10 Galactic Truths We Learned From The Guardians Of The Galaxy Q&A
Facebook was the place to be this afternoon for an in-depth Guardians of the Galaxy live Q&A and trailer release event. On hand to answer questions were director James Gunn, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige, and stars Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, and Karen Gillan. What followed was a 45 minute session of questions about subjects both serious (running time/getting into character), as well as funny (Rocket's work ethic/who'd win in a fight between Hulk and Drax). Amidst the thousands of posts were a couple really good pieces of information, and we've got a couple more pieces to the puzzle that go beyond what was seen in the new trailer.
1. Even Star Lord's Mix Tape Is Being Treated As SecretEveryone has identified the film with its successful usage of Blue Suede's Hooked On A Feeling, so much so that the single spiked in sales after the first trailer's debut. But what we learned today is that there's going to be plenty more hits where that came from, and it's all part of the film's plan to help us identify with Peter Jason Quill.
James Gunn: "Hooked on a Feeling is one of the songs on Quill's mixed cassette tape - the last reminder he has of his childhood on earth. The music is also a way to keep us grounded in this out of the world space epic. We have lots of cool songs - more will be revealed soon!"
If the trailer is any indication, Spirit In The Sky will also play a part in Quill's musical backstory. Also, if the mix tape is that important to the character, it wouldn't be a shock (in fact, it'd almost be expected) if it were to get its own soundtrack release. Whether it will be independent of the Tyler Bates score and whatever pop music compilation they may have planned for the film (if one is in fact in the offing), is to be seen. But if this winds up happening, then fans will probably be begging for the exact mixes used for both songs in the trailers.
