"DIE SPACESHIP!!!" Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL. 2 Gets A Brand New Trailer And Poster
2017 has turned up a good handful of widely approving cinema in recent weeks and no less, James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol. 2 shares the mantle. It's hugely deserved too, especially at this point with the first film holding up impressively at the box office and becoming the top grossing film of the summer in 2014, followed by news of the sequel's 100 rating among private viewing attendees besting Iron Man and The Avengers.
Of course, this all stands on the fact that the first film simply rocked in more ways than several, with a lively retro soundtrack as the musical bed setting the tone of a tale centered on a young boy spirited away into space and ultimately becoming the one of the universe's greatest assets in fighting the evil forces that threaten Earth and other planets. That mission continues on May 5 when Chris Pratt, Zoë Saldana, Dave Bautista, and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel return among the usual suspects to face greater threats that eventually span into the current production of Avengers: Infinity War slated for next year.
For all that and more, we are graced with a brand new trailer hitting even more of the right notes with action, spectacle, laughs and a closer that finally addresses the curiosity of fans regarding the story, all cued to the tune of Fleetwood Mac. The trailer premiered late Tuesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC and you can now view it below in addition to a brand new poster just beneath.
The past year or so have lended an ample opportunity to familiarize myself with the work of actor and producer Alexander Nevsky in lieu of his upcoming April 28 U.S. release, Black Rose. The film marks his directorial debut wherein he also stars in a formula slightly different from his usually known action star persona from his film career in Russia, and joined by none other than actress Kristanna Loken.
With the film a little over a week away from its limited theatrical release courtesy of ITN, we've already had the pleasure of sharing questions with one of the film's guest stars, actor Matthias Hues in which he delves deeply into his career history, progression and plans for the future. The same goes for Loken who now takes center stage in this week's interview following Hues which also briefly highlights something interesting about the new movie, as well as a little about herself in the years since making strides as the formidable cybernetic supervillain in Terminator …
It wasn't made clear just to what capacity actress Jeeja Yanin's role in Jesse Johnson's new movie, Triple Threat, would extend at the time when we broke the exclusive back in March. Needless to say that mystery now comes to an end with the Raging Phoenix and Chocolate star donning some serious tactical gear in a new promo photo featuring herself among the antagonists for the new Asian action movie currently in production in Thailand.
Yanin's cohorts as seen below include Ron Smoorenburg and Scott Adkins, Michael Bisping and Michael Jai White outlining the murderous cartel from which leading action stars Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais and Tiger Chen must protect a billionaire's daughter, played by none other than Celina Jade. SC Films International's own Mike Selby is producing along with Mike Gabrawy and Gary Hamilton of Arclight Films. Actor Chen is also producing the film as will Elliot Tong and Ying Ye with Seng Stunt comprising the stunt team and Tim Man serving as …
The hardcore fanbase cheering on martial arts action star Scott Adkins were vociferous in support of him obtaining a role in the months leading to the seventh installment of the Fast franchise, Furious Seven. Ultimately it never came to fruition, nor did the attempts to cheer him on for the role of Batman as it stands with Ben Affleck having earned his appeal with most fans now in lieu of Justice League and The Batman.
I guess one other question remains now: Could Adkins snag a role this time in the forthcoming ninth installment following the pivot taken in The Fate Of The Furious this month? Well, I guess that will depend on what the studio plans for it first, although to be frank, there's no reason why they shouldn't, and there's plenty of potential to go on. Gray's film still leaves you wanting to learn more about Charlize Theron's role as Cypher, as well as what remains to be seen with the current handling of Statham's portrayal of Decard Shaw next to the …
