Who could forget The Hunt for Red October with Alec Baldwin as Jack Ryan, or Harrison Ford in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger as the same character? Or Ben Affleck in….well….wait.

Let’s see if he can get this series rolling again. Please! At least so I can forget the last one with the future Batman! Wow!

“Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas did not have alcohol or drugs in their systems on Nov. 30 when the two men died, but the red Porsche they were in was traveling at an “unsafe speed,” according to a Los Angeles County coroner’s report released Friday.

According to the investigator’s findings, the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT was traveling at “approximately 100+ mph” before the crash occurred, and was “almost split in half” by the impact.

The report says that Rodas, the driver, lost control “for unknown reasons” and the car then struck a curb, then a tree and a concrete lamppost and spun around, then hit another tree and burst into flames.

Walker, 40, and Rodas, 38, had taken the sports car out for a short ride in Santa Clarita, Calif., where Walker was attending a charity event.

It was previously announced that the men died of traumatic injuries sustained in the crash. Debris and other roadway conditions were ruled out as a cause of the crash.

Will These 7 Sequels Dominate the Box Office in 2014?

Thanks to massive late-year pushes from sequels including Lionsgate‘s (NYSE: LGF  The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Time Warner‘s (NYSE: TWX  The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, domestic movie-goers have spent more than $10.7 billion at the box office so far in 2013.

That’s nearly a full percentage point ahead of the $10.61 billion at this point in 2012, which means 2013 could very well exceed last year’s fresh $10.8 billion high mark.

But several other big-budget sequels played a large part in running up the score this year, including the likes of Disney (NYSE: DIS  ) Marvel’s Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World,Disney Pixar’s Monster’s University, and both Despicable Me 2 and Fast & Furious 6 fromComcast Universal.

Naturally, the world’s most powerful studios are hard at work bringing a new round of sequels your way next year. In order of appearance, here are the seven I think will command the most attention in 2014:

1. 300: Rise of an Empire

On March 7, Time Warner hopes to win big with another gory, quasi-historical action flick in 300: Rise of an Empire.

And if the runaway success of its 2007 predecessor is any indication, this latest graphic-novel-turned-movie-blockbuster should do just fine. Remember, despite limiting its audience with an unsurprising “R” rating, 300 still managed to earn an impressive $456 million worldwide on a relatively modest $65 million production budget.

Time Warner hasn’t released official budget numbers this time around for Rise of an Empire. But given the sheer anticipation created by the massive looming battle at the end of the first filmit seems safe to bet they upped the ante in their efforts to pick up where 300 left off.

2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Next, Disney looks to continue its Marvel-driven box office domination with the April 4 launch ofCaptain America: The Winter Soldier.

At first glance, it’s tempting to think this sequel may not perform all that well when you remember Captain America: The First Avenger took home “just” $370.6 million globally in 2011. That’s the second-lowest total of any film in the current Disney-Marvel cinematic universe, ahead of only the $263.4 million earned by 2008’s The Incredible Hulk — which was produced before Disney acquired Marvel in 2009, by the way — and less than one quarter of the $1.52 billion achieved by Marvel’s The Avengers last year.

But consider this: Thanks largely to its Avengers boost, Thor: The Dark World has already earned more than $628 million worldwide after just seven weekends in theaters, compared to $449.3 million over 16 weekends for the first Thor in 2011. If The Winter Soldier follows a similar upward trajectory a few months from now, it should easily be able to eclipse the $550 million mark when all is said and done.

3. The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Speaking of potential billion-dollar comic book-based movies, you can be sure Sony (NYSE:SNE  ) Pictures wants to steal the show with its May 2 debut of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

And why not? Its risky reboot in The Amazing Spider-Man last year grabbed an impressive $752.2 million after 15 weekends on the big screen, nearly two-thirds of which came from foreign audiences. This time, the second installment should not only benefit from the ever-growing star power of leading lady Emma Stone, but also from having Jamie Foxx portraying Spidey’s next supervillain antagonist, Electro.

All things considered, that’s why I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see the The Amazing Spider-Man 2 near the top of 2014’s highest-grossing films.

What’s the most you ever lost on a coin toss?

From the film “No Country For Old Men”, comes Javier Bardem as the ruthless Anton Chigurh. The Coen brothers sought to cast someone “who could have come from Mars” to avoid a sense of identification. Empire.com ranked him #46 in their list of the 100 Greatest Movie Characters Of All Time, praising the look on his face when he strangles a cop with his own handcuffs. When American novelist Cormac McCarthy wants to throw a dark character at you, it’s a safe assumption that you’re not going to be able to get them out of your head for a good, long while – if ever. With the kind of unholy relentlessness usually reserved for horror icons, the hired killer has an almost supernatural ability to track his prey, and is rather short in the mercy department, preferring to leave the tough decisions to a coin toss. And that bowl cut is utterly terrifying.

The Legend Continues!

The Channel 4 News team is back and just as professional….now on GNN!!!  Just saw this flick and it is pretty solid.  9 years later and the gang still has it, led by the legendary anchor himself, Ron Burgundy!  There are plenty of return characters and even some new ones.  Plenty of laughs all around.  A mondo Will Ferrell comedy just in time for the New Year.  It may not be German pornography, but Dorothy Mantooth would approve!   “Anchorman 2 – The Legend Continues”, CAN YOU DIG IT!

Need for Speed the movie?

Hmmm…now that The Fast and the Furious franchise may be coming to an end, there appears to be something on the horizon. Not sure if it will do but the trailer for Need For Speed looks possible. Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, muscle car mechanic and street racer Tobey (Aaron Paul) gets out of prison determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction. Wait, is that “Jesse Pinkman?”
