BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
We've previously reported that director James Wan would be able to finish the film thanks to the help of Walker's real-life family, and now we have photographic proof of how this might work, thanks to Vin Diesel.
The show prioritized the categories in which the winners were actually in attendance, which makes sense on paper but sadly, led to what should have been the most touching moment of the entire broadcast getting cut: the above acceptance speech from Vin Diesel.
When the short Guardians of the Galaxy featurette centering on Vin Diesel's Groot was released last week, I really only had one complaint: why not show us the character saying his famous line? In the comics, Groot is known for being an intelligent alien who only has the capacity to introduce himself, saying, "I am Groot," but the marketing for the film seems to make us want to wait for it
It's always a treat when an actor will go out of their way to give fans an inside look at their work. Vin Diesel is one of those actors, as he's often interacting with his fans on Facebook, sharing photos, thoughts and occasionally, inside information. The latest bit of bonus content comes in the form of Diesel up on his stilts for the role of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Earlier this afternoon we got a special close-up look at one of the strangest, most fascinating characters in James Gunn's upcoming Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy, but you didn't really think the studio would stop there, right?
Based on a script by Cory Goodman, who previously wrote the Paul Bettany action movie Priest, The Last Witch Hunter centers on the titular character (Diesel) as he discovers that the island of Manhattan is being overtaken by witches, and he assigns himself the job of putting down the infestation.
Following up on yesterday’s news that Fast and Furious 7’s release date has been pushed back to April 10, 2015 comes a very vague but notable update on the plot of the new film, which not only indicates that Paul Walker's character will be a part of the movie, but that Walker himself will remain a lead.
Marvel’s “worst-kept secret” has been confirmed. Vin Diesel, gravel-voiced star of the Fast & Furious franchise, will lend his signature pipes to the character of Groot in Jaes Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Following the death of Paul Walker, the future of Fast & Furious 7 was uncertain, as the film was partway through production when Walker died tragically in a car accident late last month. Production has since been halted, but today, Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel has shared the new release date for the seventh film in the franchise
Diesel occasionally answers questions from fans with his signature mix of openness and mystique. In one of these informal facebook Q&As, Diesel recently dropped some curious claims about the upcoming Kojak remake, suggesting Life of Pi helmer Ang Lee might helm.
Based on the popular third person shooter video game series, Kane & Lynch will an anti-hero thriller that follows two escaped death row inmates on a quest to retrieve a heisted fortune.
Sooner or later, Hollywood is going to run out of people for Vin Diesel to fight on screen, and at that point Universal might have to park the Fast & Furious franchise in the garage for good. But that time has not arrived yet.
Vin Diesel Isn't Signed For Guardians Of The Galaxy Just Yet, Marvel Studios President Talks Ant-Man
If you were to ask Vin Diesel if he has a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he would tell you that he is playing the tree-like alien known as Groot in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. That, however, is not the same story that is being told by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
This past weekend director James Gunn announced that principal production on Marvel Studio's Guardians of the Galaxy has come to and end - but there's still plenty of work that needs to be done. Just like all big, sci-fi blockbusters, the movie is going to need to spend a number of months in post-production so that digital effects artists and editors can put all of the finishing touches on the film and complete it as the director's original vision.
You’d think the film might be available on DVD and Blu-ray already, but Universal Studios Home Entertainment won’t be releasing Fast & Furious 6 onto Blu-ray or DVD until December 10. Fans who are super invested in nabbing a copy of the film will be able to purchase it on Digital HD beginning on November 19.
I really hope that this well-dressed first impression is nothing like Russell looks for the rest of the film. I truly want him to wear a suit made out of chainmail or knives or something. I know these movies aren’t so far out as The Expendables when it comes to ratcheting up the cheesiness, but it’s getting there, and I think Wan is the guy to blow the ceiling off.
No matter what may actually be true about the top-billed stars in Fast & Furious 7 or who's getting the biggest paycheck, we all know that the real star of the movie is the cars and how many ridiculous things director James Wan can think to do with them. But for the sake of his ego, and to not rub things in after the fairly disappointing performance from Riddick, we'll go ahead and call Vin Diesel and Paul Walker the stars of Fast & Furious 7.
It’s Labor Day weekend here at the Jersey Shore. And though I haven’t been able to track down my boys Paul DelVecchio and Michael Sorrentino I’m still getting my party on. For instance, last night a house full of sub two-year-olds went to bed at 8:30 and us adults made it up until 11PM before crashing. So I think I know a little something about keeping the Jersey Shore right. This week we’ve got a slow Labor Day as Riddick comes back to the big screens
When it was announced earlier this month that Vin Diesel would be voicing Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy it was met with some mixed reactions. While many agree that Diesel's deep voice is likely perfect for an alien that is essentially a walking tree, many of the star's biggest fans were disappointed that the actor wouldn't be playing a larger role in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In the new film, Riddick is stranded on a desolated planet when a team of bounty hunters locks in on his location and aims to claim the bounty that’s on his head. With a solar storm bearing down on the warring parties, Riddick knows that the mercenaries are the least of his worries.
Hopefully Diesel's attempt at launching his very own original sci-fi franchise will go better than Will Smith's attempt did earlier this year. While it did end up making a good chunk of money overseas, After Earth was a complete box office disaster when it came out in May, and to date it has only managed to make $60 million in the United States. Certainly one good idea for Diesel's project would be to not hire M. Night Shyamalan.
After a few months of speculation, we now officially know what Vin Diesel's role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be. The Fast & Furious 6 star has confirmed that he will indeed voicing the tree-like alien Groot in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy.
We've been hearing rumors for a while now about a potential role for action star Vin Diesel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and today it appears that the actor may have revealed his part. If Diesel's popular Facebook page is to be believed, he is going to voice the alien living tree known as Groot in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. Below you can find the image he posted, which came without any kind of caption.
One thing that may have drawn Diesel to World's Most Wanted is the presence of producer Neal Moritz. The star and the producer have not only collaborated on almost all of the Fast & Furious movies, but also 2002's xXx. Moritz's other credits include the recently released R.I.P.D., Jack The Giant Slayer, the Total Recall remake, and 21 Jump Street. The actor will also be producing the new project.
If you are a dragon… do not try to eat Vin Diesel's fingers. This is just one of many lessons to be learned in this new restricted trailer for Riddick, which premiered earlier today during the film's Comic-Con panel and is now online so the rest of us get to feel like we were there. And anyway, if you were there to see it in person, all the other geeks would have seen you cringing when Diesel kicks a blade and chops a guys face in half
