    Fast and Furious 8 set for 2017 premier

    Fast and Furious 8

    Fast and Furious 7 has only been in cinemas for a few weeks and it seems its creators are already gearing up for the next Fast and Furious 8 movie. 

    Last weekend Fast and Furious 7 became the fastest movie in history to generate $1 billion in revenue, so it’s no surprise Universal Studios is keen to keep the cash train moving. A tweet from the official Fast and Furious 7 Twitter account has confirmed that the next instalment in the franchise is due to hit cinemas globally on Friday the 14th of April 2017, just under two years from now. This latest news comes after Vin Diesel who plays the character Dominic Toretto said in an interview that “Fast and Furious 7 was for Paul, eight will be from Paul.”

    Obviously plot details are very limited at the moment, but without the late Paul Walker who has played the movie’s main character for almost fifteen years the next movie will likely be very different from previous instalments. Early hints from Vin Diesel suggest Fast and Furious 8 might be based in New York. We’ll no doubt learn more details in the coming months.

    Furious 7 Superbowl trailer (VIDEO)

    Furious 7

    New Furious 7 movie trailer drops at the Superbowl ahead of the movie’s launch on April 3. 

    It’s been a while since we’ve talked about the upcoming Furious 7 movie, but the release of an awesome new trailer at this week’s Superbowl seems like a good enough reason. Set to premier on April 3, the new movie takes off where Fast 6 left off and ties in the Tokyo Drift film which, until this newest addition to the franchise was announced, has seemed like a the weird child in the family that didn’t really belong. It’s taken twelve years, but soon we will actually learn what the point of Tokyo Drift was – apart from a kickass movie with lots of tasty drift cars.

    From this latest trailer it looks like much of the explode-y action scenes will take part in Abu Dhabi, as there’s a handful of exotic Arab-plated supercars in the trailer including a McLaren 12C, Ferrari 458 and Bugatti Veyron. There’s also one other supercar in the video that you’ve probably never heard of before. It’s extremely rare, crazy expensive and built in Dubai. Called the Lykan Hypersport, it costs a whopping $3.4 million and boasts a 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat six engine from Porsche tuner RUF – who are they? They’re a reputable German company that builds the wildest, fastest and most extreme Porsches. And the car (supposedly) gets crashed through two sky scrapers – I think we can presume some CGI was used.

    Check out the new trailer.

    Check Out The Incredible Cars Of RoboCop!

    With the latest movie release of the classic RoboCop franchise, it is only fair that we show you the ass kicking cars and motorcycles of RoboCop...

    Robocop 4
    Whether the original Ford Taurus, in all of its car-of-tomorrow glory, or the Pontiac-needling 6000 SUX stuck in your mind, RoboCop enjoys a place on the car guy’s movie list. But the RoboCop reboot, in theaters now, is less a car movie than the original and there is, we’re sorry to report, no 6000 SUX.

    Why? Well, RoboCop Production Designer and vehicle designer, Martin Whist, told Motor Trend. “The current RoboCop isn’t has far in the future as the original film was. So the cars need to be designed for the near future.”

    Because of this, here are the RoboCop motors kicking ass…


    RoboCop’s Motorcycle 



    Detroit Police Cruiser



    OmniCorp Armored Truck



    Alex Murphy’s Car



    Clara Murphy’s Car



    Detroit Police Hatchbacks


     
    OmniCorp Troop Transport 

    The Rest
    If you look closely, you can pick out a number of other vehicles throughout the movie. OmniCorp also uses lightly modified Dodge Durangos as security vehicles and RoboCop is occasionally driven around in a modified Chevy Suburban. One of the bad guys drives a supercar, though only a portion of it is visible in the frame. It appears to be an Audi R8. Another rocks a first-gen Porsche Cayenne. Then there are the little Easter Eggs. “There’s a few that I got for background,” says Whist. “I got these Japanese cars and some European cars that just had a different look you don’t see in North America. A lot of them were just place-them-in-the-background cars.”
