BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
While superhero films tend to get shafted at the Academy Awards, Guardians of the Galaxy was such a success that it would be in the Academy’s best interest to at least consider the film for the following categories. Seriously, Oscar officials, give this masterpiece a chance!
It’s safe to say that Awesome Mix Vol. 1 was one of the best parts of Guardians of the Galaxy, and if you’re looking for more music that helped shape the colorful sci-fi epic, you’re in luck. A new Awesome Mix has been revealed!
Director James Gunn has already done his part shutting down rumors of Adam Warlock's cocoon appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy - saying that it was just a cool looking item that he picked at random - but what about the rumors of Beta Ray Bill? Fans have been saying for months that the horse-faced alien appears in the museum of The Collector - and now the director has responded to those talks.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 may expand on the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2017, but don’t expect it to be one big set-up for the Avengers: Infinity War films. This ragtag group of misfits will be off doing their own thing.
James Gunn’s decision to cast Chris Pratt as Star-Lord in Guardians Of The Galaxy was regarded as a huge surprise when it was announced back in 2013. In fact it ultimately turned out to be a rather inspired choice. But there was an even more shocking comedian that almost usurped Chris Pratt to the role.
When it came to setting up for a sequel, the much adored Guardians of The Galaxy was about as subtle as Rocket Raccoon. Star-Lord's long lost father is out there. So, he must be involved in Guardians of The Galaxy 2, right? Sure. But it won't be the sequel's main plotline.
There are all kinds of fantastic Easter Eggs hidden within the Collector’s Museum in Guardians of the Galaxy. Of all the items, though, there is one that Marvel fans have been speculating about for months: the giant cocoon. Many have wondered if organic growth chamber could be the one that belongs to the heroic Marvel Comics character Adam Warlock – but was that director James Gunn’s original intention?
Since the release of Guardians of the Galaxy this past summer, fans have been making comparisons between the titular team and Marvel’s other golden group, The Avenges. But what sets them apart? According to Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, one key difference is the depth of his characters’ flaws.
Yesterday morning, I was invited to a small screening of the special features that will be featured on Guardians of the Galaxy’s upcoming home video release, and watching the various featurettes, deleted scenes and other video material I learned a whole bunch of cool new pieces of trivia about the film. And I’m happy to share with all of you!
James Gunn has explained that they had to alter Guardians Of The Galaxy’s conclusion because it was just way too freaking sad. And once you find out what it was you will understand why he really had no choice.
Guardians Of The Galaxy was not only one of the most successful films of the summer but it proved to be one of the most popular too. Its impending release on a bevy of platforms over the coming weeks is hugely anticipated, and behind-the-scenes footage will provide fans with a glimpse at how the blockbuster was created.
James Gunn has revealed that he has big plans for the future of the Guardians Of The Galaxy franchise. In fact he’d already figured out what he wanted to do with Star-Lord, Groot, Rocket, Gamorra, and Drax while working on the original.
Because some Hollywood movies feature titles with idoms or complicated phrases that won't market well in foreign territories, it's not uncommon for film's names to be changed when reels get sent overseas. This is why Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness was called Captain Supermarket in Japan and Woody Allen's Annie Hall was sold as Urban Neurotic in Germany (which is actually kind of an improvement).
If the continued success of Guardians of the Galaxy is any indication, audiences really only want to know more and more about the Marvel film, and the good news is that writer/director James Gunn is around to deliver.
If you're like me, you've spent the last month-and-a-half continually jamming out to the sounds of James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack. But did you know that there was originally going to be an additional music sequence that wound up getting cut from the film?
Earlier this week, we found out Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn originally wanted Stan Lee’s standard cameo to involve a pretty hilarious middle finger.
Out of all of the stuff that made it into Guardians Of The Galaxy, there was still one cameo that pushed the boundaries of Disney's better judgement. If you want to know what was too much for a film that included a line about “pelvic sorcery,” then you'll definitely want to see this.
While James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy certainly does have its connections to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it, those connections are actually rather thin in the grander scheme of things. The Avengers are palling around on Earth, and Star-Lord and his gang are on the other side of galaxy on their own adventure.
In this story, a moviegoer talks about how their autistic younger brother identified with Drax The Destroyer. As part of his condition, he cannot comprehend metaphors; much like Drax's literal mindedness in Guardians Of The Galaxy.
If there's a character from Guardians Of The Galaxy that could rival Rocket Raccoon for most popular Guardian, it has to be Groot. And now, you can plant a tree in his honor as part of a challenge that Vin Diesel and now James Gunn have laid down on the internet.
Before you get any further into this article, know that it contains some spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy (though you probably figured that out from the headline). If you haven't seen the new Marvel Studios film yet, I would recommend heading to one of the other excellent articles on the site!
Well, that brings up some possibilities. For one thing, it's probably not Yondu, the bounty hunter played by Michael Rooker: in addition to referencing Quill's father at the end of the movie, it seems like Yondu's story, according to Gunn's statement, is that the character has his own separate journey.
We're coming off of a Guardians Of The Galaxy high here, and while we're still hooked on that feeling it's time to look towards the future. But before we blast off to parts unknown, here's five things we learned this weekend thanks to James Gunn himself!
From the prototype Captain America shield hidden in Jon Favreau’s Iron Man to the blink-and-miss-it reference to the Avengers Tower in Joe and Anthony Russo’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel Studios movies are always jam packed with Easter Eggs – and the newly released Guardians of the Galaxy is no exception.
This weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy pulled off something rather spectacular. After years of being considered an extreme gamble and weeks of box office estimates pinning it at making under $70 million for its first three days, the film soared above expectations and managed to create a mini (for now) phenomenon.
