The Edgy Cameo Disney Refused To Let Stan Lee Film

40 minutes ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy is Marvel's weirdest, most outrageous film yet. It is also the first film of their's that has really pushed the edges of what can and cannot be gotten away with in terms of a Marvel/Disney films' sense of humor. Take the now infamous "Jackson Pollack"/Blacklight line that Chris Pratt has on board his ship, The Milano. Not even James Gunn could believe he got away with including those lines in the finished film. It is, indeed, a line that one wouldn't expect a Disney movie to contain, which makes the moment all the more funnier. However, there were still moments that had to be cut by the studio's mandate. Collider grabbed a moment with both James and his brother Sean Gunn at Dragon Con this weekend, and one of the moments that they had to alter was the appearance of intergalactic »

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 Won't Introduce Captain Marvel To The Marvel Cinematic Universe

2 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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. Because it.s Marvel Studios, we are guaranteed to eventually see the two groups of characters meet up, but that.s years away (presumably in 2019.s Avengers 3). But will the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy 2 create a stronger bond to Earth at all? According to James Gunn, the answer to that question appears to be no. The writer/director . who is basically just doing a victory lap at this point . was on hand at the annual DragonCon festivities in Atlanta, Ga this weekend, and during a panel he did with his brother, »

Guardians of the Galaxy tops the Us box office after a lacklustre Labor Day weekend

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Without much competition and a slow Labor Day Weekend, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy topped the Us box office for a second week.

Guardians of the Galaxy is now the biggest movie of the year, beating out Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction having added another $16.3 million over the weekend to bring its domestic total to $274.6 million. If it can maintain this 5% drop from last week, James Gunn’s space epic should have no trouble crossing the $300 million mark domestic, which would be the first film of 2014 to do so.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remained in second place with $11.7 million while If I Stay also managed to keep third place with $9.2 million.

The highest new entry this week belonged to found footage horror movie As Above, So Below which pulled in $8.3 million. Sadly for fans of busting ghosts but the re-release of »

Guardians Of The Galaxy becomes 2014's biggest film in Us

22 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy climbs to the 2014 box office summit in America...

Truthfully, who would have called this at the start of the summer? For over the past few days, Marvel and director James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy has become the number one film at the Us box office in 2014. It's now overtaken Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Lego Movie to earn that feat, topping the box office in the States once more over the weekend.

The film's current total stands at $274m in the Us, and it's expected to be the first movie this year to break $300m in America. It's not hitting to quite the same degree outside of America, bringing in another $273m there, for a combined $547m. Yet these are still sizeable numbers for an off-piste movie in a late summer slot.

The year's biggest movie globally is Michael Bay »

Gunn Thanks You For "Guardians" Success

31 August 2014 1:27 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Guardians of the Galaxy" became the highest-grossing 2014 film in North America this weekend, and is expected to pass $300 million domestically before it closes out its run.

Combined with the stellar reviews from the critics and the public, it still seems amazing a film based on a widely unknown property and featuring a talking raccoon and tree became the juggernaut it has.

Following the milestone yesterday, and a recent io9 article which attributes the film's success to it being "funny," director James Gunn posted a statement on Facebook:

"To quote my favorite little monstrosity, 'Oh... Yeah.' And although io9 may be right, that people like the movie because it's funny, I like to believe it's because We Gave A S--t.

You aren't numbers to us. You deserve to be given something we the creators believe in and that isn't just seeking a big opening weekend. I love my characters, I »

31 August 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When you think of beautiful redheads, it's likely that former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan will come to mind almost instantly. It was a shock then when the Scottish actress revealed at last year's San Diego Comic-Con that she had shaved her head for the role of Nebula in Marvel and James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, and a video of her doing just that has now found its way online.  You have to imagine that Gillan could have got away with Not shaving her head for the role, but the fact that she was willing to is pretty damn cool. Whether she'll do the same again for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 remains to be seen of course! What do you guys think? Sound off below!

Guardians Of The Galaxy Takes Down Captain America 2 To Become 2014's Biggest Domestic Hit

31 August 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy has been, without question, the completely dominating force at the August 2014 box office. Debuting on the first of the month, the film opened with a record-setting $94 million, and has spent 19 of the last 31 days holding the number one spot in the domestic top 10. It was just last week that we learned that this unbelievable success had led the movie to become the biggest blockbuster of the summer, but now it has accomplished a feat even bigger than that: Guardians of the Galaxy is the biggest film of 2014 in the United States so far. With an estimated $16 million taken in over the last three days, according to Box Office Mojo, the 10th film from Marvel Studios has now made over $274 million in the U.S., becoming the highest earner at the domestic box office going back to the start of January.

Box Office: Brutal Summer Ends With a Whimper, Season Down a Historic 15 Percent

31 August 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy easily remains in the lead at the Labor Day box office despite competition from new entries The November Man, the adult-skewing spy film starring Pierce Brosnan, and micro-budgeted thriller As Above, So Below. Although official numbers for summer 2014 won't be released until Tuesday, North American revenue for the season will barely crack $4 billion, marking an eight-year low and, when accounting for inflation, a 17-year low. And revenue is down 15 percent from last year's record haul of $4.75 billion, the biggest year-over-year decline that anyone

10 Lessons Comic Book Movies Can Learn From Guardians Of The Galaxy

31 August 2014 4:56 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Entertainment Weekly

If you haven’t been living under a rock you may have noticed that comic book films are big business. With 2000′s X-Men kickstarting the modern superhero film revolution, what were once cheesy tales of men in tights have now become some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters, and their overwhelming success has earned these new superheroes countless adoring fans around the globe.

But yet, no matter how much the internet splurges over the latest Marvel Studios release, the truth is that a lot of recent comic book adaptations have been pretty formulaic. Luckily, just as Marvel fatigue was starting to set in, James Gunn’s brilliantly written and directed sci-fi flick gave the genre the supercharge it badly needed, proving that comic based films could be self-aware, expertly paced and – most importantly - a shed load of fun.

So what can the film industry learn from Guardians Of The Galaxy? »

Director James Gunn Comments on Guardians of the Galaxy Becoming Highest Grossing Movie of 2014

31 August 2014 4:55 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Marvel took a huge risk with "Guardians of the Galaxy," since the characters weren't well known, two of them were a raccoon and a tree, and the entire film has a comedic tone. The gamble paid off, because "Guardians of the Galaxy" is now the highest-grossing 2014 film in North America. By the time it ends its theatrical run, it will gross around $300 million domestically. Plus, it still has an impressive 92% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. Now that it's one of the biggest successes of the year, director James Gunn posted a statement: "To quote my favorite little monstrosity, 'Oh... Yeah.' And although io9 may be right, that people like the movie because it's funny, I like to believe it's because We Gave A Sh*T. You aren't numbers to us.

Cosplayers are a creative and inventive lot, but I have to stand up and applaud sculptor Lee Hurley for his impressive creation, transforming himself into everybody's favorite tree creature from Guardians of the Galaxy, Groot. The detail alone is amazing. Lumbering around Dragon Con in Atlanta, he knew doubt got many looks of shock and awe, but the icing on the cake has to be, snapping a pic with Guardians director James Gunn aside, recreating a classic scene from the movie with Rocket Racoon's on set stand-in Sean Gunn.

30 August 2014 7:16 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Many of us had a feeling that Guardians of the Galaxy would be something special, but it seems fair to say that we couldn't have guessed just how special the latest movie from Marvel Studios would end up being. It's not only the best reviewed superhero movie of 2014, but now also the highest grossing in North America (box office analysts believe that it will finish its run with upwards of $300 million). Writer/director James Gunn took to Facebook today to share his thoughts on its success.  To quote my favorite little monstrosity, "Oh... Yeah."

Guardians of the Galaxy overtakes Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the highest-grossing domestic movie of 2014

30 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having crossed the $500 million mark earlier in the week, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has now overtaken Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the highest-grossing release of 2014 in North America. Guardians is projected to finish the Labor Day weekend with around $277 million in total, and is expected to fend off competition from The November Man and As Above, So Below to retain top spot over the four-day weekend.

It is also pretty much assured that the space opera will become the first movie to hit $300 million domestically, providing a shot in the arm to the North American box office, which has suffered its worst summer since 2006, with ticket sales down 15% from last year.

Guardians of the Galaxy sees James Gunn (Super) directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, »
