Talking Mass Destruction With The 'Fast Five' Crew

Just how many cars were destroyed, director Justin Lin? I had the chance to sit down with Fast Five director Justin Lin in Rio de Janeiro and discuss how he totally destroyed a crapload of cars in the film. Tyrese, Ludacris, and the fantastically gorgeous Elsa Pataky also talk about the relationships on set. The intensity of the footage has nothing on my intro though. I could have sworn I was more enthusiastic during the taping. Perhaps I was just terrified of falling over the railing and tumbling all the way down Sugar Loaf.

'Drive' Trailer Has Fast Cars And Albert Brooks

Just watch it, it's cool. [post-video postid="212506"]Of all the stuff getting promoted at Comic-Con, the thing I'm personally most excited about is Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive. Starring a cool Ryan Gosling, a beautiful Carey Mulligan, an evil Albert Brooks, and more adjective-matched stars, it looks to be an arthouse action movie to give Tarantino a run for his money. This trailer, fortunately, has done nothing to make my level of anticipation decrease. There are some cool automotive stunts, and glimpses at the aforementioned stars, along with Christina Hendricks, Bryan Cranston, and Ron Perlman. I can't wait to drive (my Segway) to my local theater to watch Drive!


‘Fast Five’ Teaser Trailer Is Mission: In-freaking-sanity

I decided to creep Vin Diesel's Facebook page for the first time in my life today, and as random fate would have it, I found the teaser trailer for Fast Five. I decided to creep Vin Diesel's Facebook page for the first time in my life today, and as random fate would have it, I found the teaser trailer for Fast Five. Finally, a high-octane look at The Rock dressed as a West Hollywood genie in hot pursuit of Diesel and his muscle car army. The plan was to have Vin release this to his 20 million Facebook fans first, and the Paul Walker, Ludacris, and everyone else would post it to their own pages. Vin always goes first. In trailers and in line for lunch. Dude won't eat chili mac at room temperature.


New ‘Fast Five’ Trailer Knees Gravity In The Taint From Behind

Move over Cars 2 trailer. Your reign as today's most exciting auto-centric film trailer has come to an end. Move over Cars 2 trailer. Your reign as today's most exciting auto-centric film trailer has come to an end. Behold the latest trailer for Fast Five. It gives us all the things you'd expect from this film. Fast cars chasin faster cars, fast cars speeding alongside trains, people hanging out of fast cars, people making out while driving fast cars, Vin Diesel and The Rock sweating and rolling around on top of one another', Ludacris being sassy, gatlin guns, base jumping out of plummeting cars, and the crew walking in slow motion on a beach while wearing white outfits. It's just like the previous films mixed together with a little sprinkle of Boyz II Men video added for taste.


Matthew McConaughey's 'Dazed and Confused' Audition Tape is the Most McConaughey Thing to Ever McConaughey

If you ever wanted proof that McConaughey *is* Wooderson (and vice versa), this is it. By Jared Jones It is often said that the greatest actors don't act at all, really, but rather bring certain (enhanced) aspects of their own personality into the character they are portraying — prime examples of this being Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski, John Wayne in everything, and Matthew McConaughey in Dazed and Confused. With his perpetually laid-back vibe and penchant for stony anecdotes, McConaughey *is* Wooderson and vice versa, hence why the actor will always be looked at through the lense of his first defining role. Perhaps to confirm our long-running and well-backed suspicions about McConaughey the person, the Criterion Collection decided to release his original audition tape for Dazed and Confused yesterday. It is without a doubt the most McConaughey thing to ever McConaughey. According to FilmDrunk, the then-23-year-old McConaughey only wound up in Dazed and Confused after meeting the film's casting director at the Hyatt bar where "McConaughey’s buddy used to bartend and give him free beer." My guess is that said director took one look into McConaughey's steely blue, glazed over eyes and instantly knew that everything was going to be all right, all right, all right. Check out McConaughey's audition tape above, which features his now infamous "high school girls" line and even an appearance by future Dazed and Confused co-star Willy Wiggins. Willy Wiggins. With a name like that, it's a shame that kid's career never took off.


Justin Timberlake Returns To Jimmy Fallon To Sing Some Third Eye Blind

Do Smashmouth next! Justin Timberlake swung by Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show (as he so often does) for a largely unfunny, congratulatory skit about two dumb kids in summer camp in 1997. They talk like they have retainers in their mouths, and that's pretty much the alpha and the omega of the humor aside from, "Hey! Justin Timberlake's here!" BUT, there is salvation in all this. In the form of a sing-along to the seemingly forgotten Third Eye Blind song, "Jumper." If you fast forward about 2/3 of the way through, you get to the better part...the song.


Paul Walker Borrows Mom's Car In 'Vehicle 19' Trailer

More like Paul Driver. Vehicle 19 seems to start out as most Paul Walker movies do with Paul Walker getting out of prison and having his plans of walking the line messed up by getting into some trouble that requires him to drive quickly. However, this time there's a twist. In Vehicle 19, Paul Walker MUST. DRIVE. A. MINIVAN. How is he supposed to protect a key witness from a villainous police force and blow stuff up without a vehicle capable of speed boosts and drifting? This is the most embarrassing thing to happen to a cast member of The Fast and the Furious since Vin Diesel had to drive that minivan in The Pacifier. At this point, he's done so many driving movies, I'm not certain he really has legs. O, the irony of being a Walker.


'Fast & Furious 7' Trailer Isn't Messing Around

That was awesome. The first trailer for Fast & Furious 7 begins by showing the team drive their cars out of a plane and parachute onto a mountain highway where they use grappling hooks to rip the back off an armored transport bus and rescue a hostage before the bus falls off a cliff while Paul Walker runs dramatically on top of it and leaps onto the back of Michelle Rodriguez's car at the last second. It's all very thrilling and something Scorpion should aspire to. For all the reports that Fast & Furious 7 had scripting problems following the untimely death of Paul Walker, this sequence seems like the perfect opportunity to write his character out of the script. Simply, have his parachuting car land in a tree. Then show Vin Diesel receiving a text that says, "Landed in tree. I'll just hang here. Good luck with the mission. - Brian." I don't know why they felt they needed to complicate things. Amongst the exhilarating stunts, is perhaps the most exciting thing you'll ever see in a movie. It concerns the Rock regarding the plaster cast on his broken arm. He mutters, "Daddy's gotta go to work," then breaks the cast off his arm by flexing before uppercut-punching Jason Statham through a window. As far as I'm concerned, this movie has no script problems.


Car Fetishists Will Get Weirdly Excited By These ‘Cars 2' Videos

If you prefer tailpipe to tail, these odd turntable videos to promote 'Cars 2' will be auto-erotic entertainment for you. There are all kinds of weird fetishes out there, from furries who dress up in animal costumes to eproctophiliacs who get turned on by farts. (Note to Hollywood producers: why no eprcrocto rom-com starring Jennifer Aniston, who loves to smell Jack Black's farts?) If you prefer tailpipe to tail, these odd turntable videos to promote Cars 2 will be auto-erotic entertainment for you. Meant to mimic the way cars spin in car shows, I think anthropomorphizing the cars makes this YouTube outing feel a little creepy. Especially because they're turning slowly and there's no music. No distractions. Just you and the car. Imagine getting inside Holley Shiftwell, clutching her, driving her insane as you press firmly on her... brakes? And not coincidentally, I'm putting the breaks on this line of thinking. Cars 2 zooms into theaters June 24th and features the voices of Owen Wilson, Larry the Lovable Cable Guy and Michael Caine.
