Gina Carano was the face of Steven Soderberg’s action thriller Haywire, but now she is going from running on the ground to driving fast cars. Thanks in part to the humble success of Haywire, the film brought many opportunities to Carano’s doorstep, among those opportunities, a chance to appear in Fast & Furious 6.
Whatever the title of the sixth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise may be doesn’t really matter. The film was obviously looking for a woman who can kick some ass and seeing as Michelle Rodriguez is out of the picture, it seems fitting that they ask Carano for her services.
TorrentFreak has released a rundown of the most pirated video games and movies of 2011.
Topping the list of games is the PC version of German developer Crytek’s hit sequel Crysis 2 with 3.92 million downloads, which is something of a surprise considering how many huge titles were released last year. It was followed by a much more expected name in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which was downloaded 3.65 million times for the PC. Battlefield 3, FIFA 12, and Portal 2 rounded out the PC list.

A new video from The Onion has been spreading around the ‘net like wildfire the past couple of days, and for good reason.
The video plays as a parody of The Today Show, called Today Now!, where the two hosts interview the screenwriter behind the latest installment in the Fast and the Furious franchise, Fast Five. The catch is that the writer, Chris Morgan, is only 5 years old, making for quite the hilarious little clip.
Morgan shares his approach to writing the script and how he wanted to see it come to life, as well as if we’ll see any sequels and just how many are planned. He even touches on his work on the Angelina Jolie flick, Wanted!
For those of you who still care about the Fast and the Furious franchise, there is a fifth movie on the way being called Fast Five, and now you can watch a trailer for the movie here and now if you so choose to.
The movie brings together stars of previous chapters of the franchise including Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris. Joining the cast is Dwayne Johnson as an intimidating cop on the heels of the elusive street racing group, who have plans of pulling off one more major job before disappearing forever.
There is a strong feeling of overkill with this franchise going into a fifth adventure, though it is impressive that the stars of the movies have generally stuck around for more…despite whatever your personal feelings for these flicks are. And judging by this new trailer, anyone who has loved and stayed faithful to the movies is in for another major adrenaline-fueled thrill ride, while the rest of you will see more of the expected explosions, chases, and high-speed shenanigans.
Head on down to the bottom of this post to check out the trailer for Fast Five for yourselves and share your thoughts on the franchise below.
