It's all happening! Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is dropping a trailer ... tomorrow night! That's right, after months of waiting, we'll finally get a full trailer for James Gunn's upcoming adaptation of the Marvel comic, and to tide you over until then, the studio has released some new photos featuring the intergalactic heroes, including one very popular talking raccoon.
'Riddick' was a low-budget production made entirely from passion and duct tape, but it ended up being one the more pleasant surprises of 2013, performing well at the box office and satisfying all the fans who were let down by 'The Chronicles of Riddick.' Now that the 'Riddick' DVD is selling well, Universal is looking to develop a fourth entry in the series. That's the basic gist of the news. However, since franchise star/mastermind Vin Diesel is a certified weirdo (albeit, the lovable and awesome kind), the official announcement is significantly stranger than you'd think.
Leave it to Vin Diesel to bring us all the breaking news this weekend. Yesterday, the actor posted a photo on Facebook of himself with a statue of Groot from 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' confirming what we already pretty much knew about his part in the film. Tonight, the actor brings us official word on the anticipated release date switch of 'Fast and Furious 7,' which has now sped into a 2015 slot.
While we wait patiently for more sneak peeks at Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' the always reliable Vin Diesel has taken to his awesome Facebook page with a little somethin' somethin' for anxious fans to help make the wait go by a little easier. In a new pic posted this afternoon, the star poses with his alter ego from the film, the superhero Groot, and we gotta say, this would make a pretty adorable greeting card.
Can't wait for your first look at 'Fast and Furious 7' footage? Well, even though the upcoming sequel is still filming and nine months away from hitting theaters, you can actually see your first glimpse of the film in two weeks, when the 'Fast and Furious 6' DVD and Blu-ray hits shelves. So, what will you be seeing? Spoilers ahead!
Since the end of 'Avengers,' fans have been teased with the notion that Thanos is the evil mastermind behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While he won't serve as the main protagonist in 'Avengers 2' (instead deferring to Ultron), multiple Marvel sources have said that Thanos is a big part of next summer's 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' With that cast announced and the film wrapped, we have to wonder - who exactly is playing Thanos?
Vin Diesel has been teasing fans left and right about his involvement in 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' but the star of the 'Fast and Furious' franchise will indeed be voicing the tree-like superhero Groot for Marvel's space opera. During his downtime on the set of his latest, 'Fast and Furious 7,' the actor taped a video of himself practicing being 7-1/2-feet-tall for the role, and offered it up for the enjoyment of his fans.
While 'Fast and Furious 7' is revving up production in Georgia, with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson heading there straight from working on Brett Ratner's 'Hercules,' we still have the 'Fast and Furious 6' DVD and Blu-ray release to look forward to. You can own all the action when it hits home this December, just in time for the holidays!
