To celebrate both the return of Han in F9 and the 15th anniversary of the movie that introduced him into the Fast Family, Zach, Chris, and special guest Chris Ali watched Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift for the latest Everything Action Commentary.
Before he takes on Dom Toretto and the Fast Family in F9 this weekend, we’re throwing back to John Cena’s action hero debut with 2006’s wonderfully ridiculous The Marine, which you can watch in the latest Everything Action Theater.
One of the things that separate the character of Dominic Toretto from the real-life Vin Diesel is that Dom probably wouldn’t have created and performed an electronic/dance song but that’s exactly what Vin did last year when he put out “Feel Like I Do”.
Spiral remained at the top of the box office for a second weekend as we gear up for a hopefully big Memorial Day at theaters domestically while F9 exploded overseas with an opening of $162 million in markets like China, Korea and Hong Kong.
This week on the Everything Actioncast, Zach and Chris talk about the new F9 trailer, DMX, The Nevers, Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, a Netflix Gundam movie, two upcoming Christopher Pike projects from Mike Flanagan, News of the World, and more.
The Fast Family is finally back after a year-long delay last year as Dom and the gang’s peaceful domestic life is shattered by the return of Cipher, whose quest for revenge has brought back Dom’s younger, evil brother Jakob in F9, arriving in June.
Steven Spielberg and The Duffer Brothers are bringing Stephen King’s The Talisman to Netflix, Borderlands adds another cast member, Comic-Con 2021 will be virtual again, The Simpsons and Superman & Lois renewed for new seasons, Silent Night, Deadly Night is getting a reboot, future Lionsgate theatrical movies will be exclusively on Starz and more in this week’s News Shotgun.
The ninth chapter in “The Fast Saga” arrives on May 22nd as Dom and the crew face off against Dom’s evil brother Jakob Torretto, played by John Cena, who has seemingly teamed up with the diabolical Cipher to threaten the world while exacting revenge.
