BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
Guardians of the Galaxy won’t be in theaters until midnight tomorrow, but incredible positivity leading up to its release has already resulted in an announced sequel. With James Gunn attached to both write and direct, the project was officially slated this past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con and is scheduled to come out on July 28, 2017. But what will it be about? The filmmaker at its helm is already dropping hints.
Marvel did not confirm on the story. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 has not officially been announced, and it was believed that the studio was waiting to see how the initial film did at the box office before revealing a sequel.
