The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror recently held the 40th Annual Saturn Awards, celebrating the best of genre film and television at the Castaway Starlight Ballroom in Burbank, Calif. Gravity took home the most awards, with five statues, while Marvel’s Iron Man 3 won the inaugural Best Comic-to-Film Motion Picture award, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead both won three, and Hannibal took home Best Network Television Series. Special Saturn Awards recognitions when to writer/producer Bryan Fuller (Dan Curtis Legacy Award), Greg Nicotero (George Pal Memorial Award) and Malcolm McDowell (Life Career Award).
While at the event, Collider chatted with presenter James Gunn, in attendance with actor Michael Rooker, who plays Yondu in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. During the interview, the writer/director talked about creating exactly the movie he wanted to create, being able to go as dark as he wanted to go with the film, why it’s not as dark as Super 2 would be, the marketing of the movie, trying to finish the film before he starts the press tour in Singapore on July 7th (although he has some doubts that will happen), how lengthy the editing process has been, his learning curve with 3D, what he might do next, and whether he’d chose Daphne or Velma.
