Can Fast and Furious Be a Hit Without The Rock?

Many people considered ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ to be boring, probably because there is no much interest in the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise after the seventh installment. ‘Fast and Furious 8’ was released only two days before ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ and much to people’s surprise, it was better in many ways.

Besides the fact that ‘Hobbs and Shaw’ promised to become another classic buddy cop movie, it didn’t keep its promise. Instead, it looked like the main characters, Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson were trying too hard to be funny and interesting. Moreover, the fight scene didn’t amaze many viewers, and the action looked very boring. Consequently, the opening weekend numbers were very tame, and it made roughly $60m. However, that’s not what is expected from a $200m movie.

So, the ‘Fast and Furious’ fans were left wondering where does the franchise go from here. Many people have stated that the movie started their downfall the moment they began working to surpass their own ridiculous stunts. Even though the spin-off of the franchise did their best to enhance the plot of the movie, it doesn’t seem to be very successful.

It looks like we’ve seen it all from the franchise, including planes, tanks, and supercars through skyscrapers. The franchise doesn’t have anything new to offer, besides the crazy stunts, they’re trying to pull off. So, this led fans to believe that the series won’t last much longer. The fact that neither the Rock nor Statham will be part of Fast 9 only adds to this belief. However, many fans hope that ‘Hobbs and Shaw’ has the potential of becoming a very successful independent movie franchise.

The Rock is held responsible for revitalizing the franchise, and it’s believed that this is the reason why he doesn’t get on well with Vin Diesel. This raised many questions, such as whether the franchise can be a hit without the Rock and whether or not the ‘Hobbs and Shaw’ spinoff can survive without the ‘Family’?

In a nutshell, the fact that Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham aren’t part of the main Fast series seems to have negative consequences for both franchises.

Everything is good with Fast and Furious 9, now that Dwayne Johnson is gone

/

The filming of the movie Fast and Furious 9 has begun, and we can’t wait for it to be finished.

Considering the posts that the cast and director posted on social media everyone is having so much fun. And they are all having fun without their former co-cast member Dwayne Johnson.

There was a bit of a drama surrounding The Rock and his involvement in this franchise. A couple of years ago Dwayne was accused by Tyrese Gibson that he is ruining the whole series, and all because he was trying to make the movie all about himself.

And the fans of this franchise know that the movies are all about Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and Tyrese Gibson himself. Everything went so wrong that Dwayne and Vin Diesel refused to film any scenes together. But now that drama is finished, and Dwayne Johnson is no longer a cast member of the Fast and Furious.

He did make his own spin-off of the Fast and Furious franchise with his fellow colleague Jason Statham, called Hobbs and Shaw. You’ll need to wait for the movie to come out this summer to see if it is good enough like the Fast and Furious franchise.

But when it comes to Fast and Furious 9 there has been a lot of post on social media posted by the film crew. Vin Diesel posted a video he filmed with his co-star Michelle Rodriguez where they celebrated the first day of filming.

Justin Lin tweeted that it feels like home to be back filming. And Tyrese Gibson also posted on his Instagram profile that he is proud to work with 2 powerful women, and one of them is his managed Isabella Castro.

So it seems that everything is going well and that everyone is doing well and that they are enjoying filming the new movie. And it seems like they are not missing Dwayne.

Now we just have to wait for the filming to end and for the movie to hit the theatres.

What we Know About the New Scooby-Doo Movie

A new Scooby-Doo movie has been announced to release in the spring of 2020 according to ComicYears.com. Fans have loved the detective dog and Mystery Inc. ever since Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! premiered as a Saturday morning cartoon in 1969.

This was an incredibly successful TV series for three seasons and eventually, the Mystery Inc gang made it to the big screen not once, but twice. Now, there are talks of not only a new movie, but other related projects as well.

The Scooby-Doo Phenomenon

Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! was just the beginning for everyone’s favorite crime sniffing dog. The series, which began its run as an animated cartoon in 1969 followed a dog named Scooby-Doo and his friends (Fred, Daphne, Velma, and Shaggy), the Mystery Inc. gang, who solved crimes and faced eerie characters and monsters.

The series featured many great one liners (like “Scooby-dooby-doo! and “rut-roh Raggy”) but the one that is probably the most well-known is what the villain would say at the end of every episode after the Mystery Inc. gang solved the crime, “…and I would have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn’t been for you meddling kids!”

The original animated Scooby series only aired for three seasons; however, through the years, there have been many reboots, including two big screen live action films in the early 2000s.

Live Action Versions

Scooby-Doo was one of the first animated series or movies to receive the live action treatment in the 2000s. Scooby-Doo: The Movie was released in 2002 and was directed by Raja Gosnell (you can get more info on that version here). Gosnell has also directed many other family friendly hits like Home Alone 3, Beverly Hill Chihuahua, and The Smurfs. The live action movie cast included Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, Linda Cardellini, and Rowan Atkinson.

The plot followed the same basic outline of the original series, but was expanded upon in order to fill an entire two hours of crime solving. The Mystery Inc gang had reunited after having gone separate ways for two years, only to meet back up at a horror resort where they were forced to fight supernatural crime once again, consisting of evil demonic forces. Throughout the film, the gang become trapped in different bodies, but eventually solve the crime by working together as a team.  

Following the blockbuster success of Scooby Doo: The Movie, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed was released in 2004.

Fans are hopeful that the new movie will be as good as Scooby-Doo: The Movie, which is arguably the better movie between the two live action films that have been made.

The New Movie

The new Scooby-Doo movie, also known, according to IMDB.com as Scoob is set to hit theatres on May 15, 2020. The new movie is said to feature other Hanna-Barbera characters who recruit Scooby-Doo to find an enchanted collar in order to stop a ghost attack.

Scoob features a star-studded cast with Zac Efron as Fred, Amanda Seyfried as Daphne, Will Forte as Shaggy, and Gina Rodriguez as Velma. Frank Welker, who has been the voice of Scooby-Doo since the original 1960s cartoon will return to voice the great dane.

Matthew Lillard, who has voiced Shaggy since 2002 will not be returning to theatres with this revival of the characters and he made sure to let everyone on Twitter know that he was not happy with the decision. Lillard wrote on Twitter after the new cast was announced, “Well this sucks. What a crappy way to find out…thanks Hollywood. You never cease to amaze me.”

The new movie is set to be directed by Tony Cervone, who directed a few of the animated TV series reboots. The new film will be produced by Chris Columbus, Pam Coats, and Allison Abbate. The film is said to be an animated film, as opposed to live action like the previous two times that the world’s favorite crime sniffing dog has hit the big screen.  

With this film being the first film about Scoob and the gang in 14 years, there are high stakes for this film to do well. Parents will be taking their children and enjoying the nostalgia of it all, while young children will hopefully become new fans of these characters.

At this time, not too much information has been released as far as the plot of the new Scooby-Doo movie; however, now that the cast has been officially announced, the film can begin production. This means that we are all one step closer to being able to go see Scoob! In theatres. Because the film is being directed by a veteran, Tony Cervone, it can also be expected that the film will remain true to the original Scooby-Doo style and basic plot outline and structure. The internet is already going crazy over the cast (in a good way), so the expectations are high.

15 Best Quotes By Rocky Balboa That Will Get You Back on Your Feet

//

It is scientifically impossible to hear eye of the Tiger and not think about Rocky Balboa. The Italian Stallion came from nothing. He started out as a leg breaker or debt collector for a local loan shark Anthony Gazzo, but his ambition is in boxing. When he finally gets a chance to step into the ring with the world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, Rocky shows that he has got what it takes. That is how the story of Rocky begins. With his old coach Mickey and faithful Polly in his corner, Balboa goes on to become a legend.

Many of us have grown up with Rocky, watching him fight his way from suburbs of Philadelphia to the world heavyweight championship. He never quits, even when his body is completely broken. Even when Micky dies, he finds the will to carry on and take the fight to Clubber Lang (played by Mr. T) and takes his belt back. When Apollo is killed in the ring by Ivan Drago, Rocky uses his rage as fuel and travels to Russia to beat Soviet champion in front of his home crowd. As we learned in the latest Creed movie, that fight comes back to haunt both him and Adonis, as Drago’s son tries to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Rocky never claims he is the smartest or strongest guy in the room and that is one of the reasons we love him. He is unpretentious and humble, yet he plows on through life with a will of steel. As he goes, he drops bits of wisdom we all can benefit from. Here are some of our favorite ones.

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”

“Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”

“But to beat me, he’s going to have to kill me. And to kill me, he’s gonna have to have the heart to stand in front of me. And to do that, he’s got to be willing to die himself.”

“I am not the richest, smartest or most talented person in the world, but I succeed because I keep going and going and going.”

“But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody!”

“Time takes everybody out. Time is undefeated”

Img source: wealthygorilla.com

“One step at a time, one punch at a time, one round at a time.”

“You can’t learn anything when you’re talking. That’s a fact of life.”

“You’re gonna have to go through hell, worse than any nightmare you’ve ever dreamed. But when it’s over, I know you’ll be the one standing. You know what you have to do. Do it.”

Img source: scoopnest.com

“Bring back everything that’s ever hurt you, all the pain you had inside. They don’t know what we’ve been through. You belong here!”

“Cause if you’re willing to go through all the battling you got to go through to get where you want to get, who’s got the right to stop you?”

“Every once in a while a person comes along who defies the odds, who defies logic, and fulfills an incredible dream.”

More fighting in Hobs & Shaw Trailer

There have been new trailers available for Hobs and Show and they present even more intense fighting and car racing.

The first trailer

The first trailer for this film was released in February 2019 and it introduced a new bad guy called Brixton (Idris Elba had the honor to play this character). However, we show that the old enemies Luke Hobbs (played by Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (played by Jason Statham) have crossed their ways once again so that the ninth part of fast and Furious could be made.

The trailer

The very beginning of the trailer shows us how they both fight some bad guys in Chernobyl. They were so strong together that the opponents did not have any chance. This was also shown when Hobbs yawned during their fight with those bad guys. When the defeated them, they simply used the face of one of them to open the lock that was working on face recognition. The funny scene was during his several try-outs to unlock it with this face since there were several denials.

The plot continues

When they are done in Chernobyl, they decide to go to London since Brixton is threatening the entire world with an attack and he told the world about this during the public broadcast. He then explained that he would simply kill half of the world population by using a virus he has designed and that Shaw’s sister Hattie is also infected with it. Shaw first takes it as a family business while Hobbs initially treat it as a world and global problem and thus his business. We should also add that Helen Mirren is Shaw’s mother and that she is in prison.

Production

The director of this movie is David Leitch, who also directed Deadpool 2, while the script has been written by Chris Morgan. The production of the movie has been mutually done by Morgan, Johnson, Statham and Hiram Garcia while executive producers were Dany Garcia, Kelly McCormick, Steven Chasman, Ethan Smith and Ainsley Davies.
