Kurt-Russell-in-Fast-7-650x433

It's almost as if the creators of "Fast and Furious 7" know exactly how excited we are for the next installment, because they've been gracious enough to post nearly one picture a day from the set. Yesterday, Ludacris gave us a look at the cars that will tear up the asphalt in next year's sequel, but cars aren't the only reason we're looking forward to this one.

There's also a cast that out does every other installment in a series that's known for its crazy ensembles, but perhaps the most exciting addition to the team is a legend of the action movie genre.

Stuntman Mike himself, Kurt Russell, had been rumored to join the cast, and now the latest photo from set confirms as much. He appears in what looks like an auto repair shop with Paul Walker and Vin Diesel. It may be worth noting that all three men are wearing suits, which doesn't seem particularly in-character with the rest of the series. Maybe they're going to a fancy dinner or something.

Regardless, this is an amazing addition to the series, which continues when "Fast and Furious 7" hits theaters on July 11, 2014.

Dumb and Dumber

We can finally rest assured that Harry and Lloyd will reunite for "Dumb and Dumber To." It was "stop and go" for a while there, but Jim Carrey and recent Emmy-winner Jeff Daniels are set to return for the sequel. And production looks to have kicked off already.

Both Carrey and Daniels tweeted out photos of themselves in full costume today, and the world's fans of the 90s comedy collectively let out a cry of joy and relief.

Cinderella

Disney just sent out an announcement for the start of production on "Cinderella," the studio's next play at turning one of their classic animated movies into a modernized live-action blockbuster.

This time, they're retelling the rag-to-riches story that we all know. Kenneth Branaugh will be directing the fairytale as a follow-up to his last movie — also with Disneey — "Thor." He will lead an all-star cast that is headed up by "Downton Abbey's" Lily James and "Game of Thrones" star Richard Madden as the future princess and current prince.

"It is impossible to think of Cinderella without thinking of Disney and the timeless images we've all grown up watching. And those classic moments are irresistible to a filmmaker," Branaugh said in the announcement. "With Lily James we have found our perfect Cinderella. She combines knockout beauty with intelligence, wit, fun and physical grace. Her Prince is being played by Richard Madden, a young actor with incredible power and charisma. He is funny, smart and sexy and a great match for Cinderella."

Brad Pitt Fury

It wasn't that long ago that Brad Pitt was carving swastikas into the foreheads of Nazis as Aldo the Apache in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," but he's already going back to World War II and that prospect has us excited for a few different reasons.

"Fury" is the next film from David Ayer, who recently delivered the better-than-expected "End of Watch," and this time he's following a team of men as they ride in a different vehicle of justice, a tank. You can see the first picture from the production and the entire cast in the photo above.

The cast, including Pitt, is stacked from top to bottom and includes Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Peña, and Jon Bernthal from "The Walking Dead."

That Awkward Moment

It is a truth universally acknowledged that any young actor on the verge of breaking out is in want of a lead role in a romantic comedy. That's just movie star logic, but there's something interesting about the movie "That Awkward Moment." It's got three different young stars on the cusp of the big time.

Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller have all had strong years recently, and now the three of them are teaming up for the new relationship comedy that looks at the point in a relationship when it's time to decide if the coupling can last.

The first photo from the film, which was just retitled from "Are We Officially Dating," has now debuted, giving us a look at the stars living it up as single (for now) dudes in New York City.

Vin Diesel

Here we were getting ridiculously excited for "Fast and Furious 7" thanks to some serious casting news, but things are already underway on the set. Vin Diesel, who has taken to Facebook unlike any other celebrity, posted a picture from the set to his page that is already getting us pumped for our next dosage of insane action.

Diesel posted a picture with Paul Walker from the set with the caption, "The unknown road ahead... P.s. One from the set."

The road might be unknown, but it's certainly an exciting one. As teased after the credits of "Fast and Furious 6," Jason Statham is joining the cast as a man looking for revenge for his brother's death. Then there's Kurt Russell, who is also in talks to, along with Tony Jaa and Djimon Hounsou. These are all stellar editions to what was already a solid ensemble cast.

"Fast and Furious 7" is scheduled to hit theaters on July 11, 2014.

Need for Speed

Next year already has a ton of movies that we're looking forward to, but "Need for Speed" holds a special spot on our most-anticipated list for a number of reasons. The first has to be Aaron Paul, making his jump to big-budget films soon after the ending of "Breaking Bad." We're also always hoping for a video game-based movie that isn't horrible.

And what we've seen so far from "Need for Speed" is shaping up nicely. While we can't tell too much from these new images (via EW), they do remind us that there is a very solid cast.

"Need for Speed" is an adaptation of the popular racing game, and it stars Paul, "50 Shades of Grey" lead Dakota Johnson, Dominic Cooper, Kid Cudi, and Michael Keaton. You can see some of these people in the two new images from EW below!

FOXCATCHER

"Foxcatcher," a true-life story starring Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum, has only just begun to come into view, after getting set with Sony Classic Pictures and nailing down its December 20 release date, and now there are two more pictures featuring a nearly unrecognizable cast.

Both Carell and Ruffalo are ugging it up for "Foxcatcher," which is already earning some early Oscar buzz thanks to its director, Bennett Miller, who previously made "Capote" and "Moneyball." The former "Office" funny man has had the most work done. As you can see in the new photos, Carell is wearing a prosthetic nose.

Daniel Radcliffe

Thanks to roles in movies like "The Lady in Black" and "Kill Your Darlings," Daniel Radcliffe has found himself with a blossoming film career outside the world of Harry Potter. Now, he's venturing in the world of romantic comedies with "The F Word," which is headed to the Toronto International Film Festival.

In the first still from the film, Radcliffe sits across from this love interest in the movie, played by "Rudy Sparks" breakout Zoe Kazan. As the official TIFF description explains, Radcliffe's character finds himself in a all-to-common scenario.

The F Word Michael Dowse, Canada/Ireland World Premiere When Wallace meets Chantry, it could be love at first sight… except she lives with her long-term boyfriend. And so Wallace, acting with both best intentions — and maybe a little denial — discovers the dirtiest word in romance: friends. Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver and TIFF Rising Star Megan Park.
