New VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE Trailer

First Look Of Vanessa Kirby As Hattie Shaw

Dwayne Johnson Instagrammed our first look of Vanessa Kirby as Hattie Shaw, sister of Deckard Shaw. “ Deadpool 2 ” director, David Leitch who also gave us “ John Wick ” and “ Atomic Blonde ” will direct Universal’s “ Fast & Furious ” spinoff movie, “ Hobbs and Shaw ” focusing on Dwayne Johnson ’s character Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham ’s character, Deckard Shaw, both of whom had appeared in recent installments of this franchise. This project was why Universal Pictures moved “Fast & Furious 9” to 2020. The main writer of this franchise, Chris Morgan, returns again to pen the script for this spinoff which reportedly will be about Diplomatic Security Service agent, Luke Hobbs and former bad guy turned Hobbs’ friend, Deckard Shaw (Statham) as they go off on their own adventure. Details on that what that adventure is about or which villain they’re after, are not yet disclosed. Vanessa Kirby plays an agent and Shaw’s sister. Discuss this with fellow SJF fans on Facebook .

Fast & Furious Animated Series Heading To Netflix

An animated “ Fast & Furious ” series has been ordered at Netflix. The series is the first under an expansion of the company’s ongoing multi-year deal with DreamWorks Animation Television. In the series, teenager Tony Toretto follows in the footsteps of his cousin Dom when he and his friends are recruited by a government agency to infiltrate an elite racing league serving as a front for a nefarious crime organization bent on world domination. “We are excited to extend and expand our successful relationship with Netflix by not only delivering more high-quality DreamWorks programming, but connecting fans of Universal films with fascinating new stories,” said Margie Cohn, president of DreamWorks Animation Television. “Our new home at Universal marks an exciting new chapter for storytelling at our studio, and Fast & Furious is only the beginning.” Tim Hedrick, who wrote for DreamWorks’ “Voltron: Legendary Defender” series, and Bret Haaland, who has produced DreamWorks’ anim

David Leitch Directing Hobbs & Shaw Spin-Off

As Universal guns the engine on the first planned spin-off from the Fast & Furious franchise, the studio has pinpointed the person it wants to wrangle Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham for the film. John Wick and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch is directing the film. It makes sense that a film featuring the two would demand a director who has proven they can bring action scenes to life, and Leitch – who moved from stunt co-ordination and second unit work to co-direct the first Wick with Chad Stahelski – has certainly shown he's got the flair for it. Chris Morgan has written the script for the new film, which doesn't yet have a name, but should boast Johnson's Luke Hobbs and Statham's recently redeemed Deckard Shaw on their own mission, minus any candy asses. Universal wants this one in cinemas for July next year, and so it needs the wheels to hit the road quickly. Leitch's most recent job was directing Deadpool 2, which opens in the UK on 16 May

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Crosses The 1 Billion Mark

Beginning the year with a box office story that should surprise nobody, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has owned Christmas and New Year in theaters, and has blasted through the $1 billion barrier after only three weeks on release. Its total up to New Year's Eve was $1.040 billion, with half of that coming from the States, and the UK top of the other worldwide territories with $91.5m. That makes it the number one release of 2017 in the US, and the 24th biggest film of all time globally. But it's actually only the third biggest film of 2017 at the moment, with Fast & Furious 8 ($1,235.8) and Beauty And The Beast ($1,263.5) still to catch. Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle had a good weekend too, coming in second at the US box office this last weekend with $50.6m, taking it to a two-week total of $169.8m. That's a surprisingly big haul for a quasi-sequel to an elderly Robin Williams movie, but warm reviews and its likeable cast have clearly made it a light and easygoing famil

#TheFateOfTheFurious Wins Again

Driving into its second week of release, Fast & Furious 8 continues to lead the pack in terms of box office results in the States and across the world. The latest entry into the successful franchise has now crossed $163.5 million in the US after adding $38.68 million according to studio estimates. While that represents a 60% drop from its opening weekend, the new film is still going great guns, and its global performance is even better. With strong showings in China and elsewhere, Fast 8 is closing in on a billion dollars worldwide after just two weekends on release. That $908.3 million is breaking records and seems set to stick around for a while. The new movies entering the charts had much less success, which means that The Boss Baby clung like an infant to second with $12.7 million and Beauty And The Beast stayed third on $9.9 million. Only one new arrival cracked the top five, and it was the one on the least amount of screens: Disney Nature's Born In China, with the
