Over the last few days, James Gunn has been sharing some photos from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 cast rehearsals, featuring a very grumpy Michael Rooker and a cast of total screw-ups who have to learn a thing or two from Dave Bautista. We still have a while to wait before we see the cast back in costume as the unlikely group of heroes, but these rehearsal photos make that wait a little easier.
Aside from Hugh Jackman’s “Old Man Logan” tipoff during last year’s Comic-Con, we don’t know much about The Wolverine 2. Director James Mangold is returning to the helm of the upcoming sequel, which doesn’t yet have a formal title, though it is expected to hit theaters in 2017. According to a new report, we may be learning a lot more about Jackman’s final outing as the iconic X-Men character as filming is set to begin this spring.
Although Ridley Scott recently said that Noomi Rapace would reprise her role — albeit briefly — as Dr. Elizabeth Shaw in Alien: Covenant, the director has now determined that the actress will actually not be returning for the upcoming Prometheus sequel / Alien prequel. Many assumed we might see how her ill-advised adventure with Michael Fassbender’s David panned out, though it’s fair to assume that things didn’t go so well.
The marketing geniuses behind Deadpool have been taking some unconventional tactics: there was that hilarious poop emoji billboard, and the billboards / posters promoting the film as a Valentine’s Day romance, and now the Merc With a Mouth wants you to get handsy with yourself, promoting a little self-love with some new PSAs about cancer awareness — for him and her!
Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for over 15 years. He’s appeared on screen as the iconic X-Men character in seven films, including his uncredited cameo in X-Men: First Class, and by the time The Wolverine 2 rolls around, we can round that number up to eight (and that’s not including the potential for cameos in X-Men: Apocalypse, which he’s denied, as well as Gambit). Fans have been wondering if Wolverine will be recast once Jackman exits the franchise, but according to Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg, that’s not likely to happen.
When does Vin Diesel sleep? The actor is, as always, keeping himself pretty busy. Diesel is currently filming xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage, while production on Fast and Furious 8 is revving up, and then he has to head into work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Today brings some…interesting…photos from the set of xXx 3, featuring Diesel, some crew members, and one of his female co-stars. And as always, Diesel wants you to know that he’s feeling #blessed.
Nicolas Winding Refn is currently in post-production on his next stylish thriller, The Neon Demon, which hits theaters this year and boasts an incredible cast, including Drive star Christina Hendricks. But the ever-busy director is already lining up his next project, which will team him with two of the writers behind the James Bond franchise and take him back to Asia, the setting of his divisive thriller Only God Forgives.
Liam Neeson is to director Jaume Collet-Serra what Leonardo DiCaprio is to Martin Scorsese. Neeson has become the action-dad-icon muse for Collet-Serra, who has just cast the leading man in yet another action film. The Commuter marks the fourth collaboration between Neeson and Collet-Serra, following Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night — all of which form a sort of informal trilogy of films in which Neeson plays a man burdened by his past who battles criminal elements while rocking a seriously sweet leather jacket.
Not that you were particularly worried or anything, but Marvel’s recent test screenings for Captain America: Civil War have yielded the most positive audience reactions since The Winter Soldier. Previously, the second Captain America film had received the highest marks at test screenings, which sounds about right considering that it’s the best MCU film to date. Could Civil War be even better?
We’re still waiting for more of an official update on what trailers we can expect to see during this year’s Super Bowl, but there’s one film that will definitely have a big presence at the game. Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With the Mouth will be on hand for the 2016 Super Bowl on February 7, with Fox planning some special preview content to run during and around the game. In addition, the studio has released a new clip, featuring Brianna Hildebrand’s Negasonic Teenage Warhead packing a serious punch.
