Seemingly every Fast & Furious movie builds up to one moment: Vin Diesel fighting the big bad guy. Usually, that big bad guy is also, well, big—someone like the Rock or Jason Statham. And as cool as that moment usually is, a new video proves one word can make it so much better: lightsabers.
The filmmakers behind 2018's Avengers: Infinity War probably aren’t ready to talk too much about its secrets but Vin Diesel doesn’t give a fuck. On Facebook Live, the voice of Groot revealed that, yes, he and the Guardians of the Galaxy will be in the next Avengers film.
Earlier this week we learned that Jet Li will join star Vin Diesel in director D.J. Caruso’s xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. Now, here’s more intriguing news: Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior, Furious 7) has signed on, too.
xXx: The Return of Xander Cage has added Jet Li to its cast, and our interest in Vin Diesel’s latest project just became exponentially stronger. While not much is known about the martial arts legend’s character—is he the main villain, or what?—he will definitely get to “square off” against Diesel’s Cage.
Is there anything Vin Diesel can’t will into existence? His 2009 return to the Fast and Furious fold helped turn that franchise into a monster. He’s got a xXx sequel on the way, and has already made two sequels to Pitch Black. Now, that latter world will expand into TV.
There are some action movies that just embrace the total absurdity of their own existence, and invite you to come along for a crazy silly ride. These are among my favorite sorts of movies out there, and I’m happy to report that The Last Witch Hunter is a pretty good addition to this canon.
Fantasy legend J.R.R. Tolkien means a lot of things to a lot of people. To Vin Diesel, what’s really inspiring about Tolkien is the way he writes about death. Tolkien is a touchstone for Diesel, and he was a huge influence on Diesel’s new film The Last Witch Hunter.
Long before Vin Diesel was Groot, he teased fans about joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So few thought saying a few words as a talking tree would be enough for the star. In a new interview with io9, Diesel teased something very different could be on the horizon.
Vin Diesel is an incredibly busy guy. He’s got The Last Witch Hunter coming out this month; a director just signed for Fast and Furious 8, and he’s long teased a return to the world of XXX, too. We recently spoke to Diesel about all those things and he offered up some new, exclusive, information.
Before Fast and Furious turned into one of the biggest franchises in the world, people though of Vin Diesel of a man of three franchises. Fast and Furious, of course, Pitch Black and xXx. Even though Diesel only showed up in the first xXx film, he long said he’d return to the spy-fi series. Now he will.
There’s a lot of silly fun going on, in this first look at The Last Witch Hunter—a movie where immortal Vin Diesel teams up with Rose Leslie and Elijah Wood to kill Witches and skeletal monsters. But seriously, the real highlight is his glorious, glorious beard in all the sequences set in the past. Look at it.
Vin Diesel is a witch hunter. Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones) is a witch. Michael Caine is a priest. Together, they fight crime! Wait, no. That’s wrong. They fight evil witches!
When Guardians of the Galaxy is released in other countries, the other Guardians may be dubbed by other actors, but not Groot. This video shows Vin Diesel recording Groot's lines — er, line — in several different languages for international releases. Want to know how to say "I am Groot" in Russian? Just watch.
The third installment of the Riddick franchise may have turned our favorite antihero into a peeping tom, but that didn't stop it from being a huge hit on DVD. And because of that, Riddick is getting another movie!
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn put to rest any remaining questions surrounding Vin Diesel's role by posting this picture of Diesel with the tree-like Groot on Facebook. Soon we'll find out how many ways Diesel can say, "I am Groot!"
Vin Diesel has released behind-the-scenes Guardians of the Galaxy footage. Watch it now.
There aren't too many characters like Richard B. Riddick nowadays. He's an old-fashioned sort of anti-hero, whose amoral brutality is tempered by a code of honor. He was great in his first movie, but it turns out that antiheroes have a hard time supporting a franchise. As his new movie, Riddick, sadly proves.
Three new Riddick clips have slunk out of the shadows, and you can't say the character isn't multifaceted. Above, he woos Katee Sackhoff (by threatening to kill people), then below he saves a space puppy (by killing a big alien), and then he kills a dude (...by, uh, killing him). That's versatility!
Finally, the first unedited-for-trailers Riddick footage we've seen in nine long years. THIS is what the new Riddick movie will feel and look like: Riddick killing things. Win. It's been way too long since we've seen the Furyan in action!
