A photo of Vin Diesel with a bushy beard and looking menacing was released recently to help promote his fantasy film "The Last Witch Hunter". The picture comes from his Facebook page and fans of the actor are becoming very excited about this movie even though it will not be released until October 2015. Ironically in the summer of 2015 he has another highly anticipated movie being released, "Furious 7.
The movies are completely different genres as the latter is an action-adventure crime drama while the former, "The Last Witch Hunter", is a fantasy film. The thing the two movies have in common is that they have one of the most popular actors in Hollywood starring in both projects and thus comes the question that has become a major topic among some entertainment observers is which movie will do better at the box office?
It seems that each time a "Fast and the Furious" movie is released with Vin Diesel at the helm the film breaks box office records. However, he is also an actor who has risen to cult status because of his sci-fi action thriller 'Riddick' franchise and these movies have proven to be huge box office successes as well which gives his new 'sci-fi film much reason to feel confident about its potential for success.
The actor noted that a similar situation occurred with him fifteen years ago when his movies "Boiler Room" and "Pitch Black" were released and thus now the question is will one film lose out because of the other?
Will the exposure that Vin Diesel will undoubtedly and deservedly receive for his movie "Furious 7" than undercut that of "The Last Witch Hunter" because fans might have seen so much of him in the promotions leading up to the earlier film, "Furious 7" which will be released in early summer and likely be in theatres for a very long time.
Vin Diesel is in an enviable position because some entertainment observers are predicting that he will have two hit films in 2015 and with how loyal his fans are it would not be a surprise to see him have the two biggest drawing films of 2015 with the only question being, who gets the number one spot at the box office?
No one knows what movie will get the top spot but it is very probably that in 2015 Vin Diesel will likely reaffirm his status as one of Hollywood's box office stars, a situation that will provide him much power when talking about new projects in the future.
