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!

Ten-year-old Oliver Burton, who's been given just weeks to live with his third round of cancer and who was also born with Down Syndrome, wanted nothing more than to meet the Queen of England. For one reason or another, though, the tyke was not granted an audience with the real royal herself at Buckingham Palace, so Helen Mirren stepped in. Get More »

13 Hollywood Loopers

Columbia Pictures Columbia Pictures

The visual effects department had to do a pretty bang-up job to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt look even remotely similar to a young yippee ki-yaying mother-f---er Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's time-hopping "Looper," but since Hollywood's baddest, baldest ass-kicker was blessed with three daughters and no sons in real life, there wasn't much of a choice. Sure, all that pain and suffering ultimately paid off, but there are some people who've got it way, way easier. Get More »

'Hitchcock' Trailer Is Downright Hitchcockian


Considering the fact that Alfred Hitchcock is widely revered as one of the most popular and acclaimed directors in the history of motion pictures, it takes some pretty brave filmmakers to try and make a movie about him.

What does it mean to be cool? It's pretty damn subjective. So when compiling our list of the 25 coolest people making movies right now (somebody had to do it, right?), we accounted for various factors.

These are the actors who not only impress us onscreen (though that helps), but convey a certain genuineness off it, be it at awards shows, on TV appearances or during our own personal experiences interviewing them. They can be multi-talents, also excelling at music, art or writing. And they can make a habit of turning up in hilarious viral videos or even at your local karaoke bar.

But most of all, these are the 25 actors we'd really just like to sit down and have a beer with.

Welcome to NextMovie's 1st annual Cool List – and let us know who makes your own list in the comments section below. Get More »
