Welp, the Fast X news starts coming and it don’t stop coming. This week we’ve got two more big updates for the Fast and Furious franchise. We promise we’ll talk about something else soon, but in the meantime, there’s just so much going on surrounding the penultimate film of this time honored, historic film franchise. Not mentioned in this episode because it was announced literally the next day: The 10th movie is called Fast X. We didn’t know that when we filmed, so be prepared to hear us say Fast10 way too much. Apologies in advanced. We’ve got all your FFCU news, right here on Zero Credit(s).
In 2017, a studio had a vision of continuing a franchise they had started in 2014 with CGI monsters the size of buildings doing monster stuff while some people ran around and yelled about there being monsters. But with Godzilla set in the current day, how could they reveal that monsters exist for a second time? The answer: set it in the past and make it a secret that monsters exist while doing the whole monsters exist plot again. Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman, John C Reilly, Toby Kebbell, Marc Evan Jackson, and more are all here to be separated in the first few minutes of arriving on Skull Island so that we have different parties with different goals to follow and the tensions are high. Is this very much influenced by Vietnam War movies flick a treat for the senses, or is it whatever the opposite of that would be? It’s time we ended something, once and for all – the movie isn’t too quotable so this paraphrase will have to do – right now, on Zero Credit(s).
