The Biggest Winners of Summer 2013 Movie Season, by Hollywood Prospectus Blog, Grantland
Jared Sperli stashed this in movies
The Fast & Furious FranchiseWe might never get tired of these movies. They have just the perfect mix of "that's dumb," "that's impossible," and "that's cool." This seems like a summer franchise you'd want your agent to muscle you in on: no costumes, no Comic-Con nuts to disappoint, none of the blame if it bombs (IT WON'T BOMB). And now Jason Statham and Tony Jaa have joined the action. The other day my boss argued that Nicolas Cage needs to be in one of these movies. I absolutely agree. That's what a tarnished star like Cage needs: to be weird in a movie that his weirdness can't capsize.
