If the Super Bowl spot and this morning’s extended trailer just weren’t enough for you ‘Fast and Furious’ fanatics, then we’ve got even more engine-roaring goodness for you. Universal has released a new official poster for ‘Furious 7,’ along with a whole gallery of images featuring some familiar faces (and some new ones) to get you all revved up for the upcoming sequel.
‘Fast and Furious 7’—the next installment in the best film franchise that isn’t Marvel—is coming this spring after some lengthy delays (it was originally scheduled to open last summer), and based on this new trailer, we couldn’t be more excited.
A ‘Fast and Furious’ Super Bowl trailer is almost as much of a tradition as the halftime show at this point. OK, maybe not quite that much, but the past two ‘Fast and Furious’ movies have had their ads, and now ‘Fast and Furious 7’ is here to follow up on that tradition. There are a lot of car commercials during the Super Bowl, but this is THE car commercial.
The year may be coming to a close, but rolling over in 2015 will bring one of HBO's most exciting lineups to date. Check out our first look at official footage from 'Game of Thrones' season 5, J.J.

ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Spider-Man has a really hard time, a fascinating ‘Batman vs Superman’ spoiler is revealed, and Marvel looks to cast the mentor of ‘Doctor Strange.’
Back in September, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed through Twitter that he’s signed on to play the villainous Black Adam role in DC’s upcoming ‘Shazam’ movie. We’d been hearing rumors for a while that Johnson was getting in on the superhero business, and casting him as Black Adam is a rather inspired choice. But don’t expect Johnson to play a straightforward bad guy: the actor just teased some more hints about his “anti-hero” character.
'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon has so far conducted fake mountain top-set "intense staredowns" with such genuinely intense dudes as Jared Leto and Robert Downey, Jr., both of which ended up being mostly amusing, only slightly weird outings. For his latest eyeball-popper, however, Fallon finally went full weird, with Dwayne Johnson assisting as his staring partner.
This is a weird instance of art imitating life imitating art. Universal Studios Orlando’s famous old ‘Earthquake’ ride was recently updated and replaced with a similar attraction called ‘Disaster!’ where guests get to experience movie special effects, and become extras in the “ultimate” disaster movie called ‘Mutha Nature,’ which stars none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Next summer, Johnson will be seen in ‘San Andreas,’ which is basically ‘Mutha Nature’ brought to life.
Dwayne Johnson has spent the past decade splitting his time between action movies and family fare, so it was only a matter of time before everyone’s favorite muscleman was recruited to voice an animated Disney character.
