Riddled with graphic scenes depicting hockey-puck torture & naked actors having sex on đứng đầu of washing machines, the controversial crime thriller "Running Scared" is a long way from your typical Paul Walker movie. Looking back on the movie now, the affable Southern California heartthrob admits that even he isn"t sure he likes the character he plays -- và that"s precisely why he took on the role.

"He"s a bad man," Walker said of low-level mobster Joey Gazelle, flashing a lethal grin. "He"s a bad man with a good heart. He does a lot of really dark, very questionable things & doesn"t appear to lớn be the nicest guy, but I think he"s all justified. He"s very loyal to his family, and if things were to lớn get heavy và you found yourself in a lot of trouble, he"d be the type of guy you"d want to have as a friend."
The fast-paced flick begins with Gazelle desperately needing some friends of his own after a weapon used in a botched mob hit goes missing. When Joey"s son (first-time actor Alex Neuberger) and his best friend Oleg (Cameron Bright, "Birth") vanish along with the gun, he sets out on a mission to lớn recover them before a Tarantino-esque stable of local cops, mobsters và street thugs introduce him to their weaponry.
For co-star Vera Farmiga, cast as Joey"s no-nonsense wife Teresa, the ultra-violent movie similarly represented a chance to get away from reality. "I dislike guns, I really do," the 32-year-old "Manchurian Candidate" actress recoiled. "Words are more powerful than loaded pistols, I think, in the end.
"Wayne creates this uneasy, hybrid world where complete menace và grit & insanity meet this whimsical, fanciful comedy," Farmiga added, praising writer/director Wayne Kramer ("The Cooler"). "It"s "Scarface" meets "Alice in Wonderland," & it has this incredible fairy-tale quality to it that takes place in this high-octane world."

The phrase "high-octane" doesn"t even begin lớn describe the flick"s most unforgettable scene: a sexy encounter atop a washing machine (see "Paul Walker"s mạng internet Sex đoạn phim Isn"t đoạn phim -- It"s A đoạn phim Game"). While one might expect such a scene from the writer/director who famously did battle with the MPAA three years ago over the number of thrusts permitted to lớn William H. Macy in "The Cooler," Walker và Farmiga insist that it was them who talked Kramer into the steamy sequence.
The scene begins with the sight of Farmiga"s exposed thong riding a few inches above her jeans. "Yeah," Walker laughed, agreeing that it"s one of the most memorable film intros in quite some time. "You think?"
"I came up with that idea," the actress said of her unavoidable undergarments. "You have to lớn
As for the lockjaw-inducing love scene that follows, Farmiga sounds lượt thích her character when she credits her love interest with putting forth all the effort. "I have a feeling that Paul Walker came up with that," she laughed.
"Yeah, I did," he giggled mischievously. "I do it all the time, so I thought, "Hey let"s bring a little reality ... It"s realism. That"s what happens. When you"re in that situation, it"s my wife in the movie, who I"m very attracted to, and I think we have a very good love life and it was appropriate. Especially considering
In stark contrast to lớn that sultry scene is a show-stopper that has Gazelle"s face being held down while an evil hockey team takes aim at it. Luckily the sun-drenched leading man -- who also stars in current box-office champ "Eight Below" -- didn"t take as much of a beating while learning lớn affect a New Jersey accent.
"I can vị Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese," Walker proudly revealed. "You pick up on these things growing up in Southern California; it"s all there in front of you. With the East Coast thing, it"s more just from watching mobster movies."
Walker added that he worked with a dialect coach while perfecting his "Scared" persona, but that it really snapped into place once he walked on phối opposite one of the all-time greats of gangster cinema. "The thing that helped me the most was having worked with Chazz Palminteri," he said of the "Analyze This" và "Usual Suspects" star, cast in "Scared" as a dirty cop. "About a year prior we did a movie called "Noel" & ... To lớn be honest, without that relationship
Now, with some help from Palminteri, the star is coming lớn theaters everywhere in a film very unlike your typical Paul Walker movie. But while he may not like his character, he sure does like the performance. "When you"re comfortable you relax too much," the star concluded. "You are your best when you"re intimidated."
THR caught up with Paul Walker và Vin Diesel in Rio for the inside story on the year"s first smash hit movie.
Wait a minute! The fifth movie in an kích hoạt franchise is supposed to lớn be less popular than the rest — but Fast Five is the year’s biggest domestic hit so far. It could double the opening weekend grosses of Rio. It scored 50 percent higher on Rottentomatoes than the first film in the series, 2001’s The Fast và the Furious, and almost three times higher than 2009’s Fast và Furious. It got a perfect A Cinema
Fast Five is expected lớn be the biggest opening in Universal history, racing right past Lost World: Jurassic Park. It’s already made way more money than the $100 million in the bank vault that Paul Walker & Vin Diesel drag at đứng top speed behind their muscle car through the streets of Rio de Janeiro, towing it like an overweight waterskier. Almost 200 cars are said to lớn have been demolished for the scene. It was worth it. If you drive slower than Walker & Diesel to lớn go see the movie, it could be sold out before you get there.
At the April 15 world premiere of Fast Five in Rio, the stars & filmmakers told The Hollywood Reporter what it was like making a historic hit, and what they’re up to next.
The Hollywood Reporter: Why return to lớn the franchise?
Paul Walker: The physical challenge. I like having lớn figure out how lớn pull things off, how khổng lồ sell it, how to lớn make it look real, but not just real, make it look better.
THR: How is this film different from the others?
Neal H. Moritz
Matthew Schulze: This one has some more heart in it & they let me create a character
Elsa Pataky: It’s a phối between action, explosions, guns, there’s a big fight. But also what is important is love, family and friendship. My character, she becomes a police office because of love.
THR: Why don’t the women in the movie wear the teeny bikinis I see on the beach?
Jordana Brewster: I have Brazilian bikinis & they cover half your butt. I was surprised that when I got khổng lồ Brazil the bikinis have gotten so small — they’ve actually progressed to a smaller size. We don’t showcase how small bikinis are. Maybe in the sixth.
Ludacris: It’s PG-13 so we had to lớn keep it, kinda, in there.
Moritz: It’s a little thing called the MPAA, those things aren’t really allowed in trailers for PG-13 movies. But we try to lớn push it as far as we can. Believe me, I would have liked lớn have shown the thong.
THR: Are there any production incentives in Rio?
Moritz: No, no rebates at all. It’s an expensive place. There was a point where the movie was getting so expensive that we almost didn’t get lớn come to lớn Rio, but we insisted và luckily the studio saw that it was the right thing khổng lồ do.
Vin Diesel: It was a dream lớn shoot here. In Fast and Furious 4, Dom & Letty are on the beach & Letty says, “Rio is beautiful this time of year.’ We didn’t believe the studio would let us shoot in Rio.
THR: This is the first Fast & Furious that will be seen in IMAX, right?
THR: Ludacris, what’s your track on the soundtrack?
Ludacris: At the over of the movie, it’s called “Furiously Dangerous.” It’s me featuring Slaughterhouse, that’s one of Eminem‘s groups.
