Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: August 22, 2017

By 2014, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was already an unstoppable juggernaut. Still relishing in the success of 2012’s The Avengers making over $1.5 billion at the box office, the MCU took a chance on a rag tag group of not-so familiar superheroes, The Guardians of the Galaxy. For 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, director James Gunn (Slither) blended the perfect mixture of action and comedy, and made some of the best gambles in the history of film casting. The doofus from Parks and Recreation, a WWE wrestler, Vin Diesel to voice a walking tree who says three words… this bizarre recipe generated $773 million in domestic profits and proved that the MCU was borderline infallible. Guardians just felt different from the other good, yet generic superhero outings and it remains one of the most beloved films of its genre.

The Fate of the Furious starring Vin Diesel Fast and Furious

The Fast and Furious franchise isn’t what it used to be. While that may not be so bad, it is always looking for new and inventive ways to outdo themselves. Except, they may be running out of ideas here on earth. There has been speculation that Dom and his crew could head to space. How they achieve that is yet to be seen. But they may need to find a new director considering F. Gary Gray may not return to helm a Fast and Furious film for the second time. Check out what he has to say and the possibility of heading out into space, below.

Yondu and Rocket in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2
Director: James Gunn
Screenwriter: James Gunn
Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 136 Minutes
Release Date: May 5, 2017

James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy was once considered one of the riskiest films that Marvel Studios could ever release. It was an unknown property which cast three relative unknowns and gave two A-listers voice roles. However, the film’s surprising success proved that a quirky, hilarious, musically-charged space opera could work as a superhero property. Who would have thought a roguish space outlaw, an alien assassin, an alien manic, a gun-toting raccoon, and a talking tree would be our favorite a-holes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Now they are back for round two in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. As with all sequels to a universally loved film, expectations run unbelievably high. Fortunately, Gunn never misses a beat. It’s absolutely terrific and just as fun, if not more fun, than the first. But it’s also one of the few Marvel films that’s emotionally driven. Check out my full review below.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Soundtrack List

It really wouldn’t be much of a Guardians of the Galaxy movie without an Awesome Mix soundtrack. We’ve heard little teases of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack from trailers and various TV spots, but James Gunn has said that some of those songs won’t appear on the final soundtrack cut. Having seen the film yesterday, there is some truth to that. But there are also some very welcomed additions.

Now the full soundtrack list for the movie has been revealed, and like any Awesome Mix soundtrack, there is an eclectic mix of ’70s and ’80s tunes that sure to get you singing along. Check out the full list plus some quotes from Gunn as to why he picked some of them.

It’s customary for true Marvel fans to stay throughout the entire credits of any Marvel Studios film. Whatever scene appears during said credits will either be a nice segue into the next chapter of the MCU or a teaser.

There is no standard number when it comes to how many end-credits scenes a film should have. But we now know Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will have five of them. More on the story below.

The Fate of the Furious starring Vin Diesel

The Fate Of The Furious
Director: F. Gary Gray
Screenwriter: Chris Morgan
Cast: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kurt Russell, Scott Eastwood, Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 136 Minutes
Release Date: April 14, 2017

With each new installment of the Fast and Furious franchise comes a new definition of fun. That is especially true for The Fate of the Furious. For nearly a decade Dom and his family have gone through the perils of street racing, heists, and avenging a fallen family member. And though it has reinvented itself to stay fresh and contemporary, one thing about the franchise remains true: it’s all about family. But the strength of that bond will be put to the test when an act of betrayal forces Dom to cross everyone he knows and go on a high-stakes crime spree that could put the world in the hands of a dangerous cyber terrorist.

Of course, another constant for the film is the fact that it continually jumps the shark whenever the opportunity presents itself. And seeing how car technology has advanced, The Fate of the Furious shifts jumping the shark into high gear. Check out the full review below.

‘The Fate Of The Furious’ Trailer: It’s Dwayne Johnson vs A Torpedo

Dwayne Johnson in The Fate of the Furious

It’s hard to believe that we’ve only gotten two trailers for The Fate of the Furious so far. Universal has just released the second one today (watch the first here), and if you thought you’ve seen everything in this franchise, well, the new trailer shatters that notion with a torpedo and a few missiles.

Yes, now the family will have to contend with military weaponry. Tanks were one thing, but a submarine is something that they will have to survive if they want to rescue Dom (Vin Diesel). Check out the newest trailer below.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Team

Marvel Studios has released a new trailer for this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The trailer was shown during tonight’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, and it is just as funny and exciting as you would expect (maybe more). You can check it out here below.

In previous trailers director James Gunn has purposely held back revealing too much of the film’s story, instead focusing on our heroes’ bickering in the heat of battle. There were weird space beasts, dazzling battles, and Rocket Raccoon trying to keep Baby Groot from activating an atomic bomb. Priceless stuff, but fans have long clamored for more Guardians goodness. Tonight we got it, and then some.
