Michelle Rodriguez, who reprises her role as Leticia Ortiz in 'Fast & Furious 6,' had nothing but praise for the popular film franchise, lauding its "multicultural voice" at the film's Los Angeles premiere.
"You know what I love about it? It's got this rare, multicultural voice of the rebellious outcasts of society," Rodriguez told OTRC.com. "And I think that that voice, that the multicultural cast itself, resonated worldwide."

Director Paul W.S. Anderson said that he spent several sequels trying to figure out how to bring back characters he had already killed off, but his plans came together in "Resident Evil: Retribution."
"It was fun to work old characters back in. Obviously, I loved working with Michelle on the first movie and we shot her in the head obviously, which kind of precluded her from coming back, but we always talked about the idea of bringing her back but couldn't figure out how," Anderson said in an interview provided by Screen Gems. "Then at the end of the third movie, where we kind of introduced the cloning idea, that's where it really kick started the idea of obviously, if you have a franchise that has cloning in it, then there's the possibility for dead characters to come back."
Michelle Rodriguez was surprised to get a call about appearing in "Resident Evil: Retribution," after her character was killed off in the first film of the franchise.
"How in the hell are you going to bring somebody back after they've been shot in the head?" Rodriguez asked in an interview provided by Screen Gems. "I did see the bullet actually exit the head in the back and splatter against the wall behind me with blood - how are you going to take that back? Please explain! And when he did, I was just like, 'Aww man! Really? How come I didn't think of that?' I should have known. It was so dumb of me not to ask."
Bridget Moynahan talked to OnTheRedCarpet.com about Earth's vulnerability and alien existence at the "Battle Los Angeles" premiere on March 8, 2011.
"It's fun to think about [aliens]," Moynahan told OnTheRedCarpet.com. "Obviously, a lot of people think it's fun to think about it because we make a lot of movies about the concept, but I think what's special about this one is the opening frames of the film and you recognize your home town and you recognize the vulnerability aspect of it and it makes you really nervous."
Michelle Rodriguez says training for her new alien action film "Battle: Los Angeles" was "pretty gnarly."
In "Battle Los Angeles," a Marine platoon is forced to defend Los Angeles after Earth is attacked by aliens. It's up to the Marine staff sergeant Michael Nantz (Aaron Eckhart) and his new crew to hold their ground against the unknown forces.
Aaron Eckhart talked to OnTheRedCarpet.com about drumming up some Marine brotherhood and letting his personalities 'out of the bag' one at a time at the "Battle Los Angeles" premiere on March 8, 2011.
"We went three weeks boot camp where we got to know each other, got to know our weapons in the middle of Louisiana in the summer time," Eckhart told OnTheRedCarpet.com. "So, it was really hot and sticky but it was great for the movie. Got to know each other really intimately, so you know, all that brotherhood's in the film."
