While we were as impressed as the next guy by that sportscar flying out of one skyscraper and into another during Sunday’s Super Bowl TV spot for Furious 7,there was another absurdity that struck us: In addition to being one of the most badass movie franchises in existence, Fast and Furious may now be the baldest, too. Aside from series regulars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Tyrese, we’ve now got a baddie played by Jason Statham, who we all know is far too tough for hair. It’s because nobody wants to see Jason Statham with hair.) It got us thinking: Bruce Willis is perfect for Furious 8.
As reported, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady makes an appropriately raunchy cameo in the new TV spot for the comedy sequel. When Ted and Tami-Lynn decide they want a baby, they need to find a superstar sperm donor. On the plus side, Ted gets to experience one of Brady’s perfect spirals first-hand.
Never shy about his affection for the late Paul Walker — whom he fondly calls “Pablo” — Vin Diesel took to Facebook Tuesday to remember his Fast & Furious co-star, who died late last year. Along with his note, Diesel shared a new still photo from the film of him and Walker standing in a garage and looking solemn — a shot seemingly connected to a previously disclosed funeral scene from the film, which opens next year. The second photo that Diesel shared on Tuesday shows him as Torretto, wrapping his fists in tape.
When we got going on our monster list of most anticipated movies coming out this year , we found ourselves constantly wanting to turn to the next page. 2015 is sizing up to be the most monstrous movie year of all — with mega-franchises like “The Avengers,” “The Hunger Games,” and “Star Wars” poised to break all kinds of box office records. (Thankfully “Avatar 2” is slated for 2016, otherwise our heads would explode!) Forget 2014, here are the year-from-now movies that have us wishing we could travel into the future: 1. “Star Wars: Episode VII” ZOMG.
