Now playing around the world is director James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy.  As most of you know, the story follows five intergalactic misfits—Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), and Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper)—as they set out to protect a powerful and mysterious orb from the villainous Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace).  Loaded with great performances, an extremely funny script, and some fantastic action sequences,Guardians of the Galaxy should be a big hit with moviegoers and it helps to explain why Marvel was so quick to announce that a sequel is coming July 28, 2017.  For more on the film, read Matt’s review.

At the recent Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with James Gunn.  He talked about his reaction to everyone loving the film, deleted scenes, whether he would release an extended cut, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, how he’s thought about solo movies for the Guardians cast as well as a sequel featuring the whole gang together, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Note: This interview was done before Marvel officially announced Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

James Gunn:

  • What is it like for him reading all the positive tweets and people loving the film?
  • How long was his first cut?
  • Deleted scenes talk
  • Will he release an extended cut on Blu-ray?
  • Says they have between 10 – 15 minutes of deleted scenes.
  • Did he know about Marvel’s untitled release dates through 2019?
  • Will he want to make a smaller movie after this or would he be willing to jump right into Guardians of the Galaxy 2?
  • Has he thought about the story of Guardians 2?  Reveals he’s thought about solo movies for the Guardians cast as well as a sequel featuring the whole cast.

    I’d have liked to see his take on the Avengers, might have been less trashy. Good interview though he seems like a cool guy and I’m a big fan of GotG.

      “Look at me, guys, I’m so cool because I didn’t like The Avengers! Bathe in the light of my coolness, lesser beings!”

    The more I see of James Gunn, the more I like him. He seems like a quality guy. Fun guy.

  • CJ

    I hope Marvel taps Adam Green to make something.

    He is a Spielberg nut who has the chops to make that transition to genre guy to mainstream hack.

    The origin of how Rocket and Groot met would be a great spin-off.

      The only “issue” really I’d say about them, is that it seems like if Rocket knew Groot would’ve had the ability to do what he did to save them during the climax, he would’ve also likely known that Groot would’ve ultimately been able to survive doing it (even if, as is clearly the case, it’s going to take a good long while for him to regrow to normal, previous size). but a minor quibble.

    Steve, I love you man you’re energy and love for films is so appreciated in a world of cynical fan boys, but could you try avoiding the “first cut/deleted scenes” question? You waste so much of your time asking questions we’ll find the answers to in 3 months when it’s on blu-ray…There deleted for a reason, I’d rather you use that time to ask more about what drew them to the project,funny stories from set, their hopes for viewers, their experience making the film….once again I love you, its just my only pet peeve.

      Seriously, enough with the faux praise followed by shallow criticism, in which you feel personally affects your experience on the internet. Check the mirror, you ARE that cynical fanboy. Let the man do what he wants for fuck’s sake. Maybe try looking for the GotG set interviews/other articles posted over the previous months, Kanye.

    Yea there were at least 3 different moments once I came out of the theater, I realized that had been seen in promos but weren’t in the finished release.

    1. Nova Prime talking about “is our safety really in the hands of these people?” sorta thing…

    2. John C Reilly exhaustively saying “this might not have been the best idea…”

    3. and then Rocket saying “we’re the frikkin Guardians Of The Galaxy!!”… which, the later it got in the movie, I kind of started figuring that would be like the very last moment (and I’d REALLY hoped that he said “fucking” in the actual film, that it would be the one allowable F-bomb in a PG13 film), but then even as soon as we heard Quill say it to Ronan, I knew we wouldn’t then also get the Rocket moment.

    Can someone encapsulate the key points so we don’t have to listen to the interview. Content providers need to learn how people use the internet and digest information.

    • Zarles

      Dude, it’s a 4-minute video.

    I have to admit I didn’t know much about James Gunn before this movie, but now that this movie is out I’ll have to check out his other stuff. Great interview.
