Michelle Rodriquez, who co-starred with Paul in 'The Fast and the Furious' franchise, has finally broke her silence on his tragic death.

The 35 year-old, like many others, took to twitter to express her sentiments following Walker's fatal car crash in Santa Clarita, while attending a charity event for his organization 'Reach Out Worldwide'.

Turbo

The stars were out to premiere their movies over this past week. First to face the paparazzi in New York were the voice cast of the animated comedy Turbo, including Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michelle Rodriguez and Ken Jeong. The film opens this week in the US, but British audiences will have to wait until October. We have lots of footage from the event including Blake Lively and her brother, Michelle Rodriguez and Ken Jeong, The Indycar Superstars as well as the animated movie's star Ryan Reynolds.

On Tuesday in New York, Helen Mirren, Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Mary Louise Parker signed autographs and posed for photos before the premiere of their new action-comedy sequel RED 2. The film also opens this week in the US, and in two weeks in the UK. Watch the Red 2 premiere footage here.

Fast And Furious 6 Set To Finally Hit Fifth Gear At US Box Office


Vin Diesel Dwayne Johnson Michelle Rodriguez Paul Walker

On paper Fast And Furious 6 is the trashy alternative to the high budget action thrillers of Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness, but at the box office it looks like it’s going to reel them in this weekend as it opens with a surprising run of positive reviews and a surprisingly loyal fan base meaning that Vin Diesel and co. are set to come up trumps.

So why is it going to do so well so far into its series? "'Fast & Furious 6' arrives on the scene packing more punch than any franchise rightfully should on its sixth lap," Exhibitor Relations senior box-office analyst Jeff Bock told MTV News. "But this isn't your average Part 6, is it? '2 Fast 2 Furious' didn't have Vin Diesel and 'Tokyo Drift' didn't have either of the stars, so '6' really is '4' with Paul Walker and Diesel."

He continued "While '6' usually translates to franchise fatigue, this series doesn't play by the rules, and Universal has done a great job beefing up each installment," he continued. "In 'Fast Five,' they added Dwayne Johnson and in '6' they brought Michelle Rodriguez's character back from the dead. Plus, instead of a car-racing series, 'Fast & Furious' has morphed into a heist-film franchise, extending its audience and lengthening its play-ability." So there you go. We look forward to Fast And Furious 18 in 2050.

'Turbo' Could Be DreamWorks' Latest Masterstroke [Trailer]


Ryan Reynolds Paul Giamatti Bill Hader Michelle Rodriguez Samuel L Jackson Snoop Dogg

Turbo, the new 3-D animation from DreamWorks Animation, follows the story of an ordinary garden snail whose dream is to become the fastest snail in the world. It stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character, with the voices of Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Bill Hader, Michelle Rodriguez, Samuel L Jackson and Snoop Dogg also lending their voices to the movie. The trailer suggests Turbo is going to be a whole lot of fun.

Watch the Turbo trailer!

Turbo's buddy Chet tries to talk out his snail friend out of his aspirations and does everything within his power to convince him that he should enjoy his relaxed lifestyle. However, when Turbo is admiring the speeding vehicles roaring down the highway, he is sucked into the engine of a racing car and is submerged in a tank of nitrous oxide which causes him to glow brightly. He later comes to realise that it has given him the ability to move at extraordinary pace and Turbo harbours a new dream of competing at the IndyCar races.

Fast & Furious 6 Review


Good

The most impressive thing about the sixth entry into this noisy franchise is that it's both more preposterous and more self-important than ever before. Which is no mean feat. The cast and crew clearly went for something bigger and more explosive, but by removing their tongues from their cheeks they leave us laughing at them rather than with them. Even so, some of the crazed action scenes are breathtaking.

The story picks up right where the last one ended: Dominic and Brian (Diesel and Walker) have taken the fortune they grabbed in Rio and started an idyllic life in the Canary Islands. Brian and Dom's sister Mia (Brewster) have even produced an adorable baby. Then US Agent Hobbs (Johnson) appears asking for their help in capturing the villainous Shaw (Evans), who is collecting military technological gadgets for some nefarious purpose. And they agree to go along because Dom's presumed-dead girlfriend Letty (Rodriguez) is working with him. So they reassemble the team (Pataky, Gibson, Bridges, Kang, Gadot and Carano) and get started in London.

Yes, this chapter takes place in Europe, which gives the filmmakers new landmarks to race past in their elaborately orchestrated chase sequences, throwing cars like toys at every plate-glass window in sight. The first night-time set-piece in London is fairly incoherent (and nonsensical), but things get better from there, with a whizzy bit of competitive driving for Dom and Letty and a few other showdowns before the action moves to Spain for a couple of massive, gob-smacking action sequences that would boggle the mind if we thought for a second that they were even marginally possible.

Fast and Furious 6

The big cinematic event this week was the world premiere in London of Fast & Furious 6, which brought the film's stars out on the red carpet. With the city in the background, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster talked to the cameras about the action series and its surprisingly sustained popularity. Set in Europe and billed as the biggest yet in the franchise, the sixth film opens next week in the UK and the following week in the US. And production on part 7 is already underway.

Also this week, Hugh Jackman participated in a global interview via Twitter to talk about his upcoming action movie The Wolverine, which comes out in July. As fans sent in questions, he replied with details about the film, his gruelling preparation to play the muscle-bound X-man and how much he enjoys playing the "toughest guy in the yard". His answers were caught on video.

Vin Diesel in Fast & Furious 6

The final trailer for Fast & Furious 6 is finally here, featuring Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson and Vin Diesel driving cars really, really fast. Ok, so it's a little more than that, though not too much. Essentially, the latest trailer is the best bits from the previous clips that have made their way online.

If you're a fan of the franchise you're probably aware that Justin Lin's swan song in the series follows Dwayne Johnson's Luke Hobbs tracking down Dom Toretto (Diesel) in order to ask for his help in taking down a much more dangerous criminal gang, led by Owen Shaw (Luke Evans). Johnson's character needs to recover Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) whom he assumed was dead. Of course, nothing is ever that simple in the world of the Fast and the Furious and Shaw has his own team of experts pulling off dating heists.

We look at Oscar-nominated animated romp Wreck-it Ralph and Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren in Hitchcock

Awards season continues to crank up with Argo taking the lead in the homestretch. Ben Affleck's true 1970s thriller has won the top prizes at the actors, producers and directors guilds, which makes it the favourite to win Best Picture on Oscar night February 24th, even though Affleck isn't nominated as Best Director. On the other hand, he is up for director, as well as film and actor, in this Sunday's British Academy Film Awards, better known as the Baftas.

This weekend also sees the release of the season's final awards-contending titles in the UK, including Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren in Hitchcock and the Oscar-nominated animated romp Wreck-it Ralph. There are also two acclaimed foreign films: Pablo Larrain's inventive Oscar-nominated political black comedy No, and the gorgeous Japanese drama I Wish.

Fast & Furious 6 Trailer Gives Us Action, Action, Action (Video)


Vin Diesel Dwayne Johnson Jordana Brewster Ludacris Michelle Rodriguez

A new trailer for Fast & Furious 6 debuted during the much-coveted Superbowl advert space, and it didn't disappoint in terms of pure, adrenaline fuelled stunt-centric entertainment.

Justin Lin's blockbuster franchise enters its 6th instalment on May 24th 2013, and every year the films seem to get more and more ridiculous. This year, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gison, Ludacris and surprise returnee Michelle Rodriguez are enlisted to help the U.S. government take on villains with some fast cars of their own - and a tank, of course, which can been seen in the new TV spot screaming down the road, causing all kinds of destruction in its wake. 

Some of our favourite quotes from the trailer, and believe us, this was tough, are; "We talkin' vehicular warfare," which we certainly hope it is, "They got a tank," which we can't wait to see, and of course, the last line, "do you believe in ghosts," which marks the exciting return of a certain lady.

Battle Los Angeles Review


Good
So po-faced that it almost feels like a spoof, this energetic action epic is watchable due to its solid cast and visceral tone. And the story and characters are so thin that you almost admire the filmmakers' nerve.

Staff-Sergeant Nantz (Eckhart) is retiring from the Marines on the day of an alien attack on 12 major cities. A shady past means his new troops don't trust him, including the expectant father (Ramon Rodriguez), the shell-shocked guy (Parrack), the buddies (Pesi and Ne-Yo), the bitter one (Hardrict), the bright young thing (Rothhaar), the virgin (Fisher) and the foreigner (M'Cormack). As the assault hits Santa Monica, they're sent to rescue trapped civilians (including Pena and Moynahan). They also team up with an Air Force officer (Michelle Rodriguez) to find a weakness in the alien defence.

Avatar Review


Extraordinary
After a 12-year-break, Cameron returns to feature filmmaking with a mind-bending epic that's both visually spectacular and emotionally involving.

And the fact that it's in gorgeously rendered 3D is icing on the cake.

In the year 2154, paraplegic Marine Jake (Worthington) is transported to the planet Pandora to join the avatar project. Soon he's in the middle of hostile territory in the genetically cloned body of the Na'vi: three metres tall with blue skin, a tail and a very sensitive ponytail. In the jungle, Jake befriends Neytiri (Saldana), who trains him in the ways of the Na'vi. But this puts him at odds with his employers, who want him to help move the Na'vi so they can plunder the land for a rare mineral.

Battle In Seattle Review


OK
In Woody Allen's Bananas, a group of American soldiers are being airlifted to the mythical Latin American country of San Marcos in order to quell a revolution. One soldier asks another which side they are fighting for and he responds, "This time the CIA is not taking any chances; some of us are for and some are against." This political bedlam is reflected in actor Stuart Townsend's hot-wire Battle in Seattle, when one cop muses to another, "Let me get this straight. Yesterday we were not supposed to arrest anybody. Now, we're supposed to arrest everybody."

Battle in Seattle is a high-octane depiction of the World Trade Organization riots in Seattle, Washington in late November 1999, where motives and duties are contradictory, confused, and unsettled. The non-violent protest groups end up embroiled in the very violence they abhor. Seattle Mayor Tobin (Ray Liotta) wants to appeal to the law-and-order police and to the protestors. (The night before the demonstrations he shows up both at a rally for the WTO and a rally against the WTO.) The law enforcement officials attempt to maintain the peaceful protest while at the same time chafing at the bit and waiting to crack heads. When violence erupts at the WTO protests, all the groups scatter and run blindly in all directions, and the National Guard appears to mop it all up.

The Breed (2006) Review


Bad
The cover has a picture of two snarling dogs and a girl in a bikini, facing off with them on all fours. Looks like a tasty werewolf movie... but no, The Breedi is Cujo 2: Electric Bugaloo. At best. A gaggle of twentysomethings take a trip to a cabin in the woods and are beset upon by some exceptionally rabid, aggressive mutts (later revealed to be genetic experiments), and they quickly find themselves being feasted upon... when they aren't busy accidentally maiming themselves severely. Headliner Michelle Rodriguez proves here that her acting ability is actually getting worse as time wears on, and Taryn Manning is grating (as usual) from frame one. The script is about as absurd as they come, stuffed to the breaking point with "We gotta stay together." cliches and warmed-over action sequences pilfered from every horror movie under the sun.

The Fast And The Furious Review


OK
Fast cars, scantily clad women, bare-knuckle brawls, and guns, guns, guns!

What more could be expected from a guilty pleasure-ridden American popcorn movie like The Fast and the Furious. Nothing of substance or intelligence is ever really expected from a summer movie, much less when that movie bears a title akin to a bad porno flick. The Fast and the Furious was exactly how I felt leaving the theater: Hightailing it back home, furious at how quickly the movie fell apart. I mean, how the hell could you screw up something as slam-dunk-awesome as souped-up performance cars amidst the illegal street racing subculture of the L.A. Basin?

Bloodrayne Review


Terrible
German director Uwe Boll is making a name for himself as a schlockster, methodically working his way through a long list of video game adaptations for the silver screen, to painfully bad effect. Now, hot on the heels of the almost-straight-to-video Alone in the Dark with Christian Slater and Tara Reid, Boll is hitting us again with a film adaptation of the hot vampire title BloodRayne. And this is just a brief stop on the road to upcoming productions of Dungeon Siege, Far Cry, and Hunter: The Reckoning. Sadly, Boll is rushing so quickly through each of these absurdly bad pictures that he isn't taking the time to put the schlock where it belongs, so even fans of bad cinema are going to be pretty disappointed.

BloodRayne is the story of a red-headed half-vampire vixen (Kristanna Loken), a dhampir, on a mission to take revenge against her vampire father (inexplicably portrayed here by a wooden and probably somewhat disoriented Ben Kingsley) and the kingdom of night stalkers over which he rules. There are some motivations behind all this, and from time to time Kingsley and Loken utter lines apparently intended to illustrate these motivations, but mostly it doesn't make sense at all and it doesn't really matter. What does matter is that Rayne comes equipped with a pair of awkward-looking sword-type things and she knows how to use them. Well, she doesn't really, but a series of quick edits make that a moot point.

Resident Evil Review


Weak
The best part of playing the Resident Evil video games was the suspense - moving through the shadowy hallways, twitchy in the knowledge that at any moment a zombie (human or otherwise) would leap out to chomp on your neck or leg. And better yet, you'd have your trusty shotgun in hand to blow that dirty ghoulie out of your path.

But while the Resident Evil games may have set new standards for thrills, suspense, and gore for video games, the movie really only succeeds in the third of these. Instead of creating real tension, it barrages you with false suspense and really loud, fast-paced techno metal (score by Marilyn Manson) to give the sense you should be scared. And when all else fails, gross the audience out. Worse, there's not a drop of comic relief in sight.

Continue reading: Resident Evil Review

The Fast & The Furious Review


Bad

In its first 120 seconds, "The Fast and the Furious" makes it abundantly clear that if you're interested in anything more than gunning engines, squealing tires, custom paint jobs and arm-ornament hard-body bimbos, you're watching the wrong movie.

The opening scene is a stunt-driving sequence in which three pimped-out black Hondas ambush an 18-wheeler in what may be the most idiotically complicated hijacking in movie history.

Inside the Hondas are black marketeers looking to boost the truck's load of VCRs. But instead of forcing the truck off the road in more battle-worthy vehicles then holding the driver at gunpoint, one Honda pulls in front and a guy stands up through the sunroof, firing a harpoon through the truck's window. Then he proceeds to edge along the wire attached to the harpoon, climbing into the cab to confront the driver.

Resident Evil Review


Zero

It's been 13 months and 295 preview screenings since I last walked out on a movie ("Series 7: The Contenders," it was called), but "Resident Evil" really earned my indignant, preemptive departure.

A plotless wonder of unmitigated noise, cheap scares and endless rounds of ammunition, this sci-fi zombies-and-gore cinematic calamity is based on a video game of the same name. The only thing positive I can say about it is that the picture's structure is true to its roots: it gets harder (to watch) one level of carnage at time.

After an unexplained biological weapons accident in a secret underground lab complex run by one of those evil movie mega-conglomerate corporations, the whole joint is locked down by the mainframe computer called Red Queen, which then goes HAL 9000 on the workers, killing everyone. Some are drown in their airtight labs, others are gassed -- but not before they've all been infected by the experimental "T-virus," which turns them into...the undead.

Girlfight Review


Excellent

"Girlfight" knocks you on your backside from its very first image -- a powerful close-up of the pure fury in the eyes of its heroine, a dangerous 15-year-old girl from the projects with a propensity for between-class brawls at her high school.

Exploding with her intense focus and attitude, the shot is like something from "Raging Bull," and that's no coincidence. The film is about fierce, angry, intelligent Diana Guzman (Michelle Rodriguez) finding an outlet for her fire and ire by becoming a boxer -- and I don't mean a woman who punches the heavy bag as a trendy form of exercise. I mean a teenage girl who can get into the amateur ring with men and send them to the mat -- hard.

All temper and fists with no control as the film begins, Diana strong-arms her way into training at a broken-down Brooklyn gym alongside aspiring male boxers. The first female interloping in this sweaty, testosterone world, she's given a supply closet as a makeshift girls' locker room and strives to tune her raw power into precision and stamina with help of a washed-up boxer-turned-coach (Jaime Tirelli) who surprises even himself by believing in her.

Blue Crush Review


OK

The 40 or so minutes that the newfangled surf-girls movie "Blue Crush" spends in the water is a cinematic blast of pipe-riding pleasure. Post-feminist and almost the antithesis of a "Gidget" flick, it also has a bit more going for it than just bikini babes and bitchin' waves. But its plot is ankle deep at best -- an amalgam of sports and summer love clichés that act as an undertow into the past it's trying to leave behind.

Accessible, freckle-nosed blonde knockout Kate Bosworth (who had small roles in "Remember the Titans" and "The Horse Whisperer") stars as Anne Marie, a gifted, Hawaii-raised board bunny with an ambition toward surfing fame and fortune. But a dysfunctional home life and haunting memories of a near-death wipeout are holding her back.

She lives in a shabby beach shack with her two best friends Eden (Michelle Rodriguez) and Lena (Sanoe Lake), with whom she surfs every morning before they show up late for their low-paying house-cleaning jobs at a ritzy resort hotel. Lip service is paid to the fact that Anne Marie is raising her rebellious 14-year-old sister (Mika Boorem) because mom's off gallivanting with "a meal ticket who doesn't like the kids menu."

S.W.A.T. Review


Terrible

When even the dynamic, charismatic, scenery-chomping Samuel L. Jackson seems so bored that he might as well be phoning in his performance, you know your action movie is a lifeless failure.

For the first hour of "S.W.A.T.," an assemble-the-team super-cop movie long on testosterone clichés and short on everything else, there isn't even a plot -- just shopworn stock scenes recycled from 100 other cop movies. Shaky, pseudo-gritty "Cops"-style footage shows fearless tactical teams taking down violent bank robbers in a massive shoot-out! Order-disobeying heroes are chewed out and busted down to menial posts by WASPy, career-minded higher-ups who just don't know what it's like on the streets!
