'Guardians of the Galaxy' Clip Tells the Legend of 'Footloose'

15 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Guardians of the Galaxy is shaping up to be one of the biggest movies this summer, and with anticipation growing by the day, we have a brand new clip featuring Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana). A child of the 80s, before he was taken from Earth by Yondu (Michael Rooker), Star-Lord makes a number of 80s references throughout the movie, including this scene where he tries to coerce Gamora into dancing with him. When she reveals that she is a warrior and an assassin who does not dance, Star-Lord tells her the legend of Kevin Bacon's Footloose, although this seduction technique does not go as smoothly as planned.

In addition, John C. Reilly brought another "clip" to the Late Show with David Letterman, although it isn't quite what you might expect. We also have two more set photos from director James Gunn's Instagram account, one with »

28 July 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is such a fun ride, with great action, plenty of laughs, a ton of heart and perfect choices in music.  It will have you singing along, and cheering for the snarky Rocket Raccoon and a talking tree named Groot. During a conference at the film’s press day actors Chris Pratt (“Peter Quill”/”Star-Lord”), Zoe Saldana (“Gamora”), Dave Bautista (“Dax the Destroyer”), Michael Rooker (“Yondu”), Benicio Del Toro (“The Collector”) and Vin Diesel (“Groot”) were joined by director James Gunn to talk about what attracted them to this project, how liberating it is to not have to fit into the regular Marvel scheme of things, why Yondu is such a bad-ass, fighting the right attitude for Peter Quill/Star-Lord, the emotional journey of the story, the process for having the music organically come from and compliment the story, the physicality of these roles, why the movie references Kevin Bacon, »

Interview – Wamg Talks To Guardians Of The Galaxy Composer Tyler Bates

28 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Hollywood Records and Marvel are releasing three albums from Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy on Tuesday, July 29.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Deluxe soundtrack features classic 1970s songs from the film, plus score by composer Tyler Bates (“Watchmen,” “Slither,” “Dawn of the Dead”). Music plays a major role in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy as the great songs featured in the film are part of the storyline in a unique way.

Explaining how the songs come to play in the story, director James Gunn says, “One of the main story points in the movie is that Quill has this compilation tape [Awesome Mix #1] that he got from his mother before she died that she made for him. It was of songs that she loved, all songs from the 1970s, and that’s the only thing he has left of his mother and that’s the only thing he has left of his home on Earth. »

Thn Go Galactic At ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Press Conference

28 July 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Guardians Of The Galaxy comes to cinemas on Thursday and despite that is yet to be released, a sequel is already in the works. This may have something to do with the brilliant critic reaction; we at Thn have fallen in love with the film over the last few months and weren’t disappointed when we saw the film last week (see our review).

In preparation for the release we were invited to attend the press conference at the rather swish Corinthia Hotel. Having been completely smitten by the film we couldn’t say no, and spent thirty minutes in a room with director James Gunn, Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista) , and Nebula (Karen Gillan), as they answered a whole heap of press questions.

Vin Diesel was also scheduled to appear but was an unfortunate no-show, the reason for which was shared by James Gunn before events got underway. »
