David Leitch Confirmed To Helm Fast And Furious’ Hobbs/Shaw Spin-Off

Published

on

Eight instalments in. But The Fast And The Furious franchise shows no signs of slowing down, especially if you consider the box office takings of last year’s outing The Fate Of The Furious ($1.2 billion worldwide).

Yet with much scrutiny still over the working relationship between series mainstay Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson whose character Luke Hobbs was introduced in Fast Five. Along with the blossoming bromance Johnson has formed on-screen with Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw. It’s hardly a surprise Universal Pictures are looking to capitalise with a hotly-anticipated spin-off.

Confirmed on Twitter earlier today. The ninth film in the series solely focusing on Hobbs/Shaw will be directed by David Leitch, who has certainly proved his high-octane action credentials already with Keanu Reeves’ John Wick and Atomic Blonde starring Charlize Theron. Next month, we’ll see if he can build on the initial 2016 success for Ryan Reynolds’ merc with a mouth, with ‘Deadpool 2’.

Up next for Statham is shark horror ‘The Meg’, with Dwayne Johnson currently starring in videogame adaptation Rampage.

The Hobbs and Shaw spin-off is slated for a July 2019 release.

Zachary Levi Is ‘Shazam!’ In Official Teaser Trailer

Published

on

Not content with seeing Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ steal all of the DC glory at Comic-Con this weekend. Zachary Levi is taking a much lighter approach to this often brooding universe with ‘Shazam!’, working like a charm in the fun-filled teaser trailer released by Warner Bros.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, the initial footage focuses on foster kid Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is chosen to channel superpowers through an ancient wizard, ultimately turning into the titular character with the childish sensibilities intact. Super strength? Flying? He seems more concerned on how he’s meant to pee in his red suit. Yet he’s soon having to use his abilities for good, when faced with Mark Strong’s big bad Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

‘Shazam!’ swoops into UK cinemas in April 2019.

Fantastical Debut Trailer For ‘Aquaman’ Welcomes You To Atlantis

Published

Still reeling from the critical reception which greeted ‘Justice League’ last year. Director James Wan and leading man Jason Momoa are tasked with keeping Warner Bros’ DCEU above water this December with ‘Aquaman’ and after seeing the action-packed first footage straight from Comic-Con, they seem up for the challenge.

Billed as the origin story of the half-human half -Atlantean. We catch glimpses of Arthur Curry’s (Momoa) family unit, most notably Nicole Kidman’s Queen Atlanna and his feisty red-haired ally Mera (Amber Heard), merely teasing his potential king status as he clashes with half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson), allowing Wan to dial up the underwater spectacle and throw in a goat for good measure.

We’re positively drowning in excitement already. Here’s the trailer…

First ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Trailer Is An Atomic Blast

Published

on

Well. If you thought there wasn’t enough monster mayhem in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 effort.

Michael Dougherty’s (Krampus) 2018 film seems awfully keen to amend this with the epic debut trailer for ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’, pitting the iconic creature against some of his greatest adversaries. Expect stunning money shots of Mothra, Rodan and a certain three-headed titan by the name King Ghidorah, whilst the human heroics are left to the Russell family consisting of Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler.

The film roars into cinemas next May.
