Michael Rooker confirms Yondu return for Avengers: Infinity War

25 February 2017 4:44 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We already knew that Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Groot (Vin Diesel), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) are set to feature in Avengers: Infinity War, and now Michael Rooker has revealed we’ll have a full house of the Guardians of the Galaxy, confirming his return as Yondu with Instagram posts from the Atlanta set of the Marvel blockbuster…

Michael Rooker Potentially Confirms Yondu in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

25 February 2017 2:12 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Another Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 character is a virtual lock to appear in Avengers: Infinity War next year.

Michael Rooker, otherwise known as Yondu in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, took to Instagram earlier today and shared what at first appears to be an innocent picture with some lucky Starbucks baristas.

Upon closer inspection there are two pieces of evidence that connect him to Avengers: Infinity War. First, his ski cap has the new Avengers: Infinity War logo printed on it.

Also notice the Starbucks location: Peachtree City, Georgia. This town is adjacent to Fayetteville, Georgia where Avengers: Infinity War is currently shooting at Pinewood Studios.

Maybe Rooker was merely visiting the set and got the cap as a souvenir. That's doubtful considering Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista are confirmed to appear as Star-Lord, Gamora and Drax, respectively in Avengers: Infinity War. Vin Diesel and »

Yondu to Return In Avengers: Infinity War?

25 February 2017 12:47 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

By now, if you're a Marvel fan, you well know that the Guardians of the Galaxy are showing up in Avengers: Infinity War. And you probably also know that Michael Rooker's Yondu becomes an official member of the Guardians in Vol.2 , hitting theaters this summer. So it should stand to reason that Rooker will be part of the massive ensemble cast of Infinity War. Right? Well, we don't have confirmation from Marvel or Disney, but the man himself has offered one big hint that he will return in the next Avengers movie.

Michael Rooker recently shared two photos on Instagram that all but scream that he's returning in Avengers 3. As we know, the movie is currently shooting in Atlanta. Now, we know that Rooker is also in Georgia. And that he has an official Infinity War beanie. We also have proof that he was back in the blue make-up »

Here’s When You’ll Get To See The New Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer

25 February 2017 11:18 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

May 5th is quickly approaching and in just a few more months, we’ll get to embark on another intergalactic adventure with our favorite bunch of A-Holes. Of course, we’re referring to James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which will be with us shortly and is really starting to kick its promotional campaign into high gear now. Not that it needs to, mind you, as everyone and their grandmother will be checking this one out regardless, but we’re happy about it nonetheless.

So far, Marvel’s been pretty smart with their marketing, giving us just enough to excite and intrigue but also not spoiling anything from the plot. We really have very little idea as to what the Guardians will be up to this time around, aside from that it’ll be another thrilling outing, and honestly, we’re kind of alright with that.

Jurassic World 2 Begins Shooting, First Set Photo Arrives

24 February 2017 9:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Get ready for some serious (possibly weaponized) dinosaur action, because Jurassic World 2 is officially underway. Yesterday, crews were very busy in Slough, England setting up cameras and readying for the tremendous undertaking that is making a Jurassic Park movie. Today officially makes the first day of filming on Jurassic World 2, which was confirmed by Bryce Dallas Howard in a tweet that also included a brand new set photo.

The actress took to Twitter in order to declare that filming has begun on Jurassic World 2 by posting a photo from the set, which unfortunately didn't reveal too much. As far as set photos go, it is pretty unexciting, since it is just a picture of a chair with her character Claire's name on it. Even though the actual content of the photo isn't necessarily exciting and doesn't feature any dinosaur action, the knowledge that cameras are rolling on the next installment »

New trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 classified

24 February 2017 7:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the rather excellent extended Super Bowl spot [watch it here], it seems that Marvel will be giving us another look at this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in the very near future.

According to Trailer Track, the Alberta Film Ratings board has classified a new trailer for the hotly-anticipated Marvel sequel, which runs at 2 minutes and 20 seconds.

It’s unclear when the new trailer will arrive, but it would seem likely that it will either be attached to next week’s Wolverine solo movie Logan, or Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which opens on March 17th. Either way, expect it online first.

James Gunn confirms Rob Zombie cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

24 February 2017 6:39 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today James Gunn took to his consistently active Facebook page to confirm a Rob Zombie cameo for the summer’s hotly anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

“There are two things you can be sure of in my films,” teased Gunn. “1) There will be a character named Fitzgibbon. And 2) There will be a Rob Zombie voice cameo. Yesterday Rob came by to lend his voice to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Now it’ll be up to you guys to find it.”

Rob Zombie’s Streak Of James Gunn Movies Continues With Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

23 February 2017 11:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

He’s voiced Dr. Karl (Slither) and the mighty God himself (Super), but for Guardians of the Galaxy, Rob Zombie had a minor voice role as the Ravager known as Navigator. Wary of breaking the streak, it’s been confirmed that the writer-director-musician is back in the recording booth for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Word comes by way of Instagram – and later relayed through James Gunn’s lively Twitter feed – which confirms that Zombie voices a character in Guardians 2…and little else. Naturally, Marvel red tape (read: a strict embargo) kept the creative from disclosing details of his character ahead of time. That being said, in the spacefaring original, his voice played out through the Milano, Star-Lord’s beloved space vessel, so it seems more likely that Rob Zombie will be lending his vocal chords to a new character altogether, as opposed to reprising as Navigator.

Meet the Crew of ‘Alien: Covenant’ in 5-Minute Prologue

22 February 2017 7:32 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following in the footsteps of the last Alien film, Ridley Scott and company aren’t teasing their sci-fi adventure through strictly conventional means. To help introduce to the cast of this summer’s Alien: Covenant — consisting of Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby — a special prologue has been released.

Titled The Prologue: Last Supper, the five-minute short film directed by Ridley Scott’s son Luke Scott is set aboard the Covenant, the colonization ship that is taking a journey to a remote planet to form a new human settlement. In the preview, the main crew of couples, along with android, have a final meal before they are put to cryosleep. (Hopefully Chris Pratt isn’t hiding somewhere in the hull.)

Star Wars: Cool New Han Solo Cast Picture From Upcoming Spinoff!!

21 February 2017 2:48 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We here at Lrm Online have been understandably skeptical of the upcoming Han Solo Star Wars spinoff. That's not to say we didn't think it could be done, but we've questioned the need to keep on revisiting the well -- especially when we've seen different versions of that well in the past. However, as skeptical as we were of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, that one still managed to impress. With that in mind, we've decided to go into this Han Solo spinoff with an open mind.

And what a time to do so. The film is in production, and now Lucasfilm has released a new cast photo that's poised to get us all kinds of excited to see our favorite scoundrel set out on the Millennium Falcon once again.

Check it out below:

Looks good. My issue is that I have replaced Chris Pratt with the new Han Solo, »

Josh Gad and Chris Pratt Try (and Fail) to Get Star Wars Spoilers Out of Daisy Ridley

21 February 2017 8:55 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

A post shared by Josh Gad (@joshgad) on Feb 20, 2017 at 4:59am Pst If you think you're desperate to know the answers to all of the Star Wars theories floating around out there, you don't hold a candle to Josh Gad. The Beauty and the Beast actor is itching for information about The Last Jedi, so he decided to go right to the source to get it: Daisy Ridley. The actress, who plays Rey in the new trilogy, didn't give up the goods, although she nearly buckled under peer pressure not only from Gad, but also Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Penélope Cruz, Leslie Odom Jr., and more. "This has been a battle of attrition. #daisyridley has been a force to be reckoned with," Gad captioned the hilarious Instagram video of their encounter. "In many ways she is the Vader to my Luke or the Taylor to my Katy. But like any good opponent, »

Great Job, Internet!: Chris Pratt, Penelope Cruz, and J.J. Abrams badger Daisy Ridley for Last Jedi details

21 February 2017 8:11 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Look, the jig is up: Josh Gad has been whiling away the hours on the set of Murder On The Orient Express by trying to trick Daisy Ridley into divulging plot details of her other gig, a science fiction series about wizards and talking dogs called Star Wars. While first his ruse was pretty transparent, Ridley has continued to get tricked by him, and he even summoned the spectral presence of Dame Judi Dench to coerce her. Apparently none of it worked, so he has now pulled out the extremely big guns.

Bryce Dallas Howard, Penelope Cruz, Chris Pratt, Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, and many more are now in the action. For what it’s worth, Chris Pratt does not actually get around to asking her any questions, mostly just mentioning other film series that he happens to be in. Realistically, though, the time has come ...
