Vin Diesel went on his Facebook and revealed this brand new image from Fast and Furious 6, featuring himself and the believed to be dead Michelle Rodriguez. He also said Universal will release the first footage during the Super Bowl on February 3. Thanks to Collider for the heads up.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was at an Ain’t It Cool News screening of The Last Stand and spoke about how Universal finally came to him and committed to making a new Conan movie, The Legend of Conan. You can read more about it at that link or just watch the man himself in this here video.
Speaking to Crave Online, J.J. Abrams spoke at length about being excited for fans to see Star Trek Into Darkness. And, of course, if that film is a hit come May, fans will start asking the director about a third film and Abrams says while there are ideas, no one has really started to figure anything out yet:
I’m sure that the studio would love that to be a possibility but it’s up to the audience to decide if there needs to be one…There are things we’ve talked about but there’s no script or anything, it’s just ideas.
The new Muppet movie, tentatively called The Muppets…Again, just picked up a 2014 release date and star Ricky Gervais confirmed on Twitter that filming begins this week:
Still can't believe I start filming a lead role in The Muppet Movie next week. I have loved those little guys for over 30 years. Buzzing.
