So much to tell you… so much to share… as you know, we have been filming in Scotland. We threw a party for the crew last night in appreciation for all of their hard work. It was one of those moments that so often in the past we were together smiling and getting everyone drunk, especially Justin. Haha. Who by the way would make you so proud with what he is accomplishing with this film. Nathalie was there, in her loving spirit. Oh, and John Cena was there, who you would just love. His gratitude is palpable… and knowing you, you would just want him to win. This week the studio came to meet about the next chapter, your ears were ringing again. You would have gotten a kick out of the fact that we met in a chapel. It was profound… normally today I would be planning how to embarrass you with a birthday cake. Haha. Instead I reflect on how lucky I am to call you my brother. The tears never go away, but they change… from that of mourning to that of grace. We only hope to make you proud. Speaking of which, guess what message I woke up to… your daughter. Meadow sending me love on this day. Wow, she knows me so well. She has your heart. Happy birthday… it’s amazing, but somehow you continue to make the world a better place.
In my son’s voice… Do you even Oscars bro? Hahaha. Such a great night, so much love and so many cool moments. And sooo much family, the Fast Family, the Marvel Family, the xXx Family, the Riddick Family, the Bloodshot Family… Spike Lee Family, Steven Spielberg Family… the list goes on.
My Godfather, who was the very definition of an artist, after waiting for me to come home to New York to spend his last moments… finally passed on… So grateful for your existence. I wouldn’t be who I am today without you. Rest In Peace…
Thank you all for the support and love you have shown this franchise… 1 billion doesn’t come without sacrifice and commitment. Charlize was a great addition to this chapter, although there were the barbecues on the weekends with our children all playing together and moments of levity in between set ups, when We zoned in to our respective characters it was serious business, pushing one another to create dynamic, iconic and memorable performances. She really committed to playing the villain and as the actor and producer I can’t thank her enough. To all the cast and crew, thank you for believing in our saga and your willingness to give everything you had. Most importantly to the fans who have been there from the beginning. We truly make these with Our hearts.
The music of my brothers Tego and Don has inspired me more than you can imagine. In someways it helped me to imagine myself returning to the Dom character, which is why you hear the song before my cameo in Tokyo Drift. If you haven’t seen the short film LOS BANDOLEROS that bridges the First Fast with the Fourth one you are missing out on key moments in the saga.
The full trailer is on my Facebook page. So exciting!!! #Repost @jamesgunn with @repostapp
I just premiered the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Teaser Trailer in Brazil at CCXP and it was truly one of the greatest moments of my life. What a warm and wonderful crowd.
There are moments that bring you back, moments that remind you more than others of the history… This is franchise we all have worked so hard on for the past 16 years, a crew of street racers that has represented brotherhood in Our millennium. But there are moments that are more painful then others in this process, the ones that bring you back to the brotherhood you know longer have.
One of many magically fun moments on set… Rose Leslie plays a powerful but benign Witch/Dreamwalker superbly. Grace Randolph said she played a better character than her GoT role. Wow.
Proud of the whole amazing cast!!!
