I cannot fucking wait for F9. Of course, the new trailer for the installment looks as fucking ridiculous as usual. But with director Justin Lin returning to the franchise, the trailer also features fantastic action the dude is known for.
I say it without irony that Justin Lin’s run on the Fast and the Furious franchise is some of my favorite dumb-action-movie directing of the past 20 years or so. Not only that, but the series suffered a marked decline (again I’m serious), when he left after the sixth installment. Dude can direct an action sequence, friends. So, this is fucking fantastic news to me.
Justin Lee is typically known as the genius auteur responsible for the resurrection of the Fast & Furious franchise. Now he’ll also be known as the auteur responsible for the resurrection of Knight Rider.
Akira is the adaptation that will simply never die. Warner Bros. simply won’t let it! Now the company is eyeballing Justin Lin (Star Trek Beyond, Furious Franchise) to shepherd the anime into Hollywood live action.
It’s the poster for a new Star Trek movie. So, naturally, it has Kirk popping a wheelie on a dirt bike. Naturally.
Much better trailer than the first one. Am I happening to underestimate this movie? I would much rather live in a Universe where it rules, you know? Here’s hoping.
Justin Lin is deeply responsible for the Fast & Furious renaissance, and I mean that without irony. A large part of the enjoyment that came from the third through sixth installments of the franchise was thanks to Lin’s eye for action, and ensemble acting. Maybe it’s being a Furious Fanboy, but dude was missed in F7, with James Wan an ill-fitting replacement. So fuck yes, get him back, Vinny. Get him back.
This. This is a thing. This is a thing that is happening.
Oh Sweet Christ. Potential bad news: Star Trek Beyond is reshooting. Definite, definite, definite bad news: the movie has added EASILY THE WORST PART OF THE EXPANSE, actress Shohreh Aghdashloo.
