Helen Mirren Wants in on a New 'Fast and Furious' Movie

The real reason that Vin Diesel and company have already made six (it'll be seven as of next summer) successful "Fast and Furious" movies is because, in short, it kinda embraces its own absurdity. Yes, of course, Vin Diesel can jump 250 feet over a highway off of a moving car to catch his girlfriend in mid-air. Can't you? And, dude, yes some airplane runways do stretch the length of the Great Wall of China. Duh!

So, why can't the demure and yet still so bada** Helen Mirren — who can totally wield a semi-automatic just as handily as Bruce Willis in "Red 2" — get in on some of that street-racing fun? She may be 67 years old, but age is just a number when you're born to ride!

Box Office Report: 'The Purge' Smacks Down 'The Internship'

The Purge Universal

"The Internship" may have had the big names and the big expectations, but it was "The Purge" that received the big payday at the box office this weekend, as the dystopian horror flick shocked expectations by bringing in a whopping $36.4 million according to

That was more than enough to overshadow not just Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn's reunion in "The Internship," which debuted in fourth place with $18.1 million, but also returning hits "Fast & Furious 6" ($19.8 million) and "Now You See Me" ($19.5 million).

Next week, of course, will likely be a different story thanks to the debut of "Man of Steel." But for now, "The Purge" reigns.

'Fast & Furious 6' Spells Box Office Armageddon For 'After Earth'

Fast & Furious Universal

According to, Will Smith's new sci-fi epic "After Earth" took a massive header at the box office this weekend, allowing Vin Diesel and company to slip into the number one spot for the second weekend in a row, as "Fast & Furious 6" earned an estimated $34 million.

How bad was it for "After Earth?" The team-up between Smith and son Jaden proved to be the latest flop by director M. Night Shyamalan, bringing in $27 million. That doesn't sound too bad, but the film cost over $120 million to make and had been expected to top the box office. Instead, it had to settle for third place behind fellow newcomer "Now You See Me," which earned $28 million.

For a full run down of the weekend's box office top ten, including figures for returning favorites "Iron Man 3," "The Great Gatsby" and "The Hangover Part III," head to

Have you ever watched a "Fast and Furious" movie (any of the previous five qualify, including "Tokyo Drift," we guess) and thought, "Man, this is good, but I kind of wish there was less action. Less fights, less explosions, less street races. Actually, you know what would be great? If this was directed by Sofia Coppola." Of course you have. Who hasn't? Get More »

Hey guys, remember a couple weeks ago when we mentioned that Tom Hiddleston was in talks to play the lead in the upcoming reboot of "The Crow?" Considering Hiddleston is still hot as hell thanks to his turn as Loki in the record smashing box office blockbuster "The Avengers," and that he was aggressively pursuing the role, it seemed like pretty much a done deal, right?

Well, not so much apparently, because according to Deadline, the folks at Relativity Media have decided to pass on Hiddleston after all and instead are planning to sign up Luke Evans to play the undead goth superhero. Get More »

Vin Diesel Drops 'Fast & Furious 7' Filming Hint

There've been murmurs of Universal Pictures' plans for a seventh installment to the "Fast & Furious" franchise for a couple of years now, but it looks like Vin Diesel was much too eager for the hot rod cat to be pulled out of the garage bag this weekend to hold the secret in any longer.

Via Facebook, he announced Saturday (so no April Fool's Day joke involved here) in no unclear terms that the sequel has indeed been greenlit, that a shooting location has been narrowed and that a production schedule is now in place for the flick.

Clearly, Vin Diesel's vocabulary doesn't include the term "embargo." Get More »
