With the news being released this morning that Awesome Mix Vol. 1 would be released on special edition cassette next month and Guardians of the Galaxy becoming the third highest grossing Marvel movie (as well as the highest grossing domestic release of 2014), it must be pretty good to be James Gunn right now.
But how is he celebrating the success? By writing the sequel…
“I spent all day on August 1st, the day the first movie was released, writing Guardians 2,” he told Variety. “I was so excited about it and I was finally able to let go of the last one and begin the second one. I always saw this as a universe, not just as one story.”
He also gave a scoop on what we can expect from Guardians of the Galaxy 2, “It’s going to be a really surprising open. What happens is all the characters are killed in the first 10 minutes, »

A week before Guardians of the Galaxy opened in theaters, en route to becoming the biggest movie of 2014 so far with over $372 million, writer-director James Gunn signed on to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy 2. The filmmaker teased new details about the sequel, including the possibility of new characters, during Variety's Entertainment and Technology Summit, where he joked about how the sequel will open.
"It's going to be a really surprising open. What happens is all the characters are killed in the first 10 minutes. In really horribly brutal fashion."
While there isn't a direct quote from James Gunn, the director does tease "fans may see the team adding members."

MGM has picked up a pitch from writer-director Steve Pink for the police comedy Cop Swap, after a bidding war broke out over the project this weekend.
Steve Pink is writing the script with his partner Jeff Morris, which is based on an actual international exchange program where cops from all over the world come to America. The story focuses on a black sheep Lapd cop, who is assigned to babysit a group of international cops, all of whom are misfits back home, and are undergoing a one-year internship. They all stumble upon a major crime being committed. The script deal is said to be mid six-figures against low seven-figures, which will be even higher when factoring in Steve Pink's fee as a director.
Every studio in town was interested in this pitch, but Deadline reports the pitches were sent out to just two studios per day, with Fox »

Marvel Studios’ space opera Guardians of the Galaxy continues to do well in China, and has now become Marvel’s third highest-grossing film behind The Avengers and Iron Man 3, surpassing this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the worldwide box office.
Guardians has now grossed $733 million worldwide, placing it in fourth place at the 2014 box office, behind X-Men: Days of Future Past, Maleficent and Transformers: Age of Extinction. It definitely stands a chance now of passing both Days of Future Past and Maleficent, which have grossed $746M and $757M domestically.
So much for the titular group of outlaws-turned-heroes being a “risky” bet for the studio, eh?
Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn 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, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, »

Stars: They’re just like you and me. They go to the beach, they order pizza on Fridays, and — you know — get 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day. Ok, maybe that last one isn’t so relatable, but it’s definitely worth talking about.
One major difference between celebrities and us earthlings is that Hollywood’s finest can completely transform their looks at the drop of a hat. Or better yet, with a needle full of Botox. Let’s take a look.
Now, it’s not just plastic surgery that reinvents celebrities’ bodies. Some stars like Jennifer Hudson transformed through diet and exercise. On the flip side, Star Jones lost a staggering 160 pounds after a gastric bypass surgery. And who can deny the drab-to-fab power of a new hairdo (and nose-job)? NeNe Leakes certainly can’t.
These star transformations are about to rock your world. Take a look at the gallery, »

After salvaging a summer full of box office flops, Marvel's Phase Two adventure Guardians of the Galaxy has passed the $700 million milestone at the global box office to become the true winner of the season.
Guardians of the Galaxy opened with a record debut in China last weekend, taking in an October-best $29.3 million, which helped put the superhero ensemble at $705.1 million worldwide ($326.7 million domestic, $378.4 million international). The opening weekend tally in China was the third biggest ever in the country, following Iron Man 3 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Guardians of the Galaxy is just the fourth Marvel movie to crack $700 million worldwide, following this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Iron Man 3 and Marvel's The Avengers. It is also the first Marvel adventure to crack that milestone as the first movie in a series, which doesn't feature previously-established characters.
Guardians of the Galaxy has earned the most internationally in the U. »
In the wake of its debut last weekend in China, where it bowed to $29.8 million, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on Wednesday crossed the $700 million mark worldwide. The pic has collected $326.7 million domestically and $378.4 million overseas for a global cume of $705.1 million, and it currently ranks as 2014’s sixth top-grossing film worldwide. Guardians, starring Chris Pratt, is the third Walt Disney Studios release of 2014 to pass the $700 million mark and the sixth in the last 18 months. It’s also the fourth Marvel film to reach that threshold, after

Thanks to its strong performance in China, Marvel’s space opera Guardians of the Galaxy has now passed the $700 million mark at the global box-office, with the Phase Two film currently just shy of The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s haul of $707.9 million with $705.1 million to date. It looks certain now that Guardians will overtake Spider-Man and fellow McU release Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($713.9 million), while X-Men: Days of Future Past’s $747.9 million is still a possibility. Either way it’s a superb result for Marvel and its “risky” little-known property…

Amy Poehler on the effects of cocaine and ecstasy.
The chapter, aptly titled "Obligatory Drug Stories" (via The Mirror), offers this candid confession: "I tried cocaine, which I instantly loved but eventually hated. Cocaine is terrific if you want to hang out with people you don't know very well and play ping-pong all night. It's bad for almost everything else … The day after cocaine is rough."
She also recalls taking ecstasy at a memorable Ucb (comedy group United Citizens Brigade) New Year's Eve party.
The crowd "danced and drank water and loved each other," she remembers »
Good news everybody! Jurassic Park is open for business! Or at least it’s good news if you are a velociraptor waiting for a feast.
Director Colin Trevorrow revealed the Jurassic World poster on his Twitter page yesterday, following his trend of releasing images and tidbits from the production on his social media accounts. Trevorrow tweeted the poster with #TheParkIsOpen.
The theme of the poster nicely echoes the logo-based poster from 1993 which featured the original red and black Jurassic Park symbol. The new poster also reflects the plot of Jurassic World which is said to focus on the re-branding of John Hammond’s dinosaur theme park several years after the dinos ran amok with Drs. Grant, Sattler, and Malcolm. The plot is rumoured to be about park operators upping the ante for blasé visitors who have become accustomed to the dinosaurs. Of course, coming up with something new and exciting »

Manuel here bringing you a double dose of dino-related posters. Jurassic Park and Toy Story, two seminal early 90s smashes continue to make waves in 2014. This shouldn't be so surprising seeing as they both function as perfect metaphors for Hollywood, one premised on the ability to bring back to life the dead and forgotten, the other quite literally representing a world where our cherished toys get a big screen treatment.
Jurassic Park, as we know is headed for a splashy 2015 summer sequel. Word on Jurassic World has been quiet (give or take a couple of pics of Chris Pratt in a body-hugging Henley) but since we are only eight months away (!), it’s clear publicity for the film will start kicking into high gear. This is necessary as they’ll be busy dropping plot hints and opening dates and casting rumors for the inevitable sequel by the time the film is actually in theaters. »

For a long time, it almost seemed as though the next sequel to Jurassic Park would never happen. With gradually diminishing returns from the previous two entries into the franchise (The Lost World and Jurassic Park III), prospects for Jurassic World were not the rosiest. But the film is finally going to see the light of day come June 12, and we now have our first glimpse of the ad campaign that will accompany it.
The first Jurassic World poster looks pretty much like the previous posters for Jurassic Park and its sequels: the famous logo, this time stripped of its color, looming at us out of a dark background. With the effective and simple tagline “The Park Is Open,” the poster does what it sets out to: make us excited to get back into that park.
Like the poster, the premise of Jurassic World is similar, but different, to its predecessors. »

Director Colin Trevorrow released the first official poster for his highly anticipated film, Jurrasic World. He tweeted the poster design that you see above, which comes along with the simple tag line, "The Park is Open."
We still haven't seen a plot synopsis for the movie, but we do know that the terrifying new adventure is set 22 years after the nightmarish events of the original Jurassic Park.
If you're looking for some spoiler filled details, click here. You can also check out some previously released photos here.
The movie stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D'Onofrio, Bd Wong, Omar Sy, Judy Greer, Katie McGrath, Lauren Lapkus, and Andy Buckley. The film is set to be released on June 12th, 2015. Hopefully we'll get to see a trailer soon! »
