Suicide Squad Trailer Mash-Up

Even though Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 just hit theaters over a month ago, James Gunn is already hard at work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Just recently, the director’s brother Sean Gunn said that development isn’t moving as quickly as it otherwise would since part of what happens in the sequel depends on what the Guardians deal with in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.

But there is one thing that James Gunn is already considering and it would require him to break part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon he established in the first movie. Get the lowdown on this Guardians of the Galaxy 3 development below. Read More »

Rocket and Baby Groot sf

Guardians of the Galaxy was a pretty obscure comic before Marvel Studios introduced us to its heroes on the big screen, so for many of us, the first time we saw Rocket Raccoon and his tree-like friend Groot was in the movie as a pair of intergalactic bounty hunters. How did these versions of the characters meet? What kind of bounties did they score together before hooking up with Quill, Gamora, and Drax?

These questions – and plenty more – could be answered in a spin-off film, and Vin Diesel, who provides the voice of Groot, is hyping one yet again. But does that mean it’ll actually happen? Read more about a potential Rocket and Groot spin-off below.

groot final form

Baby Groot may be the star of the show in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but he won’t be a baby forever. And wait ’til you see him at his peak, Vin Diesel — forever his own best hype man — says.

According to Diesel, you haven’t seen nothing yet of Groot. In fact, the giant, hulking Groot we met in the first Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t even the final form of Groot. But we may see a “full-fledged” Groot soon.

Fast and Furious - Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson Feud

Late last summer, there was word that a feud had sparked between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel on the set of The Fate of the Furious. Supposedly, Johnson didn’t think that Diesel was conducting himself professionally, frequently delaying production simply because he was still relaxing in his trailer.

At the same time, there was another rumor saying that the feud was nothing more that a publicity stunt that would come to a head at Wrestlemania 33. However, that clearly didn’t come to fruition, and recent word of Vin Diesel axing a Fate of the Furious credits scene with Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham only lent further credence to the existence of the feud.

Thankfully, it sounds like Johnson and Diesel have ended their feud so that they can both return for Fast and Furious 9 and not have to worry about any bad blood still brewing between them. Find out more about the resolution of the Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson feud below. Read More »

Fate of the Furious Credits Scene

If you head out to see The Fate of the Furious this weekend, there won’t be a credits scene teasing the next installment of the high-speed franchise. However, there were plans in place for for a credits scene that would have featured Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) as a way of hinting that a spin-off might be coming featuring the adversaries forced to be allies. So what happened to it?

Reportedly, Vin Diesel had the credits scene pulled after it was shot without his knowledge. But there’s another side of the story that indicates there wasn’t really a confrontation reason behind The Fate of the Furious credits scene being axed. Find out more below, but beware of some minor spoilers for the sequel. Read More »

Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift origin

Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift is maybe the purest Fast and Furious movie. For starters, there’s a real passion for driving in Justin Lin‘s sequel; it’s not about saving the world. It’s still a crime story, but a crime story with a whole lot of impassioned drifting – all of which Vin Diesel was originally meant to perform.

Screenwriter Chris Morgan has recently explained the Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift origin story and it’s a fascinating one. This is the movie that placed this series on the right track.

The Fate of the Furious box-office

The Fate of the Furious is a disappointing setback for the series, but as you all probably know, it’s still on its way to another massive opening weekend at the box-office. While box-office analysts don’t see it surpassing Furious 7‘s opening in the United States, director F. Gary Gray‘s sequel is expected to land somewhere between $110 million to $125 million. The sequel may double that number worldwide, although some speculate it’ll make even more than $280 million this weekend.

Let’s delve into the Fate of the Furious box-office tracking.

The Fate of the Furious

Even though blockbuster season doesn’t technically kick off until May with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Universal is shifting things into gear a little early with the release of The Fate of the Furious this weekend. It’s the eighth installment of the franchise that began all the way back in 2001, and it’s still unbelievable to me that the franchise has come this far. However, it will be up to audiences to determine whether that’s still a good thing or not.

As for The Fate of the Furious reviews, they are torn as to whether this is one of the best films in the reinvigorated franchise so far, or one of the worst. Reviews go from one extreme to the other, and some of the naysayers are those who have enjoyed the hell out of the recent run of sequels in the film series. We highlighted some brief Twitter reactions from CinemaCon a little while back, but the full reviews give us a more complete picture of the sequel. Read More »

Fate of the Furious Featurette

Director F. Gary Gray knows how to shoot a good car chase. When he took on The Italian Job remake, the bar was set high for the third act mini cooper chase. In the end, he directed a chase that didn’t completely pale in comparison to the original film. No small feat. With the eight addition to the Fast and Furious franchise, he’s again facing high expectations.

Based on a new The Fate of the Furious featurette, which teases the set piece in New York City, it doesn’t look like Gray’s action is, at the very least, going to lack scope.
