final quarter-mile. So Meadow Walker might want to prepare herself for the ultimate gear shift, as she might become a member of the Toretto family after all.
We’re used to Kevin Hart being the main source of laughs in pretty much all his projects, although sometimes it’s a close call when working with other big name talents. In Fatherhood, though, Hart takes a back seat to some of his co stars when it comes to the funny moments. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Hart says that he didn’t want to be the guy responsible for all the comedy, and even when he did throw out a joke it was very light. Said the Jumanji star,
It’s understandable why Red Notice is such a big deal for Dwayne Johnson. In addition to starring in the film, he’s also one of the film’s producers, so he’s been hands on with many of the details regarding the unexpectedly complicated production schedule. After filming started in January 2020, Red Notice was shut down in March to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. At the time, Dwayne Johnson shared a video, in which he encouraged the cast and crew and wished them well during the film’s hiatus.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Mitch Buchannon)
As Mitch Buchannon, the leader of an elite squad of lifeguards, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays the lead character in 2017’s Baywatch. Following his time in the WWE, The Rock’s acting career began with The Mummy Returns and The Scorpion King. From there, Johnson starred in Walking Tall, Doom, The Game Plan, Faster, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Pain & Gain, Hercules, Central Intelligence, Rampage, Skyscraper, and San Andreas. The wrestler-turned-actor also appeared in Be Cool, Southland Tales, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Fighting with My Family, and the Jumanji movies. Furthermore, The Rock plays Luke Hobbs in Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, Furious 7, The Fate of the Furious, and the starring vehicle, Hobbs & Shaw. Additionally, on TV, Johnson starred in Ballers.
Next, Dwayne Johnson stars in Jungle Cruise. He’ll also appear in Red Notice. Currently, Johnson is filming Black Adam. He’ll also lend his voice to DC League of Super-Pets. Furthermore, Johnson is signed on star in The King. He also currently produces and stars in NBC’s autobiographical sitcom, Young Rock, which premiered earlier this year.
Initially meant to be a 2020 release, the action movie follow-up starring Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, and Salma Hayek has been delivered to theaters about four years after its predecessor, and according to Variety it has pulled in $11.6 million in its first Friday-to-Sunday. That number was big enough to push it ahead of A Quiet Place Part II‘s ticket sales, totaling $9.4 million in its third week, and the total increases to $17 million when you factor in its mid-week premiere – but the folks at Lionsgate may not be celebrating too raucously. The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard was made with a reported $70 million budget (which is on par with the first film), and its start is just slow enough to make one question whether or not it will ultimately be considered profitable/successful (The Hitman’s Bodyguard made nearly double what the first one did when it opened).
We don’t have too many details about the upcoming series, so it’s not clear if, or how, Alice might fit into the picture. We do know that the Resident Evil Netflix adaptation will feature two separate timelines, one of which follows teenage twins Jade and Billie Wesker through a pre-zombie apocalypse journey in Raccoon City. The second timeline will take place 16 years into the future and focus on a now-adult Jade. Whether or not Milla Jovovich’s Alice would fit into that second timeline remains to be seen, but the important part is that it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
Flula Borg describes his experience watching The Suicide Squad as a “fever dream,” and he is still in disbelief that he was a part of such a project. Borg calls the film a “magical genius adventure ride,” which is really interesting knowing what we know about the violent nature of DC’s latest film. But it’s clear that the actor is in awe of what James Gunn was able to do, and most of us would probably be geeking out too, if we had been able to star in a movie like this.
Hold on, take a minute to think about some of your favorite action stars. It’s okay, I’ll wait…. got them? Chances are Liam Neeson is somewhere on your list and, if he’s not, then shame on you. The man is an action legend, and his “particular set of skills” should catapult him somewhere near the top of your list. He wasn’t always such an obvious action figure, though, and, apparently, his action-era is about to come to a close. Neeson is retiring from the action genre, and it looks like he’s got a plan for what comes next, as the Taken star is about to enter his 70s.
After multiple delays due to COVID, F9 is finally racing towards the big screen. A year after the original release, the film finally had its premiere with a full red carpet and all. So, of course, everyone had to come out and show their support. For the F9 premiere, Vin Diesel and the cast shared glam looks and even a sweet nod to Paul Walker.

Light spoilers for Black Widow lie ahead.
It’s been a long wait, but Marvel Studios’ Black Widow will finally grace both the big and small screens next month. The long-awaited solo film is set to thrust Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff into the spotlight, giving fans a better understanding of where the deadly Avenger comes from. Along the way, audiences will also be introduced to a host of new characters, including David Harbour’s Alexei Shostakov a.k.a. Red Guardian. We may not know everything about the imposing character, but it’s more than apparent that he has a problem with former Captain America Steve Rogers. And Harbour has an idea that would see the two face off in a movie.
