After the tragic death of star Paul Walker, the fate of Fast and Furious 7 was very much in doubt. Everyone knew Walker would want nothing more than the film to be finished, and the cast and crew pulled together to get the movie done. New cast members were added and a later release date was set. Finally, Fast and Furious 7 finished filming this week. It’s the same week, coincidentally, that the film was originally going to be released in theaters.
To mark the occasion, a note was put on the Fast and Furious Facebook page thanking fans for their kinds words and prayers. It’s a really nice tribute to Walker and the rest of the group. Read it below. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy opens in just six weeks, so this is the point where Marvel really has to start the full-court press. The first two trailers, a couple of TV commercials, and those character videos have all started to introduce the strange team of characters. Now a new Guardians of the Galaxy international trailer gives some more detail to that crew: a thief, two thugs, a murderer, and a maniac, as Glenn Close says in this new footage.
(Chris Pratt‘s character ran down the same roster, with one slight difference, in the last trailer. I’ll let you figure out the alteration here.)
This trailer also contains some new Rocket footage, and a good bit of input from Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel). Read More »

The passing of Paul Walker was a tragedy felt by many, but no one felt it more keenly than his family. Walker left behind a daughter, siblings and many others who loved him more than any fan ever could. Last week, news broke that two of Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody Walker, would be given a rare opportunity to pay tribute to their brother by joining the cast of Fast and Furious 7 as stand-ins for Paul. Now, co-star Vin Diesel posted a photo of Paul’s brothers from the set, and it’s pretty obvious this tribute is going to work. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t really look like anything that’s come before it in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s a good thing for those of us eager to see Marvel branch out, but a potential WTF for those who take comfort in Marvel’s reliability and consistency.
So a new Guardians of the Galaxy featurette tries to encourage those in the latter camp to join the former. Producer Kevin Feige and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper promise the film will “blow you away with how unique it is,” while still reassuring viewers that it’s part of the same old MCU. Watch it after the jump.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens this weekend, and then all eyes turn to the skies. That’s where James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy takes place: in deep, deep space. There, an Earth-born transplant named Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) will be arrested and meet four other crazy creatures to form a formidable team to fight Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace). Those allies are Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel). And if that plot sounds a little thin, that’s because the film doesn’t open until August 1 and Marvel has been pretty tight lipped about it. We’ll surely learn more soon, though, as it becomes the primary focus in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A few weeks back, we saw the teaser poster for Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, the character elements from that poster have been uploaded as large, individual images. Each offers a great opportunity to check out the detailed designs of each of the main characters. Check out some Guardians of the Galaxy photos below. Read More »
