When last we checked in with gearhead guru Billy Hammon, he showed off the amazing collection of big screen bikes that have made Picture Car Warehouse their final resting place. Now, Hammon has invited us back to check out all of the uniquely awesome movie cars that Picture Car Warehouse has designed and custom fabricated for several recent movies, including Justin Timberlake's retro-futuristic car from In Time and the "Black Beauty" that Seth Rogen used in his war on crime in The Green Hornet.

Today's Challenge: Can you link Faster and The Cable Guy, both out on Blu-ray today for the first time?
Our first Facebook movie game, ClusterFlick, plays off that old "six degrees of separation" theory — you know, the one that has a certain Kevin at the center of the Hollywood universe. It's easy to play, but not so easy to win. The goal is to use the major cast of movies to get from Point A to Point B in the smallest number of moves.

With Faster opening this week, it marks the second movie Billy Bob Thornton has appeared in over the past two years. Thornton explained to Reuters that his band has taken up most of his time.
Thornton's back at screenwriting too >> Posted 11.27.10 by Ryan
I did spend about two years mostly touring with the band, recording a lot of records. The last movie was [2008's] Eagle Eye, and then we decided to hit the road. Then I did Faster. With the economy, they aren't making as many movies, so when you see a good one you got to grab it, and Faster was that. The great thing about every character in [it], pretty much, there's sort of an ambiguity to all of them, and I always like characters like that. I don't know that there are any good guys or bad buys, everybody in it's got a pretty heavy past.
Dwayne Johnson has dropped "The Rock," along with the comedy and family fare, to go hard-core vigilante in Faster. A good career move? A good movie?

"Since it doesn't rely on the cliches that riddle the typical action movie, Faster feels fresher. It's closer to a drama with a determined look and moral compass than a bunch of bullet ballets or car chases strung together."— Bill Gibron, filmcritic.com
"...too bad an unnecessary major character and some silly last-act twists and turns almost ruin the fun."— Peter Paras, E!
"...a pure thriller, all blood, no frills, in which a lot of people get shot, mostly in the head."— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"...an overpacked suitcase disguised as a movie..."— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"...a turgid, ultraviolent parable of revenge and forgiveness..."— Stephen Holden, New York Times
After appearing in family movies like Planet 51 and Tooth Fairy, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is jumping back into action (movies). With Fast Five opening next year, Johnson's first foray into action is Faster, which sees him as a man released from prison and seeking revenge on the men that killed his brother. The script, written by screenwriting brothers Joe and Tony Gayton, was one that Johnson hand-picked for his action movie renaissance.
"We heard that he didn't just like the script, but that he loved it," Tony told ComingSoon. "He got it... he got the 70's sort of vibe. Once we heard his passion for it, we were just thrilled. I think some actors would be nervous playing a part like this because there's not a lot of dialogue. He never asked for more dialogue. The studio asked for it a few times, but Dwayne never asked. I think that's a guy who feels comfortable with his screen presence. I don't think he minded that — in fact, I think he embraced it." Watch the trailer >> Posted 10.12.10 by Ryan
CBS Films, the movie division of the TV network, hasn't had the best record so far, releasing the critically-pounded, mega-bomb Extraordinary Measures in January, and following it with the similarly disliked romantic comedy The Back-Up Plan, which foundmodest success at the box office.

The latest, red band trailer shows that CBS may have pulled it off. read the synopsis and watch the trailer >> Posted 10.07.10 by Ryan

- It's fall (aka queue up the Oscar movies), so not surprisingly there are more dramas headed into theaters than this past summer. Also on the upswing are 3-D movies — in fact, nearly 1/3 of the fall titles boost the extra dimension, with 100 percent of the Kids/Family movies playing in 3-D.
By the numbers, here's how the season breaks down: fans of action/adventure (7), horror (6), drama (6), and comedy (5) are in luck, with the offerings fewer and farther between for kids (4) and mystery/thriller fans (3). Get details on all of them, including who stars, and check out the trailers and photo galleries.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson recently joined the production of Fast Five a.k.a. The Fast and the Furious 5, but before that he will be seen in the upcoming Faster, which despite it's title, use of fast cars, and over-the-top action sequences, has no relation to the Fast and Furious franchise.
As the teaser trailer depicts, Faster is a revenge story that sees Johnson as an ex-cop trying to avenge his brother's death, and Billy Bob Thornton as a guy who drives a car wearing a really bad toupee. George Tillman Jr. (Notorious) directs the movie, which is being released by CBS Films, makers of mega-bomb Extraordinary Measures (best to leave that off the posters).
