Spotlight Video of the Week:

Universal’s tribute to Paul Walkerloving-memory

With the sad and unfortunate passing of Paul Walker last week in a car accident, the Fast&Furious family put together a tribute video in memoriam honoring his work in the iconic role of Brian O’Conner. The studio has officially put a halt on production of the 7th installment for the time being, but this tribute is both touching and tasteful. RIP, Paul Walker.

Well, that’s it for this round of ‘Triple-T’!

My favorite trailers from today: The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Pompeii and Her.

Which ones are your favorites??

  1. Lots to be excited about here, although I have my reservations for Pompeii. I hope we are not looking at another Titanic; another Pearl Harbor. lol. It could be good.

    Monuments Men is one I really look forward to.


  2. A good selection as always. Pompeii looks pretty terrible. The Paul Walker tribute vid was really beautifully put together. I’m not going to pretend I was a particular fan of his as an actor. But 40 is way to fucking young to go, especially with a teenage daughter. Really sad stuff.
