I'm not really convinced that F7 is going to be the franchise peak. While there's probably some effect from Walker's death, the demographic breakdown really indicates that this is a franchise that's filling a niche that nothing else is.

 

FF has already been defying expectations for 4 straight films. We're seeing each films set a new peak, and an audience that keys in more and more. There's going to be a lot of loyalty for this film when it comes out, simply because it doesn't really have any product competition.

 

Since we don't have any real film series to compare it to, I'm looking at TV and considering what Empire just did by increasing viewership with every single episode. An underserved audience will key into it until the rest of the industry catches up and serves them an alternative.

I agree I said earlier look at TDKR.

Snipes

Neeson

Connery

Weaver

Eastwood

 

Connery is retired and Eastwood rarely stars in films that aren't directed by himself, I think Neeson as Shaw Snr would be cool or maybe Helen Mirren as Mrs Shaw.

Stars have come out of retirement before. I will take rarely.

the "from paul" thing is just a way to guilt the people who are all "hmm, I don't want another one w/out paul" into being ok with this, right?

It’s weird, I’d say Vin is totally exploiting the sympathy factor except that Vin legit seems like the sweetest guy.

 

Oh well, I’ll see F8.

Still, we're all gonna wonder what could have been.

Hopefully the return of Eva Mendes means Cole Hauser will get out of prison

 

His character was secretly Luke Evans' cousin

Liam Nesson or GTFO!

 

If they're planning to trilogize from 7, save Neeson for 9. Let him be the Thanos to Statham's Loki.

Yeah I really enjoyed Hauser's performance as the villain. He did a better job than Statham too. I dont see them bringing him back now though.
