It’s been almost two years since Paul Walker died in a car accident and while the Fast and the Furious franchise has moved on, Walker’s teenage daughter still has some fight left over the incident. Meadow Rain Walker, Walker’s daughter, is suing Porsche over the luxury sports car not including an electronic stability system that could have prevented the crash as well as using weak building materials that led to the seatbelt and and fuel lines breaking when the car crashed.
While lawsuits like this can typically be a tactic to negotiate settlements and insurance policies, it’s also true that Porsche’s parent company, Volkswagen, has some current problems over their cars breaking the rules. While those emission issues are much larger it could play into a narrative that makes this lawsuit go the distance. Just like the entire Fast and the Furious franchise, we’ll just have to wait and see.
Lionsgate just dropped the first trailer for Vin Diesel’s new film The Last Witch Hunter. It’s nice to see what Alfred has been up to now that Batman is retired in Italy, but otherwise this looks like the worst parts of I, Frankenstein and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters mixed up with some Underworld elements (but not from the first Underworld movie that was okay–all the other ones that sucked). When are filmmakers going to realize that we don’t want monster movies based on the good guys? If you make a movie about witches–make it ABOUT WITCHES and not someone hunting them. Sigh.
See the full trailer for yourself after the break. The Last Witch Hunter opens to horrible reviews on October 23, 2015. Not even Paul Walker plans on seeing it.
