The action packed trailer for the second instalment in the Spider-Man quadrilogy has been released. The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which will be released on April 18 2014, will see Spidey go up against Electro. It also hints at the villains for the next two films, as we see clues leading toward Doctor Octopus and The Vulture in Oscorp’s lab. This could also mean the introduction of the Sinister Six in one of the upcoming films. Despite the four main villains already being confirmed for each of the films, could this little tease mean that Spider-Man is heading toward an epic battle against a whole bunch of his enemies? I guess we will have to wait to find out since the third and fourth are not due until May 2016 and 2018. Whilst you are waiting take a look at the trailer below:
Previous | Paul Walker Dies Aged 40
By David Bosworth – @boz_worth
#HHKMovies has learnt of the untimely passing of The Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker. Paul was leaving an event for his own disaster charity Reach Out Worldwide with a friend as a passenger in the Porsche involved in the accident. Paul and the driver both lost their lives after the car, driven by his friend, collided with a lamp post and became ablaze. Emergency services responded to the incident, but both were pronounced deceased at the scene.
Here is a statement from the Paul Walker Facebook page:
Paul, better known for his central role in The Fast and The Furious franchise, playing ex FBI agent-turned street racer Brian O’Conner opposite Vin Diesel’s Dominic Torreto and most recently WWE turned action star Dwayne Johnson. The franchise began in 2001 and has spanned 12 years and 6 box office hits. The latest release in the series, Fast and Furious 6, being the biggest hit yet. Filming for the seventh installment has been ongoing since Summer with #HHKMovies sharing this picture from Vin Diesel’s Facebook page back in September.
Here is my favourite Paul Walker quote-
” I live by ‘Go big or go home.’ That’s with everything. It’s like either commit and go for it or don’t do it at all. I apply that to everything. I apply that to relationships, I apply that to like sports, I apply that to everything. That’s what I live by. That’s how I like it.”
Paul, as well as being an accomplished actor and producer, was also a philanthropist and charity giver. Being involved so passionately in charity, Paul set up natural-disaster response charity Reach Out Worldwide.
“Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW) – consisting of skilled volunteers – is a non-profit registered 501(c)3 organization. While part of a relief team responding to the massive earthquakes that devastated Haiti on January 12, 2010; Actor/Producer Paul Walker saw a gap between the availability of skilled resources and the requirement for such personnel in post-disaster situations. Following the trip he contacted a group of his friends to assist him in forming ROWW with the purpose of filling this unmet need.
ROWW is a network of committed professionals with first responder skill-set (including project management, logistics, heavy equipment operation, EMT, paramedic, firefighting, and healthcare, etc). The volunteers provide their expertise when disasters strike and augment local resources with the goal of accelerating relief efforts on a worldwide basis. ROWW has developed Standard Operating Procedures that facilitate arriving quickly, clearing access, providing basic necessities and medical assistance to ease the survivors’ pain and bringing hope in the bleakest of circumstances.”
Most recently, they have responded to Typhoon Haiyan that devastated the Philippines. Throughout the years the charity has helped thousands of people, saved countless lives and revived communities.
Both Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson took to Twitter to share their sadness and pay their respects to their co-star and their friend, the gone but never forgotten Paul Walker. With Facebook and Twitter communities saddened at his passing with #RIPPaulWalker trending worldwide.
The Hours was one of the last finished projects by Paul Walker and sees him as a father trying to keep his daughter alive in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The Hours will be released Dec, 2013.
Brick Mansions, where Paul plays an undercover cop, was another. To be released 2014.
We are still to find out what will be of his involvement of Fast and Furious 7.
We at HHKMag offer our condolences and thoughts to his family and friends during this heart-breaking time.
It’s with great sadness that HHKMag report this morning that Fast and Furious star Paul Walker died late last night aged 40. The man known as Brian O’Conner in the six Fast and Furious movies was leaving a charity event with a friend on November 30th, 2013 in Valencia, California as a passenger as the driver lost control of the car. Both Paul Walker and his friend were pronounced dead at the scene. Take a look at some of our favourite Paul Walker (aka Brian O’Connor) moments on the YouTube video below.
GFX by David Bosworth (@Boz_Worth)
Everybody knows we’re huge WWE and Movies fans, so it made perfect sense for the first “Mash Up” to be a combination of the WWE and the recently-released “Thor: The Dark World”. Our resident movie reviewer, GFX designer and all-around good guy @Boz_Worth created a brand new poster which integrated the two, and highlights the currently storyline of “The Authority” (Triple H / Stephanie McMahon) as the center focus replacing Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Natalie Portman (Jane Foster). Let us know what you think by using the Hashtag #HHKMovies on Twitter, and look out for more HHK Mash-Up’s in the future.

Welcome back earth dwellers to #HHKMovies review for Thor sequel “Thor: The Dark World”…..someone turn a light on, yeah?
The God of Thunder storms(ha!) back onto our silver screens with a flick of his long blonde locks and a wave of his magic hammer. Making women weak at the knees and some throw their undercrackers at the screen. Very unhygienic when they land in your popcorn.
Chris Hemsworth (Rush) with a return cast in Natalie Portman (Black Swan), Anthony Hopkins (Red 2) and Stellan Skarsgård (Angels & Demons) bring to life Marvel’s (@Marvel) comic creation of the life and hardships of Aasgards favourite ass-kicking, hammer-throwing prince! Of course we cannot miss out the Tom Hiddleston’s (War Horse) Loki…..the god of mischief, and boy does he live up to the hype. This Marvel phase 2 movie seems to follow the same lines as Iron Man 3 with alot more comedy and grandeur.
“Christopher Eccleston”, I hear you ask. “What about Christopher Eccleston?” He’s barely noticeable. I do wish they could have made him a more formidable foe.
Thor: The Dark World……gets Thor out of Thive……I couldn’t resist
