Riddick
"Fast & Furious" is the franchise that keeps going from strength to strength, while "Riddick," Vin Diesel's other long-running series, is the one that just won't die. Diesel got his big break as the gravel-voiced, contact-lensed psychopath in David Twohy's "Pitch Black" in 2000, and after he became a star, Universal invested big in "The Chronicles of Riddick," and took a financial bath on a film that proved pretty incoherent and ugly (if occasionally intriguing).

Has there ever been a franchise like the "Fast & Furious?" Begun over ten years ago with a film most notable for its '50s-style B-movie title, "The Fast & The Furious," it was a modest sleeper hit. Before long the series saw its biggest draw, the potato-headed growl-monster Vin Diesel, exit the series before it really got going, leading to the Paul Walker solo outing "2 Fast 2 Furious." Unsurprisingly, the box office for that one took a hit, a trend that continued with the Walker-free third outing "The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift." But ever since the series has been on a constant upswing, with "Fast Five" making nearly half-a-billion dollars worldwide, and even winning some critical plaudits, at least for series veteran Justin Lin.

While some filmmakers and studios have done everything in their power to build a mystique around their tentpoles -- think “Star Trek Into Darkness” or “Man Of Steel” -- the team behind “Fast & Furious 6” are clearly of the mind that “more is more.” Though the film hits theaters at the end of the month, Universal Pictures has released nine new clips.

The only question facing Universal right now is just how much of the $626 million worldwide that "Fast Five" made, will be matched or exceeded by "Fast & Furious 6." There is really no doubt it's going to be a monster hit at this point, because no matter where you stand on this series, or whether or not you're a film snob, Vin Diesel driving the car out of the front of a jetplane is fucking awesome. Universal knows this, and that's why they're already looking ahead to next year.

Riddick
"Whatever happens no matter what they tell you. don't let 'em take these chains off me," thespian Vin Diesel intones dramatically. Yes, you guessed it, it's the new teaser trailer for "Riddick," the fourth film in the Riddick series after "Pitch Black," "The Chronicles of Riddick," the animated movie "The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury" and now, this latest picture. Frankly, it's ridic-ulous that the original films spawned a franchise, but clearly Vin Diesel has loyal fans and an audience is hungering for these sci-fi films to continue.

Guys, you know that moment in "Live Free Or Die Hard" where John McClane crashes into a fucking helicopter? Well, it looks like "Fast & Furious 6" is going to be that scene, but for a whole movie.

I feel like I’ve heard this somewhere before. In a major world capital, a grudge match between rival gangs necessitates a street-level takedown involving the kind of guys one dreads running into in dark alleys, their thermodynamically dubious cars and an inexplicably low number of pedestrian casualties. Oh yep, that’s right, that was the last five "Fast and Furious" movies.

Because we live in a world where there's going to be a straight faced "MacGuyver" movie, and because studios want branded content, not "films," your Dad's favorite TV show "Kojak," is headed to the big screen with Vin Diesel starring. Who loves ya baby!
