How to Watch Fast & Furious Movies In Order

You wouldn’t expect a burly international action franchise like Fast & Furious to have the most complicated timeline. Then again, who predicted the 2001 original about some humble street racing would witness its sequels dragging bank vaults across asphalt, jumping out of planes, sliding off submarines, and likely soon making contact with alien life in deep space?

Some of these Fast & Furious sequels are set later in the timeline, even though they were made earlier than others. To watch the F&F movies in chronological order as the events unfolded, you can still start with the first two: The Fast and the Furious and 2 Fast 2 Furious. Tokyo Drift is the third in the series but actually set way later in the timeline, so you’ll want to skip that and jump to Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious 6. Then you can watch Tokyo Drift.

After that, hop to franchise best Furious 7. Follow it up with The Fate of the Furious and spin-off Hobbs & Shaw and then the latest: F9.

All Fast & Furious Movies Ranked

From bursting out the nose of an exploding plane, to skipping skyscraper to skyscraper, to gently guiding a bank safe across public roads and additional civil engineering, the Fast & Furious franchise has made its mission delivering more outrageous action than the previous movies could ever muster. And as the stunts got crazier for Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and the whole F&F-in’ family, critics were just as willing to go along for the ride. It was finally the fifth Furious film that earned the franchise’s first Fresh. And since then it’s been on a skyward trajectory, like a souped-up Karmann Ghia ramping off an Arrakis sandworm and barrel rolling between a fleet of nuclear dirigibles (you know we’re heading in this direction). Furious 7 reached a high emotional crescendo in the wake of Walker’s death, while follow-up F8 saw a dip, though stayed in the Fresh lane.

The latest include spin-off Hobbs & Shaw and the long-delayed F9. Now that the whole family’s here, see all Fast & Furious movies ranked by Tomatometer!

As we all settle in to stay at home and socially distance ourselves, the planet has been given a unique resource not often afforded in the modern world: time. With no place to go, what shall we do with this new abundance of free hours? Time to finish that book you have had on your bedside table? Maybe take an online French class or learn to play an instrument? Time to binge every series that ever was? Or perhaps, like us, you’re thinking of all the films you wished you’d seen but never had the time to before.

Maybe one of those epic movie franchises that seemed too daunting to jump into late in the game – don’t ever admit you’ve never seen an MCU movie, ever – or a series of which you’ve caught a few entries but want to fill in the gaps. Fear not  we have you covered with our Epic Franchise Movie Binge Guide. Read below as we break down some of the most beloved long-running movie franchises – like The Lord of the Rings, Mission Impossible, or the granddaddy of them all, the Marvel Cinematic Universe – and tell you the best way to approach watching them, how long the binge will take, and which titles you can skip. Because hey, even all the time in the world may not be enough time to make you sit through A Good Day to Die Hard.

Disagree with our picks or have a suggestion for a franchise movie binge? Let us know in the comments. 


The Lord of the Rings

What is it: The film adaptations of the fantasy novels by J.R.R. Tolkien, set in ”Middle-earth,” the fictitious medieval land where elves, men, dwarves, wizards, and hobbits co-exist, often not so peacefully. Over the course of several films, we follow hobbit Bilbo Baggins and later his young heir Frodo Baggins as they go on adventures and battle against the forces of evil. 

How many hours: Extended editions: 20 hours 30 minutes; Theatrical cuts: 17 hours and 12 minutes.

Starts with:  The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)  

Ends with: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)  

Best way to watch: Some would argue the second trilogy – though the first by story chronology – from Peter Jackson was an unnecessary and bloated cash grab that should be avoided at all costs, but we have a better suggestion. We suggest you begin with the LOTR animated film from 1978, which will give you all the events of the films in a quicker and to-the-point format. Then, if you are compelled to see the best of The Hobbit live-action series, we would say check out the standard edition of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which is the best of the three. We would also suggest you try to watch the extended editions of the original live-action LOTR series – they are more than worth it for the extra content. This recommendation would make for a shorter, 16-hour watch, which could be broken up easily over two days. 

Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discount Bundle), Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. The Two Towers and The Lord of The Rings: The Return of the King standard editions are streaming on Netflix.


Marvel Cinematic Universe

What is it: The 23-film saga that chronicles the epic adventures of various superheroes, based on the comics first distributed by Marvel and its subsidiaries. 

How many hours: 50 hours and 3 minutes.

Starts with:   Iron Man (2008)  

Ends with:  Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

Best way to watch: Not surprising for a franchise that grossed over $22 billion at the global box office, but Marvel Studios’ 23-film, decade-long opus is quite watchable as is. Some folks would have argued in 2010 that Avengers: The Age of Ultron is a skippable mess, but as we detail here, it is essential viewing to truly appreciate the first four phases of the saga that culminated with Avengers: Endgame. Sorry for those looking for a shortcut, but watching it all is worth it. Viewing all 23 movies straight through, without breaks, however, is not the way to do it.

Instead, we suggest you go in release order and complete each day as follows: day one after Avengers; day two after Ant-man; day three after Black Panther; and finish on day four with Spider-Man: Far From Home. If you’ve previously watched the MCU and are looking to watch it in a new way, use our guide here to watch in chronological order based on the events of each film. If the thought of 50 hours of superheroes is still too intimidating for you, but you want to understand enough to get by, watch these character introduction films (Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy) and these team-up films (Civil War, Winter Soldier, Avengers, Ultron, Infinity War, Endgame). Once you have finished that, check out our Oral Histories of the MCU, in which the directors, producer, and casting director who worked on the epic franchise break down all the behind-the-scene secrets.

Where to watch: FandangoNOW, Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. All of the films save The Incredible Hulk and the Spider-Man films are streaming on Disney+. The Avengers: Infinity War and The Avengers: Endgame are streaming on Netflix; and Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, and Thor are streaming on Amazon Prime.


Die Hard Franchise

What is it: Follow John McClane, a police detective who seems to be a magnet for maniacal criminals no matter which city/structure he is in, and proves to be a tough man to kill.

How many hours: 10 hours and 14 minutes.

Starts with:  Die Hard (1988)

Ends with: A Good Day to Die Hard (2013)

Best way to watch: The original Die Hard is so beloved that many argue it’s the greatest action film ever made – or maybe the greatest Christmas movie, but that is a debate for another day. The film and its follow-ups have a loyal fanbase, and though the second and third entries pale in comparison to the first, we still say they’re worth a watch. The fourth film, Live Free or Die Hard, is a true return to form and, frankly, it’s where you should stop unless you are a true completist. The series’ most recent film, A Good Day to Die Hard, is the only PG-13 entry on the list, and without McClane’s iconic “Yippee-ki-yay, motherf–ker,” there’s really no point pushing play.

Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discounted Bundle), Amazon,  iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. Die Hard and Die Hard with a Vengeance are streaming now on CinemaxGoLive Free or Die Hard is streaming on the Starz app.


The Fast & Furious Franchise

What is it: Follow Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew, which he calls his family, as they shift from illegal street-racing criminals to heist experts and then finally emerge as a new crime-fighting unit that tackles the world of espionage.

How many hours: 15 hours and 57 mins. 

Starts with: The Fast and the Furious (2001)

Ends with:  Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

Best way to watch: As Dom and everyone in the Fast franchise says – quite often – this is about family. So, if you’re looking for something to skip, it’s hard to imagine who you’d want to kick out one of the family – though, let’s be honest, 2 Fast 2 Furious is definitely not Dad’s favorite. Without Vin Diesel, that entry can barely call itself a Fast and Furious movie, and the 2009 series soft reboot, Fast & Furious, is not much better and an easy call to skip, as well. We would caution against skipping third entry Toyko Drift; its charms are significantly more than its 37% Tomatometer score would suggest (something we wax about in our book Rotten Movies We Love). Not to spoil anything, but when we finally get Fast 9 in 2021, you’ll need to have seen Tokyo Drift to understand everything fully – check out #JusticeForHan after you finish the series, and you will understand. 

Where to watch: FandangoNOW, Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. Hobbs & Shaw and Fast Five are streaming on HBOnow; Fast 6 is streaming on FXnow.


Rocky Franchise

What is it: Follow Philly underdog boxer-turned-champion, Rocky Balboa, as he battles various fighters in the ring, as well as his own issues outside of it, and later trains the next generation of champions.

How many hours: 14 hours and 55 minutes. 

Starts with: Rocky (1976)

Ends with:  Creed II (2018)

Best way to watch: This one’s real simple: trust us and skip Rocky V. Just pretend it didn’t happen; we’re pretty sure Sylvester Stallone did. 

Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discount Bundle), Amazon, iTunes, VuduGooglePlayRocky Balboa is streaming on the Starz appCreed II is streaming on Hulu and Amazon.


Harry Potter / Wizarding World Franchise

What is it: The franchise based on JK Rowling’s phenomenally successful novels follows the adventures of Harry Potter, an orphan-turned-famed wizard, the evil He Who Must Not Be Named, and the Wizarding World they inhabit.

How many hours: 24 hours and 6 minutes. 

Starts with:   Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

Ends with:  Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)

Best way to watch: As this is a British series, allow us to put this as politely as possible: Fantastic Beasts is simply not quite on form. The first entry is saved by Eddie Redmayne and mesmerizing magical effects; the second entry is the first and only Rotten flick from the Wizarding World and very skippable at this stage. The original seven films are near perfect, but if you wanted to pass over The Chamber of Secrets you wouldn’t miss much – you won’t be too confused later in the series. (Though if watching as a family, this is one the kids tend to like.) If you follow that suggestion, you can finish the entire series in one day.

Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discount Bundle), Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlayFantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is streaming on HBONow.


X-Men Franchise

What Is It: Follow Professor Charles Xavier and his X-Men as they try to save the world and the lives of their fellow Mutants. Professor X and co. work with, and sometimes against, mutants like the powerful Magneto, Wolverine, and the wisecracking mercenary Deadpool.
How many hours: 21 hours and 43 minutes.

Starts with:   X-Men: First Class (2011)

Ends with:  Logan (2017)

How to watch: The critics will tell you that both X-Men: The Last Stand (the third of the original films) and X-Men: Apocalypse (the third of the rebooted, second-gen films) are shells of their brilliant predecessors. And with the last X-Men film to enter theaters, Dark Phoenix, disappointing on the Tomatometer and at the box office, you should essentially skip any film that has anything to do with Jean Gray’s Dark Phoenix. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is admittedly a hard watch to suffer through, but you kinda have to just to appreciate the brilliance of Deadpool and its sequel, if only for what they did differently with the character. Every film that character is in after Origins highlights why Ryan Reynolds was born to play the “Merc with a Mouth.”

Watching in the order of events is the best way to approach things if you don’t want to be confused by the time travel that happens later in the series. That order is: First Class, Days of Future Past, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, X-Men Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix, X-Men, X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, The Wolverine, Deadpool, Deadpool 2, Logan. If you leave off the aforementioned weakest entries (The Last Stand, Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix) you can complete the entire series in one day.

Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discount Bundle), Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. X-Men: Days of Future Past and Deadpool are streaming on FXNowX-Men Origins: Wolverine is available to stream on the Starz app. 


Jurassic Park Franchise

What is it: In these films, we welcome you to Jurassic Park, a theme park – and eventually various associated islands, mansions, West Coast cities – where dinosaurs have been genetically recreated to walk the Earth alongside humans. Over the course of series we watch as that combination invariably doesn’t work out well for the humans.

How many hours: 10 hours and 1 minute.

Starts with:  Jurassic Park (1993)

Ends with:  Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)

Best way to watch: This was a subject of contentious debate among the RT staff: some thought the Jurassic World part of the franchise is unwatchable, while others had strong takes on Jurassic Park 3 and The Lost World. As this is only a five-film series so far, we compromised: Watch them all and make your own determinations. Either way, we all agreed that the original Jurassic Park is a bona fide classic, and if you haven’t seen it, please remedy this injustice as soon as possible. It only takes a day to watch them all. 

Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discount Bundle), Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is streaming on CinemaxGo.


Mission Impossible Franchise

What is it: Watch secret agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his crew of talented spies as they battle the world’s most dangerous criminals along with the bureaucracy of his own organization, the IMF. The films are based on the 1960s television show.

How many hours: 13 hours and 3 minutes.

Starts with:   Mission: Impossible (1996)

Ends with:  Mission: Impossible -- Fallout (2018)

Best way to watch: It’s apparent after six films (with a seventh on the way): Tom Cruise really likes playing Ethan Hunt. And with every film, Cruise looks to top the jaw-dropping stunts from the last. Still, there is a stark contrast between the first three films and the rest, in regards to quality and scope. Many will tell you the second film, directed by John Woo, and the third, directed by J.J. Abrams, are the weakest of the set, but they’re still thoroughly enjoyable and feature some truly astonishing stunts – so we suggest you watch them all. And thankfully this is not – yes, we’re gonna say it – impossible to do in one or two days. 

Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discount Bundle), Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. Mission Impossible: Fallout is streaming on Amazon Prime and Hulu; Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation are streaming on FXNow.


James Bond Franchise

What is it: James Bond, MI6 intelligence officer and international playboy, charms women, thwarts terrorist plots, and sips a shaken martini in well-tailored suits. Based on Ian Fleming’s iconic novels.

How many hours: 55 hours and 11 minutes.

Starts with:  Dr. No (1962)

Ends with:   Spectre (2015)

Best way to watch: For completists, we recommend you start with the Connery films on day one, then do a day of Timothy Dalton, David Niven (the satire Casino Royale from 1967), and George Lazenby’s films, adding one or two of Roger Moore’s. Finish with Moore on day three, then do a full day of Pierce Brosnan for day four, and end the series on day five with Daniel Craig. If that’s a bit too daunting, you can break up the films we suggested for one day across two days instead. If you’re looking for a few to skip, we’d suggest A View to Kill and Octopussy. We’d also suggest you skip Never Say Never Again, as it is a shadow of Connery’s older work; Moonraker is only enjoyable for how laughable it is; and there’s not enough vodka on earth to make The World is Not Enough a good time. Quantum of Solace is another one you can miss, but at least watch the opening scene – it’s fantastic.

Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discount Bundle), Amazon, Itunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough, and Die Another Day are streaming on NetflixQuantum of Solace and Casino Royale (1967) are streaming on HBONow.


Star Trek Franchise

What is it: These are the stories of the USS Enterprise, crafted for the silver screen. Watch Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and later Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) as they lead their crews to the furthest reaches of the universe on a peacekeeping mission to discover new worlds. The films are based on the Star Trek television series and its subsequent spin-offs.

How many hours: 25 hours and 17 minutes.

Starts with:  Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

Ends with:  Star Trek Beyond (2016)

Best way to watch: At the risk of angering the original series Trekkies, the first film – Star Trek: The Motion Picture – is simply not very good (it’s 42% on the Tomatometer). The same can be said of The Final Frontier. When we shift into The Next Generation part of the franchise, the series starts off strong but fizzles with Star Trek: Nemesis. We suggest you should skip those four. When you start the reboot franchise, some would advise you to skip Star Trek: Into Darkness, which was much maligned by the fandom but which we say is worth seeing for Benedict Cumberbatch, if nothing else. As far as ordering your binge, watching the series as the films were released is the way to go. Begin with the first set of films featuring the original series characters, followed by the films centering on the cast of The Next Generation, and finish with the reboot films that started in 2009. If you are skipping films following our advice, the new order is original series (The Wrath of Khan, Search for Spock, The Voyage HomeUndiscovered Country), followed by the Next Generation films (Generations, First Contact, Insurrection), and finishing with the 2009 reboot films (Star Trek, Into Darkness, Beyond).

Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discount Bundle), Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. Star Treks 1-6, First Contact, Insurrection, and Generations are streaming AmazonStar Trek: Into Darkness is streaming on FXnow; and Star Trek Nemesis, First Contact, Generations are streaming on Crackle.

Thor: Ragnarok only needed to get a 67% on the Tomatometer to improve upon The Dark World‘s score. Looks like all this franchise needed was some new zeal and New Zealand director Taika Waititi because Ragnarok is currently scoring way higher than that, which inspires this week’s gallery of 24 most improved movie sequels by Tomatometer!

There’s no shortage of movies playing at your local cineplex this weekend, but for filmgoers craving high-octane action, there’s really only one option: The Fate of the Furious, which brings the blockbuster Fast & Furious franchise roaring to its eighth installment. While we wait to see what Dom, Luke, Letty, Roman, and the rest of the gang are up to this time out, we decided to take a look back at the rest of the series by Tomatometer — and you know what that means. Buckle up, it’s time for Total Recall!

Seven movies. Dozens of featured cars. Hundreds of millions in property damage. As the eighth Fast & Furious movie, The Fate of the Furious, exits the garage, now’s the time to take our gallery quiz matching F&F stars to their badass cars!

If you missed last weekend’s Comic-Con (see RT’s full coverage
here), you’re
in luck; it’s a particularly geeky week for DVD. Kicking things off are Fox’s
live-action adaptation of one of Japan’s best loved mangas (the disappointing
adventure Dragonball: Evolution), the fourth in a franchise for car lovers (Fast
& Furious
, starring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker), and DC’s latest animated
feature (Green Lantern: First Flight). But what could be nerdier than this
week’s new TV series on DVD? Pick from Battlestar Galactica Season 4.5,
Battlestar Galactica The Complete Series, Dr. Who, Torchwood, and Joss Whedon’s
Dollhouse Season One! Read on.


Fast & Furious

28%



If
the previous three franchise films were too fast, too furious, then the fourth
flick about gear heads and racers is what we like to call “faster and more
furious to an even greater degree.” Of course, it’s also about brooding bromance,
as we find former buds Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Brian O’Connor (Paul
Walker) together again for the first time since 2001’s The Fast and The Furious.
Reunited under tragic circumstances, Dom and Brian must work together undercover
to infiltrate the inner circle of a drug runner; naturally, we get car chases,
explosions, and hot eye candy galore.  DVD extras make for a great time if
you’re into autos, as you’ll find plenty of features reveal the making of the
film and the many import and muscle cars that appear — as well as the
Diesel-directed short film Los Bandeleros, which shows the gang’s adventures in
the Dominican Republic leading up to the fourth film. Yes, a prequel to the
prequel; Fast and Furious 4.5?

Next: Anime comes to life in Dragonball: Evolution



Somewhere
in its development, 20th Century Fox’s Hollywood adaptation of the
long-running Dragonball manga/anime property got lost in translation. The
result, a big-budget fantasy adventure that cherry-picked characters and story
lines and homogenized most of its cast (led by Justin Chatwin as Goku and Emmy
Rossum as Bulma), was too unfaithful to its source for fans, and too confusing
for newcomers. Add to that some awful creature make-up that had poor Buffy alum
James Marsters growling under green make-up and prosthetics as the evil,
misunderstood Piccolo, and you’ve got one big Asian fusion mess. Special
features include deleted scenes, stunt and behind-the-scenes featurettes, and
interactive games.

Next: Get close with Zoe Bell, Angel of Death



If
you’re familiar with the works of Quentin Tarantino, then you’re probably
already a fan of stuntwoman-turned-actress Zoe Bell, a woman so awesome that
Tarantino wrote an entire role for her in his Grindhouse flick, Death Proof.
(Remember the game of Ship’s Mast? That was her.) This week, Bell gets her first
starring role in Angel of Death, a web miniseries now being released as a
feature-length DVD. Like a female Jason Bourne, Bell plays an assassin who loses
her memory (a knife to the head’ll do that for you) and sets out to destroy her
former employers; Bell’s co-stars include Xena buddy Lucy Lawless (for
whom she stunt doubled), Ted Raimi, and Doug Jones.

Big Man Japan


77%



It’s
hard to describe Big Man Japan, but here goes: a middle-aged divorcé
(writer-actor-director Hitoshi Matsumoto) in contemporary Tokyo lives alone with
few joys in life, thanks to his day job as Japan’s national hero, which requires
him to morph into a supersized building-smasher to battle the giant kaiju
creatures that come to wreak havoc, Godzilla-style, on the country. But hard
times have befallen the superhero niche; Dai-Nipponjin (translated: Big Man
Japan) finds himself subject to the fairweather adoration of the public, who
watch his battles on television, and even his publicist has taken to selling ad
space on his enormous body. With public interest waning and his confidence
shaken, what’s Dai-Nipponjin to do? Shot documentary style, this satire is a
Japanophile’s delight; a making-of featurette and deleted scenes are included.

Next: Raise the Green Lantern



No
wonder this year’s Comic-Con was overrun with nerds in Green Lantern tees! The
latest feature-length animated DC film, Green Lantern was such a hit last
weekend in San Diego, programmers added a second screening for fans. First
Flight
tells the origin story of Hal Jordan (voiced by Law & Order‘s Christopher Meloni), an earthling who unexpectedly receives the Green Lantern ring and must
then prove his worth to the intergalactic Lantern Corps while battling a
sinister frenemy named Sinestro (Victor Garbo). Con reviews pegged this
anime-tinged feature as a bit light on back story, but you fans already know
what’s up; why not get to the brutal action and space opera dramatics? Among the
disc’s extras, find a sneak peek at the next DC Animated flick, Batman/Superman:
Public Enemies

Next: Bart Got a Room (and a DVD release)

Bart Got a Room
— 71%



Though
the real star of Bart Got a Room might just be William H. Macy’s glorious jewfro
(pictured above), critics enjoyed this sweet high school comedy about a band
nerd (Steven Kaplan) torn between wooing his hot carpool crush (Ashley Benson)
and taking the girl next door (Alia Shawkat) to prom. First time director Brian
Hecker based this American Pie-like tale on his own dateless teen years — an
experience that lends Bart  an air of authenticity, albeit a
cringe-inducing authenticity.


Next: An Affair that’s hard to remember?



Gretchen
Mol and Cameron Bright star in this poorly received piece of historical fiction
about a teenage boy (Bright, soon to be seen in The Twilight Saga: New Moon) in
1963 Washington, D.C., whose crush on a hot neighbor (Mol) leads unexpectedly to
a conspiracy plot to assassinate President Kennedy. Clichés muddle the plot,
which attempts to mash together a coming-of-age tale and a political thriller,
with mixed results. Fans of Mol, however, will enjoy the actresses’ steamy (and
scantily clad) scenes.

Next: Sci-fi TV DVDs galore!



Sci-fi
TV nerds, take note: your pocketbooks are going to get a lot lighter this week.
We’ll begin with the piece de resistance: the 20-disc, four-season Battlestar
Galactica
: The Complete Series box set. Packed in a BSG cube (with an 8″ Cylon
Centurion figure included), this set ain’t cheap ($349.99 list price) but
contains just about every BSG-related item known to man, including the
Miniseries and an unrated and extended version of the Razor telefilm. A
newly-filmed introduction by creator Ron Moore kicks off each section, leading
over 70 hours of bonus content. You can literally spend almost three days
straight watching the extra features alone, people!

The Battlestar complete set is being released in
conjunction with Season 4.5, which is also available separately. If you already
own the previous seasons, picking up S4.5 on its own will be a far more
affordable way to complete your collection. Deleted scenes, tons of featurettes,
and cast and crew commentaries supplement the four-disc set.

As if that weren’t enough to sate your geek thirst
this week, put these TV on DVD titles on your shopping list: Dr. Who: Planet
of the Dead
, extending a select episode of celebrated doc David Tennant;
Torchwood: Children of Earth, a five-part miniseries spun off from Dr. Who;
and Dollhouse Season 1, Joss Whedon’s latest creation starring Eliza Dushku.

Next: Criterion attracts serious movie watchers with Repulsion



Roman
Polanski’s English-language debut starred a young Catherine Deneuve as Carol, a
schizophrenic woman whose paranoia turns to madness over the course of the film.
Polanski heightens the tension with horror movie tricks, playing up Carol’s
psychologically-fabricated hallucinations to great effect. Presented on Blu-ray
by Criterion, Repulsion has been digitally restored and includes a 1994
commentary with Deneuve and Polanski, an archival set feature, a 16-page booklet
with critical essay, and more.

Torso
— N/A



If
it gives you any indication of what this film contains, Eli Roth once told RT
that Torso was one of his favorite horror movies. The 1973 Italian giallo
film is  favorite among exploitation cinema watchers, although its plot is
relatively simple: when murders start happening on a college campus, four co-eds
flee to the countryside, unaware that the killer has followed them! British
actress Suzy Kendall (recognizable from the giallo classic The Bird with the
Crystal Plumage
) stars.

Until next week, happy renting!

The turbo-charged racing sequel Fast & Furious crushed its competitors and blew away all industry expectations with a launch that shattered the April opening weekend box office record. And with the animated hit Monsters vs. Aliens still doing solid business in its second frame, the overall marketplace powered its way to the highest-grossing April session ever. Together, the two juggernauts grossed more this weekend than the entire marketplace did during this same frame in 2008 continuing a scorching hot year for movie ticket sales.

Universal won first place by an enormous margin with the heavily-hyped Fast & Furious which bowed to an estimated $72.5M from 3,461 theaters for an eye-popping $20,950 average. It was easily the biggest debut of the year racing past the $59.3M of Monsters from just last weekend, and it smashed the old record for April openers held by Anger Management with $42.2M in 2003. The fourth installment in the popular racing series even posted the second largest debut ever in the entire January-to-April corridor trailing only The Passion of the Christ‘s $83.8M from February 2004. It was a summer-like opening in the middle of spring.

[rtimage]MapID=1196211&MapTypeID=2&photo=82&legacy=1[/rtimage]

The new Fast not only sped past the opening weekend grosses of all previous installments in the franchise, but it also attracted a larger audience even when ticket price increases are factored in. Openings for the lucrative series included $40.1M for 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, $50.5M for 2003’s 2 Fast 2 Furious, and $24M for 2006’s The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift which featured a new cast and setting. At today’s ticket prices, those figures would amount to roughly $52M, $61M, and $27M respectively. In just three days, the new Fast even beat Tokyo Drift‘s overall total of $62.5M. With a combined $334M domestically from the first three models, the Furious franchise could now soar past the $500M mark.

The wild success this weekend can be attributed to many factors including marketing, the release date, and the casting. Universal had a tough job convincing fans to take a fourth trip with the decade-old franchise and so the four primary cast members of the first surprise hit were brought back together with a brilliant campaign led by the appealing tagline “New Model. Original Parts.” The cool factor was back. Moviegoers were drawn in by the starpower and the promise of a true adrenaline rush. The studio also made a bold move shifting the release date from June 12 where it would have faced intense summer competition, to early April where the road was clear of any traffic. The PG-13 pic had teens and young adults all to itself this weekend. And the whole industry will benefit since millions of movie fans saw trailers for the first wave of summer blockbusters.

[rtimage]MapID=1196211&MapTypeID=2&photo=83&legacy=1[/rtimage]

For the weekend, Fast surged to a jaw-dropping $30.5M on Friday, then fell 19% to $24.7M on Saturday, and is estimated to drop by 30% on Sunday to $17.3M. College basketball semi-finals cut into some business with young males on Saturday night. If Universal’s estimate holds, it will rank as the studio’s biggest debut ever. That record is still held by Steven Spielberg’s 1997 dino-sequel The Lost World which bowed to $72.1M over the Friday-to-Sunday portion of its holiday opening (or $115M at today’s prices.) Should Fast see a more common Sunday decline of 35-40%, it would still rake in $70M over the weekend. Final box office data including actual Sunday sales figures will be reported on Monday.

The Vin DieselPaul Walker reunion also opened overseas in 32 international territories this weekend and banked another $30.1M for a global launch of $102.6M. Many top markets are still to come including Russia, France, and the United Kingdom which all open next weekend.

[rtimage]MapID=1194516&MapTypeID=2&photo=16&legacy=1[/rtimage]

After its top spot debut last weekend, the DreamWorks Animation hit Monsters vs. Aliens fell to second place but still attracted a large audience dropping 44% to an estimated $33.5M haul. Compared to other big March toons, the decline fell in between the 35% sophomore dip of Ice Age in 2002 and the 50% fall of its sequel Ice Age: The Meltdown in 2006. The ten-day tally for Monsters rose to $105.7M which is 9% behind the pace of Meltdown after the same period of time but up 21% over the first Ice Age. Ginormica and pals may find themselves battling their way to the neighborhood of $175M domestically.

The spookfest The Haunting in Connecticut fell a sharp 59% in its second weekend to an estimated $9.6M settling into third place. Lionsgate’s hit thriller has banked an impressive $37.2M in ten days and looks headed for a $50M finish.

Nicolas Cage saw his latest action entry Knowing fall 45% to an estimated $8.1M giving Summit $58.2M after 17 days of release. Over the same time period, Paramount’s raunchy comedy I Love You, Man has collected $49.3M thanks to an estimated $7.9M this weekend. For the second frame in a row, the R-rated laugher posted the smallest decline in the top ten.

[rtimage]MapID=1196389&MapTypeID=2&photo=6&legacy=1[/rtimage]

The new theme park comedy Adventureland debuted to mild results with an estimated $6M opening from 1,862 locations. Averaging a lukewarm $3,228 per theater, the R-rated coming-of-age pic starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristin Stewart earned very strong reviews but failed to capitalize on them at the multiplexes. Its target audience of older teens and young adults were clearly distracted by fast cars this weekend. Adventureland bowed to $2.2M on Friday, remained flat on Saturday with $2.2M again, and is estimated by Miramax to slip by a very low 22% on Sunday to $1.7M.

The spy comedy Duplicity starring Julia Roberts and Clive Owen dropped 44% to an estimated $4.3M pushing the total to $32.4M for Universal. Following in eighth was Disney’s Race to Witch Mountain with an estimated $3.4M, down 42%, for a $58.4M sum. The John Cena actioner 12 Rounds tumbled 57% in its sophomore effort to an estimated $2.3M giving Fox a weak ten-day cume of only $9M.

[rtimage]MapID=1202764&MapTypeID=2&photo=2&legacy=1[/rtimage]

The indie comedy hit Sunshine Cleaning starring Amy Adams and Emily Blunt expanded again in its fourth weekend and jumped into the top ten right at number ten grossing an estimated $1.9M. Averaging a respectable $3,923 from 479 sites, the Overture release has successfully widened its run throughout the country each week and has upped the total to $4.8M.

The top ten films grossed an estimated $149.4M which was up a stunning 96% from last year when 21 remained in the top spot with $15.3M; and up a sizable 43% from 2007 when Blades of Glory stayed at number one with $22.5M.

This week at the movies, we’ve got speedy cars (Fast & Furious, starring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker) and a languid summer (Adventureland, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart). What do the critics have to say?



[tomatometer]MuzeID=1196211[/tomatometer]

Fast & Furious

Fast & Furious is the fourth installment of the venerable cars-going-vroom franchise, and unfortunately, critics say it’s the weakest of the lot. The principals from the first film, The Fast and the Furious — including Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster — are back, and they pick up where they left off. Diesel plays Dom, an ex-con who’s still bitter at undercover cop Brian (Paul Walker), but soon, the pair join forces to investigate the death of a mutual associate. The pundits say this franchise is running on fumes; though Fast & Furious features some decent stunts, its groan-worthy dialogue, indifferent performances, and lack of dramatic momentum make for a pretty middling — albeit shiny — package. (Check out this week’s Total Recall, in which we compile Vin Diesel’s best-reviewed films.)



[tomatometer]MuzeID=1196389[/tomatometer]

Adventureland

Greg Mottola is building a solid rep as an astute chronicler of coming-of-age joys and pains. Hot on the heels of Superbad is Adventureland, a dramedy that critics say dishes laughs and sentiment with a deft hand. Jesse Eisenberg stars as James, a college grad who gets a job at an amusement park. With the help of Em, a cute co-worker (Kristen Stewart), his wacky bosses (Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig), and his slacker co-workers (Martin Starr, Ryan Reynolds, and others) he learns a thing or two about life. The pundits say Adventureland is bright, funny, sharply acted and deeply heartfelt; throw in a killer soundtrack, and you’ve got a Certified Fresh movie. (Also, be sure to see which movies Greg picked as his Five Favorite Films.)


Also opening this week in limited release:

  • Tulpan, a visually remarkable tale of unrequited love on a Kazakh steppe, is at 92 percent.
  • Sugar, a drama about a Dominican pitcher determined to make it to the big leagues and lift his family out of destitution, is at 90 percent.
  • The Iranian import The Song of Sparrows, about a runaway ostrich, is at 90 percent.
  • Forbidden Lie$, a documentary about the fallout from a fabricated memoir, is at 86 percent.
  • The Escapist, a British prison break thriller starring Brian Cox and Joseph Fiennes, is at 79 percent.
  • Bart Got A Room, a comedy about a nerdy high schooler seeking a prom date starring Steven Kaplan and William H. Macy, is at 69 percent.
  • Paris 36, a period piece about some neighborhood friends who attempt to mount a musical, is at 65 percent.
  • Lifelines, a dark comedy about a family whose secrets are brought to light by their therapist, is at 62 percent.
  • Enlighten Up!, a documentary by a devoted yoga practitioner who attempts to use the ancient art to transform her skeptical subject, is at 57 percent.
  • Gigantic, starring Paul Dano and Zooey Deschanel in an indie comedy about the strange relationship between two wayward twentysomethings, is at 54 percent.
  • Alien Trespass, an homage/parody of 1950s sci-fi flicks, is at 31 percent.

Finally, props to Speaker for the Films for coming the closes to guessing 12 Rounds‘ 23 percent Tomatometer.

Universal makes a serious play at setting a new April opening weekend box office record with its street racing four-quel Fast & Furious which should lead the marketplace to a scorching spring frame. The only other new film attempting to steal away audiences is the quirky theme park comedy Adventureland which opens in about half as many theaters. With last weekend’s champ Monsters vs. Aliens still doing strong business, the industry could for the first time in history see two films gross over $30M each in the traditionally slow month of April.

Keeping the eight-year-old franchise going, Universal unleashes Fast & Furious on Friday hoping to reclaim old glory by reuniting the four principal cast members of the original surprise blockbuster. Starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster, the PG-13 film is aimed at teens and young adults with a need for speed. Broad appeal across all ethnic groups will help widen the audience as with previous chapters. Given the age of the series, sales from the 30-plus crowd could make the debut bigger allowing it to challenge Anger Management’s record April bow of $42.2M.

Openings for the franchise include $40.1M for 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, $50.5M for 2003’s 2 Fast 2 Furious, and $24M for 2006’s The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift which featured a new cast and setting. At today’s ticket prices, those figures would amount to roughly $52M, $61M, and $27M respectively. Clearly a part of the audience has eroded away over the years and each film featured less and less of the “original parts”. Universal really had no way to get fans back for a fourth lap but to reunite the stars from the first pic.

The new FF is a comeback vehicle for Vin Diesel who has only had two starring roles in the past four years – the back-to-back flops Find Me Guilty and Babylon A.D. Walker, Rodriguez, and Brewster have never been big box office draws anyway so the promise of a big paycheck in a very high-profile film certainly helped to lure each actor. Reaching the opening weekend takes of the first two chapters (adjusted for today’s prices) will probably be out of reach. Part of the appeal back then was that this fresh new concept spoke to a new generation of young people. But the fan base is still huge and the original cast will spark tons of interest.

With a strong marketing campaign, limited competition for its target audience, theaters booking multiple auditoriums, and the buzz surrounding its reunited cast, Fast & Furious should finish in first place with a big sack of cash. Racing into more than 3,400 locations, a Friday-to-Sunday debut of about $43M could occur.


Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in Fast and Furious

Miramax offers a different entertainment option for the non-automotive fan with the quirky theme park comedy Adventureland starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. The R-rated pic is being promoted as being from the director of Superbad in hopes of attracting a crowd of older teens and twentysomethings. Starpower will be one of the main tools here in generating business as Eisenberg is known for his critical indie hit The Squid and the Whale, Stewart will be testing her drawing power after co-headlining the vampire smash Twilight, and supporting actors Bill Hader and Kristin Wiig will attempt to draw in the Saturday Night Live audience.

But the promotional push has not been as strong as those for hits like Superbad, Juno, or Little Miss Sunshine although Adventureland clearly wants to appeal to the same folks. Also Stewart’s pull outside of her lucrative franchise may be limited especially with the restrictive rating. A lot of heavy hitters are currently filling up screens in the multiplexes so competition will be a big factor too. That level of urgency just doesn’t seem to be there so many will wait for the DVD. However, reviews have been among the best of any wide release this year so if ticket buyers decide to listen to critics then the coming-of-age film could enjoy a respectable bow. Going out moderately wide in over 1,800 runs, Adventureland may debut to about $8M.


Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in Adventureland

Monsters vs. Aliens has enjoyed a good week following its potent debut grossing another $3.5M on Monday and $3.4M on Tuesday.on its way to a $70M+ opening week tally. With no new kidpics launching this weekend, the stage is set for another impressive frame. A 40% decline would lead to a weekend take of around $35M putting the ten-day sum at a robust $107M for Paramount and DreamWorks Animation. Lionsgate scored big last weekend too with its spookfest The Haunting in Connecticut. Both of the new releases will steal away teens and young adults so a sizable decline is likely. Look for a 55% fall to about $10M for a cume of $38M after ten days.

The doomsday thriller Knowing has done surprisingly well not only in its launch but with its sophomore hold. With a new actioner opening, Summit could see a 45% drop to roughly $8M raising the total after 17 days to $57M. Paramount’s dude comedy I Love You, Man may match up with about $8M as well which would be a 35% drop. Cume would climb to $49M.

LAST YEAR: The gambling drama 21 spent a second weekend at number one with $15.3M dropping only 36% for a solid hold. Jodie Foster‘s adventure Nim’s Island debuted in the runnerup spot with $13.2M and was followed closely by George Clooney‘s football comedy Leatherheads with $12.7M. Final tallies reached $48M for the Fox family film and $31.4M for Universal’s period pigskin pic. The animated hit Horton Hears a Who ranked fourth with $9.1M and the new horror entry The Ruins opened in fifth with $8M on its way to a $17.4M total.
