Been hankering for some big-screen dystopian action? It's been a long time since the original Mad Max films debuted in the 1980s, but three decades since the arrival of the last installment, a new one is coming to the silver screen.
After seeing the recently released trailer, we're sure many are looking forward to the mindless automotive excitement that Fast & Furious 7 promises. The film looks to be going to even crazier extremes in this seventh installation of the franchise, with cars parachuting out of planes, a bus bristling with guns and Jason Statham beating people up. However, the movie doesn't hit theaters until April 3, 2015. That's a bit of a wait, but thankfully a video from Mighty Car Mods is giving us a tas
The famous, custom Harley-Davidson motorcycle nicknamed Captain America from the '60s classic Easy Rider sold for $1.35 million at auction on October 18, or just over $1.6 million after applicable fees. That was a new record price ever paid for a cycle, according to Hemmings, and It handily beat auction house Profiles in History's original estimate of as much as $1.2 million. However, a revelation about a possible problem with the bike's authenticity came to light just before the sale that could
With the famous tag line, "A man went looking for America. And couldn't find it anywhere..." the 1969 movie Easy Rider has become one of the definitive on-screen expressions of the counter culture of the era. Starring Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper with a great guest role from Jack Nicholson, it told the story of disillusioned guys riding motorcycles through the US. Among the most iconic parts of the film was the customized Harley-Davidson chopper that Fonda's character rode. On October 18, the b
Hollywood seems to be all about adapting TV shows from the '70s and '80s into movies these days. Starsky & Hutch was turned into a movie. So were The Dukes of Hazzard, Miami Vice and The A-Team. We could go on, but you get the point. The one project that seems to keep stalling, though, is CHiPS, but that's now apparently been shifted into overdrive.
Stunt choreography is a business that really needs to be done properly. A failure in any one area has the potential to not just ruin the stunt and waste a film or TV show's budget, but could lead to a member of the cast or crew getting seriously hurt (or even killed).
Shooting has officially wrapped on the latest installment of the Fast and Furious franchise, and as part of that, the cast and crew has issued a touching note that pays tribute to the new members of the film, the series' late star, Paul Walker and of course, the fans.
Filming EV Movie Changed Her Mind On The Power Of Electric Vehicles
The producer of the Kick Gas documentary about electric vehicles is becoming somewhat of a convert. Yes, producer Tiffany Raim drove an SUV during the filming of the movie. But she's since gotten rid of it, according to an InsideEVs interview with her.
Low-speed quadricycle a perfect 'picture vehicle' for Monty Python alum
The little Renault Twizy electric vehicle is making its way to the big screen in a bizarre and futuristic new movie, The Zero Theorem. The film is from director Terry Gilliam, a Monty Python alumnus and director of the feature films Brazil, Twelve Monkeys and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
We've seen no shortage of zany stunts in the huge, open world of Grand Theft Auto V. A quick YouTube search reveals a huge variety of videos, with people crashing and/or blowing up planes, boats, cars and whatever else they come across in the world of San Andreas. This, though, might be our new favorite way of taking advantage of GTA's many, many forms of amusement.
The tagline for the 1971 film On Any Sunday was "Motorcycle, Sport and the Men Who Ride On Any Sunday." Funded by Steve McQueen and directed by Bruce Brown – he also directed The Endless Summer and his son Dana Brown made Dust to Glory – the film dug into the world of professional and amateur motorcycle racing and was nominated for an Academy Award for best documentary.
We are living in a fantastic time for movies about cars and motor racing. The Fast and Furious franchise brings mindless action, and movies like Rush show there can be a more intellectual side to motorsports. There's even room for some interesting documentaries, as well. Havana Motor Club is trying to tell the story of racing in Cuba, and a new doc called Speed Sisters explores the first all-female, Palestinian racing team.
Fiat is really trying to push its five-door 500L, which has gotten off to a rather disappointing first year of sales. The Italian brand's first big-name effort involved rapper P. Diddy and a pair of very unfortunate desert pedestrians. Now, it's gone even bigger (quite literally), teaming up with everyone's favorite, city destroying, radiation-breathing green lizard monster – Godzilla.
If you're an automotive engineer being tormented by an immortal being made of fire, then wouldn't you think it best to have a custom coupe called the FireBreather for your getaway car? That's the FireBreather in the image above, adorned by the red wings that once fronted the Pontiac Firebird, running away from a black cloud of evil in a trailer for the movie Jinn.
Look, we aren't expecting Transformers 4 to be the next Citizen Kane or Casablanca. All we're expecting is lots of explosions, some vague attempts at acting and an excuse to stuff our faces with some buttery popcorn in a cool theater on a hot summer day. Judging by this new, full-length trailer released on Michael Bay's YouTube page, we're pretty sure we're going to get just that – and we're going to get a bunch of neat cars and trucks.
It seems that Fast and Furious 7 is finally back in production. The UAE-based Speeed spotted crews from the movie filming in Abu Dhabi with help from the local police. According to Speeed, the production worked with the constabulary to shut down several roads in the metropolis and simulate a police chase with a Ferrari 458.
Sunday's Super Bowl saw a new 30-second spot air for the upcoming Need For Speed movie, starring Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul. But what you may not have seen yet was the extended, 90-second trailer that went live online last night. The other item of news is NFS's release date - the new flick will hit theaters on March 14.
Call us optimistic, but it seems that a golden age of racing movies could be upon us once again. After classics like Le Mans and Grand Prix gave way to cheeseballs like Days of Thunder and Driven, the past few years have given us the epic documentary Senna and the recent blockbuster Rush. And the next great racing movie could be speeding around the corner.
Comedian Adam Carolla is a pretty solid car guy, having hosted the short-lived Car Show in 2011. Over the years, his interest has strayed towards vintage racers, particularly those campaigned by Hollywood legend Paul Newman. This admiration of Newman's racing has led Carolla to begin work on a documentary of the actor-turned-racer and team owner.
