    Review: 'Fast & Furious 6' Makes Cars Go Boom In A Mostly Satisfactory Way

    Has there ever been a franchise like the "Fast & Furious?" Begun over ten years ago with a film most notable for its '50s-style B-movie title, "The Fast & The Furious," it was a modest sleeper hit. Before long the series saw its biggest draw, the potato-headed growl-monster Vin Diesel, exit the seri...

    'Fast & Furious 7' Won't Be Driven By Director Justin Lin

    Say what you will about Justin Lin, but he's come a long way since breaking out with his indie "Better Luck Tomorrow." Granted, most of his success has come from shooting fast cars do jumps and stuff, but he also helped revitalize and re-legitimatize the "Fast & Furious" franchise as a whole, thanks...

    Justin Lin Moves Into New Sci-Fi Comedy 'Subdivision'

    Fresh off helming perhaps the most gleefully anarchic and exuberant entry in the “Fast and Furious” series with “Fast Five,” the number of directions Justin Lin can explore next looks enviable to say the least. With that film's enormous box office bolstered by critical su...

    'Fast Five' Helmer Justin Lin In Talks With Universal For Former Spike Lee Project 'L.A. Riots'

    A couple of years back, Justin Lin was a director who worked constantly, but was seen as a fairly mid-level guy: his debut "Better Luck Tomorrow" was well regarded critically, but follow-ups like "Annapolis" and his work on the third and fourth "Fast & Furious" movies were much more coolly received....

    Jason Statham Reaches His Destiny, Sought For Two Future 'Fast & Furious' Sequels

    'Fast Six' And 'Fast Seven' May Be Shot Back-To-Back In EuropeFranchises, generally speaking, are more like fruit than cheese (bear with us, we are going somewhere with this). They might need a film to ripen to their full potential -- sequels generally outgross their predecessors -- but in the main they run their course by the third or fourth film, as opposed to, say, maturing and finding greater audiences and creative highs with each new installment. So we were as surprised as you were that not only was "Fast Five" the the highest grossing (over $600 million now, nearly double the haul of its "Fast and Furious" predecessors) entry of the ser...
