If you’ve ever wanted to see a remake of The Polar Express starring Vin Diesel as one of the creepy, dead-eyed cartoon people, here’s the next best thing. The video game Fast and Furious Crossroads gives us a weirdly off-putting digital Diesel reprising his role as Dom Toretto. The game will allow players to race around and perform missions, and will also allow the lifeless computer recreation of Diesel to haunt your dreams. Watch the Fast and Furious Crossroads trailer below.Fast and Furious Crossroads Trailer
There’s a new Fast and Furious video game coming down the road. Fast and Furious Crossroads is headed to PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and will feature “an authentic storyline, and packed with heroes, gadgets, cars and non-stop cinematic-style action, Fast & Furious Crossroads will deliver pulse-pounding gameplay both in single player story mode and a soon-to-be-revealed multiplayer mode.”
The story mode brings back film actors/characters Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson reprising their roles as Dom, Letty, and Roman, respectively. Sonequa Martin-Green STAR TREK: Discovery, The Walking Dead and Asia Kate Dillon BILLIONS, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum are also part of the cast.
Players “will travel from the streets of exotic locales to the murky world of international espionage, pulling off high-speed heists and stunts as they battle to take down a new threat.”
“Fast & Furious remains one of the most beloved franchises of all time and continues to innovate in extraordinary ways,” said Jim Molinets, SVP of Production, Universal Games and Digital Platforms. “Fast & Furious Crossroads is an authentic experience that stays true to the series by amplifying the signature elements that fans love – a star-studded cast, high-stakes story, over-the-top action, deep family ties and, of course, fast cars.”
“As huge fans of the franchise, it’s an honor to be able to expand the Fast & Furious franchise into the world of video games with a brand new story, the introduction of a new crew with ties to beloved characters, and iconic and stunning set pieces,” added Andy Tudor, Chief Creative Officer, Slightly Mad Studios. “With Easter eggs throughout for fans and an intense multiplayer experience, Fast & Furious Crossroads is a thrilling collision course that puts players behind the wheel.”
Will Fast fans be drawn to this? I really don’t know. Perhaps the thrill of seeing cartoon demon Vin Diesel will be too good to pass up. Fast and Furious will launch in May 2020, which is also when the next Fast and Furious movie hits theaters....
Showtime recently renewed Shameless for an eleventh and final season. This decision came a full season after Emmy Rossum’s departure as Fiona following a long lead-up. In contrast, this season appeared to drop a substantial slip up - Lip deciding to leave the Gallagher home and move two hours away with Tami and their baby - without much notice. Well, that didn’t actually happen. Further, things got really messy and tragic with Lip in this season finale, but first, the good news.Showtime
“Gallovich” officially happened. Ian and Mickey Milkovich tied the knot after things looked hopeless on several occasions, and Mickey became a Groomzilla. The actual ceremony went off without much of a further hitch within their relationship, even though Mickey’s dad burnt down the planned venue, but that gave rise to a better shindig. Ultimately, the wedding was everything fans probably wanted it to be. Frank behaved himself for the first time in years, and then we heard about another impending wedding when Kevin finally proposed to V. That was a nice lead-in, too, with a fake-out about Kevin lying about money, but really, he was only trying to actually pull off a surprise.
As for Mickey and Ian, your guess is as good as mine on whether they’ll be happy together long-term. I hope they at least make it through the series because they both appear to have finally realized they’re damn lucky to have each other. Mickey should feel especially grateful because there’s no telling when homophobic Terry will try to kill Ian again. He did open fire on their honeymoon suite, but all was well.
All was not well, however, where Lip is concerned. After a major blowout fight with Tami outside the wedding, he ended up hitting the booze. The figurative funeral arrived for his sobriety, and Jeremy Allen White continued to crush his portrayal.Showtime
Years of hard work poured down the drain, but this move guaranteed that Lip won’t be leaving the show. In fact, he’s now further cemented as the series’ emotional center while embodying the Gallagher essence. There are facets of Lip that represent nearly every other character of the show, and watching his journey at times evolving and devolving through our very eyes throughout the series is truly heartbreaking. Things are never as real for anyone else on Shameless than they’ve been for Lip. He went to college, after all, the only Gallagher to do so, and everything still fell apart for him.
Furthermore, Lip still doesn’t know how to take care of himself. I was actually wondering at the beginning of this episode how he was keeping himself together in the lead-up to the wedding. Tammy had taken Fred and left Lip with her key and a “go f*ck yourself” note, and Lip’s first course of action was to check up on whether Ian had taken his bipolar meds before his stressful day. Fiona’s...
