With March being our biggest month yet in terms of new movies, April becomes a quieter period in terms of new releases. Despite that, we have two massive blockbusters hitting the movies this April to continue on from the jam packed month that was March, and believe it or not, they both star Vin Diesel and Kurt Russell.
The Fate of the Furious – April 12th
The 8th film in The Fast and the Furious franchise, The Fate of the Furious (missed opportunity to spell it The F8 of the Furious) will be the first of the franchise to be made after the tragic death of Paul Walker. The Fate of the Furious will see our Furious family break as Dom turns his back on the crew to team up with a mysterious woman.
The Fate of the Furious brings back a similar cast to Furious 7, including; Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris and Kurt Russell. It also adds big names in Charlize Theron, Kristofer Hivju and Helen Mirren.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – April 25th
Perhaps the most anticipated film of the month, the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel will be hitting our screens once again after an unexpected fantastic first film. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be the groups last screen appearance before appearing in next years MCU team up, Avengers: Infinity War.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will bring back our favourites from the first film including Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of (Baby) Groot, Karen Gillan as Nebula and Michael Rooker as Yondu. We also have a few additions to the cast with Kurt Russell joining as Ego, Nathan Fillion as Simon Williams, and Sylvester Stallone in a mystery role.
