Director James Gunn Teases Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2

Director James Gunn Teases Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2
“We can expect something a little bit in the vein of the first movie and also different,” promised director James Gunn of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 during a wide-ranging Facebook Q&A in which he revealed that he’d just moved to Atlanta where the film will shoot. “I’m going to be here in Atlanta for nearly ten months,” he confirmed. Shooting begins in February. He teased that at least one new main character will join the Guardians... 

One Year On From Guardians Of The Galaxy Director James Gunn Thanks Fans

One Year On From Guardians Of The Galaxy Director James Gunn Thanks Fans
Two years ago this weekend internet consensus on the Guardians Of The Galaxy film was that it was going to tank. How could Marvel take this bunch of C-list characters – including a talking raccoon and a living tree, ffs – that nobody outside their creators had heard of and create a hit? It looked corny. It looked dopey. It looked like the MCU was about to implode. Of  course, internet consensus is an unreliable, lumbering beast, and more... 

Guardians of the Galaxy Review

Guardians of the Galaxy Review
When James Gunn was announced as director of a Marvel movie, some people were confused, some were excited. Having made R-rated flicks like Slither, and Super, as well as working on stuff for Troma, Gunn wasn’t exactly a name one would consider as a potential herald of a slice of the Marvel universe. Then again, Marvel have also employed people like Jon Favreau, Kenneth Branagh, and even Shane Black in the past. (Not forgetting, sadly not to...

Guardians of the Galaxy Second Trailer

Guardians of the Galaxy Second Trailer
Another trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy has arrived. Sadly it doesn’t quite have the flare and personality of what we’ve seen before. You get the impression this one’s for your average cinema goer and not the Marvel geeks. “From the studio that brought you…” Yeah, we know. But at least we get to see more Rocket Raccoon and that always makes everything 210% better. Guardians of the Galaxy is out in the UK... 

First Full Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy is Here!

First Full Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy is Here!
Yesterday we got to share with you some new pics and a teaser for the trailer that would air during Jimmy Kimmel Live in the US. But now we finally have the real deal so take a look! Wow, what a trailer. As an introduction to Peter Quill this one’s a good ‘un, the winding up of the finger being particularly nice. And it’s awesome to see John C. Reilly and Peter Serafinowicz casting their critical eyes over the Guardians. There’s... 

Karen Gillan Cast in Guardians of the Galaxy

Karen Gillan Cast in Guardians of the Galaxy
The cast for Guardians of the Galaxy just keeps on getting bigger. Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista and Zoe Saldana head up the main cast (so far) as The Star Lord, Drax the Destroyer and Gamora. Now we’ve discovered that Karen Gillan has signed on to play a female villain. Who that villain is we don’t know yet but it’s certainly a fun casting choice! The casting of Zoe Saldana alone was cause for excitement. Not only is she one of...

Guardians of the Galaxy has a lead: Zero Dark Thirty’s Chris Pratt
The search is over. James Gunn’s upcoming Marvel motion picture Guardians of the Galaxy finally has a confirmed lead: Chris Pratt. Pratt beat out such contenders as The Hobbit/Lincoln’s Lee Pace, Les Misérables’ Eddie Redmayne, and Zachary Levi. Pratt is known to American audiences as the actor who plays Andy Dwyer in the hilarious NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, and more recently Pratt has been making appearances on the silver screen, having... 

Joseph Gordon-Levitt to star in Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For

Joseph Gordon-Levitt to star in Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is proving to be the gift that keeps on giving. Thrown back into resurgence after the well-received (500) Days of Summer, he has since been part of many a lucrative hit. Since the 2009 anti-rom-com, Gordon-Levitt has been in films such as Inception, 50/50, The Dark Knight Rises, Looper and Lincoln. To star in those five movies alone is unprecedented, and yet JGL is one of Hollywood’s hottest current commodities. More recently... 

James Gunn shoots down Guardians of the Galaxy casting rumours

James Gunn shoots down Guardians of the Galaxy casting rumours
Last week rumours were being thrown around that Zachary Levi (Chuck) was in the running for the lead role in Guardians of the Galaxy as Star-Lord. He wasn’t among the initial names that had auditioned for the role but had supposedly impressed Marvel with his work on the next Thor. Lee Pace, Eddie Redmayne and Joel Edgerton had all tested for the film alongside Jim Sturgess who had (supposedly) been the one to make it through. Soon after Variety...
