“Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ continues the team’s adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.”

    —IMDB

One word: amazing! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 does not disappoint. The film looks at the characters allowing for character growth while also establishing a family unit for the characters. The movie goes back to trace back the origins of Peter/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt). But there’s more to this film than just that. It had heart and focuses on the Guardians not just as a group of heroes or friends, but as a family. And that’s one of the things that makes this film so good because everyone focuses on the characters and their dynamics with one another. They care about each other, they fight with one another and for one another. They are a strong unit and the cast and crew make sure that that resonates off the screen.

Fast & Furious 6’s Luke Evans To Star In Dracula


By:  Eric Eisenberg Next month Luke Evans will be going toe-to-toe with Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and the rest of the Fast & Furious crew as the main villain of Justin Lin‘s Fast & Furious 6, but for his next antagonist turn he’ll be playing a character with a bit more myth and legend behind him. According to Variety, Evans has signed on for the titular role in Universal’s upcoming Dracula, a new film based on Bram Stoker’s most famous creation. Set to be directed by Gary Shore, who has been connected to the project since last February, the project is said to mix both “mythology and true history,” … Continue reading Fast & Furious 6’s Luke Evans To Star In Dracula

Paul Walker Will Be The New Agent 47 In Hitman Reboot


By:  Eric Eisenberg The first attempt at a Hitman movie, based on the popular video game series, was a bit of a train-wreck. Not only was the Xavier Gens-directed film completely panned by critics – earning only 14% on Rotten Tomatoes – it failed to go anywhere at the box office, opening at number four domestically and falling just short of $100 million worldwide by the end of its run. As a result, the fact that we haven’t heard about a possible sequel in the last six years is no big surprise, but no franchise is free from the “R” word: Reboot. And that’s … Continue reading Paul Walker Will Be The New Agent 47 In Hitman Reboot

Vin Diesel Isn’t Looking So Good In New Riddick Image


By:  Eric Eisenberg It’s strange to think how long fans have been waiting to see Riddick, the upcoming sequel to Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick. Not only will it be the first movie in the franchise since 2004, the project actually started shooting all the way back in January of 2012. But our time without the Alpha Furyan is almost over. Universal will be releasing the movie in September of this year, which means that it will probably be a few months until we see any actual footage, but thanks to Vin Diesel‘s Facebook page we’re never in short supply of stills. Once again … Continue reading Vin Diesel Isn’t Looking So Good In New Riddick Image

By: Sean O’Connell Vin Diesel’s Facebook page continues to be one of the best places for updates on the action star’s upcoming projects. And really, isn’t that the best use of a major star’s social media pages? You’d rather see first-look images from Riddick or Fast Six over updates on what Diesel had to eat this morning, right? With no additional information, Diesel posted this picture on his Facebook page. It shows futuristic anti-hero Riddick contemplating … er, something while sitting in a futuristic motorcycle in the rain. Feelings. Diesel has them.

Vin Diesel’s Kojak Movie Brings On Skyfall Writers


By:  Kristy Puchko Screenwriting team Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have made a career out of penning James Bond thrillers from The World is Not Enough to Casino Royale and Skyfall. With the latest of these scoring widespread praise and tearing it up at the box office—to the tune of $951 million worldwide to date—this dynamic duo is being sought by studios looking to create smart and exhilarating action features.
