The Vin Diesel action film Bloodshot was one of the last big movies to debut in North American theaters before the coronavirus pandemic brought the entertainment industry to a standstill one thousand years ago. (That’s how long it’s been, right? Feels about that long.) But now, eight months after the first film was quickly shifted to VOD, the company behind it is moving forward with a sequel.
Yep, a new report says that Bloodshot 2 is officially in the works, and ol’ Vinny D is coming back for more. Read More »
Back in February this year, when we couldn’t even comprehend that our entire year was going to be ruined, Vin Diesel talked about the likelihood of ending the Fast and Furious franchise with Fast 10. However, rather than being one final movie, the franchise star and producer floated the idea of creating a two-part finale, not unlike the end of franchises like Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and Twilight. Now that plan has been confirmed by Universal Pictures, and Justin Lin will be at the helm of both of the final installments of the multi-billion dollar franchise. Read More »
Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, you won’t get to see Dominic Toretto and his high-speed crew back on the big screen and Fast and Furious 9 until next year. But thankfully, Netflix has a consolation prize in the form of new adventures with Dom’s cousin, Tony Torretto, in the second season of the animated series Fast and Furious: Spy Racers. Unfortunately, it does not feature Vin Diesel‘s recently released single. What’s that? You haven’t heard that Vin Diesel was making music? Prepare yourself. Read More »
This year has already been weird for a number of reasons.

That actor is Dwayne Johnson, and thanks to a hefty paycheck from Netflix for the upcoming original movie Red Notice, not to mention his ongoing Under Armour clothing line, Project Rock, Johnson will rake in a whopping $87.5 million this year.

Did you know Vin Diesel once directed a feature film? It’s true! The Fast and Furious star made his feature directorial debut with the 1997 flick Strays. And while he’s directed a couple of shorts and a TV episode since then, we have yet to see the return of Vin Diesel: Filmmaker. And according to Steven Spielberg, Diesel’s abandonment of the director’s chair is a “crime of cinema”, and who are we to argue with Steven Spielberg?

This week, Vin Diesel is back wearing one of his trademark tank-tops in Bloodshot, an action movie that asks: “What if Vin Diesel had robots in his blood?” Two new Bloodshot clips have found their way online, one showcasing Diesel learning all about his new robo-blood from Guy Pearce, and another where Diesel interacts with a swimming Eiza González.

It takes Vin Diesel exactly 8 minutes to put on a white tank-top in Bloodshot. I’m tempted to end this review right here, since that’s probably all you need to know about the film.

Vin Diesel plays by his own rules – he changed his name is Vin Diesel, after all – which means he’s perfectly happy to give away secrets that producers and filmmakers would rather keep under wraps. Diesel also has a habit of sometimes talking about projects that don’t seem to be happening at all – it’s just how he rolls, folks. And now he’s done it again.
In a new interview, Diesel let the cat out of the bag and revealed that the Guardians of the Galaxy would be popping up in Thor: Love and Thunder.

Dominic Toretto can’t live his life a quarter mile at a time anymore after finding out he has a son in The Fate of the Furious.
