Most of the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy had publicly spoken out against the company following Gunn’s firing from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 last year, but none spoke more loudly than Bautista, who had threatened to leave the franchise altogether. But now with Gunn happily back in the employ of Marvel and Disney, Bautista has repaired his relations with the House of Mouse.

The summer is already filled with plenty of action from some of the biggest blockbusters of the year. Avengers: Endgame and John Wick: Chapter 3 kicked all sorts of ass, and Godzilla: King of Monsters took a big bite out of the competition. The X-Men just came back together for their final mission in Dark Phoenix, and soon Men in Black International will fight the scum of the universe across the globe. But the team-up that you might want to keep an eye on is a little bit further out.
Stuber finds Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) as a timid Uber driver who suddenly finds himself as the chauffeur to a dangerous cop played by Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy). Needless to say, their pairing makes for quite an odd couple, and the two end up embarking on a bullet-riddled adventure that takes them through the seedy underbelly of crime. Watch the red band Stuber trailer to get a taste. Read More »
While most of this summer’s action brings us superheroes, giant monsters, galaxy-saving secret agents, living toys, and remakes of animated classics, 20th Century Fox is taking us for an Uber ride from hell.
Stuber is a new action comedy that follows Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) as an Uber driver named Stu (that’s why it’s called Stuber!), who suddenly finds himself driving around an aggressive, gruff and tough cop (Dave Bautista) as he’s in pursuit of some pretty formidable criminals. It has a real throwback vibe to it, like something akin to Midnight Run or Beverly Hills Cop. Watch the new international Stuber trailer below to see what we’re dealing with. Read More »
Somehow, when we weren’t looking, Escape Plan became a franchise. The original film teamed up action movie legends Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger for the very first time. It was fine! That was followed by a Schwarzenegger-less sequel,Escape Plan 2: Hades. Now, here comes Escape Plan: The Extractors. Stallone is back once again without Schwarzenegger, but Dave Bautista is there, so that’s something. Watch the Escape Plan: The Extractors trailer below.

There’s a lot of sandy ground to cover with Dune, and one movie might not cut it. Director Denis Villeneuve‘s star-studded Dune adaptation is currently filming, but will there be more to come? Villeneuve has hinted in the past that he’d like to make more than one film to bring Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic to life, and as of now, that seems to be the plan. In a new interview, Legendary CEO Joshua Grode confirms that at least one Dune sequel is being planned – although that could change.

Zack Snyder is returning to zombie movies with the Netflix film Army of the Dead, set to star Dave Bautista. The story focuses on a heist in Las Vegas in the midst of a zombie outbreak – sort of like Ocean’s 11, with the walking dead. New info on the Army of the Dead characters has crawled its way online, offering a little more insight into what Snyder has in store with his next film.

Dave Bautista has quickly become a dependable character actor worth paying attention to. Unlike other wrestlers-turned-actors, Bautista tends to shy away from the flashy leading parts for more interesting, quirky roles. But he’s not above doing the goofy action movie now and again. Case in point: Bautista will star in Killer’s Game, which sounds like John Wick meets Crank. Bautista will play a hitman who learns he has a terminal illness, and decides to put a contract out on his own life. But there’s a catch.
