The Fate Of The Furious

Yeah, we're up to number eight of these Fast and Furious films now. By this stage the Saw franchise has gone 3D, Police Academy has given up and Jason Voorhees has decided to take on Manhattan. Well, the Fast crew are going to take on New York and their own leader as -- if you haven't watched any promotional material -- Dom, the leader, family man, freshly married and seemingly semi-retired from his old lifestyle is going bad. Dominic Toretto has gone rogue

xXx: Return of Xander Cage

For the second time Vin Diesel has returned to a franchise he skipped out on originally. Ice Cube may have stepped in for the second xXx film, and they may have explained that Xander died in that film... but forget about it! It was, of course, a faked death and Xander has been globe trotting around the world without anyone being able to find him. Until the plot of this film requires Toni Collette's Jane Marke to find him, at which point they find him very quickly to bring him out of retirement. The xXx program is again in action.
