Dwayne Johnson: There Are More Miles Left In The “Fast” Franchise

Published

on

Will there be a Fast 8? It’s the million dollar question fans want to know. Dwayne Johnson tells HipHollywood during the films’ junket that he believes there are still a few miles left in the franchise.

“I think there may be another one,” said Johnson.  “I think there are a few more miles left on this franchise. They are talking about it now and we can have early discussions about it now which I’m cool with. But I think let’s let Furious 7 come out and see how the fans respond to it.”

And Vin Diesel believes fans will really enjoy the films ending, which pays homage to the late Paul Walker who died in 2013 in a fatal car crash. “We really pulled out all the stops to conclude this movie in a way that honors a legacy, so I would hold off talking about the future until fans really get a chance to see this movie and the ending specifically.”

Directed by James Wan, Furious 7 finds the gang on the hunt for a government hacker played by newcomer Nathalie Emmanuel from Game of Thrones. Also new to the franchise is Kurt Russell, Djimon Hounsou and action star Jason Statham, who just may be their fiercest adversary.

“Every single time we shoot another movie I’m like how the hell are we going to top what we just did,” said Ludacris who returns as Tej. “And somehow we do it, and the fans keep supporting, so it will continue to get bigger and better.”

Furious 7 hits theaters April 3. Check out the video above for the rest of our sit-down with the cast.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
