Star of the fast and furious films, Paul Walker, has died. He was 40 and leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter.
Walker was a passenger in a friends car heading towards a charity event.
His death was confirmed in a tweet by New Regency productions.
Walker was about to begin a press tour on his latest movie, Hours, which had been scheduled for release later this month. He had also just finished work on the latest fast and furious movie.
Tributes have poured in across the Internet from fans and his friends. Tyrese Gibson said “my heart is hurting so bad, no one can make me believe this is real. Father god I pray that you send clarity over this because I don’t understand. We just celebrated your 40th birthday…my god…my god, I can’t believe I’m writing this.
A statement from Universal: “All of us at Universal are heartbroken. Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the ‘Fast and Furious’ films, and to countless fans.”
After taking an impressive £1.8million at the UK box office the fiftieth anniversary special of Doctor Who has made an impressive $4.8million.
The specially filmed 3D special played in 660 US cinemas on Monday.
In Australia it made $1.5M (AU).
After only being open for one day, Day of the Doctor globally racked up £6.5million and is currently second place in the US film charts.
With the success of this, I’d say a Doctor Who movie is pretty much guaranteed.
Pre-production has started on series 8 of Doctor Who and another director has been revealed, Paul Murphy.
Murphy will direct episodes 3 and 6. His previous credits include Waterloo Road, Trollied, Brookside, Casulty, Hollyoaks and Grange Hill.
Last month it was announced that Sightseers director Ben Wheatley will direct the first two episodes.
Filming starts next month and the series is expected to air in August/September 2014.
What did you think about day of the Doctor? And what would you like to see in Series 8? Leave a comment below.
Here is the highly anticipated trailer for the upcoming 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who, The of the doctor.
Two trailers are due to air BBC1 tonight, but as a reaction to one of them “accidentally” airing in Latin America lady night, the BBC have released it online today.
The special will air at 7.50pm on Saturday 23 November on BBC One.
Netflix and Disney have struck a deal
with ABC to co-produce four Marvel superheroes TV series, to be streamed exclusively on Netflix.
The first series’ will be Daredevil, followed by Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage.
The four serialised storyline’s will culminate in an Avengers-style superhero team-up, which will take place in a Netflix original film called The Defenders.
As ABC is involved there is always the possibility of an agents of shield cross-over.
I’m excited by this news, Netflix has a fairly great track record and producing original content.
However the series I most want to see is The Punisher, let’s just hope that happens.
