Jason Statham News

Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy comedy “Spy” will open the 41st annual Seattle International Film Festival, organizers announced Wednesday.

Paul Walker in "Furious 7"
First things first: Paul Walker would be proud of this. It’s an action franchise that will please its huge and ever-growing fanbase. He gets to go two rounds with Thai martial arts star Tony Jaa and gets the last laugh. Not a bad way to go. Overall, Walker’s scenes are quite seamless.

Spy Trailer: Jason Statham is the Secret Weapon Another Spy trailer is here, and given that it’s probably going to play ahead of Furious 7 this weekend there’s an appropriate Jason Statham bit right at its center. “I once drove a car off a freeway on top of a train while I was on fire,” he says, seemingly describing a stunt from the Fast and the Furious franchise that he’s now a part of. He’s not in in too much of the latest Spy trailer, though, and that’s either a good thing or a bad thing. I had assumed his role was just slightly above a cameo after seeing him in the first spot.

The Giver
This weekend brings an interesting mix of new releases to theaters—we have some tongue-in-cheek mindless action, some young-adult dystopian literature-turned-film, and a risqué buddy cop comedy (sort of).
