The first Guardians of the Galaxy TV spot is now online!  When you own the network that airs a show that provides interconnecting tissue to your cinematic universe, you can get away with doing more than showing off a thirty-second teaser.  Enter Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which debuted a brief teaser during Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. last night.  The quick TV spot at that space-based property gave us a nice behind-the-scenes look at the film, along with commentary from Kevin Feige, and stars Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, and Bradley Cooper.

You’ll have to wait until August 1st to view the movie in full, but for now, hit the jump to watch the first Guardians of the Galaxy TV spot.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Will Feature Motion-Capture Thanos; James Gunn Says Film Connects to AVENGERS 3

With each new Marvel Studios release, fans are not only eager to dig into whatever solo adventure is on display, but also to see how the film connects to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole.  The recent Captain America: The Winter Soldier serves as a prequel of sorts to Avengers: Age of Ultron, setting up the story for Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated ensemble sequel.  We still have one Marvel film left to go before Age of Ultron hits theaters in 2015, but it’s looking more and more like Guardians of the Galaxy will be more removed from the immediate MCU than the other films—at least for now.

In the latest issue of EW, Guardians writer/director James Gunn spoke a bit about the film, confirming that big baddie Thanos will indeed appear in motion-capture form, and teasing that the pic very much connects to Avengers 3.  Read Gunn’s full comments after the jump, along with a few new images from the unabashedly weird-looking Guardians of the Galaxy.

Earlier tonight, director James Gunn and star Chris Pratt joined Marvel’s Kevin Feige in a half-hour Q&A on all things Guardians of the Galaxy.  While you didn’t miss any new footage or surprise guests, the trio was surprisingly open in their answers to questions from both fans and AMC’s John Campea who moderated the event.  Gunn described the film as being in “The Marvel flavor, but [having] a lot of old-school space opera about it.”  He also shared a story about how Pratt almost missed on the audition for Star-Lord completely.  The charismatic Pratt shared an anecdote of his own, and Feige teased a possible Easter egg in the films for fans of the comics.  Hit the jump for the highlights.

TOP 5: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Set Visit, POMPEII Interviews, FANTASTIC FOUR Casting, Toy Fair 2014

Landing just outside of this week’s Top 5 and earning an opening paragraph mention as a result is the first trailer and poster for writer/editor/director Ti West‘s The Sacrament. Obviously inspired by 1978′s Jonestown Massacre, the film features a team of journalists who attempt to document the story of a seemingly peaceful religious commune only to have the proverbial shit hit the fan in the process. I think West is among the best working directors in terms of creating and maintaining terror as evidenced by both 2009′s The House of the Devil and 2011′s The Innkeepers. Each of those films expertly sustain a sense of dread throughout and if Gene Jones hauntingly daring the visiting journalists to “Take it…” in this first trailer is any indication, The Sacrament looks to be cut from the same stellar mold. While it will be tough to match the psychological horror dealt out by 2011′s cult-centric drama Martha Marcy May Marlene, I’ll be anxiously anticipating West’s latest up until the time it hits VOD on May 1st.

Transitioning to the list section of the feature, this week’s installment highlights the first trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Steve’s set visit coverage for X-Men: Days of Future Past, interviews for and Matt’s review of Paul W.S. Anderson‘s Pompeii, casting news for Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot, and coverage from the floor of Toy Fair 2014 at the Javits Center in NYC. Keep reading for a quick recap and link to each of the above.

Well I’m sure we’ve all been singing “Hooked on a Feeling” for the better part of this week after the release of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy trailer on Tuesday.  There have been numerous articles, including a few of our own, going into the protagonists of the story itself; who they are, where they came from, and where they may be going.  However, it seemed prudent to change things up a little and delve into those characters looking to cause trouble for the lovable raccoon and tree duo, to say nothing of the other three Guardians (played by Chris PrattZoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista).  Let’s delve into the murky underbelly of Marvel’s next big undertaking by looking at all of the villains that are set to make appearances in director James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy.  Hit the jump for an in-depth look at the baddies of the Marvel comics.

Have you had enough of Guardians of the Galaxy yet?  Of course you haven’t, which means you’ll be happy to check out the debut poster for Marvel’s upcoming sci-fi adventure.  Fresh on the heels of the trailer drop and today’s multitude of short featurettes, the studio has unveiled the first poster for writer/director James Gunn’s (Super) comic book adaptation, and it’s pretty perfect.  In keeping with the off-beat tone of the trailer, the tagline for this poster is, fittingly, “You’re Welcome.”  Marvel is taking a big gamble on a largely unknown property with Gunn’s film, but everything we’ve seen thus far tells us that the studio is going all-in with Guardians’ inherent weirdness.  I’m certainly not complaining.

Hit the jump to take a look at the poster.  The film stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, David Bautista, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker, Peter Serafinowicz, Glenn Close, and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin DieselGuardians of the Galaxy opens in 3D on August 1st.

If you just can’t get enough of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy than this week should be putting a big smile on your face.  In addition to the film’s first trailer and a bunch of images, director James Gunn recently commented on some aspects of the film that will likely please (and tease) fans, while probably confusing the uninitiated.  Do you want to know if an Infinity Gem will appear in the film, and which one it might be?  Care to find out if Adam Warlock or the Black Novas will show up?  Perhaps you’d like to know when we’ll hear Rocket Raccoon actually speak, or when Michael Rooker, Lee Pace and Glenn Close’s characters will get some exposure.  And just who was that guy holding up Drax the Destroyer in the trailer anyway?  Hit the jump for answers on all of that and more!

Marvel has released the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy.  Led by half-human, half-alien Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), the team is comprised of humanoid aliens Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), talking raccoon Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Groot (Vin Diesel), a giant, walking tree.  If you were at last year’s Comic-Con, you’ll recognize a lot of the footage, but for the majority of audiences this first look gives a great sense of tone and the type of humor on display in the film.  We also get a solid look at Karen Gillan as Nebula and Benicio Del Toro as The Collector; a dozen new still images from the film can be found here.

Lee Pace, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou, and Peter Serafinowicz also star in the comic book adaptation directed by James Gunn.  Guardians of the Galaxy opens in 3D on August 1st.  Watch the trailer after the jump.

While rumored since filming began, Marvel has finally confirmed Vin Diesel will be voicing Groot in director James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy.  In addition, Diesel posted a picture of himself posing with the tree-like Groot, and James Gunn also offered his thoughts on Diesel being involved in the project.

James Gunn Talks GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, Working with Bradley Cooper, Dances around Vin Diesel Playing Groot, and More

It’s been said many times before and it will keep being said: Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel’s riskiest movie to date.  Judging by what we’ve seen so far, it’s not only going to be unlike any Marvel film, but also unlike many sci-fi space adventures in recent memory.  This kind of bold, daring movie needs a bold, daring, and twisted (in a good way) director, and it has one in James Gunn.

While walking the red carpet for Thor: The Dark World, he was candid about the movie, which is unusual for most Marvel directors.  However, because Guardians is so strange, Marvel may be trying to get audiences acclimated as soon as possible.  After the jump, Gunn talks about how we’ll see a teaser of some kind fairly soon, working with Bradley Cooper to get the right voice for Rocket Raccoon, the practical sets, and more.  He also dances around Vin Diesel‘s role in the film.  Guardians of the Galaxy opens August 1, 2014.

Marvel News: Joss Whedon Talks about Ultron; Tyler Bates to Score James Gunn’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

by     Posted 239 days ago

ultron-comic-book-slice

We have a few bits of Marvel news for you this afternoon.  In addition to talking about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Joss Whedon also touched on The Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Specifically, he explained his vision for the eponymous baddie.  Per EW:

“I knew right away what I wanted to do with him,” Whedon says. “He’s always trying to destroy the Avengers, goddamn it, he’s got a bee in his bonnet. He’s not a happy guy, which means he’s an interesting guy. He’s got pain. And the way that manifests is not going to be standard robot stuff. So we’ll take away some of those powers because at some point everybody becomes magic, and I already have someone [a new character, Scarlet Witch] who’s a witch.”

If you want to know why Whedon needs to pare down Ultron’s abilities, read this list of powers he has from the comics.  Also, Whedon’s statement regarding Scarlet Witch comes pretty close to confirmation that magic is a part of the movie rather than the interpretation of her ability to “calculate and control probabilities”.  Hit the jump for some Guardians of the Galaxy news.  The Avengers: Age of Ultron opens April 1, 2015.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY’s James Gunn Says Rocket Raccoon Is “Not About Putting Bugs Bunny in the Middle of THE AVENGERS”

One of the best panels I saw in Hall H at Comic-Con this year wasn’t even listed on the official schedule.  While Marvel definitely surprised fans with the unveiling of the title for The Avengers 2, the studio also drew great applause when the entire cast of Guardians of the Galaxy came out and introduced the first footage from the James Gunn-directed pic.  Though they’ve only been shooting for two weeks, the footage looked great and Gunn’s trademark humor brought the house down.  Guardians is a bit of a gamble for Marvel because it’s not a well-known property and the source material is, let’s face it, a little strange, but the footage definitely made it seem like this is the perfect marriage of director and material.

Immediately after the panel, Gunn took some time to talk a bit about Guardians now that filming is underway.  He discussed his love for Rocket Raccoon and what his take on the character entails, the unlikely casting of Chris Pratt as the protagonist, whether we’ll see the origins of the entire Guardians gang in the film, and how the pic fits into the larger Marvel universe.  Hit the jump to read on.

While the official Comic-Con schedule listed Marvel’s panel as centering on Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we knew from experience to expect a few surprises.  As such, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was greeted with great applause when he introduced director James Gunn and the entire main cast of Guardians of the Galaxy earlier today in Hall H, all of whom flew in from the London set just to appear on the panel.  While filming only just got underway two weeks ago, fans were treated to the excellent debut of some footage from the pic, while Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, David Bautista, Benicio Del Toro, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, Karen Gillan, and Michael Rooker teased what to expect from the film.

Benicio Del Toro nearly signed on to a major sci-fi film when he was in talks to play the villain in Star Trek Into Darkness, and while the deal ultimately never came to fruition, it appears that the Oscar winner is going to be appearing in a rather high-profile franchise pic after all.  Deadline reports that Del Toro is the latest actor to join the truly remarkable cast for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.  The nature of Del Toro’s role is being kept under wraps, but it’s said to be a significant character that is poised to also appear in future Marvel movies.  As such, Del Toro’s deal includes the option to appear in a number of Marvel films.  Could the villainous Thanos have finally been cast?  Hit the jump for more.
