Sony Pictures also skipping San Diego Comic-Con this year

San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) may be the zenith of all things pop culture, but it’s going to have some noticeable absences this year. As Deadline reports, Sony Pictures will be sitting out the convention this year, joining Warner Bros, DC, and Universal.

Sony’s production studio has a number of projects in the coming months, starting with Spider-Man: Far From Home next week, and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood later in July. As far as the rest of 2019, they’ve got the long-awaited Zombieland 2: Double Tap, as well as the reboot of Charlie’s Angels. Looking into 2020, they’ve got another reboot of The Grudge, a Bloodshot adaptation with Vin Diesel, and the Blumhouse interpretation of Fantasy Island. By next summer, they’ll be launching their second Spider-Man spinoff (sans Spider-Man) with Jared Leto as the living vampire, Morbius.

Granted, with Far From Home and Once Upon A Time, Sony might be choosing to promote these big event films outside of SDCC. Which, of course, it will also have to do for the half-dozen genre pics coming out over the coming months. Last year they held panels for both Venom and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which together went on to gross more than a billion dollars at the box office.

San Diego Comic-Con will take place between July 17 and July 21 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA.

Shortly after getting the announcement that Jordana Brewster will be returning to the action-packed franchise, Universal Pictures has released the final trailer for the upcoming spin-off Hobbs & Shaw seeing the titular duo going to war with Idris Elba’s Brixton Lore, which can be viewed in the player below and get your tickets by clicking here!

After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.

But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.

Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.

Johnson will produce alongside Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia through Seven Bucks Productions.  Statham, Neal H. Moritz for Original Film, and Chris Morgan for his eponymous production company will also produce, with executive producers Kelly McCormick, Steve Chasman, Amanda Lewis, Ainsley Davies, and Ethan Smith.

In addition to Johnson and Statham, Vanessa Kirby (The Crown), Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver), Eddie Marsan and Idris Elba (The Dark Tower, Avengers: Infinity War) will be playing the film’s villain.

The film speeds into theaters August 2.

Fast and Furious 9: Jordana Brewster returns to the franchise as Mia

Vin Diesel has once again given an Instagram-ready update on the status of Fast and Furious 9. Earlier this week, he and co-star Michelle Rodriguez announced that production on latest installment in the car-centric franchise had officially taken off. Now, he’s back to inform the world that Jordana Brewster has returned to the Fast and Furious family.

Day 4!!! Grateful to make magic… with angels abound. Fast9-2020

A post shared by Vin Diesel (@vindiesel) on

Okay, we’re here, and it is day four. We are still in gratitude because this is such a beautiful place to shoot. We love filming in London, this is one of many locations,” Diesel began, before re-introducing Brewster and her character. “I’m here with Jordana — Mia — my incredible sister on and off screen, and we have someone very, very special here,” Diesel added, introducing Isaac, a child actor who’ll be playing, in his words, “baby Brian!

Brewster played Mia in five of the eight previous films and was both the sister of Dom (Diesel) and the love interest of Brian (the late Paul Walker). She was written out of the series after Walker’s death but is now being brought back into the fold. It’ll be interesting to see how (or if) the film deals with Brian’s absence, given that his character was bestowed a happy ending after Walker’s death in 2013.

Fast and Furious 9 was originally set to hit theaters on April 19 but was pushed back a year to make room for the first spin-off in the series, Hobbs & Shaw, which is now scheduled to hit theaters on August 2. As a result, Fast and Furious 9 will be getting a May 2020 release with Justin Lin returning to directing in the franchise, after helming Fast and Furious parts 3 through 6. Dan Casey will pen the screenplay from a story by Lin.

While the upcoming ninth film in the franchise won’t feature Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as he’s busy with first spinoff, Hobbs & Shawthis one will feature John Cena. So, call it an even trade.

Production on Fast and Furious 9 is currently underway, and is due out in theaters on May 22, 2020.

Anticipation has been sky high for Rob Zombie’s upcoming third entry into the Firefly family series, 3 From Hell, and shortly after announcing a full trailer is set to debut sometime next month, the writer/director took to Facebook to tease that an announcement is coming on Monday for a special advanced screening for fans (via Bloody Disgusting)!

Sheri Moon reprises the role of Baby, Bill Moseley is back in his role as Otis Driftwood and Sid Haig is returning as the iconic Captain Spaulding. Jeff Daniel Phillips will play Warden Virgil Dallas Harper. Along with the promise of bizarre cameos, the eclectic cast will include legends like Danny Trejo (Machete), Clint Howard (Solo: A Star Wars Story), Richard Brake (Batman Begins), Dee Wallace (The Howling) and Austin Stoker (Assault on Precinct 13).

Baby, Otis and Captain Spaulding went down in a blaze of glory at the end of the previous movie, ending plans for a continuing series at Lionsgate, which was eager in the mid-2000s for more horror franchises.

The Devil’s Rejects grossed $17 million on a $7 million dollar budget back in 2005, and was a tremendous success on DVD. House of 1000 Corpses grossed $12 million in 2003 after being first produced in 2000 for Universal and shelved for three years.
