In 2001, The Fast and the Furious skidded into cinemas and gunned every adrenaline-fueled, testosterone-steeped, speed-freak fantasy within us. Set against a back drop of underground racing, it pushed the car beyond just what it could do and showed us exactly what it could be. More than just modes of transports, they became invaluable tools, weapons of mass destruction, growling, grinding extensions of an owner’s soul and the ultimate path to freedom. And yet, even with two subsequent sequels, this franchise seemed doomed to be a sad one hit wonder. Luckily for gear heads everywhere, it only took 8 years till the Fast & Furious brought back all of the original cast in an effort to reboot the story and kick-off an unprecedented rejuvenation which has already given us three brand new installments and no plan on stopping.
Heeey look it’s Jordana Brewster! What’s she been up to lately? Sod all? What a shock!
While critically condemned, the Resident Evil franchise has nevertheless achieved considerable commercial success and enjoyed a wide audience. That’s all likely to change after Resident Evil: Retribution, a film so laughably incapable, so shamelessly derivative and so woefully unengaging that it’ll likely succeed where its zombie antagonists have failed… in mortally wounding Milla Jovovich’s Alice.
Just when we thought the Expendables series couldn’t get any better, word has reached us that producer Adi Shankar has plans to make an all-female version of action ensemble. Director of the sequel, Simon West has stated that he is fully on board with the idea (WHO WOULDN’T BE?) and would like to see a line-up involving the likes of Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Milla Jovovich, Helen Mirren and Jamie Lee Curtis. We can see the appeal of those casting choices but here at BFF (which otherwise stands for Best For Females) we’ve dreamed up a list with a little more bite. So here it is chaps and chapettes: the top ten ovarylicious casting choices for an all-female Expendables. WARNING: Due to her recent involvement in the unforgivable Red Lights, Sigourney Weaver has been banned from this list.
